Week 43 #52Frames – Reflections 2020

Reflections, my submission for week 43.

Title: Looking Up by Looking Down or Looking Down to Look Up

Description: This was a lot of fun. I love reflection pictures, and did not realize there were so many reflection opportunities. There is the obvious mirrors, there are the outsides of windows. Those were the two that I played with in multiple ways. I whittled down to a final three. This one is my favorite, because it is the first idea I had, and it turned out better than I thought it would. I took my hand held mirror into the back yard and laid it on the ground, then I snapped the shutter. This one was my favorite because you can almost tell that Fall is in the air – some leaves are changing color, instead of just falling off.

I also tried taking a photo of myself in the mirror while holding the hand mirror. The other was down the side of the house with the back wall reflecting in the windows.

Here are the two other finalists.


Day 12 #OctPoWriMo – Playing

Morgan asks us today to be playful. To remember playing as a child. I tried to write a tongue twister, but none of them worked out.

Then I remembered that I have lots of photos of grandchildren playing. This is one of my favorites that Jim took on that day almost 12 years ago, when two of our children and their families came to the old homestead to tell mom goodbye. The littles didn’t know any better and were able to play outside. At the time, we only had 3 grandchildren. Now we have eight.

Leaves are to play in
Building forts and planting flowers
Grandchildren's final goodbye
