Fire in the Sky

My Grampy Miller used to say
Pink sky at night ‘sailors delight’
Pink sky in the morning ‘sailors heed warning’

It’s a crisp morning in the Capital city currently sitting at -11. The good news is that we are expecting sunshine and +4 and the morning sky looks incredible!

My youngest daughter and I just burst out into song singing Trooper “We’re here for a good time! ”

Sending them to school with a belly full of bacon and eggs and a smile.

My coffee is ready…it’s a good morning! !

Weekly Photo Challenge’-One Shot, two ways

One Shot, Two Ways. This week, photographer Jeff talked about his process of finding the best shot. Before taking a picture, he studies his scene — looking at a shot horizontally (as a landscape) and vertically (as a portrait). With this honed, critical eye, he decides what orientation works best for his photograph.For this challenge, capture two images — a horizontal and a vertical version — of the same scene or subject. There are no concrete “rules” here, but a) it should be evident that both shots are of the same place/location or person/thing, and b) your photographs should ideally have been taken during the same shoot — where’s the challenge if you’re just plucking out pictures of a particular location or person from your archives?

I chose my garden as the subject, in particul a whimsical pink poppy. Flowers are so delicate and beautiful and you can capture something totally different when viewing from different angles. I took a portrait shot and a landscape looking from above.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Foreshadow

Cut to the hot hot summer of 2012. We could see it coming in our rearview mirror: this bruise blooming, darkening the sky as it gained speed and intensity. It turned bright sunshine into strange green light as we raced down the highway in a bid to outrun a Canadian prairie thunderstorm.In a post created specifically for this challenge, post a photograph that evokes FORESHADOW to you.

Pink sky at night sailors delight, pink sky in morning sailors warning.

Light dancing with the night

Daily Prompt: Opposite Day

If you normally write non-fiction, post a photo. If you normally post images, write fiction. If you normally write fiction, write a poem. If you normally write poetry, draw a picture.(New) photographers, artists, poets: show us OPPOSITE.

This is a picture I took in Seattle in March. I love the way the lights dance with the pavement at nightfall,  it created something special.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Nostalgic

image

This photo was taken a couple of years ago at Commonwealth Stadium during Bon Jovi/ Kid Rock concert.  I surprised the kids with tickets the night of the event. Listening to the songs of my youth with my children singing along was so amazing.  I am nostalgic for all their firsts and how excited they were when we first moved to the city.
