Minimalist

This weeks photo challenge from The Daily Post is minimalist. Here is my interpretation of the prompt, with a picture and a short poem. Thanks for reading!

Colors

Sharpened pieces of wood
Colors of the rainbow
Waiting to be held between my fingers
My imagination flows, which way should I go?

Soft pastel, bright or bold
The colors draw me in
To a world that begins
Shaped and shadowed, then filled softly in

The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Silhouette

This week’s photo challenge is silhouette. So I went with a few of my favorites. Hope you enjoy.

 

This one is probably one of my favorites. I managed to get the silhouette of the tree in my backyard against a glorious sunset.

This is the same tree, except in winter silhouette, white against a pure blue winter sky. The tree was covered in hoar-frost.

A couple of more hoar-frost covered trees, except these are at night. I love the ‘otherworldly’ like quality of the picture.

Here is my contribution.

My dog Sam and my cat Pouncer sharing the same sunbeam. Now they are a contrast as their personalities are such that this sharing is a very rare occurrence.

I love this picture I took last year of a sunset off my patio. The bare trees are a sharp contrast against the beautiful fiery sunset.

My mother, who will be 85 this year. A woman of many contrasts. She can be the nicest person in the world. Just don’t dare cross her!  My mother and I have had our difficulties in the past, but she is the strongest woman I know as she has overcome so many things in her life. She is only 4’11, but she is a giant in personality.

PHOTO CHALLENGE Room

Room

From the four walls that currently surround you to the infinite potential of space, this week we’d like you to show us your take on room, rooms, or a room.

Here is my take, nothing better than Mother Nature’s room. These were taken in Alberta, Canada. They are pictures of the Canadian side of the Rocky Mountains.
