Shutter Story (#15) - Pebbles in the Autumn Pond

By
Education & Training with Tech Training for You!

Snapshots of time are a lovely thing. This photo from 2010 I stumbled across again yesterday. I needed the smile that it brought me, it has been kind of a tough week. Don't you love the simple things in life sometimes as the greatest of all! Here I am with my little boy enjoying a beautiful fall day together.

I am calling this series Shutter Stories (that link will show you my previous posts). I have been pulling out of my photo archive to share both old and new shots. I give a very short narrative and then I'll let the photo tell the remaining 1000 words of the story. hope you enjoy! craig

I know that when my professional life throws me frustrations and curves, I seek solace in my family. This photo is a reminder of the simple joy that love brings us - the ripple on the water and the colors are lovely. Sending you positive thoughts. D

So true, Craig, the simple things can bring such joy!  It's a beautiful photo and I hope next week is much better.  I have to get started on your class.... hopefully this week.  Thanks for all you do here in the Rain!

Indeed, the simple times... What's weird is time is going to fly by and all of a sudden you look around and all your kids are grown and off on their own adventure. I love my treasures, those wonderful simple moments frozen in time... great memories.

Craig, your photo speaks louder than words.  Don't lose track of this picture, I believe that when your son is older this will represent a precious time to him.  Maybe a great gift when he turns 21?

Coming across an old picture that you have such positive associations with is a great thing.

Craig, what a wonderful photo. I love the 'mood' of it and can imagine you having a nice conversation there with your little boy as you watch for fish.
