This picture was taken at the world-renowned Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, June 28, 2009
The whale itself is white, which started the wheels spinning as I was searching for a memorable photo for Lisa's Black & White Wednesday. I knew it would be the focal point of the picture because of it's size and color. And that's ok, as long as a poignant memory accompanies it. Yes, for me, the picture has to jog a thought... tell a story... a voice without a voice. As James Barrie put it, "Memory is what God gave us so that we might have roses in December." In this photo, mySamuelson and Miss Gracie are watching the whale: surely in awe? Perhaps a tinge of fear???? Without being able to see their faces, one is left to wonder, which in turn demands even closer inspection. Unfortunately, I don't remember the type of whale. However, I do remember we had a whale of a good time!
This was our first trip to Atlanta.
As well as our first family outing with Aunt Sair Sair and Cousin Adam.
And "Yep", those are a series of un-finished tattoos on her arm. I have yet to create a post on "Aunt Sair Sair". It's in-the-works. :) In the meantime, you can hop over to my blog Snapshot Sundays and read a small piece about her.
