Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands

It’s hard to think of what our lives would be like without our hands, the subject of this Weekly Photo Challenge. We use them in so many different ways – to tie our shoe laces, comb our hair, feed ourselves and others, dress, write, and gesture.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue

Another week, another photo challenge. This time, it’s the color blue.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unfocused

When I saw the topic for this week’s challenge, I swore out loud. Usually, I delete photos that are unfocused or blurry – why keep them, I think to myself. And with a digital camera, it’s easy and it’s immediate. No waiting until the photo’s printed. There’s no reminder, no evidence of my miscalculation. I searched and found this:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Together

When I saw this little boy walking with a bucket almost twice his size to the nearby river, I was puzzled. Why was he going to the river, I wondered. Isn’t he too small to be going into the water by himself? These questions popped into my head as I watched. Other people were around – adults and children – some of them in the river bathing and playing around, but none of them his size. No one seemed to notice.

Just as I walked past, he waded into the shallow part and plunged the bucket into the water. I kept walking but I kept looking back to see what he was going to do.

As he struggled with the now full bucket, water splashed from the sides and ran down his foot. Finally, he reached the horse, his father’s, I was told. He gently set it down and the horse dunked its head into the bucket. He waited patiently for the horse to finish. When he felt it’d had enough, he picked up the bucket and splashed the rest of the water on the animal then walked back in the same direction from which he had appeared. I smiled.

This is my entry to WordPress’s Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s theme is together.
