The WordPress Photo Challenge provides the interesting theme of I’d Rather Be…, which is a rather surprising one!
What would I rather be doing, when I have all that I need in my life… It’s almost an expression of never being satisfied with what we have. Of course, one could find oneself in a predicament or bad situation, but barring that, acceptance of one’s current condition is a preferred way to achieve a semblance of inner peace.
Given that thought, there’s probably not much that I’d rather do than admire the wonderful structures produced by Nature…
Capturing leaves that are backlit provides for interesting images, as both light and texture come into play…
What are some of your favorite pastimes that you’d rather not give up?
The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge provides the theme of Weathered.
Most likely there will be several entries for this theme, but one sprang to mind immediately.
During my visit to the wonderful, photogenic country of Iceland, I set my base just outside the second largest city of Akureyri; Akureyri is very much an industrious town with lots of practical appeal. From there I explored the region, which led me to the Herring Era Museum in the picturesque town of Siglufjörður.
Here I found something a little weathered…
This wonderful texture was on one of the ancillary buildings. The museum certainly gives a great sense of the time period of the herring boom, and bust, and is worth a visit!
In the second installment of this series, we’re going in another direction from last week’s ‘Around the House’ (did you get a chance to shoot something cool?). This week, my inspiration came from my favorite pair of blue jeans, as I realized that they were beyond repair. The reached the time in their life of being perfectly worn-in…
