12-26-14 Weekly Photo Challenge

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Warmth.”

So many ways to go with this one but, earlier today Dominica popped into my head and then when I saw warmth this only seemed natural:

The Valley of Desolation:

The Valley Of Desolation – Dominica

which leads to:

Boiling Lake – Dominica

Boiling Lake.

That is warmth for me…

12-23-14 Travel Challenge Weekly Theme Golden Yellow (2)

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Yellow.”

and the Travel Theme golden.

And my previous attempt: here

There is this…Now, I have to admit I can not, for the life of me remember what prompted this picture. I have no memory what idea I was playing with…

RSJohnson_120609_115-0115

I look at this and think, maybe I was playing with still life? or color palate? I doubt food photography but that is what brought it to mind as we are having our annual Christmas Eve party tomorrow night and the cooking and setting up has begun/is beginning.

‘Tis a mystery.

12-14-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle

 The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Twinkle.”

We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.
Marilyn Monroe

In response to this week’s challenge, I thought the back cover was appropriate.

Nothing twinkles like sunlight hitting petroleum floating on water!

12-1-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge – Cape Edition

“And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch it, we are going back from whence we came. “

— John F. Kennedy

I converged with the Atlantic today.

11-14-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Achievement

Achievement –

When I think about achievements I try to avoid sports. Ripken and The Iron Horse, Hank and The Babe, Roger Bannister, Martina and Chris, Serena, Russell and Chamberlain, Magic and Bird, Michael, etc. all did remarkable things but others have achieved so much more.

Salk, Sabin, Newton, Einstein, Ptomely, Pythagoras, and so many more whose names I don’t know.

However, for me, the most remarkable achievement in my lifetime is one we, the USA, threw away, as we became the nasty, cramped, and fearful country we are today. We came, we saw, we ran home and hid.

I don’t get it and never will.
