You Capture: Technology

This week's theme for You Capture is Technology...otherwise known as the week Robert (age 12) had this imaginary conversation with himself:

"So, what did Mom do today?"
"Took pictures of the microwave."
"Uhhhhh...really? Then what did she do?"
"Took pictures of the remote controls."

So, thank you, Beth. You have stretched my imagination once again with the weekly theme and also totally baffled my family. ;) In fact, my husband just walked by and, seeing the photos I was working on, asked, “Tell me again why you took a picture of our remotes? [As though I told him in the first place.] Was it because they were all in the same place for once?”

Maybe that was it…

As I was thinking about the theme of “Technology,” I thought briefly about taking a photo of our many, many cables for our many, many electrical devices (cell phones, camera, MP3 players…) but I am sick of looking at those as it is.

So I moved on. I thought of the microwave…as I was standing in front of it and, quite serious at the time, thinking, “HURRY UP!” (Now, really, how pathetic is that?)


And you already know there will be the remote controls.


More bars in more places?


And just yesterday, Grace (age 3) decided to watch her favorite movie while following along in her favorite book.


But one thing that popped into my mind was the thought of the interruption of technology. Much like the many cables and cords are an aggravation, what about all the wires in our outside world that disrupt our view of this world that God made?


If you’ve been around here before, you most likely have seen my love of “pretty sky pictures” as one of my friends calls them. Like these…










(The last three photos were taken on the same night within 6 minutes.)

Love the sunset. Isn't it amazing how quickly the sky changes colors! And most people miss it every single night!

I must say that my favorite part about this post is your little girl's curls. Darling.
