LAUGH, HEARTS, TREES AND DOORS
Jenn at Artists Play Room has asked us for an interpretation of 'Laugh' as her theme this week. I decided to go for the personal approach, and this is a photograph my daughter took of me last year. I hate having my photograph taken, and I was amazed that she could capture this shot of me laughing. Hope this suits the theme Jenn.
With the topic of 'Hearts' at Take a Word the difficulty was to think of something a little different, and for this challenge I kept to the personal approach. When I thought of 'Hearts' my mind said 'Where does my heart lie?' - and there is only one answer to that. So this image contains photos of our wedding day and one taken by my daughter of ourselves as we were last year. I chose this photo because it's one I really do like and gives the feeling of our closeness.
You may notice that in the wedding day photo Dev is wearing a medal - my mother added a medal ribbon to a chocolate medal and gave it to him saying 'You deserve a medal for marrying our Jez'! Even after all this time he still has the medal.
At So Artful Challenges the theme is 'Trees'. This is a photograph I took with a pinhole camera some years ago, cropped to a circle on Photoshop and with a frame added. I like the unusual angle and the mysterious effect the pinhole camera achieved.
Over at Art Journal Journey the challenge is 'Doors'. Whenever we are out and about I love taking photographs of doors and windows, and because the doors are invariably closed I can't help wondering what lies behind them.

What an absolutely fantastic portrait! Such a great smile. And how sweet of your husband to save that medal after all of these years. Super post. :)ReplyDelete
Wow Jez, you've been busy! It's so nice to see the person behind the blog. You look really happy in that picture of the two of you, and I love the story about the medal :-) That tree-picture is amazing ....ReplyDelete
What a wonderful photo. Your smile is delightful.ReplyDelete
It's so very nice to see these photographs of you.ReplyDelete
Your tree photograph is quite fascinating, something unusual for Soartful.
So many challenges you've taken part in! That is a beautiful photo of you. I love the angle is been taken at, it reminds me of the photo poses from the 50s. My parents were also 56 years married this year. I think it's wonderful to have spent so much of your life together and still be in love all these years later! Your wedding photo is lovely as is the more recent one which clearly shows how happy you are. Your tree photo is gorgeous-what a fantastic angle!ReplyDelete
Lovely post Jez, I love the pictures of you and Dev, really beautiful. I remember the post where you talked about your wedding album and I think you spoke of the chocolate medal then, how lovely that he has kept it! Your photo of the tree is wonderful, so atmoshperic and works so well in its circular frame, I think I may have to go and experiment with circular frames myself! Doors make great subjects dont' they?....I love the blue door in your picture and the white door on the left is made really interesting by the pattern on the front! xReplyDelete
Lovely post and your pinhole camera shot is wonderful.ReplyDelete
Great doors too!
