Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

I just love the Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post @ WordPress.com.  I look forward to the new challenge when it is posted on Friday.  This week the challenge is GREEN!  My interpretation comes from a trip I shared with my husband to Niagara Falls.  The breathtaking views of the falls from Niagara Falls State Park where we enjoyed the American and Bride Veil Falls on the Cave of the Winds were exhilarating.  In a place where one would think to see only blue, I found a rainbow of color, especially green.  The park offers lush green pathways and a green trolley to take you from one end of the 400 acres to the other.  It is a place everyone should visit at least once.

“New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Picture by Jamie Nowinski

Everything old is new again!  This re-purposed sculpture was spotted basking by the barn at a Corn Maze at Treinen Farm just outside of Madison, Wisconsin.  Using old parts from cars, machines, and other items around the farm, the artist created several creatures for our enjoyment.  This one looks like a raccoon. See the eyes? It gives it away.

You can get involved in the Weekly Photo Challenge, too!  Here is how it works:

  • Each week there will be a prompt. You take a photo of your interpretation of the prompt and place it on your blog.  Do this anytime before Friday of the following week or before a new prompt is given.

  • To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

  • Subscribe to The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.

It is so easy, and so much fun!  Be Challenged, Today!  :)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

 

Table Geometry found in a weekend excursion.  The make-up of the table and the grids on the benches are showered with geometric shapes.  Even the bricks on the walk are bursting with geometry.

Share your interpretation of geometry by posting a picture for the The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry. Be sure to add postaday to your tag line so that your photo will be easy for others to see.

Poignant Partings at Paw Paw Lake – 20 Lines Weekly Photo Challenge

Posted on

Paw Paw Lake, Michigan

The saddest time of vacation is the last night.  A week of sun, boating, family, and good times must end.  It is as if you can hear the loons playing “Taps” in the distance.  All the food has been eaten, and the gear is packed away. Just one more sleep, and it will be time to leave the cabin by the lake.

We will say adieu to the lovely water and goodbye to the glorious days.  We will return next year to enjoy your peace pace and your beautiful display of the natural world.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

Posted on

Daddy carrying the Little Dragon on Halloween

Halloween Savior

It has happened to us all.  The “I can’t take another step or I’ll die.” feeling that comes from too much activity.  It would be great if there were someone to carry us when we are exhausted and cannot go on.

This photo is the epitome of a fleeting moment when we are too exhausted from Trick or Treating and Dad carries us on his shoulders.  Once we age a little and become too big, this experience becomes a distant memory.

This challenge can be found at An Exercise in Discipline.

Quotes from the Masters: Fellini -Silence

Posted on

“If there were a little more silence, if we all kept quiet…maybe we could understand something.” Federico Fellini

Stop! Slow down. Take a breath. Listen. Do you ever just listen to the world around you? Surrounded by a myriad of sounds in daily life, how often do you have true silence?

 Everything in our world seems to emit noise. The radio and the TV are obvious noisemakers; however, turning them off offers no relief.  You must then contend with the white noise of refrigerators running, the air conditioner fan blowing, and the clock on the wall ticking. Life is so loud.

 It would be interesting to go back in time to when there was no electricity, and experience the silence. A time when you could lie in your bed and hear nothing but your own breathing. There would be no cars on the roads to wake you with their loud music, no planes in your airspace, and no streetlights buzzing with the sounds of the night. It would be so peaceful.

 The noiselessness, would allow you to think. Possibly, even feel like you could actually relax and not have to move to keep up with the taxing sounds. Maybe you would hear the wind blowing through the trees sounding like nature’s wind chime, or your alarm clock could be the birds chirping happily in the morning. Life could slow down.

 Perhaps, as Federico Fellini quotes, “…we could understand something.” You would have time to pay attention to the words your children speak. You could attend to the lonely neighbor, or take notice of the sadness of a spouse. You would have the ability to remove the deafening world around you and truly understand the importance of what is being said. The seemingly small interruptions experienced today such as cell phones ringing and buzzing, rob you of the ability to truly stop and listen.

 It may be wise to take some time to turn off all those attention-grabbing devices that clog up your hearing, and really listen to what is going on around you.  You may be surprised at what you learn and understand in the name of silence.
