P52 | Week 4 | My Town

I think of a country song when I hear the phrase “my town”….not sure I like that or not. Last night, I went out and shot around fifty pictures of various things, and this is the one I chose to use. I picked it because it’s personal to me. The other images may have done a better job of representing a majority of the people where we live, but for our family, this image is a good reminder of what this town has meant to us.

We moved to this town because of this field. My husband spent countless hours here for six years, and I spent many, many Friday nights cheering he and his team to victory after victory. There honestly weren’t too many losses to speak of, but the few there were, were hard. He loved his time here, and even though he’s moved on to another school and team, this place will always hold a special spot in our hearts.

{side note–I wish I had a wide angle lens to use here. Love my nifty fifty, but on my crop camera it doesn’t always capture as much as I’d like…}

P52 | Week 2 | House on Fire

House on Fire…this prompt did not mean what I thought it would initially. We were encouraged to photograph something(s) that we would insist on grabbing if our house were on fire. This lovely Ikea box holds precious, priceless images and videos and would be one of the first things I would grab if our home was being destroyed.
