On this Independence Day weekend, let’s talk about Rights

What do you think about when someone mentions "rights"?  Is the first thing that crosses your mind something like "abortion rights", or "voting rights"?  Or is it something like "unalienable rights", which is a phrase from the Declaration of Independence?  What does "unalienable" even mean?  First of all, here are some definitions of "rights" from …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge 192: Earth

I have a bit of a problem with today's topic.  It sounds to me a bit like "earth worship".  I have always appreciated how God put us on the most beautiful planet known in the Universe.  I appreciate how wonderful our planet is, and the fact that we humans are at the top of the …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #174: Shapes and Designs

This week, I want to start with a design in Nature that is ubiquitous, among things animate and inanimate.    When the Original Designer finds a scheme that is simple, elegant, and effective, He tends to employ that design across species and materials.  That Original Design is "branching".  This is the scheme used in the …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #153: Wonderful World (in two posts)

I never take our wonderful world for granted.  Wherever I go, I pay close attention to my surroundings, on my own level, and above and below me.  That is why, today, I am linking to another of my own posts, here at Calling-All-RushBabes.  Check out "I've looked at clouds from both sides now", below.  Just …

Lens-artists Photo Challenge #132-Striped and Checked

The Stripes and Checks in my suburban backyard are a bit smaller and less-exotic than Tina's zebras; but they are also less dangerous, and I can get closer to them to take their pictures.  And I sure don't have to go most of the way around the world to see them!  They show up now …

Sorry, I just could not let this go…Celebrating Perverts Month…

On my dashboard, the back-end of Calling-all-RushBabes today there is a link that says "Celebrate Pride Month with WordPress". Needless to say, I won't be clicking on that particular link! For some reason, I can't imagine anyone being proud of being a pervert (homosexual); essentially a mistake of nature.  And no, the homosexual lobby will …

Photo Challenge: Lines, by Man and by Nature

When I took this picture of the forward passenger deck of the Washington State Ferry Puyallup, the lines just drew me in.  Curved lines, straight lines, against the horizon line in the distance. And then there are the lines created in the sky by Nature-clouds which you would normally think of as curved line up …

Weathered, Creations of Man, and of Nature

This building was originally built in the twelfth century, in England.  The Abbey of Bury St. Edmunds.  Much of it has weathered away, with the help of the local people, who often used the fallen stones for new buildings.  But even the ruins are beautiful. This spectacular example of Nature's Creation, weathered, is Bryce Canyon …
