Weekly Photo Challenge: Threes

For this week’s challenge, we are supposed to share three shots of the same subject. I took these candid shots between nephew and uncle during the Lunar New Year holidays.

The unsuspecting uncle gets a little surprise: a nephew’s fart!

Hard to get angry with that face.

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 – Pink & Red

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.

Nature always wears the colors of the spirit. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

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.

A long Wednesday at work pays off with these visual gifts for the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond Visual Limits in Costa Rica

“I’m so lucky to see this.” A fleeting moment of awe and inspiration. At this moment, everyone on the airplane went beyond their usual visual limitations, and saw Costa Rica from such a generous perspective. I feel grateful to have been able to see the country from this point of view.
