Mother and Son – Alone Amongst Many

What does pedestrian mean to you? Perhaps this is a great chance to go out and practice some street photography. Maybe you’ll capture something truly “pedestrian” — something that could use a dose of inspiration. Regardless of how you interpret this challenge, I’m looking forward to seeing the results.

– … and she loved a little boy very, very much―even more than she loved herself.” ~ Shel Silverstein, The Giving Tree ~

While skimming through photos I found several of my daughter and grandson walking amongst pedestrians. Although with many they seem alone – one heart and soul – walking in loving connection.

“If a man has been his mother’s undisputed darling he retains throughout life the triumphant feeling, the confidence in success, which not seldom brings actual success along with it.” ~ Sigmund Freud ~

“Sons are the anchors of a mother’s life.” ~Sophocles ~

Re-experiencing life through new eyes – watching my daughter’s and their sons interactions brings me back in time to the joy in sharing time with my son as a little boy. We would sit together every night reading stories, sitting on the floor playing cars, walking along the sidewalk in front of our house. Wonderful memories of a special time.

“Be careful to leave your sons well-instructed rather than rich, for the hopes of the instructed are better than the wealth of the ignorant.” ~ Epictetus ~

WPC – Surprise

Much of photography is about discovery, and with discovery may come a surprise.

This week, share a surprise with us, as you see it through your lens. We’re excited to see what you share with us!

When visiting my granddaughter and her boyfriend in New Mexico this past weekend I was greatly surprised by the views and many sites along the way. Bandelier National Monument held many surprises along the path.

I was quite surprised when I actually made it to the top of the 1.5 mile trail that led to the top of the mountain. As you can see the people below looked like ants. After the climb up the mountain we went back down and continued along the path across the stream which lead to the waterfall and additional surprises like the view of the Rio Grande in the distance. I called everything we saw eye candy. What a beautiful state New Mexico is and what surprises around every corner.
