Picture Fall, Day 12

Although I’m not sure exactly what today’s photo prompt has to do with fall, our instructor wanted us to “take some time out” today, and compose a photo showing something you love to do.  Besides taking photographs, dance is one of my loves.  I never studied it as a child, but I picked it up after watching my older daughter love it so much as a little one.  Now it has become two hours a week that I always put aside for myself, to enjoy being with other adults who enjoy the same activity, and get some great exercise in the process.  These days, my two daughters and I spend so much time at the dance studio among the three of us, our dance teacher joked at our last recital that it was our family show.


  1. Cute pic!
    It’s never too late to get into something you love 🙂

    • So true, Michaela. I’m so much more willing to try things as an adult than I ever was as a child.

  2. Great photo, Karen! That is so wonderful that you’ve picked up dance. I, too, would love to dance but 1) I’m a klutz and 2) I already have too many hobbies.

    • Oh you should come to my jazz class! One hour of fun and exercise – and believe me, we have plenty of klutzy moments! Email me if you’d like some info!

  3. You sure made it a fall photo by including “fall” in your background. Well thought out photo.

    • Thanks, Scott! This photo was actually a bit of work! I had to set my camera on a foot stool to get this point of view and run back and forth setting my self timer several times before I got it framed the way I liked it! I could have shown “fall” in a different way if I wasn’t careful in those slippery tap shoes! 😉

  4. Great photo! It’s the kind of photo that wants to tell a story. 🙂

    • Here’s the story: Karen is a somewhat silly mother of teenagers who makes a fool of herself once a year wearing brightly colored costumes on a stage in front of a few hundred people! 😉

      • I don’t think that is silly at all. I think it’s wonderful and very, very brave. 😀
