Kaleidoscope is derived from the Ancient Greek (kalos), “beautiful, beauty” (eidos), “that which is seen: form, shape” and (skopeo), “to look to, to examine.” Hence “observation of beautiful forms.”
We are a group of friends, moms, visual artists and photographers from around the world who are passionate about capturing images of the real, the messy and the magical-the wonder of the everyday. Like a kaleidoscope, our photographs are playful and experimental, ever-changing and infused with light and colour. Once a month, we assemble a single mosaic comprised of our collective pictorial tiles, one submitted by each of us, that reflect the shared meaning and beauty in our lives.
This month for my Kaleidoscope Project contribution, I thought I’d highlight our trip to the Pima County Fair. We questioned whether our kids were old enough to enjoy it and they totally were! I think we’re almost ready for Disneyland…. woot! The kids had fun, we had fun, we spent way too much money and brought home two goldfish. Good times, I tell ya!
