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 have to say that I am really digging doing these “theme weeks” as it gives me something to focus on rather than wondering around just looking for something to shoot.
The new theme for the week is repetition. I am almost obsessed with finding repeating patterns, shadows, objects, colors etc… in a shot and so I thought it would be fun to make it my theme for this week. I have no idea what draws me to patterns other than my crazy brain but any time I see a shot with that type of composition I am instantly intrigued and until you look for it you have no idea how many repeating patterns you see every single day of your life.
The shots for today’s blog are of course dedicated to my mother because it is Mother’s Day and because she is not only the best mom in the world but she is the most wonderful woman in the world. She loves flowers, well nature really, but every birthday and Mother’s Day we usually end up at the nursery buying her some new flowers to plant around her house.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful women out there who do the hardest job on earth.
