This week's theme for You Capture is perspective. I had a really difficult time with this one! One, I am lazy and did not want to brave the cold weather to go outside, which left me confined to my home. Two, I don't have the best camera, and I kept getting blurry shots. And three, I'm lazy. Wait, I already said that. Because I was lazy, I was sitting on the couch giving up on the challenge, when I looked up and saw her.
I didn't get up off the couch to take it, and I like the angle. You can see the rough edges and the texture better than looking at it straight on. Truthfully, not only do I forget about looking at her from different angles...but sometimes I forget she's there at all.
When Shane and I honeymooned to Belize, I bought her. We had just toured a Mayan ruin, when we came upon a boy selling stone carvings. He had a lot of nature-themed carvings, but much to Shane's chagrin, I fell in love with this one. She's the Mayan goddess of fertility, childbearing, and natural herbs and medicine. The boy told us, with a wink, that if you put her in your bedroom, she'll help you get pregnant. Obviously we didn't need her in our bedroom, but I love having her in the house. The stone is smooth, yet beautifully layered and rough at the edges. On the back, the boy wrote her name, all that she represents, along with his name and address. I love it!
And because it's Wednesday, you get a belly shot! Since we're doing perspectives here, I thought I'd do one from the front (even though the full frontal makes me look wide--also, what up purple bra?). Oh, also, I finally have a feeling as to the sex of this baby, but I'm so not sharing with anyone, in case I am wrong. You'd have to get me drunk to get that information out of me, and obviously the odds of that happening are right up there with me winning the lottery (those odds brought even lower by the fact that I don't play the lottery).
I want you to notice my awesomely hilarious shirt that Keely of kiddie winkles so graciously made custom order for me. I think my Mayan goddess would dig it!
