Journey of a body on this earth


In Flight – Monochrome Madness

This week I dove into my archives and found an image I hadn’t worked on and thought I’d see what I could come up with.  And no, I did not dive in the pike position.  :P

My husband and I were walking along the beach at Half Moon Bay and we saw a flock of seagulls standing along the shoreline.  They were perfectly content to stand there as we walked by, but I really wanted the birds in flight, so my husband gave them a mean look……….just kidding!  LOL.  My husband actually jogged through the flock so they would take off in flight and I fired off a few shots.  We were just helping them work off their breakfast.  :)

I’ve seen these gulls all my life but I’m not exactly sure what constitutes the darker-color except they could be younger.  I know the adults have the whiter face, neck and breast, but I’m honestly not quite sure whether these are a totally different type of gull.  If there are any birders out there in Word Press Land who could give me a positive identification, that’s be great!

Sunset From the Back Deck

The other night my husband and I were sitting out on our back deck enjoying the view when I decided to get my camera and use whatever lens was already on it to take some pictures.  Low and behold my macro lens was on.  Shocking I know, lol.

Since my movement is quite limited at the moment, I took pictures from my chair and never moved except for the direction I was pointing the camera.  It was kind of fun and challenging.

It’s taken me a few days to get to the images, but here they are.


“Paper” Flowers – Monochrome Madness

It’s good to be back for MMC!  Hopefully I will be here each week from now on.  This week’s image is part of a flower arrangement I received as a get well from a friend of mine.  At first I loved the color but then all of a sudden I had this urge to process it in B&W.  I kind of like the paper flower look and hope you do as well.  Ahh…feels good to be back!
