Cover Art

For this week’s Word Press Photo Challenge, stimulate your creative process and imagine which of your images you would like to see gracing the cover of a book, an album, or a magazine. If your cover art is for a book, is the book fiction or non-fiction?

Have fun checking out how many places you have visited in Canada!

Dreamy

Dreamy is this week’s photo challenge from word press: we’d like to see an image that looks dreamy to you.

We were traveling on a cruise ship in 2009 from Aswan towards Luxor temple on the river Nile in Egypt. In the early morning hours, when I opened the drapes, I was pleasantly surprised by a scenery that looked dreamy to me.

Signs

Signs can direct us where to go, but they’re also pieces of art, which reveal much about the time period and culture in which they were made.

This sign on a delivery semi truck got my attention.

A closer look revealed that this sign is made to resemble  the outside of a pizza box. What a great way of letting your clients know how their spinach is treated.

Thanks for stopping by. Have  a nice weekend!

Nighttime

I took these pictures on September 9th 2014. The Sept. 9 super moon was the last to complete the trio of super moons that began in July. The biggest and brightest of the trio was the one that occurred Aug. 10.

I used my neighbor's tree as a reference to capture the rising moon in the eastern sky.

 It is by far the biggest and brightest object in the night sky however the moon is not an easy subject to photograph.

Supermoons are lunar phenomena where the moon reaches a point in its orbit where it is closest to the Earth. At this point, the moon will appear to be bigger and brighter.

Nighttime:  It’s trickier to take pictures at night, but the rewards are well worth it.

Explore. Dream. Discover: Adventure

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Big or small, enjoy your adventures this weekend!

 

Dialogue

P1070608This sculpture is “Minimal response III 1999 painted steel” by Ed Benavente at the Wandell Sculpture garden in Meadowbrook Park, Urbana, Illinois. The sculpture is also known as, “Hammer heads”.

I chose this photo for the weekly challenge “Dialogue”. Dialogue is an engaging conversational exchange.

Whenever I visit the park and look at this sculpture, I always wonder what kind of dialogue the hammer heads are having. Can you take a guess? I would love to hear from you in the comments below.

Have a good rest of the weekend!
