Scene and Story from January 2017

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

On the first Sunday of each month, two blogging friends host a link-up party. Sarah of Paisley Rain Boots and Lee of Sea Blue Lens invite others to share a favorite photo from the past month and short story of the photograph.

The photo above is a favorite of mine from January. It’s not that great of a photo. The reason it means something to me is that it reminds me of something hubby did. I had been given a photo challenge for January to shot a still life photo in a corner. I had mentioned to hubby that come spring I would see what I could do with photographing in that corner window. My plan was to wait until after the stormy weather gave way to some sunshine and I had the time to wash those windows. While I was setting up my still life scene (in another corner of the house), hubby cleaned those two corner windows…and in the rain. Screens and all! He did this just in case I‘d rather not want to wait till spring. He is so thoughtful like this. So, I removed the box of tissue, TV remote, and phone from my nightstand. Then I clicked away. Not for the photo challenge, but because what he did meant a lot to me.

  2. What a loving gesture! I am so intrigued by what lies outside your window, that pop of orange fascinated me. Tell your husband he did a marvelous job cleaning the windows. And great composition for telling a story.

    1. Thanks Sarah, for hosting the link-up. That pop of orange...we lost part of our fence in a recent storm. The new wood should weather into a nice grayish color soon. That pop of orange still takes me by surprise too.

  4. Carol, this is priceless - what a wonderful story! (And a wonderful husband.) Your photo stirs a bit of nostalgia for me, too, as I used to have a pair of milk glass bedside lamps very similar to that one, some fifty or so years ago.

    1. Thanks Lee, I used to have a lot of milk glass back in the 70's. I wish I had kept more of it. Thank you also for co-hosting this link-up too.

  14. Loved reading about this. Those are the Hallmark moments or at least for me when unexpected mine makes coffee or takes the dog out (I usually do since I'm the one who chose to get on; but the hubby adores Razzy) so I can stay in bed a bit longer or those types things. Your hubby showed so much with actions so I can imagine the love felt there. :)
