To keep myself entertained and practice my photography skills, I used to publish a series of blog posts, called Random Object Wednesday (ROW). My friends would lend me an item to be photographed in an unusual or creative way.
I hadn’t thought about the series until this weekend while photographing bookmarks.
I asked my friend Tore to take me to historic downtown McKinney. He didn’t know why but figured I had a plan. (I didn’t). I just knew I wanted to photograph bookmarks in a special way. I spotted a bistro table and chairs by a nice textured brick building.
Take a look.
I was quite happy with the bistro table shots but then we noticed this mosaic tile bench nearby. I had to take another photo.
I forgot how much I enjoyed Random Object Wednesdays. There’s a personal connection when photographing something that someone has chosen to have you photograph or in this case, something given as a gift.
These bookmarks were made by Pamela Jenkins. You might remember she participated in the series, “What motivates you?” If you missed it, be sure to take a moment to read it. She explains the story about these special bookmarks.
Also, an interesting discovery I made when writing this post, the last Random Object Wednesday was for her daughter, Alana Jenkins. You can visit the 3-legged milking stool blog post here.
Thank you, Pamela Jenkins, for making the bookmarks. Alana’s memory lives on.
I returned the Random Object Wednesday category to the top menu bar on the homepage. You can visit previous posts and meet the participants there.
