Weekly Photo Challenge-Reflection

Weekly Photo Challenge – Reflections of City Life

It was a beautiful twilight in Denver.

Lights above.  Lights below.  Reflections of light and  life on the pavement everywhere – from the trees to the lanterns to the people walking by.

All a tapestry of life in a big city full of “reflections.”

(Click on the picture to enlarge it and enjoy the subtleties of the reflections.)

Weekly Photo Challenge-Perspective

Weekly Photo Challenge – Perspective

Marcus Aurelius said:  “Everything we hear is an opinion,  not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.”

It’s sometimes hard to remember this when we see our world, and most of all, ourselves,  through rose-colored glasses.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Abandoned

“Art is never finished, only abandoned.” 
Leonardo da Vinci

Last fall, I took this picture of a lonely leaf, covered in water, during Colorado’s 500-year flood.

While the water doesn’t show up in this picture,  “The Leaf”  lay alone, the last witness to the lovely green garment that had adorned a nearby tree before the unprecedented rains and hail stripped it bare.

Weekly Photo Challenge – 3’s

Lilies and a story of 3’s.

For me this Weekly Photo Challenge of 3’s was more about editing the pictures I’ve taken than taking more.

While learning to crop, sharpen, and highlight, my intention was to focus on the story I want to tell with these pictures.  In the end, I’m not sure these pictures actually tell a story at all, unless it’s to say “Bloom where you’re planted!”

While a whole bouquet of lilies is gorgeous (in my opinion), it is no prettier than one single bloom.  When it comes right down to it, a bouquet of flowers is simply a bunch of single blooms all together in one holder.

So it is with people.  We each stand alone beautifully on this planet of ours – yet joined with others in a common cause, we’re not only beautiful, we’re powerful!

So, what did I learn from this challenge?  To pick my “blooms” (friends) carefully!
