Thursday's Inspiration: Home
So here is my first attempt at a weekly dose of inspiration. The prompt was "home." Of course, I left it till the last minute, and it was dark by the time I wandered around with my camera yesterday evening. I could have used my speedlite, but I kind of like the warmth that the incandescent lamp lends to this image. Makes it kind of cozy, which is definitely a big part of how I feel about my home.
Some of you may know that this is my childhood home. My father built it with his own hands when I was an infant, and it is filled with reminders of my parents. In the photo above, there is a collection of shells and fossils that I have gathered over the years with my children. They are displayed in a Lenox bowl that belonged to my mother. There are books and a camera that belonged to my father, and one of my favorite plates, which I found a few years ago at a rummage sale. I'm a bit of a magpie -- collecting bright and pretty things -- and that is definitely a part of the word "home" to me.
I can't wait to see your interpretations of home! Thanks for playing along. :)
Here are the prompts for the next few weeks. Please include a link back to this post in your entry. Thanks so much! xoxo
