Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

High Flying

For this week’s photo challenge: Silhouette, I chose this photo I took on vacation. We were hanging out on the beach, my kids playing in the sand, people coming and going. I noticed two teenaged girls that came on the beach. I think they had come from soccer, wearing knee high socks, shoes and shorts. One girl just marched right up to the swings, where I had been sitting and just sat down and started swinging like there was no tomorrow. She was fearless and went very high! Her long curly hair flying all around. I took a couple shots since it was such a great sight. She did some serious swinging and was very serious about it. No laughing, “look at me” crap. Just all out hard and high swinging.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Zig Zag

Ok, last of the three WPC’s I needed to catch up with: Zig Zag. Hmm. Kind of hard. Way harder than Summer Lovin’. It makes me think of rolling papers. Remember those? Well, I just looked and they still make them. Shows how much I know about rolling papers.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. A photo that shows Zig Zag……………………………………….Now, I am picturing Will Ferrell shouting, “Serpentine” while running from the dinosaur in a zig zag fashion in Land of the Lost. A very hilarious movie, btw. Crapballs. (Also a Will Ferrell line from that movie.)

Woo! Well, maybe not “Woo” per se, but it is kind of zig zaggy, in an up and down eye movement line following kind of way. Bear with me here. My dog Juni sleeps with interesting feet positions and this is as close as I am going to come to a Zig Zag photo today.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’

Summer Lovin’ is not a hard subject AT ALL! Well, it is hard in that there are so many things to love about summer, especially this one. But here are a few pretty, yet interesting, photos from our Beaver Island Trip. The abstract was a mistake. I was shooting my daughter in the sun reflection in the lake and the camera was totally out of focus. Oops. ;-) But I like it! Summer Lovin’, gosh is there anything better? I just don’t want this summer to end….

Weekly Photo Challenge: Containers

IMG_8818

Sorry for the absence. I went out of town (Beaver Island, MI) and then have been either playing or playing catchup since I have been back. All 3 of those things, have been going well. But, my poor little blog has been neglected. I owe it 3 photo challenges (and more!), and Containers is the first. I am using this photo for Containers because it used to be part of someone’s body, the container for them. I am not really sure what it was. A fish, I suppose. As it lays there, decomposing and twisted, it is hard to tell. It is quite small. The pebbles are the size of a quarter at the large end. I was looking for rocks to bring home and ran into all different kinds of things. Crayfish being eaten by ants was by far the popular life transformation occurring upon the beach. But I liked this one too. This from the beach of our vacation home (that we rented) on Beaver Island, a very magical place.
