This week's theme for Shutter Love Tuesday is:
First Day of School
I'm actually putting a shot that was from when my BABY (aka Silly Boy)
went to HIS first day of school because I wanted to talk/blog about it a bit.
This was in 2004 when my little boy was SO EXCITED to be like the BIG KIDS and go to SCHOOL!! He was so sad the year before that he couldn't go! He did NOT want to have anyone hold his hand or be walked in... To ME, this was my young flying the coop! Going OFF into the lone and dreary WORLD!!
Mind you, this photo WAS taken with a pretty lousy camera, but the color WAS pretty good... However, in wanting to sharpen it up a bit... I had to do a little EXTRA editing to portray the way I FELT watching my little MAN ventured into the great BEYOND!! So if the school looks dark and cold and the color a bit subdued... NOW you know why. I was recreating MY mood in the edit.
Had I edited to HIS mood, the colors would be VIBRANT nad the school would be ALL the colors of the rainbow! LOL! But this is MY BLOG... And I'll portray my mood through IMAGERY if I WANT to! HAH!! ;p
Now my BABY is in the sixth grade and Stitch Kid is up to the BIG Jr High!! *sigh* College boy has begun his sophomore year!! The others are all married and have homes and families of their own... The years just seem to FLY... Don't they? So even though mine are getting OLD, and ALL that JAZZ... I DO remember and my heart goes out to all you moms sending your little ones off...
