A peacock, a male peafowl, which has very long tail feathers

that have eyelike markings

and that can be erected and expanded in display like a fan.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Close-Up Solitary Lime

This week Brie Anne Demkiw asks us to photograph with a Macro eye.

Macro photography allows us to see the world in a new light.

Some of the best macro subjects may appear mundane at first

— things you’d normally pass by without giving a second glance —

but get just a little closer and there’s often a hidden beauty to be discovered.

She’s asked us to get up close and personal with your subject

— whether it’s the pollen on a newly bloomed flower, rust on an old fence, or water droplets left by a storm —

and capture those tiny, fascinating details that might go unnoticed.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Half and Half – Los Cabos

Cabos Arches.web

The Arch

El Arco and the Arch refer to the famous arch rock formation

that juts out of the ocean where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean

in Los Cabos, Mexico.

We visited and toured these in May, 2015.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Half and Half

to join click badge

This week – Ben Hubberman – share an image that has two clear halves,

literally or figuratively. You could focus on composition, like me,

and take a photo with an explicit dividing line (either vertical, horizontal, or diagonal).

Or take the theme in other directions: zoom in on a pair of objects

that together form a whole. Show two people whose

demeanor or personality complement each other.

Or bring into balance two opposing visual elements — light and dark,

color and its absence, sharp focus juxtaposed with blurriness.

The Ocean

The ocean has its silent caves                                                                                                                                                       Deep, quiet and alone;
Though there be fury on the waves,
Beneath them there is none.
The awful spirits of the deep
Hold their communion there;
And there are those for whom we weep,
The young, the bright, the fair.

Calmly the wearied seamen rest
Beneath their own blue sea.
The ocean solitudes are blest,
For there is purity.
The earth has guilt, the earth has care,
Unquiet are its graves;
But peaceful sleep is ever there,
Beneath the dark blue waves.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Impressionistic is a literary or artistic style that seeks to capture

a feeling or experience rather than to achieve accurate depiction.

The French painter Claud Monet Monet, Claude |mōˈnā| (1840–1926)

was a founding member of the impressionists movement.

His painting ‘Impression: Sunrise’ -1872 – gave the movement its name.

Jude would like to see bench photos for the month of June with some post-processing

– it can be subtle or bold as long as it includes a bench or even part of a bench!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Off Season

This week, Krista, has challenged us to show what off-season means to you. It could be the shuttered ice-cream stand in the Southern Hemisphere where winter is drawing near. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere it might your snowmobile peeking out from beneath its tarp, or your Christmas decorations arranged neatly in the attic. Feel free to interpret this theme loosely — consider objects at rest and unmoved, places that are stagnant or abandoned.

Odd Ball Challenge – For You My Love

Tree Stump Heart.web        For You My Love                                   2015©photography by Isadora

Mother Nature is very creative. This heart was carved naturally into this tree stump.

Cee says, “Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.

We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.

There is never a theme to this challenge, so what is an odd ball is all up to discover and photograph.

I hope that you have a lot of fun!”
