Weekend Snapshot: Number 54


My weekend snapshot post includes a shot I took this week as well as a project I did on Friday so hopefully this isn't too much of a stretch to call it my WS. I went ahead and made my new Peace Globe this Friday and it includes some recent as well as some old shots. One of the shots on my new peace globe was taken Thursday and is shown below with a group of high school students on the lawn of their school and there are also pigeons at the bottom of the shot.
Mimi Writes announced the upcoming Blogblast for Peace recently. Below is the peace globe I will be flying on November 6, 2008. Once you make your globe you can email it to Mimi and it will be numbered and included in the gallery. I think this inspired event which Mimi started several years ago shows a positive side of bloggers coming together. Thank you Mimi!I know some of the WS participants have participated in Blog Blast for Peace and I thought some of you who may not know about it yet may be interested in doing it in November. If you click inside my globe above you can see the individual shots I picked to represent some of the interconnected life that this planet sustains. Top left is the shot I started this post with. Under the school shot is a hummer I recently photographed. Moving right is butterfly top, me and my daughter under that, and my daughter and her Dad under that. The shots with our daughter are 22 to 23 years old.
Still moving right on the globe, beside the butterfly is a farmer's market shot, under that are ducks at my neighborhood lake, and under that are lilly pads at a mountain pond. Moving right is a dog I shot recently, that was hanging out its car window. The full shot of the dog is above. Under the dog on the peace globe is a neighborhood child on a bike last fall, and under that is a shot of my sisters at the beach. Then far right is a caterpillar in my front yard's bird bath. I posted the sister shot on my photoblog in June in this post. I liked it as an enlargement which is why it was posted on my other blog that has full size photos.
I almost used the 22 year old shot of me and my daughter in the mountains shown above, but I kind of like the one of us looking at each other for the peace globe shot. I hope you will consider joining Mimi Writes Blog Blast for Peace.

enjoyed the snapshot at the bottom.

it reminded me of when my oldest girl was her age; she picked up a worm out of the leaves and stretched it out. caught her just in time before she put it in her mouth. aw; nature and babies!
