::My mom, brother and I have a new photography project this year. Each month, one of us selects a word, and we take pictures prompted by that word. At the end of the month, I put the pictures together in a triptych.::
My brother chose the word for February: triangle.
My brother's sleek and triangular table legs, my mom's triangle of snow stuck in my grandmother's cyclone fence, and Aidan's ice cream cone.
Finding triangles wasn't easy at first, but once found, they started to appear everywhere. My ice cream shot was taken at the end of February, and while I was focusing on the triangular nature of the ice cream cone, I started seeing more triangles once I uploaded the photo. The edge of the table, the angle at of the table from my vantage point, Avery's elbow on the table. Then there are the triangles in the negative space - the space between the spoon and cone, the space behind Avery and around her shadow.
Even now that February is behind us, I can't stop looking for triangles.
A very triangular fence found on a recent field trip. More pictures of said field trip coming soon. Get ready for a photographic feast.
Thank you Robert for this very geometric photographic exercise! My mom chose the word for March:
Speaking of doors, Aidan was singing "Hello, I Love You" the other day, and I asked him, "How do you know that song?"
That song predates me! Avery answered the question for me: "Hello! You're our mom."
I guess I've been singing the song without realizing it! Today I'm singing, "One Less Bell to Answer". George is back to work and now I've got one less egg to fry (although I'm still picking up after him). Avery's singing along too, because, as she pointed out, I'm her mom. Singing and picture taking - it's all in the family.
