hush {167/365}

The prompt for Day 11 at Creativity Boot Camp is “hush”.

Babies.  That’s what that word brings to mind.  Specifically, my precious little one, so many years ago now but how can it seem like only yesterday?  I swear I can inhale and still smell that unforgettable baby smell.  So many afternoons of laying on the couch with her on my chest, head tucked beside my cheek and me just breathing her in.  That scent just reaches in and wraps right around your heart, I swear.


Where does the time go?

In light of the distinct lack of babies around these parts, I looked elsewhere for inspiration. During a break in the rain today, I went out for a drive, knowing exactly where I was going, and found my shot …



One of my favourite roads to explore.  It’s gorgeous and incredibly quiet.  So quiet that the crunch of  gravel under your feet sounds like gunshots in the stillness.

The poem is, for the most part, a stream setting … but that’s okay.  There’s a stream running right along the left hand side here.  Honest.

    Woman, your photography has just exploded lately. I’m really, really impressed. This and the pear (ugh, and the ice cream) are soooo exceptional. Boot camp has done you good.

      Well I just love you now, more than I did.
      Awesome comment!!! Made my day :)
      This whole 365 project is doing me good … I was just looking through all of my shots the other day and seeing how far I’ve come in six months. Makes me anxious to see where I’ll be in another six!

    Wonderful! Love the pairing with the Lewis Carroll quote on solitude. What a beautiful, lush lane to wander. Thanks for sharing this little piece of heaven.

    Ditto everything LeslieW said a few post above as I was thinking exactly her thoughts when I looked at this picture. You have really tapped into your creative mind and managed to capture your talent in photos. I’m pretty sure your going to get an A+ in the class!! ;-)
