The Last Thing That Made Me Cry

I'm an overly emotional person. The smallest thing can make me burst into tears. Would you like to know the last thing that made me cry?

A commercial.

Yes, a television commercial. This commercial plays regularly and every single time I see it I tear up and at least one drop falls. I cannot help myself.

This must be a powerful commercial, you ask yourself. No, not really. It's about a website called Zillow. Well let me show you as opposed to explaining it.

I just watched it through to make sure it plays properly and here I am with tears in my eyes. This chokes me up every time.

That Time I Photographed A Spirit

As a general rule I regularly carry around one camera or another. You never know when you're going to catch something unbelievable. This was no exception.

My husband and I were attempting to get out of my parent's house (since we were living with them while transitioning between California and Utah) and we decided to go for a little drive. Just up the road from my parent's home there was an old bridge that had recently been washed out and removed. For some reason I thought it was a perfect spot to snap some pictures.

I can't say there was anything exceptionally exciting about this bridge but it just peaked my interest. After I snapped the first shot I noticed that there were spots on the lens. I know people say that those little dots are spirits but I'm not quite sure about that. I always carry a cleaning kit with me when I take a camera anywhere so I cleaned off the lens and snapped another picture.

I didn't see any spots. Do you? So I came up on the bridge from the left side and snapped another photo. I pulled back the camera to to admire my photo and what do I see?

There on the left portion of the bridge, 3 railings from the left side of this photo, what looks like a child's silhouette. I can't tell you if that's just another set of spots that I missed but it's conspicuously shaped and really quite eerie. 

To this day I truly believe that's the spirit of a child. Maybe a child that lost his/her life on that bridge. All I know is that this photo makes me look harder at every photo I've ever taken.

I'm Following A List

In an attempt to get myself to blog more I'm going to start blogging from THIS list either once, or twice, a week. I'm really hoping it will get my creative juices flowing and I'll have more to talk about. I feel like a lack of posts leads me to close my blog. I don't want to do that. Cross your fingers and watch for more posts.
