Here are five things I found last week with my One Word this year: HUMAN.

1. MY AND JEFF’S FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND (and please explain to me why the photo makes the footprints look more like a cast instead of an imprint!)

    love the tee shirt. Now that is a great way to celebrate our words for the year – make a tee shirt. I may have to do that.

    Those footprints remind me of 3D photo effects. And love the t-shirt. A photo challenge is a great way to get us “looking” and reconnecting with our word this summer!

      Yes, it always helps me “see” more when I’m looking for things to photograph. You know all about that since you’re an excellent photographer, Lynn!

      Hmm…I agree that “mindful” may be a bitter harder to photograph. But something will come to “mind” I’m sure. lol. And yes, our little guy definitely steals the show. 🙂

    As usual, Miss Lisa, I love all you share, and I love that tee-shirt! Can’t believe you round it!! And your baby is sooo cute, a very cute little human, indeed! I had to have a C-section in the end (not fun), so whichever way we open up it’s not a picnic, but oh the rewards. Love my near 31-y-o human, our darling daughter Sheridan. She serves little humans teaching them art. I would NOT survive! 😉 Not finding FINISH really in photos (except maybe finish lines in races), but I’m reading about it (and need to be DOING it)! oh my! 🙂

    Love you! Happy Memorial Day weekend.

      Sheridan definitely sounds like an amazing human. Even though no person is ever “finished” as long as they’re still here, I’d say you could look at Sheridan as a beautiful finished product of your childraising years. 🙂

    Love your photos Lisa! Imagine the footprints look so much more awesome than a boring photo would have displayed!! I especially loved the Tolstoy quote.

    What a great challenge this month-I needed to get outside my head and experience more Hope. I loved it so much I’m adding a Hope photo scrapbook to my One Word fun this year, I can’t stop photographing Hope!

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      True, the crazy way the footprints turned out makes it even more special to look at. I’m like you…I need to get out of my head way more often, so looking for things I could see and touch was a great way to do that. How exciting that you’re adding a Hope photo scrapbook to your fun!

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      The Tolstoy quote really resonated with me too. (Although to be fair, pet can appear to be empathetic to our pain at times too! lol)

      I googled why the footprints looked like casts. And found it! It’s something to do with how our brains perceive the shadows, not the photo itself. So it’s all on us! ha.

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      Google told me that the footprints photo is purely an optical illusion. It reminds me of those photos where you can see either an old lady’s face or a young girl. ha.

    What a great idea. I word this year is Joy, so it really shouldn’t be too hard to look around and find something that reminds me of that! Thanks for the reminder!

    Linking up a great review/author interview of a favorite new WWII novel, if interested!
