This shot deserved it's own post. Why not link it up with JOY?
I guess it also shows the uses of reflected light to bring out the colors. This is much brighter and more vivid than the whole quilt pictures we took.
I made a quilt for the birth of a close friend's first grandchild. This is the view of it inside the washing machine after it had gone through a cycle. This is how I want to remember this quilt. It is a JOY to welcome a child into the family. A joy to see my friend become a Grandmother; and a JOY to be able to make a quilt to welcome the child. It is a JOY to create ... and a JOY to recognize precious moments like this one.
I was also thinking about the other things that bring me Joy -- my dog (ALL my big black dogs), my family, creating ... making ... Back in the day Figure / Ice Skating brought me a tremendous amount of JOY, too. The joy of moving, of flying like the wind, of mastering the physical forces so you could defy gravity ... But I wasn't sure how to get a photo of that. It's much more about FEELING for me than watching, or knowing anyone up close whom I could photograph.
SO you'll have to settle for the joyous quilted visual above. ;-)
And now a joyful musical accompaniment :
Tommy Shaw - Sing for the Day
Stevie Winwood's Higher Love
I am participating in Denise Love's 2017 "Let's Do 52 : 52 Weeks of Photo Prompts" to kick start the lull in my photography. If you'd like to join us, find out more at the link above. The more the merrier!
