WP WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE 02/21/2014:
The following set of pictures were taken on my son’s birthday, January 18.
I recall that, as my husband and I drove to Butler Hospital (Butler, PA), at 2:00 a. m., January 18—1972—every star in the sky shone in the clear night. On January 19 I woke to a white world. A snowstorm had made everything beautiful, as my son was beautiful.
I could have taken a similar set of pictures after that storm had I not caught the flu and had to remain in the hospital extra days. The staff told me it was the worst case of flu they’d had.
We used cloth diapers back then, and we didn’t own a dryer. I hung clothes (including diapers) indoors when the outside lines were covered in snow. In good weather I hung the diapers outdoors.
But I digress.
The suggestion was to take an establishing shot (a broad photo of the subject), a relationship shot (two elements interacting with one another), and finally a detail shot (a close up of one part of the subject).
DETAIL SHOT—choose your favorite ending:
