Life Imitates Art – Fun Poses to Remember!

One of the suggestions for the Weekly Photo Challenge ‘s “Life Imitates Art” theme was imitating a sculpture, so I knew I had to take part. One of Blair’s favorite vacation activities is lining us up for some fun photos. At first we all just rolled our eyes but over the years these have become our favorite vacation memories.

WPC – Monochromatic, The Beauty Of A Sunrise.

This Weekly Photo Challenge theme is Monochromatic. I took these photos early one morning as I tried to play with some of the settings on my camera. The peace of the morning sunrise was very easy to capture in this beautiful setting. The blue sky is the focal point of all these photos.




WPC – Beneath Your Feet

I am a little behind on these challenges but I like doing them so much that rather than ignore the ones I missed I am just going to catch up.

This photo challenge is titled Beneath Your Feet and my photos goes back to 2004 when we took the kids across their first suspension bridge.  It was a fun and memorable experience for us all.


WPC – Half And Half

Looking back on our recent Whistler/Squamish trip it was hard to decide on a picture for this weeks, Weekly Photo Challenge, so I selected three. Being out in nature allows for so many interpretations for this challenge. Here are my thoughts.

My first photo was taken at Joffre Lake Provincial Park while hiking. This is a view at the second lake with the lake allowing for a mirror reflection of the beautiful mountain backdrop.


This photo was taken while searching for a Ghost Town just off the Sea to Sky portion of the Trans Canada Trail. Half trees and half mossy grass made for a relaxing walk.

And last is our friends campground at Paradise Valley in Squamish. The sheer size of the site inspired this photo with the RV only taking up half of the area. This was the largest site we have ever had the privilege of camping in.


WPC – Doors

This weeks Weekly Photo Challenge Theme is “Door”. Camping and hiking in the Whistler area gave me amble opportunity to photograph a variety of doors. Here is my top selection.
