Outside the Box

This month’s photo challenge subject is Outside the Box.  I love that you can interpret this in so many ways.  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s photos!

  1.  This is basically my third son, Manny.  He and Jessica have been together for as long as I can remember.  Manny is definitely “outside the box” when it comes to humor, interests and personality.  She appreciates him for all his wonderfulness.

2.  This picture means more than you might initially think.  In December, I never thought I would be fishing with my oldest again.  One open heart surgery later I was able to see him take his gear out of the tackle box and fish for the first time in ages with me and my daughter.

3.  I normally don’t buy pricey things for myself, but when I saw this cobalt blue bottle of tequila I decided to go outside the box and buy it.  This is just a cell phone picture I took to show my son I splurged.  Proof of me actually doing something for myself!


4.  My daughter was in the May Court during the beautiful May Procession at school.  This is my favorite picture.  Everyone else is staring ahead while my outside the box daughter turns to me with a smile.

5.  My niece graduated from Brown this month!  We stayed in a beautiful rented apartment filled with quirky, wonderful art.  I found out the owner is a retired professor from the Rhode Island School of Design.  Her taste is definitely outside the box – and I love it!
