Cherished Pictures

I want to use pictures in my Cherish album that are both personal and impersonal. Personal, in that they evoke special meanings and memories for me, but impersonal, in that most any kindred spirit can find meaning in them. This has taken some hard thinking!

The theme for the next page is waiting. That same birthday card that yielded up the background on page 2 had a picture of a lighthouse...that will do for one of the pages.

But I really struggled with the photo...waiting...waiting in line, waiting in a waiting room, a train station, an airport...then...bingo!



Original photo taken from the top of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris in April of 2008, turned to black & white with the help of Photoshop.
