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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

Ambience is the atmosphere of one’s surrounding environment….Things like light, temperature, smell, sound, and sometimes taste, all work together to create ambience.  ~The Daily Post, Jeff Golenski

The grounds at this restaurant create exceptional ambience. Yes, there is warmth and light, but the ocean right at its edge provided instant ambience for me.
