Photo Challenge: Fray

20130116-acidtrip2-DSC_1694

I hear the fray. I don’t see it. It’s just down the hill from where I live. I don’t enter the fray. I avoid the fray. I’m not afraid to tango… it’s just that they’re so crazy. They’re always in a rush or distracted and not really into the moment as life should be lived. I’ve seen them with eyes squinted into the glaring Sun. Sometimes they mouth silent songs that are drowned out by the whining of tires on pavement. I think they’re called commuters. I just call them crazy.

Photo Challenge: Silhouette

20140312-OB1_DSC0109x1000

There’s little nuance in a silhouette… bang… it’s right there in deep contrast with all that surrounds it. It’s a simple graphic element that does not take much brain power to decipher. Yet, as simple as it is – at the same time – it is powerful and strong. Can’t ask for much more. Can you?

Photo Challenge: Texture

My day has a texture all its own. Soft light brings awareness and blessings for another chance at redemption… hard noon-day light leaves me squinting and reaching for sunglasses and thankful for landscapes in black and white where the harshness gives off so much chiaroscuro… evening drapes me in velvet with a glass of red wine to celebrate my imperfection and the chance to weave a new cloth on the morrow.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’

20120627-sf2-DSC_7337_1920Not sure this is a challenge that’s age appropriate for someone closing in on Social Security. ;-) I do vaguely remember my teen years. After that the kids seemed to come along kinda quickly and summers were all about camping, teaching them to swim and trips to Tahoe and you get the picture.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Containers

20140718-contain_DSC9551_19What is a box? Some cardboard shaped with four sides, a top and a bottom? What’s that room where you sleep? Four walls, a floor and a ceiling? Where are you contained? ;-) My challenge this weekend… get out of my box. Hope to see you out there with camera in hand!
