Wordless Wednesday: Come Outdoors with me

I understand from Terri's Post this week, that June is Outdoors Month.  The photos below were taken outdoors in places we have been.  I am frustrated that my bad knee prevents me from doing much walking these days (re-injured my repaired ACL in left knee last week).  In any case, I'm no athlete, and the …

Nautical Blue: Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge

This one was just too good to pass up.  Hubby and I have been on two cruises, where we saw many different aspects of the Pacific Ocean.  Nautical blue?  Of course! These are the Pacific Ocean in the vicinity of Hawaii.  I had never seen the ocean that blue before. These are from our trip …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #156: Black and White

Sometimes, you just have to see life in black and white.  Most of the time, there are myriad colors all around you, so you can get jaded.  I am in no way any kind of professional photographer, and these days most of the pictures I take are with my iPhone.  So the pictures for this …
