I’ve followed Soul Threading for awhile now and am always inspired. I was over the moon when I saw Stacey’s Iconic Photo come in. We’ve seen detail shots, loved ones, symbolic portraits, but she was the first artist to share a self portrait to us.
Getting in the frame is something I rarely do, so to me, this is brave and beautiful. I love that she didn’t merely SEE something iconic to her, she took that vision and made her self present in the memory.
Homework: Find an iconic place to you and put yourself in the frame. Share your photos with us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a possible feature!
Here is what Stacey of Soul Threading had to say about her image:
“I chose this photo because it is one that shows how much I love light and my children. The light coming through the car here, is what drew me in to taking the photo in the first place. I popped the camera on the dash and set a timer up. I wanted to capture the frog outfit. It represents my family’s humor very well. Laughter is huge for us. I also want to remember nursing my babes, and right before I took this, that is what occurred. It helps me to remember my daughter when she was this little also. It helps to appreciate them, this photo here. They are only so small for so long. It hurts my heart to look back sometimes, a strange hurt. But photographs help heal that pain. A comforting nostalgia.”
