This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Object. http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/01/31/photo-challenge-object/ From the link:
In this week’s challenge, I’d like you to use one tangible object as both your inspiration and subject. It can be the obvious focal point of your shot — like my husband’s juggling ball above, snapped on a beach on the north shore of Kauai. Or you can get creative and find other ways to feature your object — the only requirement is it must be somewhere in your frame.
This week, in a post created specifically for this challenge, share a photo of one object.
On this day January 31, my object photo inspiration is this nine foot tall bust of Jackie Robinson outside the Pasadena City Hall.
Jackie Robinson would have been 95 today. Someone asked me why on the Eve of Superbowl, why I am wearing a Dodger baseball jersey. I told this person I am commemorating the birthday of Jackie Robinson, a hero and an inspiration to us all. Jackie Robinson paved the way for a change in American society that has continued since his debut at Ebbett’s Field on April 15th 1947.
Happy Birthday Jackie!
