It’s amazing the memories or feelings some pictures evoke. I took this picture over Christmas Break after the Writer & I had finished 7 miles out on the River.
We were wandering around the parking lot of the Blue Star Brewery trying to find good location shots for her for her blog.
I remember waiting for the light to turn red at the corner so I could jump out into the street and snap a shot without getting hit by an inattentive motorist. This was actually taken from the safety of the sidewalk. My photo from the street didn’t turn out at all. It was a good morning.
We hadn’t spent anytime together in the last couple of years due to circumstances … “life” if you will … and so this morning was time for us to just BE in the moment and enjoy each other’s company.
Hub had a very stressful day yesterday and in the moments leading up to the cause of all his stress, I helped him calm down by flipping through an album of our favorite pictures. Pictures of places we’ve been during the last year; pictures of our favorite people. I had forgotten there were pictures of him & his dad in that album and I wasn’t sure how he would react when he saw them. I watched his face as he gazed on the photo of him & his dad, how his countenance softened. He told me later that he really misses his dad. I held him tight & told him I knew.
There’s power in capturing moments in time, preserving memories. All I can say is …
