The Weekly Photo Challenge theme was Indulge. I thought this was an interesting word because indulging is a very sensory experience.
I chose two very different family pictures that represent simple but pleasurable indulgences.
Here is my father when he was stationed in Germany in the 1950’s. As you can see he is taking a break from his regular duties. He’s sitting on a desk where there is an empty inbox.
He’s wearing a coat, so the weather may not be freezing, but it is cold. Perhaps the flowers took his mind away from that, if only for a moment. I love to smell flowers so I can really relate to this picture. I close my eyes just like he did and take in the scent of something soft and lovely.
I also found a photo that gave me a good chuckle. How many times have we looked at a mountain of ice cream or some other decadent dessert and thought, “I wish I could just dive into that! I don’t want to wait – I’m going for it!”
C’mon…admit it…you know you’ve done that! I’m an admitted chocolate addict, so I know I have!
My niece went for it from the comfort of her high chair and someone was there to catch the moment she indulged! I can just taste it – how about you? YUM!!!
