Photo Friday: Downward

Several years ago, Dan and I, along with my good friend Barbara, took a trip to the Grand Canyon. I took this photo at the South Rim of a group of tourists with a guide. It’s really hard to portray the Grand Canyon in photos. It’s so majestic and almost seems to surround you, even when you’re standing on the rim, that it’s easy to understand why it’s one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

This is my contribution to Photo Friday. This week’s theme is Downward.

Photo Friday: Floral

I took this photo of a hyacinth in our yard when I was taking a photography class at the Muse Writers Center in Norfolk. It turned out so beautifully that I framed it and hung it in my office.

I used my GorillaPod mini tripod to set up this photo. I love that thing – the flexible legs can wrap around anything, I can set it up on a table or the ground, and I often end up carrying my camera around with it, which sometimes makes it easier to make a shot. Cool tool.

Photo Friday: Cloudy

I was coming out from work one day last fall and saw this view – the striking contrast of the bare tree branches against the blazing sunset and clouds. Gorgeous.

Photo Friday: Curvature

Heh, I almost forgot I had a blog 😉 I take a lot of pictures, of food and other stuff, and then I don’t get around to posting them here. Going to try to change that.

So here’s my contribution to the Photo Friday photo challenge for this week – Curvature. I took this photo in Pisa, Italy, during our 25th-anniversary trip there in 2009. This is the arch over the main entry door to the Pisa Baptistery, with a statue of the Madonna and child.

Photo Friday: Ethereal

We have some fennel plants in the herb garden. A couple summers ago, I was weeding the garden and noticed that there were dozens of ladybugs in the fennel fronds.

Photo Friday: Breathtaking

When we were in Florence, Italy, in September 2009, we went to the Mercado Centrale, or Central Market. I’ve never seen anything like it – all kinds of fresh and preserved foods, wines, vinegars, oils – it went on and on and on. Took my breath away to think about being able to shop in a place like that every day.

This is my entry in the weekly photo challenge at Photo Friday. Last week’s topic was Breathtaking (yeah, I’m late posting again).
