Mad Meandering Me – Bird footsteps – talk about going out of the box.  I adore that shot.

Third Person Travel – Eucalypts tree bark with larvae of the tiny scribbly moth.  Wonderful shot and also out of the box thinking.

Realization – A skein of yarn … such a brilliant eye and something I would not have dreamt of photographing.  Excellent.

Giberson9 – Brilliant photos of art and squiggles.  I really like the last shot.

Scene By Minerva – An Artichoke with marvels squiggly lines.

Serendipity – Nature at its best.  I so adore Marilyn’s water reflection photo.

We are on to a new series which I am calling Geometry.  This week our topic will be things with straight lines.  These items can be found on man made objects or in nature.  Have fun and be as creative as you like.

Current Series:   Geometry 

The Next Series – Five Elements/Seasons

  • OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWood / Spring – People who have strong energy of the Wood element have a clear vision and goals, and know how to bring them into being. They excel at planning and decision making. Their piercing, penetrating eyes may attract you.  Color for wood is green.
  • Fire / Summer – People with strong Fire energy may be quite charismatic. They excel at commanding others to action. They may love talking and socializing.  Color for fire is red.
  • Earth / Harvest – Someone with well developed Earth energy is a well grounded, nurturing, compassionate person, sometimes depicted as the archtypical “earth mother”.  Earth people like to bring others together and make good mediators or peacemakers and reliable friends. They often enjoy both preparing food and eating.  The color for earth is yellow.
  • Metal / Fall – A person with well balanced Metal energy is well organized, self disciplined, and conscientious. They like structure in their life. They are most comfortable in situations when they know the rules and can succeed by following them. Metal Qi bestows a deep inner strength, like ore mined from the mountains.  The color for Metal is white.
  • Water / Winter – The Water energy is a strong generative force centered in the lower belly. When the Kidney Qi is strong, a person is fearless, determined, and can endure many hardships in pursuit of their goals. Persevering by will power is characteristic of those with strong Kidney Qi.  The color for water is blue.

    1. Nope the bridge really goes down that steep. Chris said it was a little scary to drive. I was too busy getting nervous because I was taking photos all the way down!!! 🙂 Thanks for commenting.

  2. Thank you so much for the shout out. I intended to comment sooner, but your email got buried under the daily influx of junk mail. It’s so kind of you to like my swans. They are my favorites too and I’m always happy when others appreciate them 🙂


  3. Cee, excellent gallery – I’m really in trouble this week. The bridge is my pick this week. Have to carry on looking through all my files. Have a pleasant weekend.
