Welcome back to my Fifty-two on Fridays post. I am a lucky lucky girl who participates in a Project 52 with 17 other fabulous photographers from The Bloom Forum. Each week we work from a theme and post our creative interpretation for that theme. Remember that at the end of each post you can link to the next photographer and her take on the theme.
This week our theme was Books. Books in our home are the foundations to imaginations. From childhood into adulthood I have found joy in losing myself within the pages of books. Quiet can overtake me when my imagination is locked into a story. You know the pages within the bound covers of a book have become your friend when you dread to start the next chapter for fear of its end.
I love books. I love to just wander the aisles of book stores and libraries. I like to collect my favorites, put them on my shelf, stack them on my beside table. My love for books is even greater when I watch my children, wide-eyed lose themselves in a story.
My interpretation of the theme this week is pretty simple. It is my children joyfully reading one of their favorite books, the Bible. Reading alone or reading together, sharing with each other and me the wonderful stories within.
It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it. ~Oscar Wilde
And here is my out take for the week. You know that the kids have taken a really long nap, when I have the time to snap the “artistic” photo of one of the books I’ve check out from the library. I loved the play of light the other day in my living room and was practicing shooting with different light, with differing depths of field…just for fun.
