I thought showing the hustle and bustle of a busy area at night would be a good interpretation of the theme “City” — this weeks PhotoFriday theme. Or if not good, at least different from most of the other entries, which seem to be sky-scrapers from a distance(!).
When I think of “Stillness,” this weeks PhotoFriday challenge, I tend to think of a lake; an apparently unmoving body of water. (A lot of the other entries, to my eyes at least, don’t represent “Stillness.” Of course, mine may well miss the mark for them…)
Whatever its merits, this one was taken near Spooner Lake, which is very near Lake Tahoe.
I didn’t have an entry in the last challenge, so there’s no need to vote for me(!).
Incidentally, there was another PhotoFriday challenge with the theme “Stillness.” You can see my previous entry here. Tragically, I nearly used the same image again!
Of course, the person in this boat on Ha Long Bay is far from alone, which means I’m very much faking this weeks PhotoFriday challenge, “Solitude.” But he looks alone and the landscape is empty and beautiful so I think it fits the bill!
Please also vote for my entry in last weeks challenge, “Black and White.” I’m entry number 48.
Last year we went to Barcelona and visited the Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s amazing, unfinished cathedral. The organ was beautiful but it was difficult to get a picture of, until I realised the Reflection — this weeks PhotoFriday theme — of the stained glass window worked pretty well. (Don’t tell anyone, but my wife zoomed in closer and got a better image that I did.)
Please also vote for my entry in last weeks challenge, “My obsession.” I’m entry number 56.
