Shutter Story (#15) - Pebbles in the Autumn Pond

Education & Training with Tech Training for You!

Snapshots of time are a lovely thing. This photo from 2010 I stumbled across again yesterday. I needed the smile that it brought me, it has been kind of a tough week. Don't you love the simple things in life sometimes as the greatest of all! Here I am with my little boy enjoying a beautiful fall day together.

I am calling this series Shutter Stories (that link will show you my previous posts). I have been pulling out of my photo archive to share both old and new shots. I give a very short narrative and then I'll let the photo tell the remaining 1000 words of the story. hope you enjoy! craig

Craig, your like me. When I need a lift I always turn to my children's photo. Nothing can bring a smile to my face faster than my children. Thanks for sharing.

I know that when my professional life throws me frustrations and curves, I seek solace in my family. This photo is a reminder of the simple joy that love brings us - the ripple on the water and the colors are lovely. Sending you positive thoughts. D

Indeed, the simple times... What's weird is time is going to fly by and all of a sudden you look around and all your kids are grown and off on their own adventure. I love my treasures, those wonderful simple moments frozen in time... great memories.

Craig, your photo speaks louder than words.  Don't lose track of this picture, I believe that when your son is older this will represent a precious time to him.  Maybe a great gift when he turns 21?

Craig, what a wonderful photo. I love the 'mood' of it and can imagine you having a nice conversation there with your little boy as you watch for fish.
