Weekly Photo Challenge: Up in Houston

This is much belated post dedicated to my lovely friend Anne and her equally lovely family who generously took me in for a night on my way to Costa Rica last February. As I looked through my pictures of my short Houston layover, I noticed that we had done a lot of looking up: the sunset, birds on wires, camera shots, and the artistic light show celebration of Black History Month. A perfect addition to the Weekly Photo Challenge: UP.

Weekly photo challenge: color – purples and pinks

A violet adventure on Keimyung University‘s campus for my final instalment for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Color. Here are my other entries: the colorful graffiti of Hongdae and Color – Pink & Red. As always, thank you for stopping by! It was a fun week!

Between the urban cracks

My little dedication to this urban world I live in.

Have you ever thought about the grass that grows in sidewalk cracks?

These hardy plants are generally written off as undesirable. They’re routinely trampled, savaged by extreme summer heat, washed out by rainfall and buried by winter snow. To survive these conditions is a testament to the plants’ resilience, but they rarely get much love or attention.

weekly photo challenge: the colorful graffiti of Hongdae

When my sister — music and culture blogger at louizette.com — came to visit me last summer, we became explorers of the Korean landscape. From ancient red, yellow, and blue laced castles to lush green bamboo forests, her first visit to the land of neon lights was definitely a colorful one. One of our final adventures lead us through the vibrant graffiti laden streets of Hongdae, Seoul.

This week’s challenge, Weekly Photo Challenge: Color, was well timed by the fine folks at the The Daily Post. Colors are popping left and right here in Korea. Yellows, greens, purples… but today I will honor the red hue.

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Wednes(day) in My Life

Where do you find meaning?

For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person’s life at a given moment. – Viktor E. Frankl

Thanks to Patti Moed at Pilot Fish for the synchronicity of this quote found at her weekly challenge entry.

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Sun(day) in My Life

I think what I love most about this week’s photo challenge is that it encourages me to find beauty anywhere. You can see my first entry here and my second one here.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. – Melody Beattie
