the Creativity Project :: February :: Love & Light

How perfect is this theme for February?
A time when life's outlook can be a little glum.
I am thankful that there is love & light in the world even when everything seems glum.

I love your set of photos! That calf has such lovely eyes and long, curly eyelashes.

Wow, K wears only shorts in the snow? Here I am at 9oC (about 48oF), wearing a scarf and socks and a thick fleece jacket and it feels absolutely COLD!

Heather said...

That calf picture is AMAZING. Love it...and the one of K at the counter in the old time shop.

and now i smile...for i knew your post would 1. be an abstract view of the theme 2. full of any image that filled us the "feeling" of said theme 3. i was bounsd to see babies and/or animals and i got to see BOTH!

f.y.i: kaish gets all types of "G" props for brazing the snowy winds whilst donning shorts, no less, lol.

and i LOVE that silhouette of the person crossing the street and the awkward smile of the first portrait most of all!

Love these photos!! You make the snow look beautiful even though I'm so over it

Tamar SB said...

These are SO great - you capture life SO well and SO naturally.

ginabad said...

I love these, making the best of the bad weather! But, shorts in the snow?? :)

Daniel Beeler said...

Love it! But I have to agree with the above. The shorts made me brrrrr!

photowannabe said...

I just love the stories your photos tell.
Children, Life on the street, and the love of life.
Thanks for sharing Becky.

Beautiful, as always. But Kaish! I'm sitting here freezing and just seeing those bare legs in the snow gave me a shiver!

I am always captivated by your images, but these really tugged at my heart. I especially loved seeing your crazy kid in shorts in the snow, my kiddo does the same thing. Thank you so much for sharing.

Ashley @showmeashley.com said...

These pictures are GORGEOUS and make me miss home. Growing up on a farm, I would never think I would miss those cows. But I do now!

I was going to tell you how much I love the picture of your son in the shorts when I saw the picture of the calf. I love just about all of them. I haven't been taking pictures recently. I think it's time to pick up the camera again.

Beth@Goodness Gracious Living said...

Hello again! We were in the same tribe and now we are on the same comment love day :-) I love the photos of the cows but I have to say that it makes me happy to know that I'm not the only one with a crazy teen who doesn't wear appropriate clothing on snow days :-) How are they not cold?? Hope you are having a warm day :-)

Cathi said...

Absolutely stunning photography. I love your creativity and captures!!

Skeller said...

I adore seeing Philly & rural-ish PA thru your lens. Truly. And I have favorites amongst these: Kaish in shorts in the snow (and no! no bad mom points to you!!) and the lady and her shadow in the middle of the street.

Preparing for Peanut said...

Beautiful pics. They make the snow seem friendlier than it is!

Bev @ Blogging Inspiration said...

It's so nice to see some pictures of blue sky in the winter time. It's been so cloudy by us this winter!

Barb@embracingthesecondhalf said...

What beautiful pictures! I know I've been glum with all the snow we keep having (another 12" on the way) so this really brightened my day. NO matter what time of year, there is always beauty to be found.

Beautiful photos you've taken & I also love the theme love & light. I love the first picture of the man & his great smile & also the calf & one when someone is crossing the middle of the road with light shining through. Coping with the Big C - The Sits Comment Love Challenge

Love all of these, but especially the 3rd from the bottom...the person walking across the road. Fabulous lighting and mood. :)

I love those photos and the idea of the project. The cow noses are my favorite. We are trying to look for joy, light, and creative outlets every day.
