Saturday Is Purple

Hearing Harmony is easy,

seeing it is a bit more of a challenge for me.

I want to see patterns and order whether I want to or not.

I’d like to think my brain takes leaps and bounds and doesn’t follow the rules

Other times I don’t mind it at all, like this morning when I was out walking my dog and saw this:

Daily Post Prompt: Harmony

Pioneer Square, Seattle WA

My favorite place to check out new art has some interesting pieces on display today-

okay, the gallery is an alley wall in Pioneer Square

but does that matter?

I have found that it does not- though it’s a challenge to shoot a picture around dumpsters and pallets.

But it was worth it.

Enjoy!

October In A Cemetery

Nostalgia

What kinds of experiences stir emotions for the past within you?

I found something strange at a cemetery

it was a bright day

a warm day

in October

not to long ago

I found

Echos

of lives

that used to be

haunting a day

a bright day

in October

Are they there

on the cold nights

on the dark nights

haunting the cemetery

in October?

Would you like to

come with me

walk with me

in that Cemetery

in

October?

The Long Walk

Quest

What are you in search of? Capture a quest with your camera.

 

What kind of Quest can one go on in the Suburbs ( in my case Mountlake Terrace, Washington ) What kind of inspiration can you find in a deliberate space?

Every weekend my dog  ( Hamish Macbeth ) and I go for power walks ( as opposed to our 45 minutes weekday walks, these walks are a couple of hours ) and I take a look at things I see all of the time- and then I really look at those things- sometimes I toss up an imaginary grid on a tree or yard art and I go over it space by space and then I photograph it.

The upshot is, I always find something new in things I see around me everyday and I find that quite inspiring.

All of these pictures with the exception of one were taken today- September 25, 2016

The house where I see these is a very nice, traditional suburban house.

On the surface, these bones don’t fit in with it’s non-western theme- nothing about  it says Southwest decor or Cowboy decor.

I guess I could ask the residents why these – or I could just wonder about it- I prefer leaving it to my imagination.

Adventure on a trail:

Sometimes I let Hamish wander ahead of me and if he finds something interesting, I’ll snoop around a bit.

Today I saw some trees from a great angle  and  loved the pictures I got.

Like I said earlier- I’ve seen these trees a million times, but I’ve never seen them quite this way.

Both shots were spooky.

I’ll be using them in the future.

These little weeds are all over the place- but I’ve only noticed their color. I had no idea they were thorny and that they ate stuff that they take root on.

Next is a shot of a cool fence on a corner by the Elementary School I went to.

It’s a busy intersection and over the years some jackass hops the curb and takes the fence out.

Destroyed ( again )

I was standing here and photographing the wrecked fence when I heard a car screech to a stop behind me in the intersection.

I was looking through the camera just then and thought what if that car had hit me and someone found this picture in my phone and realized that was the last thing I saw?

Part of me laughed.

The other part wanted to turn around and smack whoever was in that car.

So there it is, my quest for my weekly dose of inspiration.

You can go big or you can walk out your front door- but this weekend I learned with certainty- inspiration is right there, all you have to do is get out there and meet it.

Enlightened

Rare

For this week’s challenge, show us something that stands out from the everyday.

This challenge really challenged me- which is a good thing.

Ii spent a lot of time think about the things that stand out from the everyday and what I realize was that the world is full of things that are unique.

That’s when it occured to me, light is rare and unique- from the source to your eye to your brain light is rare, nobody will ever see it the way you do.

I won’t see it shining the same way you do reflected in a painting or against someone’s face or from the Sun or the stars.

So here they are, rare, beautiful, unique-

 light.
