Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows

My husband and I took a day trip to the Yaquina Head Lighthouse, a graceful historic lighthouse on the Oregon Coast.  In particular, I admired the lovely, elegant windows.

As we walked around the structure, parallel windows on either side of a passageway caught my eye, and I attempted to capture the view of the sea on the other side.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Structure

The structure of this shell is fascinating to me,  and beautiful. It leads me to dream of new knitting designs with cables and ribs and eyelets. Structure, the foundation of a pleasing photograph and a pleasing knit design – no wonder it catches my eye when I find it.

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.
