I have many ‘sources’ of inspiration.  There are my children, including my ‘daughter’ (the hairy one), the many forest preserves around where I live, lakes and ponds and anything which may catch my eye.

There is, however, one source ~ one pond ~ in particular – a few steps from my townhouse…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Motion

the final leg of the last relay of the last year of middle school….

*

*

It was a typical COLD May morning in the NW ‘burbs of Chicago – complete with wind and rain.  As always, the 8th grade boys ran their relays last – and this was the sectional tournament, thus many schools, many teams and many hours spent in the rain, in the wind – in the friggin’ cold.  The young man above is my son and he was coming in hard… I was not certain if I could catch a photo of the wind but I did!!  I wish I had a different camera, other than my i-phone (this photo was shot in 2012), however, it doesn’t really matter.  Peyton loves this picture.  His words were:

“Wow! I am airborne!  Cool shot Mimz!”

Weekly Photo Challenge – Early Bird

an Autumn morning –

*

As always, I take many photos of the pond beside my townhouse.  There is a reason for this – my daughter (the very hairy, three-legged one with big ears and a tail).  While she is doing her ‘thing’, I am typically staring over yonder and yonder is the pond!  The above photo was taken in the latter part of last fall.  The sun was rising behind me and the moon was setting in front of me.  This particular shot was taken around 6:10am.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Floating

 I have lots of photographs which reveal moments of floating, whether it be literally or figuratively.  I have many photographs of clouds in the sky.  I am always taking them – wanting to capture the ‘never to be seen moment again’ moment.   The photo I chose for this week takes both the literal and figurative into account, as well as the absurd and sadness which has, unfortunately become a common site in today’s society and our bodies of water.

Jordan took this photo last year, as a result of a class assignment.  He snapped a few wide angled shots which revealed more of the area around the bottle and this one, which was used for a film.  Water was the assigned topic and I suppose, you can figure out the ‘angle’ in which the film explored this very wet topic. {By the way, the shadows under the water are little fish.}

Weekly Photo Challenge – Blur

*

IMG_7677

the camera did its own thing…or did it?

*

This week’s photo must be attributed to my son – the aspiring film maker and out-of-the-box thinker (takes after mom).  Last year, he took a photography class and had access to some very sophisticated (and expensive) film equipment.  He took many pictures and many of them have been posted on my blog and featured in other weekly challenges.

The photo above was a complete mistake.  Jordan liked the view of the lake and was hoping the guy on the cell phone would move – he did not.  He decided to take the photo as is, due to the serenity of the shot and the relationship to the person on the phone.  Somehow, someway Jordan took this photograph.  Word has it, he got a bit freaked out – thinking he caught a moment where the spirits were passing by….

  Lucky for us, he did not scrap the photo!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Fresh

*

IMG_0542

a perfectly thawed out pond!

I realize this photo does not shout “fresh”, but for those of us who have experienced a cold and very drab winter, this picture of a thawed out pond is a welcoming sight.  In my neck of the woods, green has yet to pop its way to the surface unless it is a pine tree.  Also, a thawed out pond means the fountain will be operational soon and this make me very happy.  Oh! Let’s not forget the Great Blue Herons, Sandhill Cranes, egrets, ducks, geese and the leaping fish…they totally dig our pond…
