Zoom In/Zoom Out #1

zoom-in-zoom-out-button
Last year Helena began a fun weekly meme of taking Look Up/Look Down photos, which I joined in on one time. This year she is encouraging us to take Zoom In/Zoom Out photos, and I plan to be a regular participant! I doubt that I'll have it together enough to post each week, but I will definitely be sharing Zoom In/Zoom Out photos throughout the year.

Here's my first pair of photos, taken yesterday as we celebrated New Year's Day. My parents were here for the day and after a scrumptious lunch, we played a game of Life.

Here's a look at the overall game set-up ...
... and a zoomed in shot of all four of our cars on the game board as Robbie & Daddy try to figure out whether Daddy should be receiving or paying money based on all the red squares he passed!

Will you be joining in with Helena this year as she Zooms In and Zooms Out?

I think a game was the perfect first challenge choice for you!

I love this pair -it's a new game to me and seeing both shots gave me a great idea of what it's like. Yes, I'll be joining in whenever I happen upon a good pairing
