Or is it ketchup? Anyway, that's what Rebecca chose to photograph for her interpretation of the word. And this project is all about artistic and individual creativity, so who am I to question her?
When I took the girls to Johnny Rockets for lunch, the waitress made these cute funny faces out of ketchup before she set down our plate of fries. The girls were so thrilled, and Rebecca says it reminds her of a happy family. Of course we had to take them home, and they ate their fries plain so as not to mess up the smiles. So, there you go. A simple squeeze bottle and some red sauce and you got instant happiness.
Before everyone loses interest, I figured I'd better post a word, a concept. So here goes.
Have fun with it, and remember it doesn't need to (and probably shouldn't) be a literal definition of the word. I was actually envisioning it to be more abstract. Like, what does "family" mean to you? Use it as inspiration, a jumping off point. I've created a flickr group for you to join if you're going to play along and post up to 5 photos per word per child there.
I'll try my darnedest to post a new word at least every 10 days. That's the plan, anyways... and please remember I'm still really just feeling my way around all this, the concept, the new blog, the Flickr! group administration. I'm not very good at it yet, but I'm trying. Amy is my hero, that Year of Color and Color + Color Group was so awesome and well done, I have something to aspire to! Suggestions, comments and tips are welcome. Like, how in the heck do I change or add to the group description on the Flickr! site? Anyone? Anyone?
So here's the idea I've been kicking around for almost a year, now. Inspired by Amy'sYear of Color, I want to start a little project for my daughter and any other kids who may want to play along. She loves her little digital camera, and I'd like to encourage her to develop and focus (literally and figuratively) her skills. So I'll come up with a theme once every week (what? Did I just say that? Ha. Don't hold me to it, maybe it'll be more like a couple of times a month) or so, and see what she comes up with.
