In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Snapshot Stories.”
Daily Prompt Instructions for the day :
1. Open the first photo album you can find – real, virtual, your call
– I opened my Picasa web album
2. Stop at the first picture of yourself you see
– I did. With the shadows on the wall, glare on the photo frame and on my so-out- of- fashion, metal rectangular glasses; this is definitely not the snap I would have liked to share with the world 😦
But that’s the rule for today’s game !!!
We were on our way to attend a cultural program in our neighborhood when dear husband clicked this photo. What was husband thinking ? Was this the perfect ‘Mother- Son moment’ he had been waiting to capture for months? Naah ! he was bored. He did what little boys do with toy guns, they fire the rubber bullets aimlessly. Here, we have a big boy with a camera. Old habits die hard !!! 🙂 🙂
I’m wearing a saree, Indian traditional dress,the nine yard wonder. It takes hours of practice to perfect the art of draping one. I love them. This particular one, sea green chiffon with small floral prints, belongs to my mother. In fact, the blue and white pearl necklace, I’m wearing here is also hers. She says, she’s too old for wearing them.
Ideally, my chic, white clutch purse would have best complimented my attire for the evening. But mothers of 5 year old, need to carry a lot of stuff – water bottles, extra T -shirt, hand wipes,toy cars. For us,utility overrides fashion. We prefer spaces, bulky bags on all occasions 🙂
Wow! an old snap, brought in so many happy memories.
Thanks, Daily Prompt, for helping me reconnect and relive these moments.
