Between. Capture something in the middle of two things. It can be a person or object, or simply the space in between. It can also be a feeling or relationship — a bond that connects people, or a space that separates. This word might also reflect a choice you need to make — the challenge of choosing one thing over another — or any kind of transition, from childhood to adulthood, single life to married life, day to night.
Cautiously, I stepped up onto the porch of this old, abandoned house, intending to take some pictures through the front window. I was a little anxious about it – spring in south Arkansas brings out a number of insects that can hurt you and I was preparing to dodge a wasp or hornet. As I climbed the steps a flutter of anger brushed past my head and I jumped back down off the porch in a heartbeat. A mother robin danced on the ground in front of me. She was not happy with me intruding on her nesting grounds. I quickly stepped back onto the porch and snapped a couple of pictures, hastily. And watching out for an angry mother Robin out of the corner of my eye.
I love the mood of this image; it matches my emotion and perspective at that point in time – between.
