ROUND ROBIN PHOTO CHALLENGE MOODS

TWO OF MY FAVORITE SUBJECTS

Moods.  We all have them.  They come in a variety of flavors ranging from happiness to pensiveness. Reflective to giddy. Sad to charming. Ornery to downright obnoxious.

My husband has the (un)fortunate circumstance to be the subject of a myriad of my photographs.  It could be because he is always there! Over the years he has accepted his fate.

This photo was taken the day of our big moving sale. His daughter, my stepdaughter is very happy because she is selling off a multitude of her out grown doll collection and is making a fortune! I love her smile in this photo.

And Joe is ...... seemingly thinking about the end of a way of life and the beginning of a new one. 

Those are the moods that speak to me from this picture.

Amy...Substance; or lack of

Mary, if you photographed all of my moods - you'd quickly have enough of them to fill a gallery! I enjoyed the photo & the commentary.      Jon

Nice to see the distinct responses of two generations to a  life-changing event.

Very nice photo of father and daughter.  Have another assignment due on Saturday that I am going to enter in my journal on childhood memories.  And a photo of something that brings comfort.    ~mark~

Wow!  The looks on their faces says soooo much!  Your hubby reminds me of BJ Honeycutt from "MASH."

Wonderful pic! Yes, you surely caught the contrasts in the moods of your subjects.  Joe seems to be thinking whether he really wants to sell his golf clubs or keep them...
