Journey of a body on this earth

Power Struggle


I’m baaaack!  Did you miss me???  😛   I’m somewhat settled and it feels good to be in our new home. Life is sometimes a challenge but I’m learning that when there isn’t a struggle of power and you have an awesome teammate like I do in my husband, you can conquer anything.

This image was taken the other day only a few blocks away from that famous “back deck” you’ve all seen here many times.  The weather was very dramatic and I thought it amazing to see the utility poles representing man-made power vs. nature’s power surrounding and dwarfing them.  We are just a speck in the grand scheme of things.

  3. Welcome back Laura. Quite a striking image here.

  4. Yes! I missed you.
    Great post.

  5. Welcome back and congratulations on your move. I love the title of this image Laura. It represents, to me, the power we can control and the power we can’t. Sometimes, life happens the same way. Right?
    I look forward to seeing more of the power that you control in the form of your photography 🙂 Cheers!
