When we travel we are outside our normal everyday life situations, we are observers. The opportunity to see others day-to-day experiences are part of what makes traveling such a rich and rewarding experience.
A few years ago, I started feeling like my grandson was growing up at an alarming rate and I thought how different his hands would look in a few years, so I started taking pictures of his hands doing everyday things.
I love the way small, plump, dimpled hands look when they are lifting the bowl to drink the last bit of milk out of a bowl of cereal.
I worked for years as an arts administrator with a touring theatre company and a visual arts organization. The way arts organizations are able to transform a space always amazed me. When the theatre company set up for a show in the local fire hall, it was transformed into a theatre by 8 pm that night, complete with a stage, lights, sound and seats arranged for an audience. In this case, a juried exhibit, youth exhibit and exhibit of work from the community workshop filled this church basement with art. The arrangement of the art work made you forget you were in a church basement which was more often the location of Brownie and Guide meetings, AA meetings and church lunches.
Although chairs were arranged for the opening, it was standing room only. Gathering of the Arts opening receptions in Antigonish always draw a big crowd.
Usually people are looking out windows at the farm animals.
This is Lily. She is a large horse that was born on our farm. She became a big ol’ pet. For awhile she was getting out of her fence early in the morning and when I came downstairs she was always waiting at one of the windows for me. One morning she even climbed up the stairs to the front deck. Thankfully she was easy to put back in the fence.
