52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

18. I Had A Dream

6 Comments

We have all been woken in the night by dreams of loosing someone close to us. For me, usually with tears streaming down my face. I’m always so relieved to realize it was only a dream.

I took this photo Memorial Day Weekend, while visiting a family member’s grave, at the National Cemetery in Sarasota. I’m sure everyone who saw them could relate to how they were feeling as they sat in silence. As aware of them as we were, they were totally unaware of anyone around them. I’ve titled this photo, “Colorless World.” While feeling the loss of their loved one their lives must have felt very colorless. The world around them was full of color, they just couldn’t see it through their grief.

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!
