Unfortunately, I read Beyond Paisley’s post on this theme before starting on mine, and now I’m jealous that she thought to include Otis Redding’s Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay, because that song epitomizes the theme. I lost a competition I hadn’t even entered yet! 🙂
OK, down to business. This week, Ailsa over at Where’s my Backpack has challenged her fellow bloggers to post photos that show the theme “peaceful.” Since the weather outside today is anything but peaceful, I dug through the archives (and just doing that provides some measure of peace). These are the images I think fit the theme this week.
There were a lot of people wandering around the Tidal Basin during the Cherry Blossom Festival, but the atmosphere was peaceful, nonetheless.
Time to have a nap under a tree.
Waiting … waiting for the sun to come up and take the fog up with it, on Walden Pond.
Happy May Day, one and all. It’s a beautiful, sunny spring day in Boston. Now, if we could only convince the building supervisors at work to turn off the air conditioner for a few more weeks. I can tell you, speaking from experience, that it’s very difficult to type while wearing gloves. The small space heater is helping a little, though.
OK, back to the topic at hand, April showers bringing May’s flowers. Of course, these flowers were shot in April, but I won’t tell anyone if you don’t.
Enjoy it while you can. Before you know it, we’ll all be complaining about the heat. So go take a walk and admire the flowers!
Color – so many options! This week’s photo challenge is to share a picture which puts color center-stage. “A” picture. So naive, these Word Press bloggers. As if I could ever limit myself to a single picture.
Cherry blossom buds, waiting, waiting …
To explode in glorious pinks, made even brighter by the early morning sun.
Magnolia blossoms, reaching for the blue sky.
Brightly colored origami at the Quincy Lunar New Year celebration.
Chrysanthemum, enjoying the fall sun.
A weed. I don’t know what sort of weed, just that it was beautiful, with its reds and yellows magnified by the afternoon sun.
That’s my take on the theme for the week. I’d love to see yours, as well.
