Weekly Photo Challenge – Liquid

Liquid

This is a picture from one late afternoon as I watched the sun caress the surface of a lake. It was a sight to behold – dappled sunlight shimmering like crystals and a cool breeze blowing ripples on the placid water.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Unlikely

Unlikely 

I almost did not write this post because it was ” unlikely ” I’d find a picture/s and a story to go along. But it’s one of those rainy days and amid the pitter-patter as I browze through some old pictures, each one seems to bring up a memory.

These two pictures stood out from the rest just because I had not seen them in a while. This is a path I remember walking a lot – dawdling as my tots stopped to admire a dandelion and maybe a bluebird perched on one of the posts.

And this one – skirting the green expanse of the park, I remember having walked, jogged and sprinted probably a thousand times – by myself, holding on to a leash or maybe just matching up to the longer, surer strides of my teenagers.

And so it seemed ” unlikely ” to me that I would ever say goodbye to this beloved path….but I did as I stepped into a new trail, my family and I stringing new memories….

Weekly Photo Challenge – Smile

Smile

Wildflowers

Spring is here in full bloom and so are these minuscule wildflowers, blanketing the surface of earth and bringing a smile on my face every time I head out for a walk!

There’s just something about them – what is it? Is it their fragility or their vibrant hues…but oh! they look so vulnerable and beautiful.

As I step out, I always pause and look out for them….

They never fail to light up my face and brighten my day!!!

WPC – Variations on a theme – the sky at daybreak

Every morning upon waking I peek at the eastern sky ’cause that’s where all the drama takes place and I’m never disappointed! No, I’m awed and stunned by the aerial play – the pinks, lilacs and blues, sometimes muted and at other times intense, the stratus, strato nimbus and cirrus clouds, sometimes solitary and at other times clustered, always moving on and of course the vast plain sky baring the planet Venus and the not-yet-set moon!
