I know you probably read the title of this blog and thought you were going to see a bunch of kids’ portraits for Easter, right? I hope you aren’t disappointed. I wanted to do something a little more original this year. I want to display a portrait of Easter.
Are you wondering what I mean by that? How would you paint (or create) a portrait of Easter? East conjures so many memories and so many meanings….each is different for ever individual person that reads this.
When I think of Easter, I think of the childhood memories with my familly…the new outfit my grandmother had made for me, the Easter basket with candy and toys, the church service that would be taking place that Sunday…and the dinner and egg hunt that would happen after church.
I also think of the symbolism (for me) and this may of course be different for you….we each have our own thoughts, images, and memories that make up what we believe and how we perceive things.
If I was to create a “Portrait of Easter”, I would start with a glorious sunrise filled with birdsongs on a cool but not chilled foggy morning…..though this isn’t a foggy morning…it is a golden sun:
I posted a blog for Easter. Someone else posted a link to their blog post regarding Easter. I found it a very interesting read. If you travel, especially during the holidays, share your posts. Share your experiences. I don’t travel much as of yet. I hope for that to change…but for the moment most of my travels are inside the U.S. borders. I would love to hear how your holidays differ from mine. As a photographer, I am also interested in holiday photos. Here we do portraits of everything, everyone, every holiday, and a lot of events. Pictures help people share their lives and their stories with those who didn’t have the chance or ability to share them in person.
This was an annual Easter Egg Hunt taken on Easter Sunday 2012.
Post your holidays….post a picture of your celebrations….share a comment!
