Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #198: Light and Shadow

I love photographing shadows.  Sometimes they are more photogenic than the subject!  Just now, in fact, I happened to look over the railing on the second floor of our house, and this is what I saw. Just west of our houses there is a green-space with lots of big cedar trees.  The shadow in this …

Sunday Stills Monthly Color Challenge: #Teal or #Aqua

As usual, my favorite example of a natural Teal coloring is Diablo Lake in the North Cascades.  There is a beautiful overlook mini-park just east of the town of Newhalem, and Hubby and I go there a couple of times every year.  The unusual color of the water is caused by glacial runoff, and the …

Road Trip Day 3, 3 states

We started out in Idaho, and visited a site my husband was interested in, not far from Twin Falls where we stayed. This particular site represents a sordid part of America’s history, when people of a particular national origin were confined in concentration camps, because of their ancestry. The place was Minidoka, a “relocation camp” …
