I loved photographing this beautiful barn. I didn’t dare go inside – fear of rats, nails, and sudden collapse.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “A Moment in Time.”
I am a traveling doctor and I have a new job for a few months, in Fargo, North Dakota. Brr. Everyone is really nice here, and the facilities are awesome. In the center of the hospital is an atrium that goes all the way up to the top floor, which is where I work. The first time I leaned over to look, I got dizzy. My next thought: I gotta get a picture of that! Then I thought: I will probably drop my phone over the edge! It took me two days to work up the nerve to take the pic, clutching the phone with both shaking hands, visions of the phone falling six stories and smashing into a patient at the bottom. Good thing the phone had vision stabilization.
Nothing much warmer than a hothouse full of orchids. One of my husband’s memories from his dad: he inherited an orchid and that started our collection. This bloom arrived in time for my daughter’s ninth birthday.
I caught my daughter playing a statue while we were in Sydney Australia. I realized that a reverse photo where my daughter’s backlit shape cut into the colorful outdoor background would be a neat shot to try.
It seems I have been playing with glass a lot recently. My family did quite a bit of international travel this year, and several opportunities presented themselves for some cool glass pictures.
This one, which might be my favorite, was taken in Paris, at Georges Pompidou Modern Art Museum. I took a self-portrait of my reflection in an art installment with multicolored layers of plexiglas.
The next few were taken in the Modern Art Museet in Stockholm, Sweden. The first is of my husband. Notice my daughter’s reflection in the upper left.
This one is a reflected image of our family in the window, with the Port of Stockholm seen outside.
The last is one of my favs: a self-portrait I took in the Swedish Children’s Museet, in a room of mirrors.
