Moments of Expressions

Weekly Photo Challenge: People This weeks photo challenge is simply…people. Below are some of my favorite photos with expressions of happiness. I love it when the click of my camera happens at the right time and place to capture expressions that fade into oblivion within a matter of mere seconds. These make me smile and…

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: “Shadows In The Sand”

Topic:  Ground…Sand…Dirt…Grass…Paths   It’s not every day you come across a Scotsman playing the bagpipes on one of America’s southern beaches.  I feel very fortunate to have captured this while on vacation in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I call it:  Shadows in the Sand *** Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge 

Flower of the Day

  I took a road trip to New England a few years back.  Me, myself, and I conquered the 14 hour drive with only one mishap…a flat tire.  While walking the streets of Ogunquit Maine I saw these lovely flowers, and was compelled to capture them on film.  (Old terminology…I know…but hey, I’m over 50…

Dawn of Night

I captured this sunset photo 6 months ago while visiting my sister at Oak Island, NC. Maybe I’m cheating a bit, as the photo challenge calls for a depiction of something “awakening.”  Then I thought…well…night has a beginning, just as day!  So, I like to call this one, “Dawn of Night.” *** Photo Challenge:  Awakening…

Photography Challenge: Silence

This week’s photo challenge is simply…Silence. I took the photograph above on one of my silent get-a-ways. Forever an introvert, I am drawn to silence. These are just a few of my favorite sounds of silence… Quiet mornings with coffee in hand… In my hammock, all is silent, save the cicada and birds overhead… Lying…

Cee’s Flower of the Day

While on my morning run/walk, I had to stop long enough to capture this photo of the cherry blossoms blooming in the neighborhood. Cee’s Flower of the Day  

Photo Challenge: Dense

Photo Challenge:  Dense So, I took a little creative license with this photo.  I captured it last week, while visiting my daughter in Massachusetts.  In the original, the house was almost hidden by a dense thicket of branches.  I felt, the main focus, was obviously the bird house, so I did a little cropping, and was able…

Photo Challenge: Atop

The Challenge: Experimenting with our point of view in a photograph allows us to establish a setting, tell a specific story, or rethink our own perspective. This week, consider your point of view as you respond to this challenge’s theme, “Atop.” If you’re physically on top of a thing or a place — a mountain,…
