It’s Palm Sunday! What a wonderful day to be here hunting with Ashley Sisk, and that is no April Fool’s joke! It is the beginning of Passion Week, the most precious week of the year for Christians. One of my photos this week has to do with heading toward Easter so I hope you have a look ALL the way down through to the end. The prompts this week were:
1. clouds, 2. sun flare, 3. seven, 4. high angle, and 5. low angle.
On our pond walk, the grandchildren and I noted that the cattails were in their “fluffy” phase. I read from the nature book that you can use the fluff for insulation to stay warm if you are ever out in cold weather and need some “down”. My 6-year-old granddaughter, Kira, said, “They look like clouds, Mamie!” I snapped the picture for clouds.
It has not been sunny here lately so I took this picture from my bike ride with my son two weeks ago. Here you can see the sun on my son as he stands at the entrance to the Peace Garden that runs along the Susquehanna River as does the bike trail. Check us out with our bikes on the inset.
Each Sunday throughout Lent my family lights a candle to celebrate a “mini-Easter”. The seventh Sunday of Lent is Easter so (because of the prompt and because it made a statement) the candle we will light on Easter is a big number 7. Seven has the connotation of perfection and rest in Christianity. This is the seventh Sunday in the time of Lent. It is the time when we are made perfect through the perfect sacrifice God was willing to make to atone (pay the price) for our sins. Do you see Jesus carrying His cross? His suffering will soon be over and we will celebrate His victory over death — His death and ours.
I took this picture looking down on my clothes hanging on the clothesline from my kitchen window. I wasn’t quite sure this is what was meant by high angle. If I missed the meaning of the prompt chalk it up to being an amateur.
The same is true of this picture. I was not sure I understood what was meant by low angle, but I was lying on the ground under this tree shooting up for this one! A better picture would have been a shot of me under the tree…quite a sight, no doubt!
I hope you enjoyed this romp in my neck of the woods. I’m off to check out what others did this week,
