What goes up must come down. Or so the song lyrics say.
My first thought when I saw the Word Press weekly photo challenge “Up” was to take photos of the sky. I mean how much farther up can you see than the sky when you’re standing on the ground and gravity is holding you down?
But the sky in my neck of the woods didn’t cooperate so well this week. Every time I looked up, I saw cranky old gray skies or raindrops kept falling on my head and chasing me indoors.
So I headed back to my picture file on the laptop. Searching through shots I’d already taken, I came across some photos I captured on a trip to the Deep South a couple of years ago.
Our oldest daughter lived in Birmingham, Alabama for several years. One fall, hubby and I took a road trip to visit her and the three of us visited the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville.
The center proved an intriguing place for my ex-military husband and science minded daughter, but I truly enjoyed it as well and I took a ton of photographs. I think a few of them symbolize the concept of ‘up’ quite nicely. But I’ll let you be the judge.
