Weekly Photo Challenge: Create

This quote by Billy Crystal says it all:

My granddaughter’s birth has made me want to create things she will love.

I hope that through my teaching, I can help to create a world in which she is safe. I hope that through the pictures I take, I can create memories for her.

I find it interesting that when I’m at home, I might go two weeks without seeing my son, daughter-in-law, and my GRANDDAUGHTER. However, here I am on the other side of the world with an ocean dividing us, and I am missing them horribly after only one week; I ache a bit to realize that I won’t see them for a little more than a month. It must be horribly painful for those in our military to leave their families for a year or so.

I took this shot last Saturday night, just a few hours before leaving the country.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects

There are two subjects in this image. They tell separate stories, but combined, they create one story. The Waterfront, a popular site for weddings and events, is located at Tempe Town Lake, a popular site for people, dogs, skateboards, and fishing poles.

We witness the making of memories in this shot, as the photographer captures the love between man and his dog, and in the background, the wedding photographer creates memories of this special day for the bride and groom and their families.
