Wordless Wednesday — A Matter of Perspective

by Janice

Wordless Wednesday -- Olivia and Julia

It is all a matter of perspective.

(The story behind this shot is that Olivia and Julia wanted to hang off that bar. I put Olivia on first and then Julia. So by the time I got Julia on and stood back to take the picture, Olivia’s little hands were slipping. Of course, I am all about the shot — so I stole the shot before grabbing her! lol)

Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL So feel to link up your word-full or word-less Wednesday photos!)

Leave the URL to your photo (clearly mine are never truly “wordless”) and then visit others!

Here is a fun thumbnail linky:

And here is a basic linky if you prefer your linkies the good old fashioned way!

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Thanks! I was crying with laughter when I saw it! What kind of a mother am I — that I grabbed the shot before grabbing her!!! LOL But, it wasn’t that far down if she had fallen! LOL

It really is interesting to hear the story behind the photo. The perspective does change quickly with kids and makes a major difference in facial expressions.


4 Janice June 15, 2011 at 12:24 am

I thought I should tell the story too – makes it make a bit more sense! lol


5 Kristi {at} Live and Love Out Loud June 15, 2011 at 12:22 am

Haha! I would’ve done the same thing! :)


6 Janice June 15, 2011 at 12:23 am

It was TOO hysterical to miss it! I just grabbed it and then grabbed her!


7 Ashley June 15, 2011 at 12:25 am

Ha I’ve totally done stuff like that to my kids too in catch a shot. :)


8 Janice June 15, 2011 at 1:49 am

Glad I am not alone!! :)


9 Cathi June 15, 2011 at 12:28 am

These are the best kind of photos! They tell a story but … no one was actually hurt during the filming! LOL Years from now, I promise Olivia will love the photo. ;D


10 Janice June 15, 2011 at 3:08 am

Exactly! :)


11 Girl Talk June 15, 2011 at 12:29 am

Glad you explained cuz I thought Olivia was terrified. My goodness have they grown.


17 Diana - Teacher Mom June 15, 2011 at 2:10 am

You make me laugh. Instead of saying, “Good save!”, I’ll say, “Good shot!”

25 Una June 15, 2011 at 6:49 am

Thought that I can save the moment is why I am addicted to photo making! We parents would need to save every moment of our children life`s, unfortunately it`s impossible…
Great snap ! :)

I’m sorry that my link was entered twice on the thumbnail linky. The first time I tried I got an error message. When I tried again it showed up twice ;( Please delete one of them. Thanks!

Have a great day!


28 Emilie June 15, 2011 at 9:42 am

30 amber whitehead June 15, 2011 at 10:39 am

Wonderful shot. Stop by and link up over at the zoo if you get a chance. We’d love to have you buy today.



31 Mindy June 15, 2011 at 10:48 am

Oh my goodness, that is quite a different experience for Olivia, for sure! Love that you quickly grabbed the shot before rescuing her…we mom photogs can take the photo AND save the day. lol. Have a great Wednesday. Thanks so much for this great place to link up each week! I look forward to it more than just about anything!

We love this picture, and the explanation that comes with it definitely provides some perspective.


33 DeeDee June 15, 2011 at 11:49 am

Haha…glad I’m not the only parent who is more worried about the shot than the kid. ;)


34 Bibi June 15, 2011 at 11:51 am

Great shot. I am all about the picture as well, lol. I think my kids are used to it by now and just bear with me.


35 Casy Schweickart June 15, 2011 at 11:53 am
