This weeks Black & White Sunday photo challenge at Paula’s place Lost In Translation is: Still Life. I took a few shots yesterday that I thought may fit this theme so I decided to give it a try. When I “thought” this I had not yet downloaded the pictures I took yet. I had used an old film camera lens, a Minolta MD 28mm F2.8 lens, adapted to my Sony A37 and natural light for the captures. When I downloaded them I noticed something: The images that I captured did not look the same as the one I saw through the viewfinder. *Sigh* I guess age, not technology , has caught up with me and my ever changing vision. That is the “front” story now for the back story.
There is a Angel I have displayed on my bookshelf that states “Friends are like Angles you do not have to see them to know they are there.” My Mom had a love for Angel figurines. After she died I gave all her’s away as way of paying tribute to the way she gave of herself. Last year I bought this one to honor her and the friendship we developed after she raised me to be a man. Like life itself, not all things are in focus but we must march on till they are.
