I’ve been nominated by Carol at Wanderings of an Elusive Mind to play along on the Five Photos, Five Stories challenge. Each day for five days I need to post a photo and a story, then nominate someone else to join in. So here goes.
Most of you know that Katie has a favorite park. Turns out that lots of people enjoy Katie’s park for all sorts of reasons, not the least is that there are parts of it that are very photogenic. One evening as Katie and I were packing up to go home after a walk we noticed this:
I’m sure this young man is one of next year’s seniors. And that he plays in the school orchestra which must be a large part of his high school experience.
Watching them brought back memories. More than forty years ago I was having my senior photo taken outside. It was a new thing, back then, to take senior photos outside a studio.
I wonder now what caused my folks to choose this particular photographer, someone who was doing something so different. I don’t remember being part of the decision, but I remember the afternoon spent in a field getting my picture taken. I’m sure the young man Katie and I watched last week will remember his photo shoot too.
I wish him a wonderful, happy, and musical future.
So the hard part is thinking about who to ask to participate. The rules are simple, post five pictures with stories, fiction or not, perhaps even poetry. Nominate someone each day to continue the challenge. Today I nominate Sara for purely selfish reasons; I want to see some more photos of her boys. I know she’s super busy with school this time of year, so I’ll understand if she can’t play, or can only post a couple of photos. But I hope to see Oreo and Chewy soon!
