After a nice long three-day weekend with the hubs, I decided to pick up my camera and continue taking shots that had to do with the assignment that is due this Wednesday. While my assignment is complete, it never hurts to explore more possibilities.
And since today is a school holiday (Presidents’ Day) it was nice sleeping in an extra hour and taking things a bit slower than my usual Monday morning.
And with that, I started off the day with my camera, even before the hubs left for work.
I think I caught the sentimental bug a long time ago. While just a young gal in my very early 20’s, (21 ish) I picked up this old “memories” book at an antique book store in Darien, CT.
It seemed the right thing to do.
After all, it was a keepsake of Bernice. The pages are filled with beautiful well wishes from the mid to late 1880’s. I wish I could find the closest family member to pass this beautiful book to. For now, it’s in good hands.
The little jot up the center of this page reads – Ber remember “small particles of dust” – I wonder what special meaning that has between these two girls.
I thought it was interesting taking a few shots in the shadows of foliage outdoors.
While reading such beautiful well wishes for this girl, I’m reminded how life is fragile, short and special. And that planting seeds of kindness are sure to reap something special.
Another idea was to shoot one of my favorite dolls. I’ve always been a nut about dolls. These days, my favorite dolls are the porcelain dolls we picked up in Asia many years ago.
It was a lot of fun capturing these images in the early morning light streaming thru the window.
Yi Sun-shin – April 28, 1545 – December 16, 1598 – Yi Sun-shin was a Korean naval commander, famed for his victories against the Japanese navy during the Imilin war in the Josen Dynasty.
We picked up this carving during our stay in South Korea to “remember” with them.
May the memories we make last a lifetime and may we not forget to pass them down to the next generation.
