Kate Bush's Big Sky
London, ON, July 2010
About this photo: This is one of my favorite pictures from this past year. Please click here to share your own and see what everyone else is up to.Some pictures are really simple. I noticed the sky as I arrived at home and parked the car. I didn't think there was any particular story to tell from the scene unfolding above, but I did know that it looked really unique, and if I dallied for too long it would soon be gone.
So I got out of the car and shot it quickly as my onrushing kids looked on. As we headed into the house, we talked about why I sometimes like to remember ordinary things, and that I don't always need a real important reason to do so. Almost as soon as we were inside, I looked back and noticed the clouds had already begun to shift. I closed my eyes and quietly hoped they had tucked this moment away among all the other moment we've accumulated since they were born.
Your turn: Why do we need to remember the everyday?
