My4Hens: Project 52

My4Hens Project 52 is a group of photographers who take photographs on a specific subject each week for 52 weeks.  This is the second year I am part of this project.  I find that it stretches me to think outside the box on the best of day.  I hope you follow along as I update each week.

Week 1:  Topic: Fresh

I had originally found a great weed that had just opened up in the garden.  Sadly when I went out this morning to take the photograph my husband had cut the lawn and my great weed was gone.  Walking around the garden I noticed a brand new bud.  We had transplanted this plant some months back and I was convinced it would not survive.  I was pleasantly surprised today to find new buds all over the plant.  So this is my interpretation of Fresh.

Week 2:  Topic: Story Telling

This tiny Bible tells the story of my grandmothers family – their births and deaths. For me, who is interested in genealogy this was a treasure to find. All of this generation and almost all of the next generation are now dead, but it is good to remember them and their stories.

Week 3:  Topic: Light 

Light was a fairly hard topic for me, not having a model, however, I had a lily in my office window and with a little bit of positioning I was able to use natural window light to take this particular photo.

Week 4:  Topic: A Part of Me

When you are part of a photography group, you are stretched, without a doubt, sometimes you share happiness, other times you are vulnerable. Today the topic was “A Part of Me” and it took me to a place of memories.

A part of me will never swing on a swing, or spin on a merry-g- round. 27 years have gone by and still there are days when I remember that a part of me is missing. A 4.5 month in the womb, my little baby’s heart stopped beating. And on my birthday that little part of me was removed from my body. Not a year goes by when I don’t think of what could have been. Yet I hold fast to the belief that despite the fact that the heart stopped beating, that my little one was fearfully and wonderfully made, and that one day I will fully understand why this was not to be.

Week 5:  Topic: Small

For something so small this Caterpillar is sure making a meal of my plant.
