This week’s photo challenge is ‘one’ to focus on one element. The rainbow stretching across the grey clouds is the one focus in this photo.

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns

This week’s photo challenge focuses on lines and patterns. I love to photograph geometric shapes and patterns that we see everyday. Here are some random photographs I took of walkways, sidewalks, and paths we step across each day but may not notice the details. The simple lines create beauty.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

This week’s photo challenge theme is ‘inside’. I decided the inside subject would be myself. I attended my first Seattle Mariner‘s baseball game this summer. (I think they won because I was there.) I took a photo sitting inside the giant mitt outside the stadium. Another photo shows me inside a llama. Why? I went to a ‘knit and pitch’ event at the game. There was yarn and other supplies to buy. I bought nothing knitting related, instead just tons of baseball food that got me a little sick. I also included photos inside the stadium.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

I realize I’m a week late for this photo challenge, but I didn’t have time to post it. Here are some photos of my dog, George, enjoying the beach at Kalaloch in Washington. Normally, he doesn’t like water but he kept walking out to play in the waves.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Golden Hour

I know this was last week’s challenge, but I’ve been busy and couldn’t resist showing this beautiful ‘golden hour’. I took the photo along Washington State’s ocean coast during the 4th of July weekend.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

I love to photograph designs, shapes, and patterns  so I’m excited about this week’s photo challenge: pattern. I decided to focus upon daily aspects that we may not notice. Everyone has seen the fancy designs and patterns that surround trees, lamp posts, or similar objects. I also included a shadow pattern of a staircase rail.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture#2

Here’s a second inspiration for the weekly photo challenge culture. I saw this woman with her dog dressed in hot pink and thought it looked cute and humorous at the same time. She’s stylish and well dressed ready to go anywhere with her chic dog. I want to know more about this woman and where she’s taking her dog. It’s amazing how people relate to their pets in our culture. In this case the dog is more of an accessory.
