This is the last week of the weekly photo challenge I have participated in over the past year. I’ve enjoyed the challenge and getting my photos out there for people to see. For the last challenge, the writers shared their all time favorites and invited us to share ours.
I’ve been lucky enough to get to travel to a lot of interesting places over the past few years and have a ton of travel photos. I still think this one from Norway is my favorite.

My first thought when I saw this challenge was to post one of the many waterfall photos I have. While driving, I remembered this photo from Philadelphia during the crazy March snowstorm. It is one of my favorite recent photos and shows liquid in the form of snow.

Today’s Photo Challenge asks to explore what it means to find your place in the world. Am I a big city guy or a small town guy? Is there a place I feel most at home? For me is it not the place. It is the people. This picture is my family being weird at a get together at my brother’s house. Small town. Big city. Doesn’t matter if I have family.
Today’s challenge is perfect for me. I have many sunrise and sunset photos. I chose this one because I loved the falls and because this photo represents the sun setting on our African journey.
I chose a sunset photo, but I’m more of a sunrise person. I love to see the sunrise as I have my coffee in the morning, especially since most of my sunrise photos are from my vacations. The sunrise for has become a symbol of rest and relaxation. I know it rises on my work days as well, but I rarely take the time them to enjoy it.
I tend to use old pictures for the weekly photo challenge instead of creating a new one because I spend my days in an office and only take pictures these days when I’m on vacation. One day maybe I will have the time to take new photos based on the weekly theme.
This week’s challenge was A Face in the Crowd. I was thinking about what I have that would fit the challenge and recalled all of the “start of the race” photos from when my son ran cross country in high school. He is in this crowd and if you know him you can find him. Many people of many different sizes, races, religions, etc. are in the group, but all united by the sport.

This week’s photo challenge prompt was Beloved. This is an easy one for me. The most important thing in my life is my family. I can’t imagine life without my kids. They are what keep me going in the darkest of times. This photo is a combo of two of my favorite photos of my kids when they were little. I found them recently when scanning old pictures. They are 21 and 17(almost 22 and 18) now and I am close to an empty nest. I miss these days.

The challenge word this week was cheeky. As soon as I read the sentence that mentioned signs, I knew this was the one I would use. I’ve always like taking pictures of signs that are funny or signs that say no photography. This was our fun with a sign on a family trip to Arizona. He’s a rebel.

The prompt for the weekly photo challenge was serene. I almost posted a summer photo, but then decided that nothing says serenity like a snow day. There’s nothing like waking up in the morning to a fresh blanket of snow and the news that you don’t have to go to work. I love sipping my coffee and watching the local coverage of the snow before I eventually go about the task of shoveling us out.

This week’s photo challenge theme is Transformation. I took this picture over the weekend in New York. We walked the High Line, an elevated railway converted into a public park. It was a great walk through the city landscape. This picture captures how the railway has transformed over the years.

The weekly photo challenge theme this week is layered. I’m not sure it is really what they are looking for, but this church in Norway immediately popped in my head. The Heddle Stave Church in Heddal in Notodden. It was a beautiful building.
