WPC: Unusual POV or My FoR


Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV from The Daily Post

I like odd angles and I definitely have an unusual point of view on most things.  I like eccentric and odd things when it comes to people, places and things.  Sometimes this attribute helps me adapt to new situations and sometimes it causes me to run away from certain “normal” things.  I’m pretty sure this will be my last post in the U.S. so it was a perfect theme for saying good-bye to the area.  The following are photos from Philly, DC and Maryland.  Some of the photos I really enjoyed more because after I took them I struggled with whether they were real or not.  Some of them looked so unreal that I actually increased the distortion with a quick and subtle edit.  I hope you enjoy.

So many I liked, Check them out

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting


“We are food for worms, lads,” announces John Keating, the unorthodox English teacher played by Robin Williams in the 1989 film Dead Poets Society. “Believe it or not,” he tells his students, “each and every one of us in this room is one day going to stop breathing, turn cold, and die.” –  Poets.org 

So here I am..I have been sitting for nearly 2 days..sniffling, coughing..wondering if I will live …missing my family and the friends who just finished visiting me in May..a spring/summer cold in June.  In JUNE!!!!   Loads of language homework in front of me I can’t seem to focus on..alone.. alone..all alone..no one to baby me back to health…  feeling a little sorry for myself.  I mean, why wouldn’t I..

POOOORRRRR MEEEE!!!

Then.. I stumble across the Daily Post’s Challenge:  Fleeting.

What an inspirational set of photos and pieces of writing.  An hour disappears while I peruse other’s entries and I find myself inspired to submit a few of my own very recent fleeting moments.  A few times with friends over the past few months.  Happy fleeting moments that you can so easily forget about or take for granted.  I have a great life and here’s to enjoying some of the most recent moments that came and went quicker than I could have imagined.

I hope you enjoy.

To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy. – Henri Cartier-Bresson

 

SUNDAY POST : Attraction


Jakesprinter’s May 5, Sunday posting Attraction brought some awesome submissions from others and was also a great theme for me to catch up on some activities that I have been participating in with my guests and between my studies.  I hope you enjoy visiting these images and might just be inspired to come check out the DC area.

So from sailboat rides to wine festivals…capital buildings to Naval Academies.. Navy memorials to police memorials…historical re-enactments to inspirational sayings and statutes.. welcome to my neighborhood.
