52Photos | sky

my 52Photos capture

Hopes. Dreams. Rain. Sun. Lightning. Shadows. Shapes. Shade. Clouds. Blue. Clear. Sky.

Things that I think of when I think of the sky. I like looking at the sky. I like looking out the window at the sky. When I was a teenager, I loved looking out my bedroom window, pushing the sheers aside, and looking up at the sky. I think when I look at the sky. I ponder. And think some more/

The other day, Victoria asked me why I looked out the window when I talked on the phone. I never thought about it, but I do. I usually walk around the house doing little chores while I'm on the phone, and inevitably, I eventually find myself at the front window looking out at the horses in the field, the dogs and cats doing their little walks around the property and up at the sky.

It's also this front window where we peek each morning to see what kind of day it's going to be. We can see at the top of the driveway whether there's sunshine up there. Or maybe clouds. We live on a long driveway, you see, and there are mountains and tall, tall trees on each side of our home, so it takes a while for the sun to reach us and the top of the driveway gives us a hint of what our day will hold for us. 

It's all in the sky, you know?

next week's theme


the wrap up

I wonder, are any of you using the 52Photos themes to capture photos of your life?


  1. I know exactly what you mean! You should come to Alberta to see the big blue skies!

    1. Oh, Crystal, I can only imagine how breathtaking the view is!

  2. Your photo is so pretty it looks like a painting! My favorite color is the blue of the sky :)

    1. I used a filter, Nathalie, which turned out way better than I had hoped for. Victoria is a blue girl, too!

  3. Wow, beautiful photo! I love how observant kids are!

  4. I love the sky too... as you might probably have noticed in my instagram feed. ha ha. I could sit on the deck or lay in the grass for hours and watch the sky, the clouds passing by or the stars at night. There is hardly anything more relaxing.

  5. I feel the same way. I have tons of photos of sky and clouds I want to gather into 1 photo book one day.... Probably right after I do books for the kids.
