Celebrating Women for the Real World



Stuff Portrait Friday!

A P – E R – T U R E
1. An opening, such as a hole, gap, or slit.

2. a) A usually adjustable opening in an optical instrument, such as a camera or telescope, that limits the amount of light passing through a lens or onto a mirror.
b) The diameter of such an opening, often expressed as an f-number.
c) The diameter of the objective of a telescope.

The lovely Kristine over at Random & Odd is getting creative again. Since she knows that we are weirdos, she is probably hesitant as to what we will post.

OUR ASSIGNMENT (should we choose to accept):

1. A wide open space.
2. Brightness
3. In the dark

A WIDE OPEN SPACE

My guys are gone this week and hubby has my camera, but I do have backups. This is a picture of Big G. G2 took this picture and it is one of my favorites. They were camping up in the mountains in Colorado and what better place for ‘a wide open space’.

BRIGHTNESS

The brightness is the snow. They found snow while hiking and had to play in it. G2 is the one that just threw the snowball (the Texas kid in the Michigan cap…lol). This was the first time that he had ever seen the white stuff so he was thrilled. The last time it snowed in Houston, we were in East Texas (G2 was pissed we missed it).

IN THE DARK

Now what is a camping trip without the campfire! I am such a pyro that I just love a campfire and how the flames dance ‘in the dark’.

Did you play? Did ya?

    Great camping shots! I know what you mean about the snow thing. I made a special trip to Montana with my son when he was in kindergarten – during the Mardi Gras week off from school – to visit my sister so he could see snow and mountains. He has a blast in the stuff.

    Love your mountain photos. The mountains are special. I love them. J and I went to Jasper, Alberta two years ago and found snow on one of the mountains. So odd when it’s July, you know?

    I can’t help it… I’ve got to say it…

    every time I look at the snow photo my stomach lurches into my throat. I keep thinking he’s going to FALL!

    (and yet every time I look, he is still there and obviously hasn’t).
