I am afraid that now that I have my new camera, I am going through some adolescent photographer growing pains. My blog is not only about the photo images - it's about, well, all sorts of things - thoughts, words, sharing happy times, ridiculous chickens, to name a few 'things'. Right at the moment, though, I am on a steep learning curve as I concentrate a little on what makes a moving scene. If my focused bent starts to bother you, give a holler, please! (By the way, I am, also, working strongly on how to edit!) Honestly, I am having sooooooo much fun with my Canon!!!
In this vein of thought, I had just found a blog that had been having a weekly party called "Creative Boot Camp". In the CBC, everyone who was participating would be given a word prompt and they would go and do something - anything - that spoke to the idea of that word. Unfortunately, I found it just as they had concluded their last week. Happily, happily, happily for me, though, everyone had such a grand time that they decided to continue the idea with a weekly venture called "The Sunday Creative". This week's word prompt was:
Well, then, what would you think of. I'm guessing that most of your thoughts would fly where mine did - to a flower (probably a rose) opening it's petals! Then, I thought of an open door and open window. I am fascinated with them since, those sunbeams and dappled sunlight (that I tend to happily stare at) often stream through them. What does 'open' mean? Well, that's obvious! The question is more, 'why?' The reason that I ever 'open' anything is so that I can let or get something in or out. Well, then, I had all sorts of thoughts that I may still follow through on some time. However, the word was given last Sunday and, here it is, Saturday, already. Last night, I was grabbing my camera to go and try to capture the golden hour. I was hungry and grabbed a peach and took a few bites and looked into my dining room and, there it was again, the beautiful glow of the evening sun shining through the open curtains on the table. It's a daily happiness that I enjoy. Do you know what I mean, I wonder? Well, I seized the moment and...
....here it is! A busy Mom's 'open'.
It is "taking a luscious bite of a beautifully ripened summer that is open full throttle!"
(I love that it's a still life. hee hee.)
