In this weeks Pixelventures the criteria is the following:
the prompt is My Favorite Photo. That’s right, I want you to go into your archives and choose that photo which you really liked – that made you sigh with contentment. The only hitch is that that photo must have been taken in 2014.
It can be experimental, black and white, romantic or a great macro – as far as that goes, any subject or any format is good for this prompt to day…all I want to see is your favorite photo…and for you who like to write, add a poem or a story that the photo inspires in you.
As most of you know I went away on holiday recently so coming back with over 700 pictures, many to still sort, some however have already made it to my flickr page which you can find in the header area of this blog or here.
On my flickr and on this blog I don’t post anything that contains a full on facial features of my children, I am just quite protective like that and super cautious however as you can imagine there are plenty of my ‘fave photos’ with them in.
However, there is one photo which I recently uploaded which really sticks in my mind and brings a smile to my face whereas it might not to others and for that reason also, because I know the reason why it means so much to me it makes it all the more one of ‘my fav photos’.
Why is this?
I spent a good long while bedridden, then housebound and it is only just recently that I am able to get out a lot more. Having times like this and suffering chronic pain, really makes one appreciate ‘other’ things in life that I might just have taken for granted before.
This woman would come zipping past the chalet we stayed in daily. She was heading down to the sand dunes then beach, I have absolutely no idea how she got her wheelchair over the sand, it is hard enough walking, let alone taking wheels over thick moving dry sand before one encounters the slightly easier wet sand.
Also she wasn’t just taking herself, but also not one, not two but THREE dogs haha, brilliant. They were all superlative in behaviour putting mine to shame and we always had a few words and a smile to exchange to one another over the picket fence.
As always thank you for reading/viewing!
