    Photo Challenge: Converge

    For the latest Daily Post Photo Challenge, I decided to interpret Converge as a meeting of opposites. Christmas time is my favorite and Christmas decorations are at the top of my list of reasons why. I absolutely adore Christmas lights, both inside and outside the house. They just make me happy! This year I strung up some lights around the fireplace in my house. Christmas lights, especially these small white lights give me the feeling of light and happy. They’re pretty and ethereal-like. The fireplace, which is made of brick, is a place of heat, structure, sturdiness. They are quite opposite, but when put together or when they converge they go together really nicely.…

    Photo Challenge: Angular

    For the latest photo challenge from The Daily Post, I really couldn’t think of anything good. The challenge is “Angular”  and I had no ideas! So the best I could come up with were these stairs in my house. We have been doing some remodeling and these are our new stairs. They used to be carpeted and wood color bannister and posts. Now the posts are white, the bannisters are stained mahogany and the stairs are oak with a mahogany stain as well. It’s not the most creative interpretation of angular, but I like showing off the new stairs and the perpendicular lines of the posts meeting the steps is a nice view.

    Photo Challenge: Minimalist

    Happy Friday! Even though the week went by pretty quickly and I, thankfully, was not drowning in work for the first week in a while, I still felt like it was an exhausting week. Yesterday was a particularly tiring day, which I will actually be posting about soon! Ok, so actually I’m writing this on Thursday night and scheduling this to be posted on Friday morning – I’m tired, cold and it’s flurry-ing outside! So I’m going to keep this short and sweet, which actually works because the past week’s photo challenge was Minimalist. Minimalist can be hard sometimes, because I feel like what usually captures my attention to take a picture…

    Photo Challenge: Cover Art

    Happy Photo Challenge Friday! Also, Happy Halloween! A Halloween post will be coming up later tonight, but in the meantime I’m continuing with my Friday photo challenge routine. This past week Daily Post posed the challenge of coming up with Cover Art. As usual, it’s open to interpretation. I decided to recycle a picture from this summer that I feel would be representative of my life. This was taken in Hawaii back in August, the day after a hurricane. I feel like this would be a great cover art piece for my life because I’m literally looking out at the unknown. It could be a storm brewing or the clouds…

    Photo Challenge: Refraction

    Today I bring to you my response to this past week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post – Refraction.  I spent a little bit of time thinking of what pictures I already had that could fit into this category. I’m sure I have quite a few ranging from city lights to the sun hitting the ocean, but unless you have one picture you love it can be hard to randomly remember every picture you’ve ever taken. Originally, I thought about posting a picture I have of some gorgeous and colorful lamps from the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. I went there a few years ago. I even found a good shot I…
