Eyes Rolled

Out driving last weekend with my two girls, on a brilliant blue-sky day, I asked them if they minded if I stopped to take a couple of photos.  Girl 1 looked up from her book, looked out each window and asked “Photograph what”?  Now there are a few things in the Australian landscape that I find very hard to drive past without admiring, appreciating and generally wishing I had my camera with me.  A rusty dilapidated shed gets me every time, rows of eclectic letterboxes, yes definitely worthy of a long look and … hay bales.  I looked at my eldest daughter and there it was, the rolling of the eyes and the look that said “my mother is loopy”. While Girl 1 went back to her book, Girl 2 and I scooted out of the car, hoping there were no snakes in the long grass, and happily we photographed the hay bales!

When we arrived home I had terrific fun playing with some of the photos on Photoshop and called Girl 1 in to look at my efforts with the hay bales.  Ah bliss, I received a “Cool”, not a “Coooooool” mind you, but definitely an appreciative nod to what her loopy mother had set out to achieve.

I hope your cool moments are being outweighed by your loopy ones in these slippery slide days to Christmas.
