365 People Photos: Number 130 -- One I'll Frame

In my last post I mentioned that I was an English major in college. Needless to say, a mind trained to recognize symbolism sees a wealth of material in this photograph. I'm not even going to dip into meaning I see in this picture. Before I share my thoughts of deep meaning hidden in this unposed capture, I'd love to know, what, dear reader, do you see pictured here? What strikes you about Brielle's real-life effort to make her way into the building behind these massive doors? I'd love to know!


  1. Perhaps . . . a child, full of anticipation, as she reaches to open the door to behold beauty and wonder. On the outside, the door is dark and heavy - touched with the stains of the many fingerprints that have been beckoned inside. Yet, inside perhaps there is light and beauty to be seen - a touch of wonder and excitement fill this child as she eagerly awaits the vision she will see. She is eager, as shown by her ascent to her tiptoes. She is dressed as one who is prepared for something special. What lies behind this door isn't ordinary - it is special - it is worth preparation. I see a reminder of child-like faith. I see a glimpse of what we should be as we "reach" to behold the beauty of Christ.

  2. I see sweetness and innocence on the verge of stepping out into a big world. Luckily, she has loving, God-fearing parents and grandparents to guide her way and keep her safe as her world expands.

    1. Awww...thank you, Betsy. Your "caption" is a perfect one for this unexpected moment that the Lord allowed me to catch. Thank you!
