Photo Challenge Rise/Set

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.

Photo Challenge: A Face in the Crowd

 

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.

Photo Challenge – Beloved

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 Serenity of a Snow Day

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.
