52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

8. WOW!

14 Comments

My blog photo choice this week isn’t so much about the photo quality, but the content.

Back 100 years ago, when I was pregnant with my 3 daughters, ultra sounds were only done if your Dr. thought there might be a problem with the baby. Now it is common for the Dr. to do them routinely. With all of that being said…

My oldest daughter who lives nearby in Florida is going to have a baby in December. Yesterday I went with her to the all important find out the sex of the baby appointment! It was so exciting for me to be there in the room and share that experience with Alissa and Billy! Technology has come so far! Not only was I able to count all the fingers and toes, view “his” little heart beating, I saw the little “guy” taking a swallow and sticking out “his” tongue!

I  have 3 other grandchildren but unfortunately they all live far away in Indiana. Because of the distance I was unable to attend doctors appointments with my daughters or the births of their babies. I’m excited that this time around I will be able to be closer and experience some of these special times with my daughter!

So this is my Wow! photo. What is normal these days to some is brand new to me! I think Wow! to myself every time I view this photo and think about what a little miracle I am looking at!

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!
