Weekly Photo Challenge: Enveloped

Weekly Photo Challenge is hosted by The Daily Post,
where we publish a new post with a photo interpreting the weekly theme..

Twilight zone..

 

This week’s theme is:

ENVELOPED

What does “enveloped” mean to you? It could be your post-bath toddler wrapped burrito-style in a huge fuzzy towel. How about the ever-present fog that meanders through your city? Is it the well-loved hammock you lie in devouring novels as if they were candy? Maybe it’s your favorite fluffy comforter, edges worn from love and use?

See how the sky was enveloped with dark clouds at dusk?
I love that view. ❤

“Sometimes things are most truly
revealed by the illuminance of twilight.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forces of Nature

Trip Spoiler

This week’s theme is:

FORCES OF NATURE

This week, share a force of nature from your corner of the world.
It can be something as large as the Grand Canyon, or as small as the tiny seedling steadily breaking is way through the concrete in your driveway.

It was sunny when we visited the majestic Taal Volcano in Batangas, Philippines.
Then, nimbus clouds started rolling in and it rained really hard.
We ended up cutting the trip short and sworn to go back some other day.

you gotta put up with the rain.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate

Weekly Photo Challenge is hosted by The Daily Post,
where we publish a new post with a photo interpreting the weekly theme..

Trees of Steel

This week’s theme is:

INTRICATE

What does the word “intricate” mean to you? It could be the deep, fibrous bark on the ancient oak tree in your yard. Maybe it’s the robin’s nest under construction near your window — that ornithological engineering marvel of mud and twigs. It could be the treasured piece of needlepoint your grandmother crafted, or maybe a drawing you made. It could be the leaves falling from trees in the Southern Hemisphere — the wind arranging them just so on your lawn.

You see how intricate the branches were woven to make like a canopy?
These trees are so cool! This is called The Trees, steel sculpture by Renato Paz Contreras
at the Burgos Circle Fort Bonifacio in the Philippines.

Advice from a Tree
-Stand tall and proud
-Go out on a limb
-Remember your roots
-Drink plenty of water
-Be content with your natural beauty
-Enjoy the view

Weekly Photo Challenge: Motion

Weekly Photo Challenge is hosted by The Daily Post,

Be safe pedestrian!

This week’s theme is:

MOTION

Capturing motion is a beautiful way to convey a story in a photograph, sometimes even more so than a photo of the same subject in a stationary pose. This week, share your photographs that have captured motion, and tell us the stories behind the images.

“The difference between sentiment and being sentimental is the following: Sentiment is when a driver swerves out of the way to avoid hitting a rabbit on the road. Being sentimental is when the same driver, when swerving away from the rabbit, hits a pedestrian.”

Mornin’ Sunshine!

This week’s theme is:

EARLY BIRD

This week (and especially if you’re among those who find the early bird concept cringe-worthy), I encourage you to set your alarm for the early hours, grab your first (several) cups of coffee, and challenge yourself to capture an outstanding photograph in the early morning light.

I’ve always been a morning person. I love mornings ’cause I love breakfast. Lol! 😀

Weekly Photo Challenge: Afloat

Sky Horse..

This week’s theme is:

AFLOAT
/əˈflōt/

How do you interpret the word afloat? It could be the expression on your son’s face as he jumps on the bed. Maybe it’s your daughter’s triumphant smile after tossing training wheels to master her two-wheeler. It could be a beautiful cloud formation, pollen on the breeze, or an errant birthday party balloon making its escape into the sky. So looking forward to seeing what afloat means to you.

I took this photo while on a gondola of a huge Ferris Wheel called the Sky Eye in Tagaytay, Philippines. It’s pretty right? I love Merry Go Rounds! It’s nice to be a kid again once in a while. 😀

Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur

Weekly Photo Challenge is hosted by The Daily Post,

Life in a haze..

This week’s theme is:

BLUR

This week, share a photo that’s a blur. You could keep your camera out of focus to achieve a blurry photo, or take a photo of something in motion. Or go in a different direction — capture an image of an experience that would otherwise be a blur, or of something in a state of flux. I look forward to finding the hidden meaning in your blurs!

I took this photo while I was waiting for a ride home from work.
Sometimes, I’m surprised how fast days passed by. Like the feeling of being left behind so I’m making sure that I do what makes me happy along with working all day. I can’t just let days passed me by without accomplishing the things I want to do like hoarding books. Lol! 😀

the line between work and play.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral

Weekly Photo Challenge is hosted by The Daily Post,
where we publish a new post with a photo interpreting the weekly theme..

Stoking Fire..

This week’s theme is:

EPHEMERAL
/əˈfem(ə)rəl/
adjective:
-lasting for a very short time.

Show us what ephemeral means to you. It could be a dry leaf floating on an errant breeze, the sleep-floppy smile of your waking three-year-old, or the cake that turned out just right before the hungry hordes descend on it.

It’s so windy when we decided to have a bonfire so the fire didn’t last long. It was so cold.

then chase the match.”

Caught in the Blue.

This week’s theme is:

FRESH

For this week’s photo challenge, share with us a photo that expresses something fresh. This topic is particularly wide open to interpretation; you might take a macro shot of blades of green grass peeking through melting snow, or the condensation on a glass filled with mojito, made with freshly-squeezed limes. Maybe the sweet face of a puppy, or a landscape at sunrise, the fresh start of a new day. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Oohh. Some freshly caught shrimps completed my trip to Subic last month. 😀

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wall

Weekly Photo Challenge is hosted by The Daily Post,

You’ve just been Graffitied!

This week’s theme is:

WALL

 This week, consider the walls you’ve erected and decorated,
the halls you walk down each day,
or the exteriors you’ve ignored or neglected.
What do these walls reveal about a place, people, or you?

I always pass this street on the way home from work and I remember it used to be just a gray wall. So I was in awe when I first saw that they have hired talented artists to have the wall graffitied. This wall along Kalayaan Street is actually long, but this part is my favorite because of the T-Rex and the quote on it.. “Understand and stretch your mind.” Pretty cool right? 😀

“Sometimes our walls exist just to see
who has the strength to knock them down.”
