Favorite 2019 Photos


Some favorite photography challenge photos from the past year-

And my personal favorites-

Happy New Year!


Welcome, September!

beach walk

I started the day with the best intentions. Ignoring the rain, I headed out to a local beach to take photos. Oh, did I mention the rain? It had stopped by the time I got there but any plans of taking beautiful photographs of the sunrise…..well, that wasn’t happening. (Rain. Clouds.)

before the fall

I was excited to explore and since it was early morning (and crappy weather), I didn’t encounter many people. As I walked down the pier (is this considered a pier?), I stepped down to the lower level on the left side to stay out of any shots that the folks down the stretch were taking. Please note the water that pooled into puddles, because I did NOT. Two steps later and my feet flew out from underneath me. I did not have a chance to save myself and seconds later I found myself flat on my back on the concrete in a puddle.

I casually got to my feet and straightened my hair and pulled my soaked hoodie down to cover my sand- coated, wet bottom. I turned and strolled back from where I came, secretly rubbing my hands on the front of my jeans to wipe them off. My back side was dripping from head to toe and as people would approach, I would stop and lean against the railing, angling my back to the water so they wouldn’t see what a mess I was.

friend on the beach

I made my way down the beach, feeling a new ache or pain with each step I took. I must have been a pretty pitiful sight because this feathered fellow kept glancing over his shoulder (do birds have shoulders?) at me as he strolled along.

My posts have been sporadic and my writing non-existent. This month is not off to the greatest start and while I struggled to stay positive, the best I could come up with is- at least I didn’t break anything or knock myself out when my head hit the ground. All I can say is bring it on, September!
