Weekly Photo Challenge: Transient

Drifters, nomads, and even the state of impermanence: this week, share your photos of transient.  ~Andrea Badgley, The Daily Post.

A leaf, a literal drifter. On its way out to sea or working its way back to shore? Seen floating, lazily, in this inlet. Calm, mellow transient.

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Good Match

The Challenge:

This week, share a photo of a satisfying pairing from your own life….You can mix and match places, people, objects, and activities that represent your idea of a harmonious, pleasing combination.  ~Ben Huberman, The Daily Post

Bright leaf, beachy grasses, feathers, sand. I love how these found objects create a unified whole.

WW: A Day in Cannon Beach

Wordless Wednesday – late in the day, but nevertheless…

Right now there is talk of snow – here in the Willamette Valley and at the Coast – which is pretty exciting for us, as we don’t experience many snowstorms, or even snowfalls.

These pictures, though, were taken in October when I spent a few days in Seaside, with a day trip to Cannon Beach. Here are some views that caught my eye.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dinnertime

I love this week’s challenge!

While on a long walk at Cannon Beach, I came upon a seagull obviously enjoying a delectable dinner.

A Seagull and His Dinner

I was curious to check out the main course…

…and was dreaming of cioppino as I left him to finish his meal.
