With some initial, cautious steps it is time to regain a sense of balance in life. It has not been easy to find creative energy outside the structure provided by a rather busy work schedule, as much of my energy is derived from direct, human interaction.
This year will be the year of our grand re-opening, as we’ve learned to deal with one challenge after another (and still more right now), and I have to say that I am looking forward to getting some real travel back into my schedule. Plans and reservations have been made for both a photography journey to Iceland in August and a Rhine river cruise in September. Exciting prospects!
One of my welcome outings of last year, was a trip to visit a great friend of mine and our going out to explore some areas with photo opportunities. This particular spot was the beach at Harkness State Park in Connecticut, where these pieces of driftwood caught my attention on a rather cold December day. The line they presented was just very inviting!

Welcome to week 216 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! I’m catching up slowly and have started on last week’s round up; there were a lot of responses, which I will share with you later today.
As work on our bathroom just finished, I thought it might be appropriate to have that serve as inspiration for this week’s theme. My wife and I are both very happy with the end result and feel a sense of renewal and appreciation for what this shower brings us. The spacious walk-in and gentle rain shower renew every fiber of one’s body!
For this week, please share what brings renewal to you, whether it is the impending change of season or some other aspect in your life that brings a new sense of energy to you. I look forward to seeing what might renew each of you!
Here are two angles of the redone bathroom…
Imagine, if you will, that this space was a mid-1980s yellow tub with a yellow linoleum floor…it has been renewed and is transformed! Our design decision were influenced by our travels, looking for a bright space for the shower with lovely Ukrainian tile and a wood-like linoleum floor. The industrial element brought in by the door made for a perfect contrast to the organic components in the room. There are still some splashes of color to be added, but you get the idea!
The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:
Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
