Two hundred and thirty four

I really love this photo! It was evening and the sun was shining just right through the window of my old bedroom at my parent’s house. My daughter and I were hanging out. She was playing on the floor and we had the radio on. I decided to take some shots using the lovely light. It took a few trys to get the angle and composition right. It came out better than I anticipated. I love the lighting, composition and reflection. The reflection looks so different from what I myself look like in this photo. It really brings up questions about perception and reality. The fish bowl theory comes to mind. How a fish in a bowl sees the world distorted through his molded glass. Is that how we see the world? Through our distorted eyes, views, beliefs and experiences? Just a little deep philosophical thought for you. Discuss! 🙂

One hundred & fourteen

My husband and son had gone out for the night. It was a bit chilly, but nice, so my daughter and I went for a long walk. The sun was going down, so I stopped to take a shot. The Fort Hood Army Airfield is behind me, as well as the sunset. Funny story for the night, my daughter had lost one of her shoes on the walk; she was riding in her stroller. I didn’t realize it until we got home. I had to wait for my husband to get home and then I went back out to find it. Of course it was at the end of my walk that I found it. Overall I walked over two miles that night, thanks to her kicking her shoe off. Great exercise! This is not one of my favorite photos, but the memory of the evening was pleasant.
