Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

I have to give credit my oldest son for being quick on the draw for this one.  Taken with his galaxy tab 10.1, this squirrel gave us all the surprise early one morning.  Jumping from the tree to the screen of a second floor window, this squirrel provided quite the entertainment.  Perplexed on what to do next, he didn’t seem phased that there were people on the other side of the window. 🙂

We are not sure if he made it back to the tree or not.

A Word a Week Photo Challenge – Light

First, I have to thanks Canadian Hiking Photography for posting his shots, or I probably would have never had the opportunity to do this!! (Amazing pics in the snow btw!!)  The idea came from Photo Extremist.

Of course, I had to try for myself.  Now that I know how easy it is, I will get more creative in the future with it.  Oh and btw, its a lot of fun.  I mean really what guy doesn’t like to burn stuff up.

*Safety Disclaimer – Safety is critical….Photo Extremist does a great job describing the necessary safety for this activity……use common sense.

Weekly (no) Photo Challenge: Delicate

I know this is a photo challenge, however today, I will not post a photo.  I find it difficult today to focus on much of anything.

So, instead, I will provide a brief statement in reflection to the word “Delicate.”

We often think of a delicate flower, or a new born child.  Both excellent representations of the word delicate.

Life.  Life is delicate.

If you have not heard, today there was an event that took place in Connecticut.  Tragedy doesn’t even come close to describing the event.  20 young children and 8 adults (last I heard) were gunned down in school.  Innocent lives lost, futures lost, families destroyed.

To those who have lost loved ones today…..

  • my thoughts are with you
  • my heart weeps with you
  • my prayers are with you

We will never understand or comprehend “why”, and there is no picture that capture the “Delicate” nature of “Life”.

A Word a Week Photograph Challenge – Blue

When I think of the word “Blue”, what comes to mind the most is the Alaskan skyline, waters and glaciers. Absolutely Beautiful!!

A Word A Week Challenge: Love

A Word A Week Challenge: Love

Love can mean so many different things, but for me there is nothing better than good ole fashion “brotherly love”.
