Almost 16 years ago, my husband and I exchanged vows and rings. We got our wedding bands from West Africa, which is very meaningful to us since that is where we grew up. What is funny is we only spent about $50 on each of them back in the day. Sometimes we joke that we're going to take these bands in to one of those We Buy Gold places to see how much they are worth now. But we wouldn't; they mean too much to us.
The verse from Ruth is special to me because I recited that passage as part of my vows. And I guess I have lived up to my promise because here I am in Connecticut!
Up until this afternoon, I was just going to cheat and pull a favorite from last week's You Capture post showcasing doors. But then on the way to the kids' basketball games, we passed a barn I've been meaning to photograph. We were running late, but when you have to have a new doorway, why shouldn't it be a barn door? I love all of the barns up here in New England!

I saw this fabulous picture at one of the local Starbucks of a mug sitting outside carrying a beautiful reflection of the sky. I wanted to give it a try. A couple things that worked against me: It is always windy here at my house, so it was difficult to catch a still reflection. I would have waited it out, but it hasn't gotten past the mid-20s around here, and my shutter finger was becoming numb. I also discovered I had to use manual focus, something I usually forget about. I tried in vain to use AF, but it was far more interested in the dark inside of the cup rather than the beautiful picture floating on top. My shutter finger was really numb by the time I remembered manual focus.
I'll perfect this shot this summer!
