Happy Monday! I hope everyone is having a great start to their week. I am hear to share a bit of inspiration from our Project 52 group and share a hand full of the wonderful images and stories everyone shared for our “Liquid” theme. I love to see the diversity but what makes my heart most happy is seeing the growth and watching people leap out of their comfort zone. Those that not only share their work, but their heart. There is SO much beauty around us and the way everyone captures it is so unique. When I am going through for Eye Candy, it isn’t the prettiest photos that just grab me… I love the stories too. I love the effort. I love the thought. I love the people you can see literally pushed harder and really benefited. The lovely thing about this project is you don’t have to be the BEST photographer to be featured. I wish I could feature everyone. The reward isn’t the feature anyhow. It is the journey. I am truly sad this is our last year. It has been a privilege.

This time of year, I notice our group starts to wane down a bit and become a bit more intimate. As there aren’t as many submissions are there are in the group at the beginning of the year (understandably so), there also are less images to feature so you may notice our eye candy posts getting a bit smaller as well. That is totally common so don’t get discouraged if there aren’t as many images chosen.

And a reminder:

If you are newer to the project or would like to jump in, there is a wealth of great information on how this project works in our Facebook group, especially under the “Files” area. You can find our group HERE. All are welcome.

Submission 2- I am definitely being pushed beyond my usual subjects with this project, Normally it annoys me how long it can take to get a soap container clean when it is empty because I think of the wasted water, but last night I enjoyed it thanks to the {liquid} theme. Never thought I would be free lensing bubbles up close or noticing the sunset in them.

Time magazine just voted Huntington Beach, California the best beach in the U.S. I’d have to agree. It’s where my husband and I had our first date. My ‘California girls’ have grown up going to this beach. It holds a special place in our hearts and I couldn’t agree with Time more!

This can be interpreted anyway you like and either be the meaning of the word or a metaphor. Just have fun with it!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I am here with our Monday morning inspiration Eye Candy for our “Freedom” Theme. As always I am blown away by the submissions and images shared.

This time of year, I notice our group starts to wane down a bit and become a bit more intimate. As there aren’t as many submissions are there are in the group at the beginning of the year (understandably so), there also are less images to feature so you may notice our eye candy posts getting a bit smaller as well.

The past two weeks we have been at the Cleveland Clinic. My husband underwent a 14 hour open heart surgery to repair an aneurism last week. This is his 3rd open heart surgery here and his favorite part of recovery is to make it to their magnificent rooftop to get his first breath of fresh air after days in the ICU and step down unit. This is definitely his first taste of freedom from being bedridden and we know that once we are able to go up here we are close to discharge!

Freedom isn’t free.

24/365 “Freedom”

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed down for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunsets years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
-Ronald Reagan

Sorry, I have been missing for a while and this will be a little long but needs a little explanation.

This week while visiting my grandmother we went through old pictures and looked at my grandfather’s documents. In 1935, when he was 15, my grandfather’s family sent him to live in the USA to escape what was happening in Germany. He wasn’t escaping the Holocaust, in fact as a child he was forced to be in the Hitler Youth, but his family was scared of what was happening around them and got him out. He arrived in the US, gained citizenship, married my grandmother, then enlisted and returned to Europe to fight in WWII. An officer who he drove a jeep for even allowed him to travel to his hometown and visit with his family members.

There are so many more details to the story that make it even more amazing, but this is quite long enough for a post. It is truly a story about freedom. Finding freedom from a fascist dictator and a world that was more terrifying than we can imagine today. Then returning to fight for the freedom of others.

Ever since I can remember I was taught that “IceCream makes it all better”. As an adult I find freedom from most any situation in icecream. It is both a curse and a blessing. Tonight’s selection is cioccolato and panna cotta from the gelato shop in our new home of Vicenza, Italy.
