one of those pictures

this was one of those (polaroid) pictures where i just knew.  i was so drawn to it.  but i didn't know why at the time.  and of course, i second guessed myself (as i often do)... what is it? would anyone else like it? am i crazy for liking this?

but i stashed it away. and then came across it again yesterday. and i immediately knew.

empty house is the title of the image.

our last day in kansas. our empty house. getting ready to leave for the next phase of our family's journey. headed to tampa. sad and excited all at once. i didn't know it then, but this is an extremely important image in my collection of images. i think (and hope) it would speak deeply to every military spouse.

my polaroid SX-70 is such a special part of this photography journey of mine.
