If I was a seahorse

If I was a seahorse,
I would laugh and
Play all day
We all have a dream
To go to the bay.

If I was a seahorse,
I would make plenty
Of friends
We’d all have loads
Of fun making dens.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture

I took this picture at the Tower of London while visiting over the Easter holidays. London is rich in history and culture. I recommend a visit to the Tower of London to anyone interested in England‘s history and perhaps a glimpse into the lives of monarchs of old.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Color

(I’m playing catch up on past photo challenges)

I love color and I’m growing to love photography more and more. Enjoy my colorful interpretations!

There’s a very old looking telephone booth where I live. The vibrant red really jumps out at me.

Creative mode on my Nikon camera (Selective color makes the color go "pop")

On a walk last Saturday, I took an interest to colorful pieces of litter.

Perhaps one company used this lovely green color to compensate for its "killer" package (Selective color mode)

Being an avid knitter, I wondered why this gorgeous soft pink wool was out on the street and not on a jumper or scarf.

I could think of many patterns for this wool...sad that it ended up in a pile of dirt.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

Changing leaves

I am struck by the contrast of brown dying leaves and green live leaves as the seasons change… It seems to me that two seasons exist together, with Winter not quite gone and Spring not quite here…
