Familial reflection


Watching her boys
Deerfield Beach, FL, December 2007 [Click to enlarge]

My lovely wife keeps a couple of eyes on part of her brood. One of those moments that often seems to be gone in a blink. I'm glad I caught it.

[I'll post this week's Caption This entry later today. I was feeling a bit reflective before tuck-in, so I hope you don't mind my indulging in a little self-portrait fun.]

Your turn: Look deep into this picture. What do you see?

I see a sense of family, of protection. In one eye there you are with the camera, and in the other are the kids. Way cool.

I love that! The reflection of the sea and the kids and you is awesome! Great shot.

I see a Mommy concerned and watchful. I like this picture a lot Carmi....And I love seeing the slight reflection off of her sunglasses, too!
I think you should do "portraits" more....I love seeing your more personal view of those you love so dearly.

"Reflective." Good one. :) Is that one of your kids in the other side of her glasses? Is so, that's a fun family portrait.

Fun comments on the new Mac stuff, too. I always watch for your comments when they come out with new things. I think you're right on about this new computer and iTunes.

Anyway, fun picture!

I see a family having fun on the beach :) It's a great picture because you find yourself looking at the reflection.

Hope you're having a great weekend.

Take care :)

I see the young 'boy' in one reflection and her older 'boy' cradling the camera in the other reflection - Deb and her men :-))

Michele and both I love photos of the Levy clan - makes us feel closer to you and yours.

Thank you Carmi :-)

Her sunglasses tell their own story. Nice photograph, Carmi.

I'm taking the literal road, here. I see a right-handed photographer in a blue Hawaiian shirt and a backwards cap standing on a popular tropical beach, probably Gulf-coast Florida, give the size of the waves, the pitch of the sand, and the number of beach goers.

Then after I looked closely at the photo, I re-read the description, and, duh, you already said it was Florida.

Looking through her eyes...

this is a beautiful photo Carmi...the closest we can get to seeing the world as someone else sees it... :)
Have a good week..., Katie

I'm assuming that's your son in her left lens and you in the right. Very clever, Carmi!

Michele sent me today, but I would have stopped in anyway. I'm still reeling over that Jeanne Marie Laskas connection we've got. WAY cool.

Beauty in the eye of the beholder...and the beheld.

Very creative!

Life reflected in one's eyes.

My soul sister is always after the abstract reflection shot and this reminded me of her jumping in the back of the car a few weekends ago, commiserating the perfect river reflected in the glass of the street lamp shot - that she'd just spotted getting in (and of course after her film had run out!)

Thanks for sharing these awesome images with us!

Joan said...

That is. Wicked. Cool.

Sara said...

I see love all around in that photo
