You’re embarking on a round-the-world-adventure, and can take only one small object with you to remind you of home.What do you bring along for the trip?
If I’m only allowed one small object on my year long round-the world-adventure. If I’m away from home for 365 days, it is impossible to take one small object with me, let me think some more about this.
I will have to take my family photograph. I have a lot of memories of the day this picture was taken. The photographer gave us our appointment for 11:30 am. Neither my husband nor I thought anything about the time we were given the kids were very young, the youngest one was less than two.
By the time the photographer got the place ready it was past lunch time, the youngest one came to me without saying anything she opened my bag and started looking, this was one of those days when mom didn’t have a candy in her bag. The poor child was so hungry she started crying, my husband blamed me for not carrying some food in my bag. The damage was done no matter how much I was blamed the little one’s hunger would not go away.
The clueless photographer as they all do thought she did not like her picture taken, the crying was getting louder and we were embarrassed, I told my husband to tell the photographer the reason she was crying, little thing like that made my husband stick to his pride, he was not going to say his child is hungry. I thought it was time for me to speak, I said,”She is hungry.”
The photographer apologized and found a lolly pop, gave it to the hungry child and calmness returned. this I think will be excellent, because I’d think of the day the young one cried.
Describe a typical day in your life– but do it in a form or in a medium you’ve rarely –if ever –used before. If you’re a photo blogger write a poem.If you’re a poet, write an open letter. If you’re a travel blogger, write a rant. (these are all examples —choose whatever form you feel like trying out!)
Day before yesterday was a fine day,the sun was shining the birds were chirping, the whole city came alive, the past several days it was cold,rainy, windy, it was as if Nature has decided to punish us for what we do to it on a daily basis.
However that day it was superb, I ventured to take my camera and capture this awesome day in my photographs. I’m not a photographer, I haven’t learned the technical aspects of photography, why this is so, is because I didn’t invest any time learning this craft. To me it is look through the camera lens and click, this is what I did, my performance was shabby, I am embarrassed to admit. The tree looked like a stump, the birds were not recognizable.
I tried again a second time, this time my concentration was on houses, let me tell you they looked hideous, I packed my bag and came home, my attempt to take pictures made me realize, I have to spend some quality time learning how to take awesome pictures.
If you could learn a trade — say carpentry,electrical work,roofing, landscaping,plumbing,flooring drywall — you name it what skill(s) would you love to have in your back pocket?
I would love to be a photographer, this skill would give me all kinds of opportunities . I’d photograph every interesting thing I meet on my walks. At the end of the day I will feel proud that it’s my work and no one else’s.
My aim is not to be famous but enjoy doing something I always wanted to do.
In this universe of ours we have so many varieties of people places, and things , if the interest is there one could spend a lifetime photographing God’s creation and not worry about fame or fortune.
This is something I’d love to have in my pocket!
