Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction

Refraction:  the fact or phenomenon of light, radio waves, etc., being deflected in passing obliquely through the interface between one medium and another or through a medium of varying density.

The colorful array of lights from rows and rows of slot machines, refracting through a water feature in the middle of the room.

You have to play to win, so no, I didn’t win, but the people watching was fascinating!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Signs

Not only was I impressed by this clever sign, but the food in this little café did not disappoint me either, and was true to its word.

The atmosphere and the food were great!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Looking out through this cave casts a unique silhouette…is it a face, a map, or maybe the outline of a state?

I’ll let you decide.

Whatever you decide I know this to be true, the view is always the same….amazing!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

I’m continually amazed by the “texture” of clouds.  Here are just a couple of amazing formations that I was able to enjoy recently.

I love a clear blue sky…but clouds always bring some character with them.

You’ll find some pretty amazing photos there too!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag

The challenge for this week is to come up with a photo that is zigging and zagging.  Two very interesting words, two very interesting motions to portray in a photo.

However, I think I captured it!

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this beautiful butterfly in my backyard the other day, as it went zigzagging through the bushes.

Such a beautiful little creature…I’m so glad it came to visit!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Room

Now this is a room that I hope to never find myself in.
SD County Jail


These particular rooms can be found at the headquarters for the old San Diego Police Department.  There was a time when they were well occupied, now they are only used for display in the museum.

I understand and am well aware of the fact that there are newer “models”out there.

I plan on keeping my distance from those rooms as well. 🙂

So far…so good!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Split Second Story

This week’s challenge was to capture a moment, person, place or thing, that tells a story….

It only took a “split second” for this to happen…

And when it did, not only did the cup break, but my heart broke just a little too.

A special gift, from a special person.  My daughter.

Gone, in just a split second.
