I am still pleased with how that photo turned out but I think my favorite is…. one titled Scale or maybe my favorite is… a Wish. How do I pick?

Twisted path to the earth.

We are accustomed to not see a tree’s roots. They grow deep and strong while supporting the tree; hiding its strength in the ground.

This tree shows bravery and determination allowing its roots to be seen.

In this week’s photo challenge, show us something twisted.

My place in the world. (WP Photo Challenge)

This week we were asked …

For this week’s photo challenge, explore what it means to find your place in the world. Where’s your safe space? Where do you go when you need to feel inspired or cheered up? Do you prefer to feel cozy and comforted in a smaller town or do you thrive on the buzz of a big city? If landscapes aren’t your thing, you can even explore portraits by playing with scale or fashion.

Let loose and give us a glimpse of who you are in the grand scheme of things.

I once read that ‘what you photograph shows who you are.’  When reviewing my photosP_20180506_115758_vHDR_On I have endless photos of nature. The shapes and textures that provide “scope for the imagination”. I feel the most content surrounded by shades of green and a soft wind kissing my cheeks. My grand scheme seems to be nuzzled up close to the flowers.

Patchwork Ponderings (1)
A summer sunset

 

My sunset was inspired by another photo I saw. Next summer I’ll bring someone with me for my evening walk. I’ll have them hold the dandelion. I think I’ll get a better shot since I don’t get down to the ground very well anymore! lol

I generally am not one to be out and about at sunrise. This snowy morning our darling son needed to be somewhere.

Sarabi: Your son is awake.

Mufasa: Before sunrise he’s YOUR son.

It was a beautiful sunrise to watch. Perhaps I’ll be more motivated to watch a few this summer?

Out of our World?

 

This weekend we visited a world-known place, that is ‘in our backyard’. Thousands visit this attraction each year. While this weekend was on the warm side for our winter, it wasn’t as warm as this place.

I love visiting here. It’s amazing how such tiny, delicate creatures can make you feel small.

What’s equally amazing is the closer you look the less familiar/ less ‘of this world’ these creatures get!

I think you know what the subject of my photos is…

But I’ll wait until tomorrow to post a few other photos that will show you if you haven’t guessed!
