Perspective

It’s been a while since I’ve participated in the Weekly Photo Challenge.

It’s definitely time!

This week’s theme, Perspective, challenges us to share a photo where a portion of the image presents one perspective, and a wider angle gives a different perspective.

I browsed the family gallery and came across an image which was taken last year during mother’s birthday celebration.

It appears several family members are looking out a window.

Even though the image is a bit fuzzy I can see images of my brothers, sisters and sisters-in-law.

Everyone seems to be very focused on something,

but

what could possibly be capturing their attention?

Well, when you zoom out

it’s easy to see they weren’t looking out a window at all!

Their reflections show they were trying to get everyone to look in the same direction for a different photo altogether!

My parents are posing with all their great-grandchildren, and, with one grandchild who’s hidden away while propping up a little one!

Everyone else is either taking pictures, or, coaxing their youngsters to “sit up tall, look straight ahead and smile!”

If you were to ask someone to count the family members in the photo, it’s likely they’d count my parents and all the little ones.  They may even count my (mostly hidden) nephew.

But would they count all the reflections?

The intent was to capture the youngest generation with the “the most mature” generation in our family.

If you include the reflections in the window and my nephew, this is really a picture with four generations!

My family is close-knit and vibrant…and it shows with this perspective!

About

I've always enjoyed writing and finally decided it was time to blog! As part of my profession I write every day, but I'm now trying to take the time to write creatively. My family and friends have been very encouraging as there is little that is written down in the way of a family chronicle. This is a favorite topic of mine! In addition to family history, I write about life, family, friends and faith. My husband is a full-time parent to our special needs daughter. I’ve explored this topic, too. I also enjoy music, crocheting, reading and relaxing with my family. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer!

    Very creative and awesome perspective. I wouldn’t have really paid attention to those in the background reflection if it hadn’t been focused on.

      HI Aian! It’s an amazing thing to see especially when they’re altogether! I’m very grateful my parents are healthy and strong enough able to enjoy them. I appreciate the delight in their faces! Thanks for stopping by my site!:)

  6. Getting that many youngsters to sit for a photo is an amazing thing in itself! But your family? Now that’s amazing! Cool!

    • Cathy G says:

      Hi Gemma! LOL – Yeah…I wonder how long it took,..and how many times they tried getting the shot! I also have a feeling that there were a few people snapping photos! They probably compared them all to find the final take!😀
      Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
