Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue with the Circle of Life


The Weekly Photo Challenge is Dialogue.

The nourishing rains have finally begun in Nicaragua, which reminds me that life is a full circle sustaining and feeding us all.

We

A Word a Week Photograph Challenge: Rust


“Iron can only be destroyed by rust, and rust is a slow process which is caused by the hydrogen ion from water in the environment. Coat yourself against negative thoughts and be careful what you feed your mind because your mind is your greatest asset, make sure you are not using it against yourself.”
― Uzoma Nnadi

                                          Summer rains rust iron
                                        Jamaica petals fall gently
                                           spreading  afterglow

My Story in Quotes: The Fork in the Road


“There are ultimately two choices in life: to fight it or to embrace it. If you fight it you will lose – if you embrace it you become one with it and you’ll be lived.”
― Rasheed Ogunlaru

 

“Alice came to a fork in the road. ‘Which road do I take?’ she asked.
‘Where do you want to go?’ responded the Cheshire Cat.
‘I don’t know,’ Alice answered.
‘Then,’ said the Cat, ‘it doesn’t matter.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture


The Weekly Photo Challenge is Texture.

I am inspired by anything beautiful. Sometime it’s a pair of eyes or flowing gorgeous hair, other times it’s the sky or a sunset. I’ve been inspired by supple skin or the texture of a soft shirt. ~Nadine Velazquez

 
I am inspired by the texture of an ancient tortoise.

and his rough scales.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Zig Zag


The Weekly Photo Challenge is Zig Zag.

Unexpected turns zig zagging through the city of Quito, Ecuador led us to a unique and surprising basilica. Also known as “La Basilica,” “Catedral Consagración de Jesús” or “The Basílica de San Juan,” it is the largest of the neo-gothic basilicas in the Americas.

Still unfinished, the residents of Quito believe that the day the basilica is completed, the world will end. The urban apocalyptic legend exemplifies the intrigue of this church, which comes from its neo-gothic architectural style and art display.

Zig zagging and meandering around every crevice and corner, armadillos, turtles, dragons, birds, iguanas, monkeys, and caymans, illustrate in a not so humble way, this apocalyptic legend.

Do these stone monkeys’ irregular stances seem to invite welcome in the passerby or ward off evil?
