Weekly Photo Challenge: FOCUS

I present my photo of the week “Focus” with this pic. The woman in the foreground (who happens to be my daughter) draws the eye to view her, but then the eye is drawn to the young man in the red hat (my grandson), and ultimately further out where two persons are strolling along the shoreline.

This was taken with my Motorola Droid Maxx phone near Long Beach, WA.

This is one of my absolutely favorite photos, taken this way quite accidentally I might add, and I just love the peaceful scene. I hope you do too!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity

In the outdoors animals tend to naturally know how to relax without any prompting. I’ve presented two photos to help justify my previous statement!
In the first photo Mallard duck mates share in a time of quiet solitude as they meander through the lake’s edge and in the second photo a cat relaxes – what cats do best! – on the roof top as she soaks up the warmth of the sun in her glossy black coat.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

Las Vegas at night - July 4th celebration
Las Vegas at night – July 4th celebration

Fireworks were bursting in air last July 4th courtesy of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. I tried to capture the feel of the moment with my little Nokia cell phone camera.
We got the real firework show afterwards. It started to rain, thunder and lightning soon after the man-made show was over.
I thought the first show was nice, but the second one was best!
