(Almost) Wordless Wednesday – Meet me at the water pump..now!

What do you see when you look at this photo?  Does it make you think of possible stories about things that happened at the water pump many years ago?

Coming to Life

Today was another chilly and rainy day here.  However, I did not let that stop me from taking a few pictures.

My yard is starting to come alive again.

Tag Your It!

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” by Don McCullin

 

Today I watched these two little squirrels chasing each other up, down and around this tree.  They were fun to watch and photograph.  It made me remember times when my bothers and I would play “tag your it”, “Mother May I” or kickball in this same backyard many years ago.  It brought back fun times.

Mid-Day

“A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective.”

Art of Observation

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

Quote of the Day

“We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us.”
by Ralph Hattersley

 

 

These two here are always fussing.  You would never believe that one is 11 and the other 4.  They argue as if they are the same age.  I tell Caila all the time “Why are you having an argument with a 4-year-old?”.  She never has an answer.

I like how I was finally able to capture a peaceful moment between them without being directed to “be nice”.

 

As always, thanks for visiting!

Ice Breaker

Happiness is not ready-made, it comes from your own actions.

– Dalai Lama

I met this little boy today his name is Malik.  He was a little shy with me at first so I decided to break the ice with my new bubble machine.  What kid or adult  does not like bubbles?  Needless to say it worked, he was no longer shy with me and had a blast chasing down the bubbles.

Art is knowing which ones to keep.”

A Camera Imitates

While checking out pictures on Instagram I came across this quote on simplescenesimagery page:

Camera

Focus on what’s important

Capture the good times

Develop from the negatives

And if things don’t work out

Take another shot!

I thought this was a perfect way to see things.  Sometimes when we break things down they make more seems.
