I Can See Into Your Soul

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above.

Black Hole

This summer, my former love and I took our combined bunch of children on a group vacation to Florida.  While we were there, we went to the Canaveral National Seashore.  I found this rotted stump to a fallen palm tree.  I was particularly struck by how I could see into the core of the tree – and how strong the tree was when it stood, yet how fragile it appeared now.  It was like looking into the soul of the tree.   So, I leaned as far as I could over the railing to take a shot “from above.”  I wanted to capture the tree’s “essense.”  I later found that adding the sepia tone, enhanced that feeling.

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above. From Above. Change your perspective on something. Share a photo of a subject which you shot from directly above.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Up.

In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture which means UP to you!

Clouds over the beach

Weekly Photo Challenge: Kiss


Monkey #2 and his best friend, Teddy.

Monkey #2 and his best friend, Teddy

This picture was taken two summers ago when I took Monkey #2 to North Carolina for some Mommy/Middle Monkey time.  He dragged Teddy everywhere.  Here he is giving Teddy a kiss while I am trying to set up the shot.  He was 9 in this picture – and was not (and still isn’t) ashamed of his unabashed love of Teddy.
