52 Photos ~ Celebration


28 weeks in to this photo project and this is the first one that really stumped me.

This has not been a celebratory week. Things are breaking left and right. Bones, feelings, electronic gadgets, automobiles.

I went marching out today with dog and camera, daring the world to show me something to celebrate.

Then, of course, it was staring me in the face. All of it.

Darn it. Look around.

There’s the obvious sunrise, of course, and the dappled clouds. The foggy hills and leaf littered path. The dog’s happy tail and the crow with its prize.

Then look further.

Microwave popcorn. Thick paperback novels. Shoes that fit. Glass. Ink. Record albums. Soap. Carrots. Mantis shrimp. Mittens. Bricks. Wheelbarrows. Instant read thermometers. Pencils. Wool comforters. Knives.

Gravity. Oxygen. Rotation. Atmosphere. Orbit. Hydrogen.



This photo and post are in response to this week’s theme for the 52 Photos Project. You should participate, too! Read about how it works here. You can see a gallery of everyone’s photos for this week’s theme here. To see a list of all my blog posts for this project, go here.

      Thank you! The crow capture was pure luck, as most of my photos are. I love that he (she?) had that apple in his mouth.

  2. Jill S. says:

    It really is perfect. 😀

  3. Even when all seems broken, we have to look for the reasons to celebrate. I’m glad you found some 🙂
