What a week! I almost missed posting for Living Arrows this week but have just made it in time. Last weekend, despite it being bitterly cold, we spent a lot of time in our local park. Why do kids never seem to feel the cold? My hands were almost numb despite wearing gloves and my feet were heading the same way. However Archie was picking up ice with gloveless hands and not a peep of a complaint. Both Saturday and Sunday were such beautiful winter days with glorious blue skies and such a fantastic light for photography. It was cold enough that the water was frozen over in the old boating lake and Archie foraged sticks aplenty and tried to crack the ice. As simple as it sounds, it kept him entertained for hours! Afterwards we had some sandwiches and crisps and Archie asked me if I had the picnic blanket with me! Roll on warmer weather!
Living Arrows is a weekly photography project organised by Donna at What the Redhead Said. She describes the project as ‘a moment of parenthood that made you feel inspired to press the shutter.’ The name is derived from a passage about childhood in Khalil Gibran’s The Prophet, ‘You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.’
