There was never a good war, or a bad peace. — Benjamin Franklin
I want to make it clear, however, that although I am deeply opposed to war, I am not advocating appeasement. It is often necessary to take a strong stand to counter unjust aggression. — His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Cheri Lucas Rowlands challenges us to capture a black and white images with a mysterious, otherworldly vibe — the viewer wonders what lurks in the shadows. Something eerie has a story to tell — one you aren’t quite sure you want to know.
Every time I visit Pearl Harbor I get that vibe and I think black and white definitely captures it.
This month Kozo is challenging us to love our enemy for the monthly peace challenge. This post is not my response to this, but I do think the wreath in the photo below clearly shows love and respect for a former enemy.

In a new post specifically for this challenge, share a photo which means HORIZON to you!
I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Some of my favorite views on Oahu are of our mountains. I love the clouds on the horizon.

This week’s challenge is brought to us by Cheri Lucas.
- For this challenge, we want to keep it simple: share a photograph with a prominent color (or assortment of colors) that reveals more about you. It could be a symbolic, meaningful shade; a color that expresses how you currently feel; or a combination of colors that excites you and tells a visual story.
I fell in love with Moses-in-the-Cradle when I saw this on a morning walk.
In fact, I just added Moses-in-the-Cradle to my garden as a result, so I’m grateful for the inspiration.
The colors are hard to resist.
I’m grateful I was able to capture these clouds earlier this month. They brought joy to my heart.
