Journey of a body on this earth

Enlightenment – Monochrome Madness


My first big outing since my surgery was north of the Golden Gate on Sunday.  After we were greeted by the colorful pelican (from yesterday’s post), we went to Rodeo Beach.  It was a gorgeous day!

Many photos have been taken of the unique rock formations at this beach, but I knew I couldn’t walk that far on the sand with my knee the way it is…at least not yet.   So I started looking at what else I could come up with.  The funny thing is that often I am looking out in the distance for an image rather than right in front of me.  I think my macro has taught me to look closer.  🙂

  1. Great shot Laura, I love the way the path leads you into the image. Glad to hear you are on the mend 🙂

  2. Great monochrome image – Your words ring true as well, sometimes we are so focused on what’s in the distance, we do not see what is right in front of us.

  3. This is such a well composed photo..? Glad you are getting around more….

  6. Interesting figure at the end of the path. Nice BW image

  7. I responded to your photograph with, Oh now there’s a mystery.” Which then sent me into mystery solving mode. Which then gave me a new story to write. Thanks!
