This week’s photo challenge is single focal point. I was having a very difficult time coming up with an idea, something that I could “feel” was the right capture. I realized that I often have an idea but don’t follow through because I may not be proficient at the technique (we all have to start somewhere, right?!?!) or others won’t “get it”.
I knew I did not want to do a flower or anything like that. I am trying to listen more to my intuition, the little voice my dad told me to always listen to. Waiting for inspiration to hit, but there is a deadline here, little voice, don’t take too long!!! So yesterday, while spending some time in my art room (thank you 100-day project!!), I spotted this old doll. I was compelled to focus on her legs.
I found myself thinking about why I like this photo, why this is the photo I want to submit, what meaning did it hold for me. This is the feeling it evokes for me. This gal is sitting in a train depot. She’s a little tattered, is showing her age, but she is in search of a new adventure, whatever that may be, breaking through the barriers, the lock that keeps her stuck. I have the key inside of me. I have been told this so many times. I must be thick-headed, ha ha. This morning the message came to me while I was doing self-Reiki healing. The power symbol!!
CHO KU RAY
Alias: “The Power Symbol”
Meaning: “God and Man Coming Together” or “I have the key”
I can feel a little bit of excitement as I think about it. The “key” is to not let that excitement get pushed down and forgotten.
Let the next leg of my journey begin!!!
