Weekly Photo Challenge: Habit (Mine) 5

This week, Michelle W. requests that you show us something that’s a HABIT. If could be your daily walk to the bus stop, or your daily paper lying on the doorstep. Maybe it’s the guy behind the counter at the deli you always visit for lunch, the stuffed bunny your child must have at bedtime, or the view from your desk as you sit down to blog.

Capture a moment both constant and fleeting. We look forward to the glimpses into your everyday. Don’t forget to link your post to the weekly photo challenge and to click on the link to see what others are posting.

A rooster crows only when it sees the light. Put him in the dark and he’ll never crow. I have seen the light and I’m crowing. – Muhammad Ali.

Today I’m grateful for my camera, for my walking buddy, for the rooster, and for light.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Eerie Vibes When Life Is Cut Short 9

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You (Actually Me) 4

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.

 

The colors drew me in when I saw this on a morning walk.

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.
