This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is “The Hue of You” and the goal is to show your personality through a photo or series of photos. I thought the best approach was to make a giant collage of all the things that brighten my life. Family Nature Travel Advocacy To see more entries to this challenge, click here.
“Nature uses only the longest threads to weave her patterns, so that each small piece of her fabric reveals the organization of the entire tapestry”. - Richard P. Feynman This week’s photo challenge is to put together a collage of photos focusing on the different lines and patterns we see around us. I love taking pictures and try to experiment as often as I can while I’m traveling or at home on a photo walk here in Minneapolis.
“In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.” – Albert Camus One of the great rewards of living in Minnesota is our amazing summers. Once old man winter decides to leave, we are blessed with perhaps the most postcard picture perfect weather imaginable. I guess after surviving six brutally cold, long months of winter you can say it is a gift and a ploy to keep us living here in the land […]

Throughout my travels, I’ve always marveled at the beauty, innocence and hopeful smiles of children. I believe strongly that children are our future. What has amazed me so much is how similar children are despite their unimaginable differences in culture, economic resources and lifestyles. At the end of the day, all children want is to be loved. All children want to have enough food on the table, a roof over their head and books to read. All children want to […]
This week’s photo challenge happens to be a favorite of mine: Pattern. I adore the patterns of the brilliant rusty orange-colored tiled rooftop found in homes throughout the world. Two places in particular have my favorite styles: Southern France and Antigua, Guatemala. Here is a sample of some of the dynamic patterned rooftops I’ve captured throughout my travels. Antigua, Guatemala

This week’s photo challenge is to capture a photo or set of photos which are taken from above an object. Just coming back from France, I could hardly resist these photos I took looking over some of the beautiful, delightful things I saw in the world of haute cuisine and fresh produce stands. Beware….these photos are certain to make you hungry!
This week’s photo challenge, Culture, is quite fitting since I literally just got off the plane from Paris which is perhaps the culture capital of the world. Still jet-lagged and behind, I had a chance to upload my photos from my trip to France and have an astounding number to sort through: 1,400 taken in nine days flat! (I broke my record!). I only went through the first set of photos this morning but feel they portray an excellent look […]

“Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are” – Bertolt Brecht This time last year, we were basking in the sunshine embracing the gorgeous beauty, energy and rejuvination that springtime brings to Minnesotans. On this day last year, spring was in full force with leaves bursting anew in a brilliant tapestry of verdant, virgin green. The telltale signs of spring – brightly colored tulips, deep purple pasque flowers and singing birds- were everywhere. […]
