September's edition of the Photo Heart Connection over to Kat's place. A great chance to reflect on the photos you've taken over the past month, select one most meaningful to you, and share how much or little about why it touches you. Thanks Kat.
Never too late to join in. Never an obligation. Fits me to a T.
This is one of the first photos of my father I've been able to "score". Oh I've taken plenty....but haven't been able to catch one I like. I think it's because he is an energetic and expressive person. I have found I get all kinds of goofy-faced results when I take photos of people who use a lot of facial and hand expressions while talking. In fact he's talking here, but he's telling me something on the "hush-hush" so he's keeping it low key.
My father turned 77 this past month. He still works every day, drives with plenty of zip on the accelerator and without overusing the brakes, and is all go. He knows everybody in town or so it seems as every week-yes every week-I hear "oh, you're John D's daughter". I also am told I look like my mother, but that's a different story. Seriously, I can't get away with anything without being noticed. I am the type who prefers to be anonymous (that's anon-ah-mouse).
I work for my father in a business he adores and I can't stand. I am frustrated at work and I feel badly I'm not more cheerful there, cognizant of the time I am spending with him, and how wonderful it is to have a boss that indeed loves you. Mostly I bitch and moan and wish I were anywhere but stuck.
With that it mind, this image is a reminder of the good things about him, and the person he is that I sometimes overlook somewhere between the bitch and the moan.
That's my PHC for September. Looking forward to visiting with the others....the stories are a pleasure to read. The feelings behind an image are often just things we imagine. It's nice to hear what a photo has to say from the viewpoint of the creator rather than from my take as an observer.
