I am really enjoying this personal photography journey I am taking with 17 fellow photographers. I like the push and motivation it gives me to think and contemplate my image for each week’s prompt. This week was a bit tough for me. The prompt was signs. I initially thought of street signs, store signs, sign language, the peace sign, etc. but I just couldn’t formulate an idea of an image I wanted to take. Then I talked to my mom on the phone from Florida on my son Luke’s birthday and my mom was crying and having a bad day…she is homesick. She lives in Florida for the winter with her husband and struggles with the fact that all of her 6 children and 7 grandchildren are back here in Western New York. I felt so sorry for her and our conversation weighed heavily on my heart. So I decided to take the literal meaning of the word sign and photograph my boys with a sign for Grandma. The boys had a snow day on Wednesday, so it was the perfect opportunity to get them together and snap a photo for Grandma and my photography challenge. We will send this to Grandma for Valentine’s day…I think it will cheer her up!
I am really looking forward to visiting all the other blogs in this circle and see what each of them photographed for signs. I hope you can too; you can start by checking out Jenn’s blog.
