When the Camera Gets Away

I took my camera to work last week to take some shots of the preschool Shabbat service.

Then my camera went exploring [figuratively, people, figurative] and found some lovely Hydrangeas picked from a garden that would become centerpieces later that evening.

I caught up to it in the Rabbi's office. It had discovered a shofar with a Menorah etched into the ivory, and I discovered the beautiful reflection it made on the glass-covered table.

Shortly thereafter, I had an idea...

The Rabbi, decked for the myriad of events that day, was happy to accommodate my creative whim, even when it included a camera pointed at him. I think I'll try this composition again with something different in the foreground, like a prayer book or Torah.

(Rabbi was so happy with my Apples and Honey pictures that Harrison ended up in the home page of the website.)

In the mean time, the Jewish High Holy Days are less than a week away. If you are Jewish - Happy New Year.

I love that first shot of the bread. Wonderfully vivid with all the kids hands reaching up. Nicely done.

As for prom, well my step son may go and my step daughter has hopes and aspirations of going, the parents are still struggling with the cost of supporting these events. *sigh*
