A few months ago I asked on Facebook and in my newsletter for people to suggest one word to me, and I'd create a blog post about my interpretation of their word just for them. It makes sense that each blog post will be a combination of photographs I've taken and my thoughts on the subject.
I've decided to call this series of blog posts "One Word". And I'll do these as long as you keep giving me your one word.
One Word - "Cousins"
This was just lucky. One of my favorite (and easy) spots to photograph is a vacant lot nearby. (Sadly it won't be vacant after the winter, so I'll have to find another convenient "weedy" spot.) I had planted myself on my little footstool, not even seeing the bee in front of me. I heard him before I saw him.
Well there he was. Literally "busy as a bee" collecting pollen from the thistle. You can see his little saddle bags full of the stuff. And then one of his buddies stopped by. They were way too preoccupied to think I mattered. My cousin had just given me her One Word of cousins. This was perfect!
I did a little research to find out if two bees from the same hive could theoretically be cousins, and they can. So here you go, Alanna. Cousins. :)
Add Your Word
I'd love if you'd add your word in comments below! (Or email me or message me through Facebook.) I'll choose from my photo archives or create a new artistic photograph just for you, based on my interpretation of the word you suggest. My narrative might be long or short. :) But it will be just for you!
