You Capture – My choice


Beth’s challenge this week wasn’t really so much a challenge in the normal sense, but it was a challenge because I had to choose what to take pictures of.  I’m not known for my decisiveness.  So I just went about my week snapping pictures here and there and hoping that some theme would come to me.

My theme came more from the editing stage.

SANY5240I love this picture of Sweet Pea.  Sass is taking swimming lessons, and this is how she passed her time – making a bed out of Sass’s towel and pretending to sleep.

SANY5246These are Sweet Pea’s shoes that she inherited from her cousin. They don’t quite fit her and constantly fall off her feet, so I have put them away until they do fit. (Which led to a “fit” of a different sort.)

SANY5255Sass at the park after trunk-or-treating. She was my cowgirl this year.  I went to take her picture and noticed the flag pole in the background and had to include it in the picture.  She looks so solemn.

SANY5254This is why she wasn’t wearing her cowgirl hat in the other picture.  She decided to practice her cartwheels.

SANY5258And last but not least, the park had this old-looking water fountain.  Sweet Pea was very upset that they had turned the water off for winter.  She was thirsty after I let her enjoy a piece of candy.

So what did you capture this week?  If you want to see more, head over to Beth’s.

  2. Great captures! I love the picture of the shoes! It’s so sweet…and wistful, I think. Or maybe nostalgic. I love it! The cartwheel one is great too.
