Week 9: White

I’ve decided I like the color challenges best.  This is the second one so far and I have more fun thinking up ideas and trying them out.  More so than say “window”.  Needless to say, I had the perfect photo opportunity for this week’s subject.  There are only a few things in this world you expect to be white: snow, clouds, the President’s house, anything albino, wedding dresses…

Here is my white:

Week 9: White

Like I said, I went to a wedding this weekend.  And my goal was to get a sweet picture of the wedding cake.  My cake pictures were OK (BTW, the cake was out of this world delicious!) but this caught my eye.  It’s cropped of course, I would never zoom in on somebody’s butt like this (OK, yes I would), but I feel that it tells a story.  A husband embracing his new wife, supporting her, letting her know he’ll always be there for her and love her.  This was their “first dance”.

That’s what I love about weddings.  Love is the air and I breathe it in deep.  Everyone magically forgets about the dirty socks on the floor, the pile of dishes in the sink, the fact that your husband hasn’t taken out the trash in three weeks or bothered to mow the lawn in that same time.  Ah, weddings.  They’re pure romance [and cake].

Next week’s challenge is “time.”  Literally?  Figuratively?  I have no idea what I’m doing – time to start putting the pen to paper and the eye to viewfinder.  Don’t forget to check out the flickr pool’s photos or click on the challenger roll to see everyone else’s photos.  Enjoy [and join the challenge]!!
