Photo Hunters~Original

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


I am not ashamed to admit that this week's theme had me stumped. I am also not ashamed to admit that this might be a sign that I am taking this much too seriously. As always, knowing is half the battle, right? So it is the knowledge that I am unable to NOT take it seriously, that helps me accept my NEED to find the perfect image to convey this theme. To do so...I needed to understand the word "original" more clearly. I did as all crazy responsible Internet addicted individuals do, and googled it. DON'T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT!
Here is the definition:

o·rig·i·nal
–adjective 1. belonging or pertaining to the origin or beginning of something, or to a thing at its beginning: The book still has its original binding.
2. new; fresh; inventive; novel: an original way of advertising.
3. arising or proceeding independently of anything else: an original view of history.
4. capable of or given to thinking or acting in an independent, creative, or individual manner: an original thinker.
5. created, undertaken, or presented for the first time: to give the original performance of a string quartet.
6. being something from which a copy, a translation, or the like is made: The original document is in Washington.

–noun 7. a primary form or type from which varieties are derived.
8. an original work, writing, or the like, as opposed to any copy or imitation: The original of this is in the British Museum.
9. the person or thing represented by a picture, description, etc.: The original is said to have been the painter's own house.
10. a person whose ways of thinking or acting are original: In a field of brilliant technicians he is a true original.
11. Archaic. an eccentric person.
12. Archaic. a source of being; an author or originator.

Guess what.....that didn't help. Maybe the Synonyms and Antonyms would help:

—Synonyms 1. primary, primordial, primeval, primitive, aboriginal. 7. archetype, pattern, prototype, model.
—Antonyms 7. copy.

Ummmm...yeah...still wasn't feeling it. I mean all photos are basically originals, I mean....no two pictures are exactly alike, right? Yet, how could I just simply post ANY picture? Nope...that just wouldn't do.

After days of agonizing over this silly theme...I finally settled on something. Even as I press the publish button on this post I am doubting my choice, but serious...I have bigger things in life to worry about, right?


I'd like to present my daughter, finger painting for the first time. As you can see she is deeply engrossed in creating an original, one of a kind masterpiece!

Andrée said...

You made the perfect choice: an original (and creative) daughter making an original and creative piece of art. My favorite art was always the fingerpaints of my kids. The colors were great and they are always expressive.

Flawed & Disorderly said...

Just wanted to leave a quick note before I go to sleep. Thank you SOOOO much for posting a pray for Lindley button on your blog! You are a sweetheart and it makes my heart melt to see the kindness of strangers. Oh, I'm Lindley's mommy by the way. :D Thank you for your kindness. Blessings to you and your family.

Patriot said...

How cute! I just wanted to let you know that I stopped by your blog! I was wondering if you have any favorite American made products? I'm trying to compile a list of quality products that are still made in the USA. Come check out my site and let me know if you have any favorites. I add new links everyday. I don't make any money off of this - I just want to see more jobs stay here in America - and more high quality products that are safe.

Please stop by and let others know as well!

Thank you!

Wow, that photo is so beautiful and sharp. Looks like it came out of some magazine cover or inspirational poster. Nice.

Your pic is perfect for this week's theme. Not only is Sugar Bear creating her own artwork, but like all of us, she, too, is a one-off original. Have a great weekend!
