It’s in the eyes. This is week 32 of The 52 Project. The photograph that I choose this week, is one of my g’daughter, D. She and I were on a picnic where we laughed, talked and simply spent quality time. I took this shot as she turned away to look at by passers. Shakespeare, among others, is reported to have said that the “eyes are the window to the soul.” D’s eyes exemplify this adage. Looking into them, mesmerizes and draws you in and exposes a beautiful, compassionate soul.
I began this project intent on not missing a week. Unfortunately, illness and family obligations overwhelmed me to the point that I totally forgot last week’s photo. As they say, it’s not the falling but the getting up that is important, so I am back with a photo for Week 22 of The 52 Project.
This week, I have a photo of one of my little Picassos. This is my g’son, B., and he loves to paint. He has all the painting accoutrements, and I am especially pleased because I bought them for him as a birthday present, and it is heartening to see them bring him so much joy. Since he received them, he’s become a pint-sized artist. My wish for him is that as he grows older, he maintains his child-like curiosity.
Happy Easter to everyone. Today begins week 16 of The 52 Project. I am posting a shot of D., my seven-year-old grand-daughter. Unfortunately, she is the only one of my 6 ¾ grandchildren who was able to spend Easter with us, but fun was had by all. In between the cooking, Easter egg hunts, eating, and other excitement, I coaxed her to sit among a patch of Texas blue bonnets. Of course, she insisted that her new stuffed animal be included in the photograph. I think that both of them are little cuties. (Now, if I had any Photoshop skills, I am certain that I could have gotten rid of the car in the top right background, but alas, lacking that skill, the car stays.)
I apologize that I have to edit this post. I just realized that I am labeling the posts as though the week begins on Sunday instead of Monday. As a result, I am one week ahead. Thus, the correction. Thanks for understanding. xo
This is Week 13 of The 52 Project. This week, I post a photo of my 7-year-old granddaughter, D. She is very creative and, among other things, is always creating movies, most in which she acts. This shot was taken while she took a short break from her filming. The pink flower is a prop for the movie but I think that it draws the eye to her beautiful, pensive face. I love her natural creativity and the joy that she approaches everything she does. She has a bright, joyful light and spirit that touches everyone and everything around her. She is a shining jewel in this world. I love this little girl and I love this photograph.
