Weekly Photo Challenge: Corner

Cliff Robert Barb at Kaelia Pond (1024x653)

My entry for this week’s photo challenge – taken at Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge. Throughout the entire hike, I dawdled with my camera, and the others were always turning corners before me. It’s a beautiful, breathtaking place, so I was really quite okay with taking it in at my own pace.

Merriam-Webster defines “corner” as, among other things, “the point where converging lines, edges, or sides meet.” I also like looking at it from the opposite direction: corners are where lines, objects, and people go their separate ways. A corner is literally a turning point, full of tension and potential.  ~Ben Huberman, The Daily Post.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Collage II

Collage:  An assortment, a collection, a hodgepodge. This week, share one — whether found in the wild or assembled yourself.   The Daily Post ~Michelle Weber

Yesterday I came across this collection of beachy material and snapped a few shots. No changes were made to the composition; this is exactly as the objects appeared in the wild. In the sense that hodgepodge is collage, I believe this fits this week’s challenge.

mystic-city-1024x768

Mystic city seen from our lanai the last day of our visit to Maui. I looked at it for some time before realizing that it was the reflection of buildings behind and to the left of us in the glass of the lanai and not some real, true and tangible place.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fun!

Surfing Dog

This was a fun day! When we went to Maui for our 30th anniversary, my favorite activity was an outrigger canoe trip. It was a leisurely paddle around the bay…we saw sea turtles, my husband dived in and swam around with them…and this cute little surfing dog and his owner came up to us on their board. An amazingly fun day, fun trip, fun moment – and treasured memory.
