Photo Art Friday - January 4, 2012

Today marks the 15th Anniversary of my dad's passing.  It's a day that I will never forget but as time has passed the "why's" of his sudden passing have lessened and I've learned to accept that he is gone and in a better place.  I will be placing flowers with my mom on his grave today in his memory.  Love you always dad.

It's also time to join Bonnie (Pixel Dust Photo Art) for the very first Photo Art Friday of 2013. - I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.

For the first PAF Bonnie gave us the "optional" theme:  This week you have the option of showcasing a piece of photo art that features a word you have chosen to guide or inspire you for the year 2013.


I thought about this a lot and one thing kept popping into my head was about seeking,
"Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God" came to mind right away.  I looked up the word,
SEEK which used as an Intransitive Verb means:



































My goal for 2013 is to seek more in all walks of my life.  In my faith to grow stronger and closer to God, in my family life to be more understanding, in my photography to grow and seek more knowledge of how to become a better photographer.  To discover new things and to be bold in that search.

Don't forget to check out all the other great Photo Art entries.  I know you won't be disappointed.  Why not take up the challenge yourself and post some Photo Art if you haven't ever tried it.

  14. I like your word and photoart. Believe it or not, we sort of think alike. I also chose a rose for my art and the word "seek".

    Mine is not posted yet because I'm having problems with blogger trying to upload my photos. When the problem is fixed, I'll post mine. Better late than not at all. Thank you for sharing, Edna B.

  15. I´m sorry about your father.

    I like that rose image. When you seek you have to be prepared for what you might find.

  17. Losing a parent is so hard, Ida. I wish you comfort in your memories.

    This is truly a beautiful work of art.

  18. Ida! Grand! Yes, grand comes to mind as I read your post. My father passed on my sister's birthday, so it is hard to recall it is that day, because we are all celebratory about her birthday. I usually recall the year; 1990. My father was 42 when I was born. He lived to be 79. He had had Parkinson's Disease for 18 years. But his death was sudden, too. Just thought you would like to hear about my perception and experience, if it helps any. I love your word. I have chosen "Happiness". I genuinely feel happy lately. I haven't done a blog post on it yet but I will later.

    Happiness to you as you seek.

    :D
