BeckyB’s July Square Challenge has begun! Well, it started yesterday, so I am a day late…
The theme this month is Trees.
I enjoy photographing trees in all their sizes, shapes and seasons. During a recent walk around a nearby neighborhood I looked up and noticed a tree branch…reaching out. Or something. A cloud also caught my eye. I do tend to see things that aren’t intentional. One might call that an overactive imagination. Or I am easily entertained. No matter.
Do you see what I see?
The tree. The cloud.
A walk on the beach…trek back to the mostly empty parking lot…looked up…what did I see?
A stark contrast to the calm skies I witnessed above the ocean a few minutes earlier.
This expands a bit on Thursday’s post…chronicling my first flight since February 2020. The plane took off from Logan Airport under drizzly cloudy skies. Not a very positive vibe.
However, it wasn’t too long before this view emerged…
That blue sky…and what looked like delicious whipped cream (I can’t help it, food comes to mind)…a welcome sight!
During one of my treasured walks in the woods last November, the darkness of night began early…as it does that time of year. It crept up on me as I searched for bits of leaves, vines and milkweed pods and whatever else was hanging on despite the cold. Many deserved a close up as the light provided center stage opportunity. Click. Click. Click.
Hold still. The light is perfect. Thank you!
Then the sun began its predictable disappearing act…leaving a bit of brightness in the sky long enough to be captured. I appreciated the opportunity…as a few minutes later it was gone. And I was on my way back home.
It’s been one of those weeks. You know, one you’d like to forget…pretend it’s a dream.
However…today brought with it the promise of longer days with the beginning of daylight savings time where I live. I know the days aren’t really longer, but the hours of daylight will begin to stretch well past dinnertime. I’ll take more light however I can get it.
The sun kept teasing me this morning as I sat at my computer. It would shine through my window…and then disappear…shining…disappearing. It got me out of my chair. I stepped outside and was greeted by a cloud parade playing hide and seek. Or was it the sun playing hide and seek? I watched and waited and clicked.
In capturing the action – and probably staring into the sun too long – I began noticing the clouds making faces. Or something. Whatever was going on, I got it.
