DAY 79, MEMORIES

20 Mar 2013 11:05PM   Views : 717 Unique : 321

I was doing a bit of painting today and needed a very small brush and I remembered my old oil painting kit that I have had unused in a box file for at least 35 years. Yes I know I'm a bit of a hoarder but I just knew it would come in handy one day. I blame my father who had a saying "it will come in handy if I never use it".

Strangely enough I used to paint landscapes and now I photograph them, I'm not sure which is easier but at least digital files do not smell like oils do. That gave me an idea for today's shot ,

Another idea came from a memento I have. It is a little metal vase that I bought for someone special on her silver wedding anniversary and I was given it back as a keepsake when she died. I keep it together with a remembrance poppy as a little reminder of her and all the other friends, family and acquaintances who are no longer with us.
