Week #3 – Looking Up

11 May

My fellow photography friend eFe  invited me to be part of  a group Project 52 and I gratefully accepted. It is a lot more fun doing this project with others. We do have a language barrier to overcome each week but I am so honored to be doing this project with them and seeing the world through my friends eyes.

Our theme for this week was “looking up” and while I didn’t take the challenge literally I think what I captured really represents this feeling for me at the moment as in “things are looking up”. Five weeks ago my mom had open heart surgery and today she is doing amazing. She is already trying to do way too much  but it is so good to see her out and about and enjoying her new life.

    I was just thinking I hadn’t seen anything from you for awhile.

    So glad to hear your mom is doing well. I love this image.

    I LOVE THIS PICTURE!! It is so stinking sweet. Happy to see she is starting to get back to normal. I love her <3.
    I was wondering if maybe you turned your blog into a monthly blog, or the idea Chris had 🙂
    Love you!

    It’s a beautiful image, Mindy! I just love the simplicity of his photographs, it delights me. Hence I’m also rooting for her mother. The theme of next week comes out tomorrow on twitter with the tag # Projeto52. ;)Beijos!

    Love this today Mindy. I am so glad that your mom is doing well. I am glad that everything is going better for you, and I love your 52 week idea! I am still on my first 365 day journey, but it really gives me something to look forward too.

    Way to go girl – fabulous image, truly one of your best! I’m with Susan on your capturing the theme – perfect!

    So delighted to learn of your mother’s success and miss seeing your blog daily, so am also pleased to see this, this morning.

    Beautiful picture, as always, Mindy! I’m so glad your Mom is doing so well! We had a heart scare with my Mom, but she turned out to be in pretty good shape in that respect. Esophageal spasms masquerading as heart attacks. Scary for her, but easily treatable. Give big hugs to your Mom from me and my Mom!

    I just love this shot Mindy…I always think of you when I photograph rail road cars and tracks…the perspective and black and white processing is sensational! Hope all is well…sounds like things are “on track” (couldn’t resist)…Hugs!
