Our Word View - Opportunity
This week's word is opportunity. It was a bit tricky and I had several images and possibilities in mind but my final choice is the following photo for two reasons. First this photo was staged and taken with a series of many other photos for a photoshop texture class I took last year with Kim Klassen. It was an opportunity to begin learning a new art form. Truly this class opened a whole new dynamic world for me in terms of photography. What a wonderful opportunity. Second this photo gives me the opportunity to reflect on all the beauty my Mum shared with me as a young girl, beauty that I relish and enjoy sharing now with my own daughter. You see these pieces were part of a small tea set given to my Mum by her brother who was a navy chaplain and Jesuit priest stationed in Okinawa for a time. I look at this image and the warmth of fond memories washes over me and brings a smile to my face.
