Bah! Another food shot…
I was given an amazing idea for this prompt, but I didn’t get the chance to get it done today. My Dad, my Hero, my Man of Steel suffered a massive stroke this past October. Actually, the day before my 33rd birthday. It has really devastated our small family, but he has been doing well. I visit every day and try to spend as much time with him as I can. Right now he is working on his rehab at a short term facility and then he will be able to come home. While he may not have much of his body left, I am so thankful he has most of his mind.
My Father is a veteran and while in the Army, he was a photojournalist. He worked for Army papers and magazines. He taught editing and journalism classes at the Pentagon. After he retired, he didn’t shoot much except for the rare family photo. When I was finally gifted my first dslr, he was delighted and it brought us so much closer. My dad kept his old Nikon F2 film camera and we shot a lot of my sons little league baseball games together. We had a lot of fun comparing shots from the dslr and the film camera. Now when I see him, he is always asking what I am working on. I told him about my project 365 and he has been giving me some pointers on my prompts. Of course for today, my Genius Dad tells me to take a fork, lay it in the street and take a pic of it. Then to post it and tell others to “keep going until they see a fork in the road, and when they do, to take it.” Honestly, the man is hilarious! I wish I could think like him sometimes… and I meant to do it but by the time I left the rehab facility, it was dark. Some things are just more important.
So instead, enjoy my protein laden breakfast (the blueberry kashi waffles were yummy, by-the-way). Perhaps I’ll call him and ask him what he thinks of the prompt for tomorrow 😉
