When I opened the first e-mail prompt for #developingyoureye from WordPress, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
It arrived, the same time as we discovered the flooding last week in our house, our home. My usual choice for ‘home’ themed images would be pretty images of the d.i.y achieved so far, a front door, welcome mat or even our family all together.
Today, this image is ‘home’. Although a bare, scrapped back room, last week it was our living room. It has been through flooding, water testing, pumping with septic tanks blocking the roads. Floor boards and skirting boards ripped out. Curtains removed, all furniture and pictures gone too. Despite all this, it is still very much a part of our home. One I can’t wait to get back into (and not sneaking in for arty shots when the contractors are out!). For me, home is where memories are made, and this room still holds memories, and still plenty more to come I’m sure. The oxymoron in this is seeing where the sunlight hits the joists, in the same places it hit the wooden floor and rug only days before.
