I plan to use this A to Z countdown to write new posts next year on these topics. Hope you all will join me.
For this week’s minimalist theme, photographer Jen Hooks challenges us to share a picture that is delusively simple. A simple, yet strongly illusive message on the front of this journal helped me make a quick choice to pick it up at the bookstore.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
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?
I hope you enjoy my cover art for my imaginary book, “A Travel Guide to Canada”. This cover photo reminds me of the song from the movie “Lion King”, “there is more to see, than can ever be seen and more to do than can ever be done”. Have fun checking out how many places you have visited in Canada!

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.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
I took this picture today in the western sky behind my home at 6:17AM, a few minutes before the eclipse was expected to reach its totality. A cool crisp morning and all I could think of saying was, “Good morning Moon!”

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!
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.
Super moons 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.
