Michael Pick sent up a WordPress photo challenge this week (from the cell phone). “In today’s challenge wewant you to grab an image from your world that holds the promise or portent of the future. It could be…

  • Anything that involves the present and a hint of the future all in one frame.

We spend so much of our lives thinking back, or looking ahead, and even though a photo captures only one moment in time, with a bit of thought it can freeze the process of moving forward, or the promise of things to come. Your challenge this week is to seal one such moment in amber.”

This is my teenage son, getting ready to start his high school baseball career as a freshman. On the evening I took this photo, we just so happened to be playing with dry ice in the sink. I grabbed up my cell phone to snap a pic. My camera position on the other side of my fountain, along with the dry ice smoke between me and him, and the flash captured by his pupils, all made for an interesting futuristic illusion.
