Some of my friends have been participating in a weekly photo challenge that I thought would be fun to do, so this week is my first attempt. The prompt is from Cee’s Photography blog.
This week’s prompt is SHADOWS. I took these photos with my iPhone in the last week, and though the quality may not be the best, they represent some of my experiences since I started babysitting my grandson, Tommy.
See my iPhone in the shadow? Poor little Tommy must think it’s a part of my face. I usually take at least a dozen photos a day of him. Just think–if I had to resort to holding all the pictures in my wallet, my purse would weigh about 37 pounds. I love my iPhone!
But one of my favorite past times is to take Tommy outside and experience the world through his eyes. To hear a bird for the first time. See the sunlight flicker on the leaves of a tree. Wonder about the roar of a jet engine that comes from the blue sky. To listen to the wind whisper to me as it brushes across my face.
And though I don’t think a video counts in the photo challenge, I’m posting a video I took with my iPhone today. It captures one tiny moment of our time in the backyard.
Maybe that’s what I like about this photo challenge. It encourages us to look at the world fresh and new. Thanks, Cee!
Here are a few of my favorite “shadow” photos from some of my travels:
