I found this on the floor of the nursery today. I am not quite sure how to categorise it, but the position and relevance to the setting reminded me of Installation Art works. Heheh.
My life is all about holding onto fleeting, precious moments. As mum with two young children and a passion for capturing those moments with photography I never get an opportunity twice. My subjects don’t cooperate and have no concept if keepubv these times to look back on in the future. Often the images that appeal to me (particularly recently) are abstract in some way. This one shows the joy of a family working together to create a working windmill.
“Love and warmth given. Expected nothing.”
Marion at Figments of a Dutchess had this challenge posted on her blog when I randomly came across it just now. She asked us to write a story about pets consisting of only six words. My story popped into my head immediately. Its not something I have done before, but why not?
I was baffled as I took this photo on a self guided tour of Adelaide’s street art, at the number of people who walked right by and didn’t even notice the amazing work of art staring down at us! Even as I stood there photographing it only a small percentage of the passersby bothered to look up at what I was seeing. It pays to look around!
That blue blur is my son.
My husband was looking at old photographs in black and white tonight as research for his work. They were historical and had that “feel” about them that old photos have. I was then looking at a photograph I took today at Waterfall Gully in Adelaide, South Australia and I felt it had the same “feel”. I grabbed a sepia filter and voila. If it wasn’t for the line of cars in the carpark you might mistake it for a different time.
