Photo 101 – Weekend One: Experiment with Composition

It’s time to take a break from our daily themes, so enjoy your days off. Use the weekend to catch up, tackle themes for which you didn’t have photos, or practice techniques you’ve learned.

I hope you aren’t tired of my beach pictures and you like my composition experiment.
Oh, and my poem.  🙂

A gull riding the gusts of wind
A boat sailing across the sea
Running wild into the ocean
Just letting it be
Daring to be yourself no matter what others may think
Living life openly without looking back
Freedom

Blogging 101 – Day Four: Identify Your Audience

We often create posts hoping that someone in particular will see (and appreciate) our work. Today, publish a post you’d like that person (or people) to read — and stretch your blogging chops as you do.

Today’s Assignment: publish a post you’d like your ideal audience member to read, and include a new-to-you element in it.

My first impulse was to write that I don’t create posts hoping that someone in particular will see them! I even told my bestie that I was going to write how my blog is for myself, how I post for myself, not anyone else. Oh boy, I was going on a tangent.
Yes, I stepped on my soapbox and ranted away. My poor friend. 🙂
Then as I started to write, I realized that I do have someone in particular that I want to see my posts.

I will let my picture and words speak for themselves…

Photo 101 – Day Three: Water

We have different relationships to and stories about water: how it has saved or defeated us. How it reminds us of family vacations, outdoor adventures, or the hot summers of our childhood. How it might symbolize a place we’ve left behind, or a location we dream to go.

Oh, ocean
Take me away
Enfold me in your waves
Steal me away from the shore

Freeze me
Numb my pain
Let me drown
In your vastness

Let me sink
To the bottom of the ocean
Let me experience
All that you have to offer

The Sky Will Shine Again

Too say that I miss you would be too much
Too say that I love you would be too far
Too say I want your arms around me and pull me close would be too cruel

What I want… is not able to be given
What I need… must be put aside
As each day lingers and each night falls… I slip into a darkness

Much too dark to ever shine
Abandoned, desolated, forsaken
I collapse only to rise again
