Ah! Another Challenge, Photo Challenge

GOLD

Life in Colour Challenge GOLD

This month we will be looking for Gold. Gold is the colour of wealth, of power, of gods. Gold-leaf applied to paintings, gold crowns and coins. But look also for golds in the natural world, a fish, a sunset or sunrise, flowers and autumn leaves or sunlight on water. Or capture the light in the ‘golden hour’.

A Cosmic Photo Challenge

Hello there, welcome to another Monday morning post from The Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week brought to you by the prompt; From the inside.

What an interesting challenge, finding an image that represented FROM THE INSIDE. Looking through my years of archiving my images I did located this one I created a few years ago. It was created with alcohol ink, an art media.

Hurry up and hatch you inside!

World Peace achieved by removing…

COLOR!

AND

The Cosmic photo Challenge always has something interest to keep the Internet alive.

This week it’s showing off the beauty of Black and White. In other words removing the color; what a wonderful WORLD THIS WOULD BE IF HUMANITY (government) COULD LEARN TO DO!

Please enjoy my choices, pictures I captured years ago.

A Time to pray, a time to play, a Get Away!

Can color change? Color is beautiful as Life is beautiful and valuable to all!

Images below reflect the best way to GET AWAY!

Getting away through Lens-Artists. Advice from an elderly, an old woman, me!

We can’t stop the world and jump off!
Even if we could, where would we land
Our place is here; it’s not quicksand!
Life is beautiful; happiness is at hand.
Seek your peace of soul, a gift given!
Relax and pray the only get away!

Find a time to pray
Time to relax and play
Meditation a good source to get away
Stop, listen someone is calling!

Always remember the color of your world changes!

Photo Challenge, true story

The Cosmic Photo Challenge — A Mirror

The theme is RELECTION!

When I noticed this theme of reflection, I remembered a picture I took when I was experiencing HDR photography. As you know, HDR stands for High Dynamic Range imaging.


The story of this photo is: A long, long time ago, my now deceased husband, his grandfather made this mirror with his own hands, so it is truly a one of a kind. I have since passed it along to the next generation.


When it hung in my home, I noticed how the reflection was of steps going upstairs. I took the initiative to place some shoes on the steps; dabbling with the bit of knowledge of HDR imaging, I started to experiment. Results as shown below.

It is said the eyes are a reflection of our soul!

Only God can make a TREE – #TreeSquare

#treesquare challenge is still running till the end of the month. I remembered this photo I took and enhanced a few years back, thought I would share it here on my blog.

But First!

Joyce Kilmer’s poem “Only God can make a tree.”

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

If anyone seeing this ever is in Spokane, please don’t miss a trip to visit Mount St. Michael, a historic and beautiful treat for all. 

For a hundred years, Mount St. Michael has stood on a bluff overlooking the city. One day while walking around the park-like area, I noticed this ancient tree that seemed to be showing off a graceful twist. I could not help but capture its image forever with my camera; with the help of my photo editor, I added a bit of glamour with color and a graceful dancer to couple with the oversized tree growing there. 

Even the trees in the background seem to be dancing!

#PPAC what is it? A fun challenge of Public Art

See ANNOUNCEMENT

This seems like fun to me and living in Spokane, there is a lot of public art, like this ancient rock that I drive by every time I venture out.

The story as I see it!
I imagine someone; one day saw this rock. They suspected it some creature that needed an eye, and I believe they took the time to create an eye.

Below is a close up of the gifted artist’s work.

I love it! I hope you do also!
