Picture Winter: Intended for Everyday Use
It seems that the subject for my prompts have just fallen into my lap these past few days and this day was no exception. Today’s prompt was to pay “attention to what we use, eat, look at every single day, without fail.” The challenge in this was to capture something that wasn’t completely boring or to put it in a light to make it shine so to speak. I was just about to leave the house for a walk with Stella and a friend when our power went out. I had no idea how to get my garage door open so I called my friend who walked me through it (very simple). As I was pulling down the garage door it dawned on me (lightbulb!) that something we use every day and take so much for granted is electricity. While on the walk I thought of the many ways I could capture electricity or lack thereof. Decide on one of the many pieces of our everyday puzzle and get to know it a little better. Showcase it in your photo today and give it the recognition and appreciation it deserves. Adding the texture to this photo and making it look a lot prettier than it would otherwise was my way of appreciating electricity.
I also brought my camera along on the walk. I so enjoy these walks with my friend, Rachel. The dogs have an absolute blast and Rachel and I chat away.
Rachel and I chat about family, friends and school since our kids are close in age. In the spring we’ll chat about golf. 🙂
It’s definitely therapy for us and great exercise for the dogs.
