A Poppy That Survived The Beat Down

This photograph is not so great from a photographic perspective. Why I took it, is that after all the very heavy rains this past week all the poppy’s but one were beaten down to the flower bed. One survived and stood tall. I snapped a quick shot…a the ‘glass is half full’ shot. My Aunt died this past February. She so loved her poppy plant.

A Glorious Trout: Olive & Red

You often see the photos of fish, the trophy fish. Impressive for sure. But some fish, less than trophy size, can momentarily make us gaze at their simple, yet  complex beauty. It is perfection when we can briefly glimpse all their beauty…a brief encounter. A trophy in a different way………………..

PHOTOGRAPHY: The Beautiful Efforts of Dmitrii Lezine

THE TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY OF DMITRII LEZINE

The Columbia River Gorge, the Women’s Forum Viewpoint and in the distance Crown Point. My backyard….less than a half hour from my driveway. Photo by Dmitrii Lezine.

“This blog is a labor of love. The photography hobby of mine is a labor of love. I try to post a new photo at least every other day, sometimes more, sometimes less. It requires a lot of time investment and unless I didn’t really liked to take photos and share them with everyone else, this blog would not be here.

So thanks for stopping by and taking a look at different places that I had a chance to visit. Every photo was taken because I thought it was cool and unique in its own way. You can look at different categories on the right side of the blog, pick your destination and see what I saw. I get a chance to travel only a few times per year, vacation is precious time, and I try to pick places where I have not been before or visit the same places during different season.”

Every Day in May: Shoreline…The Vantage Point

EVERY DAY IN MAY CHALLENGE TOPICS DAY BY DAY

GALVESTON, TEXAS ‘SHORELINE’

The ‘Shoreline’, the Sea Shore, the changing edge by the water…the water that rises and falls, scours, churns, smothers then recedes to reveal the new look….the new shoreline, like above (post hurricane).

But, the above shoreline is not as familiar to me as the river’s edge, the lake’s edge. These are the places I stand to assess the where, the if, the how….the maybe’s. The rocks, boulders, tall grass, the sand, the ice, the insects, the trees. Poison Oak, snakes, thistles, log jams, reeds and cat tails…all along the lapping water. Woody debris, twigs, mossy rocks, leaves collected in the trees and bushes at eye level from past freshets. The launch point, the take out. The shore lunch, the nap.

The shoreline…the ‘bank’. It is sometimes the place of comings and goings, where those pesky slips, trips and falls take place. I’d rather intentionally sit on my terms and smoke my briar or a fine cigar. Sometimes it is the best vantage point to study what is going on out there.

In this instance, I was at a perfect place. Close to the water’s edge, but sitting on a selcouth find….a bench.
