“Everybody is wrong about everything, just about all the time.” – Chuck Klosterman
“I am not one of those who in expressing opinions confine themselves to facts.” – Mark Twain

I am always extremely impressed with those definitive people who can say with confidence on January 1st that: “this was my best/favorite work of the past year.”

I seem to always feel: “Well, yes, that is true today but how about next month? Or next week? Or tomorrow? I will have changed by then. So, I expect my opinion will as well.”

Pretty wishy-washy, I guess.

Anyhow, a few of my favorite images made in 2016 from my project “Trans_Lucent”  as of 1/3/17 at 9:00 am…

Here are my three previous efforts: The BeginingQue sera seraBrooklyn.

If you want to view every response to the challenge, they are Here.

Travel theme: Summer

I am not a joiner and I don’t do “one-off” challenges but I am also a mass of contradictions and this particular challenge which Vlad over at Wind Against Current and Reb over at ColderWeather suggested in their blogs intrigued me.  It is being run by Ailsa of Where’s my backpack? and the theme is – well, see the title of this post.  I have no idea if these photos challenges are supposed to be limited to one picture or if you can use several but since summer means more than one thing to me…
