Sunday mornings driving around town has become mutually beneficial to both myself and my son – he gets in his driving practice whilst I get to play photographer. There’s so much more to see when you’re not the driver!
The Daily Post Photo Challenge this week is… Lines.
Despite what might be happening outside my window right now, the birds and blooms are telling me the earth is awakening. It’s spring time!
Awakening is the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week.
I’d Rather Be… grateful for each day lived, a life filled with beautiful sights, smells and experiences…
then regretting what has been or might have been, or even what should be!
The upside of not being able to sleep last week (I’ve yet to find the upside of not being able to sleep this week) was that I was able to follow the full moon from its high point in the sky until it finally dipped behind the trees.
As with the sun setting each night allows one to rewrite the next day, for me each full moon is a reminder to reflect on how the last few weeks were, and what the coming weeks will be. Well, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Story is The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for this week.
Right after a snowfall where we first lived in Canada was always so beautiful. Along with this snowfall would always come a glorious calming silence. Well, there would be silence for a little while at least.
Following a snowfall the air would be filled with the awful scrapping sound of metal on concrete, intertwined with the sound of machines, as we all cleared our driveways before the next snowfall, ugh!
Silence is this week’s Photo Challenge from The Daily Post.
This very weathered wall in Tallinn, Estonia intrigued me immensely with its varying degrees of texture. At first glance this wall highlights years of neglect – yet at the same time it highlights what was once years of care.
Weathered is this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post.
This young lad had us smiling out loud when he stopped by Christmas morning to complete our picture of a white, albeit a very light white, Christmas complete with (rein)deer. Bless him, the lone antler lad.
Growth is this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge.
No matter what has transpired, or unfortunately hasn’t transpired during the day, being able to look out the window to witness Mother’s Nature’s closing act on the day brings about a calmness, a serenity like no other for me.
Evenings like this provide a wonderful reminder that no matter how wonderful or how frustrating today was, it was but just one day. Tomorrow the sun will rise again bringing with it another day of new beginnings.
Serene is The Daily Post Weekly Challenge for this week!
Having just completed the final inspection on what has become our home here, the children and I treated ourselves to lunch at the marina. Whilst waiting for our lunch we saw this beautiful rainbow just outside the window.
Little did we realize, this was a peek into our future. Our future of living on the harbour – rainbows over the islands, fishing boats coming and going, and there always something to see!
PEEK is the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for this week.
Even now, this image of abstract artwork on one of our visits to Seyðisfjörður, East Iceland still intrigues me. It’s almost as if one piece of this iron is keeping the mountain at bay whilst another piece is stretching to protect the church from it.
This small township was an hour’s drive from our home in Reyðarfjörður. It was one of those drives that always felt as if it was taking longer then it was due to the fact you had to drive down the steepest, twisty road into it.
This image felt ideal for the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week of… Scale. Like everything in life, it’s where you stand that creates “your” perspective of what’s around you.
