Weekend Snapshot: Bring Me Some Water

Pure Life II
IMG 6447


This is a macro shot of my daughter's mangled water bottle that she held at the end of the game her team won last week. They defeated a team that had gotten into the habit of defeating them, and it was loads of fun. I took a second look at the water bottle; from this angle I saw the back of a pair of legs. (I get up at 4 a.m.; everything looks different at that hour--different and somehow alive. The bottle might have told me a different story if I had taken the shot at a normal hour.)

Not only does the kiddo mangle water bottles (there's not much plastic in them these days, anyway) but also she sings like a sweet little angel at church. Last week she received this medal for passing a second music test in which she demonstrated knowledge of music as well as of church music.

  2. I can see two legs walking away, it seems. So funny!

    Congratulations on the win, and the singing medal: such a week for her! Enjoy these highs.

  3. Actually I'm seeing a 3/4 view from the front. With a knee brace on the nearer (right) knee.

    Could just be my own knees talking to me because of the weather though.

    There's even less plastic involved in those Nestle Pure Life bottles than most. They mangle really easily (maybe because they're metric? I dunno).

    That first shot is cool. It looks like an ice sculpture.

  10. A mangled water bottle and a church music medal provide and interesting contrast. Aren't kids great? Life would be positively boring without their complexity.
