In response to Jennifer Nichole Wells- One Word Photo Challenge- Bittersweet
Bittersweet. What comes to mind is not a color. And when I googled it to get a better feel for the shade, all I could really ascertain was that it is a shade of orange. The definition of bittersweet is something tasting both bitter and sweet, or an emotional feeling that is both happy and sad.
I find it ironic that the picture that comes to mind when I think of the color- bittersweet- is one that causes bittersweet memories.
I took these pictures almost 5 years ago. Mr. K, Kris and I were at Millennium Park in Chicago, waiting to see Andrew perform with his group at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. Performing on that stage was quite an honor, one Andy would have more than a few times and each time was precious.
Since we had time to kill, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to walk around the park. It is the home of the Cloud Gate sculpture, also known as the Bean. We took a lot of cool pictures there and looking back at them make me smile. It was a good day. In less than 2 years, things would be completely different. That’s the bittersweet part.
I just loved those curls! I would kill for hair like that. 🙂
