My Friday Finds

I've been thinking a lot about this space.... how a blog tells the story of our life....  and Oh my goodness... how my story has changed.

It will be so interesting to look back at this space.... this time.... It's just so different from our 'real life'.

As much as I want to be home....as much as I love home.... and all it's comforts.... There's been many gifts here..... especially creatively.....

I've been stretching my style...... I mean seriously..... today's photos .....so far from 'me'..... But, I'm thankful for the opportunity to stretch and grow..... 

I have a real love for street photography..... Now that we are in the city....I've actually been able to give it a go.....there's so many fascinating people and places to shoot. 

I thought the fellow up top was amazing.... His music was beautiful.... I really wish I had filmed this...... so I could capture the lovely sound..... 

And this fellow..... I've seen him 3 mornings in a row.... on the same bench.... at first I thought he was crying... his position ....seemed so defeated...But I think he's simply sitting in the morning sun....sleeping.... his cane..... a head rest.........

When the time finally comes...when we can make our way home.... I won't have to say.... 'hello lovelies, we are back.....'
My photos will continue to tell the story...our story........
pretty pictures....and Benny....My words... a little lighter... a little brighter.... 

HOME....... 

I can't wait for that day to come....... But, for now... I give thanks for this space....for each of you....that visits....and shares your finds and photos..... with so much gratitude......

Have a beautiful weekend.....

Please share your Friday Finds below..... 

xo,

These are exceptional photos, each one speaking for themselves probably differently to each one of us...beautiful Kim.

Kim, I'm amazed at how you are able to find the blessings in everything...you remind me that life is precious, always. Thank you! This is a reminder I need to hear. It's wonderful to see this new street-photography side of you - I love all your photos! You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. xo

I'm loving your street photos too... it's something I would like to try, but I'm never in a city long enough, and when I am, it's usually at a store :(. I adore the shot of the man on the bench - simply stunning.

I love how you are looking at this time in your life and how it is showing in your photography. Love the processing on the gentlemen on the bench.

a favorite quote of mine is 'change often comes bearing gifts' by price pritchett. i think we just have to be open to seeing things differently to notice them. which you are. and it is such an inspiration. continued prayers for your family. love, kelly

Your growth through this whole experience is quite amazing. God is using you BIG TIME! Love the photo of the gentleman on the bench, so many stories I could create in my head from that photo. That to me is a great photo!

I'm admiring all your new photography work and watching you blossom....so remarkable. Each comment above mine is so encouraging ... as you see, you are still inspiring us, encouraging us, as we follow your dramatic life change. God always shows us, if we look, for the best in difficult times...which so many of us have experienced. I feel truly blessed to be a part of your life, and so many, many others here in Kim's World. Thoughts and prayers continue from Indiana. Hugs and blessings to you! Beautiful processing, and extraordinary captures! Love - Beverly

I love street photography too. I just don't get to do it. Seize the opportunity. Make the most of it dear one.

Though I've been taking pictures for many years (started on film), I'm not generally a 'people' photographer. I've been told I should 'branch out', be bold, be brave. lol A few years ago I took a photograph (with permission) of a group of Mennonite children/young women. Unfortunately, I had a faulty camera at the time, and although I did capture the essence of what I had hoped the photograph to convey, it wasn't perfect. I moved on, not wanting to stand there snapping photographs of these young people whose parents had been so gracious as to let me photograph them to begin with.

I'm not sure why I've always balked at street photography, or photographing people.

The photo of the man on the bench speaks to me, it's so 'my' style, yet, if I saw that gentleman sitting there myself, I'd probably look, wonder, maybe smile, and walk on by, not wanting to intrude on his moment. A shot missed. A beautiful shot that speaks volumes.

Thank you for sharing. :-)
