The theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge is Distorted. Here’s a picture I’ve always wanted to use but wasn’t quite sure how. Now, I finally have the opportunity!
I’ve posted a few times about my dad and his time spent in Germany during the Korean conflict. Here is a show of extremes. Is my dad so short that he appears like a little boy? Is his buddy a giant?
Well, it’s neither, really. My dad is 5’4’’ tall, so yes, he is small in stature. The door jamb tells gives the height dimensions of the taller man. Also, compare the shoes of each man!
A show of extremes, indeed! I wonder if this man is someone my dad walked alongside regularly, or, if they just ran into each other, and someone happened to have a camera. Hopefully I’ll remember to ask him about it!
For the next picture, I was not jumping onto the tracks at the Houston Airport!
If you read my previous post, Patience and Cup of Tea, you know that I had some adventures in travel yesterday. http://wp.me/p1OXNv-7I
It just so happens that during my down time I was reading a lot of your blogs. This is how I discovered this week’s theme! I saw my reflection, grabbed my cell phone and took this shot before the tram arrived to take me to the next terminal. I decided not to crop the photo so you could see the view of the tracks.
A distorted view of my distorted day!
