I love a serious or metaphorical theme as much as the next photographer… but this week, let’s just have some fun.
When I go to my favorite place for lunch, I like to sit across from this Ice Cream freezer.
I like the picture, it reminds me of being a little kid and begging my Mom for extra money so I could buy one of the ‘fancy’ treats from the Ice Cream Man.
I haven’t actually bought anything from this case, I just like to look at it.
It makes me smile.
When I turned 50 one of my friends said to me, ” When you turn 50 the world ignores you and you shouldn’t wear pink because that’s a ‘ young woman’s’ color and now is your time to celebrate becoming a ‘crone’ ( which I learned is what you become when you hit menopause.) and that from this point forward only “Crones” will find you interesting and of any value to society in general.
Every time I see this picture I think of how royally screwed up my ‘friend’ was and I’m glad to say that almost 2 years after being told that by her I have learned what she said is utter bull pucky.
This is painted on the bus shelter wall at my bus stop.
Sometimes I just stand there for countless minutes and look at it and think, ” Why are you here?”
This is a picture of the Sun.
You know what they say, ” It’ all fun and games until the Sun Goes Super Nova and we all die”
I was out walking my dog Hamish this morning and at our favorite park I found this great chalk drawing of somebody’s sunny day- they were sitting where we were standing looking up and seeing what we saw: the sun, the trees across the street and those splashes of blue are placed exactly where the blue playground equipment is.
I don’t think any camera, any artist could have captured what this young artist captured- they captured a moment in time and when me and Hamish found it we went to where to where that young artist was…
