I enjoy photo challenges.  They make you think about what you’ve seen and how, without thinking, you may have captured images that interpret the challenge.

Iceland/waterfallSPRAY….immediately I thought of waterfalls and geysers in Iceland.

That waterfalls and geysers are there, powerful in their beauty, is another of those miracles that sets my heart racing.


A Word a Week Photo Challenge: Spray

Shadow Play

WordPress bloggers have been issued a challenge to post a selfie.  Selfie, where did that word come from and when did it become such a much used one in our vocabulary?  There’s no question about what it means because everywhere you go, you see people, like on the opening ceremony for the Olympics, snapping their own photo with their phones.   Generally, when I see someone doing that I offer to take the picture for them because my experience with selfies is that they aren’t very flattering.  Arms just aren’t long enough to take a self portrait!
