MY FIRST DAY’S RUMINATIONS ON THE WEEKLY PHOTO THEME OF ARRANGED.
“ The placeholder for ARRANGED this week is the 1970 shot of Richard the well travelled American arriving in Australia in the western suburbs of Sydney to a dinner arrangement by my Mum. Fresh from the rebellious California landscape to US. I shall choose a shot of my own but I love this shot. The looks on our faces. The careful arrangement of the meal and flowers and dinner table. My mother and my brother were so delighted to have overseas visitors. “
Arranged. Sometimes you chance across things which were arranged on purpose, or on a whim – find something in your environment which was arranged by a human hand for others to enjoy!
Share a picture that means ARRANGED to you!
I actually have read the blurb with the new topic this week instead of a fleeting look at the image and the one word topic.
It means that I need something
- that I have chanced across
- that has been arranged on purpose
- or on a whim
- something in my environment
- something arranged by a human hand for others to enjoy.
One of Izzy’s sayings is ADRRESS THE QUESTION. So here I am : ADDRESSING THE TOPIC.
I begin the week’s Photo Challenge with an image I took last night. I went to a 70th birthday party. I was on the outer fringe of invited guests and that gave me plenty of freedom to move about and watch People.
- I chanced across an Aunt and a Cousin arranging 4 siblings into a rare family portrait. The 4 siblings live in 4 different parts of Australia and a photo en masse is a rare thing. They were still missing one sister when I chanced upon them.
- The Aunt and Cousin were arranging them on purpose.
- It was not quite a whim – but the location over near the golf course and river was a sudden notion.
- The arrangement of these people is in my environment and I am often part of the rippling effect of their combinations.
- The Aunt and the Cousin had their human hands in there arranging the unruly 4 Siblings so that photographs would exist for the Family to enjoy.
Not a specially good quality pic because I was way over the other side of the road and distracted by 50 other guests with my little Fujifilm camera – but I like it.
