This week’s Daily Post’s photo challenge theme is “Careful.”
‘Careful’ makes me think of small things. We are careful with babies, small children, delicate ornaments for fear of injuring them. “But what am I careful with I wondered” and more importantly I added “that I can illustrate with a photo”. Fiddly things come to mind, things I have to focus on – so sowing seeds and embroidery. “Easy” I thought “I’ll take a photo of my current embroidery project”.
Foolish me, it’s not easy to take a photo of yourself sewing; not unless you have someone else to take the photo or you can set the camera up on a stand. How do you focus the camera on your own hand when you have to hold the camera? Impossible. So I have ended up with a photograph of my embroidery without my hand doing careful sewing. It is a careful occupation and the photograph was taken carefully – so I have doubly completed the challenge!
