WP Photo Challenge: Weight(less)

This weeks WP Photo Challenge is Weight(less).  I decided to do the weightless version for this post.

Clouds.  What is a cloud? A cloud is a visible mass of condensed water vapor floating in the atmosphere, typically high above the ground and are untouchable.

When I was a kid, and even sometimes now as an adult, I would look to the clouds to see what mystery shape it created.  My brothers and I would always challenge each other to see who could find the best shape.

Have you ever looked to the clouds to see what shape may be emerging?

And the fire was lit

Last night’s sunset was beautiful.  It looked as if it was on fire.

I drove around until I could find an unobstructed view of the sky. I finally had to just stop or I was going to miss it.

Have you seen the movie “Backdraft”? In the movie it showed how the fire was rolling on the ceiling.  This was my first thought when I saw this sky.

What are your thoughts?

Before the Storm

Today was another humid day and we knew that the rain was coming soon.  On my lunch break about 30 minute before the storm began I took some pictures of the sky.

The rain only lasted about 45 minutes and it reduced the humidity just a bit.

WP Photo Challenge: Serenity

Serenity means peace, calm and untroubled.

Being at the beach is where I am the most at peace.   Watching the waves and tide come in is so relaxing.  It just washes my troubles away by allowing me to put most of them into perspective.

My grandson Arai also brings me peace (when he is not driving Mom-mom crazy). LOL

Wordless Wednesday…

…..well just a few words.

After the snowy day we had on Tuesday and the freezing day we had today with 24 degree temperatures with a wind chill of 6 degrees this sky was very deceiving.

The sky makes it look like it was a warm sunny day.

Reflections

This photo was taken in July of 2011 at New Brooklyn Lake Park, I like it because the reflected sky is bluer then the actual sky.

WP Photo Challenge: Converge

For this weeks WP Photo Challenge: Converge,  I thought of many ways to show how things converge but nothing seemed to be “just right”.    Then I notice the night sky and it came to me.

Night sky converging on the sun.

When I took this picture I thought of the poem “Do not go gentle into that good night.  I first heard parts of this poem from the movie Dangerous Minds back in mid 90’s.  I do not know much about poetry, I just know what I like and I like what I believe to be the message in this poem….to keep fighting.

Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.

by Dylan Thomas
