Nobody Plans To Be Alone

March 15th, 2011 - Day 74
In anticipation of Jessica's surgery next week, she made a gargantuan grocery list so that we will be fine on food for the next few weeks and have enough for countless meals I can cook. I shudder at the trip to go buy all of this.

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."
-Helen Keller

I opened the garage today and this tennis ball somehow rolled out of my garage and into the gutter.  Something about it screamed photo opportunity as it seemed so lonely and beaten in that gutter filled with water.

Yeah, this list picture turned out awesome. I like that it is in black and white and the focus is so centered on the pen and the few surrounding words and everything else is blurry. If you look closely, you can see the detail of the paper itself, with diagonal lines. Who knew a huge to-do list (there's even stuff on the back!) could make such a nice picture?!

I think this is a sad picture - the ball is meant to be played with, bounced, tossed, but instead, it's sitting in the watery gutter, alone, waiting for someone to find it, need it, play with it. The vibrant green against the drab concrete is stunning; the clarity of the water in the gutter on the front side if the ball is so crisp. This is a great picture, thanks to a happy little accident!

I agree with your number #1 fan. That ball in the tip of the pen looks so ready to write. As for the tennis ball, that's just another of your many great captures.

Is that a two-cart shopping list?

Poor tennis ball. I would feel sorry for it at first and then I'd cheer it up by bouncing it around with a tennis racket.

Both of those photos convey a lot of feeling to me. The pen, in focus, looks so competant, resting after a job well done. The bedraggled ball may have some life left in it, if only someone would notice.

I love the pen on paper photo. Very well done and the dark and light contrast is stunning.

everyone captured the sentiment exactly with what I would say. I won't go on but know that I love them!
