Day 218 – August 6, 2018
This has to be the most “complete” photo I have used to cover all topics. By that I mean, I am confidant that all the prompts are represented by the picture alone, and I don’t have to write anything to include the individual prompts. That doesn’t mean I am not going to write anything at all, you don’t get off that easy, I just don’t need to. I do regret not having my main camera with me, but the opportunity presented itself and I had no time. As mom and daughter walked past, drawing attention with their respondent wardrobe, I overheard a little of the conversation they were having. The flood gates of memories, including conversations like theirs, between my daughter (at that age) and I, opened up and gushed out. I was knocked ambivalent by the emotional landslide. Especially when those memories, combined with the inevitable image of my girl leaving home, began to spin out of control, almost. Much like the colorful pseudo spiral pattern on the tie-dyed shirt, the repressed images and feelings flew out from the subconscious to that moment, catching me off-guard. After my brief “moment”, I preserved the image of the two that left my heart swollen and forlorn. Have a great week everyone!
