The Road Taken

In my travels there have been many, many roads taken – probably more taken than passed over…well, maybe… Nevertheless, one that came to mind is the highway 1 on the coast of California. I took it from Jenner up to Fort Ross one foggy Saturday and just fell in love with it. I wrote a post of the experience and shared one aspect of the trip with y’all. But for the Weekly Photo Challenge The Road Taken I wanted to share a couple of new pics for a different perspective of the road taken that day – highway 1. Enjoy!

Rule of Thirds Using Nature

Wikipedia defines rule of thirds as:

an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally spaced horizontal lines and two equally spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections.

So as part of the WordPress Daily Challenge of Rule of Thirds here are two photos, nature oriented, for the challenge:

Express Yourself!

Expressions – they speak volumes, as they say! I always love that not only do we as humans have expressions but so do our furry companions! And with kiddos this is even more true as they still feel the freedom to express themselves!

Hope you enjoy and maybe chuckle a little!

Unexpected: Weekly Photo Challenge

The challenge Unexpected is a fun one for me. I take a lot of photos and sometimes after downloading them I find things that I didn’t know that I had taken a photo of. Or I am looking a little more closely at the “things” around me and find unexpected objects or perspectives.

Habit: Weekly Photo Challenge

Time for the Weekly Photo Challenge and this week is Habit! At first it was hard to think of what my habits are and wondered if I even had photos! But scrolling back thru my photos I found a couple that show one of my daily habits – my hangout with the two dogs and two cats. Now when I’ve been gone from home they are especially fond of wanting to be right next to me or in my lap and often its a race to see who can get there first!
