Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

I had so much fun in Providence, Rhode Island, last summer with my sister and some friends.  The urban landscape captivated me, and I took all these pictures without any thought that I’d share them at the time.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  Cheers!

While the composition of this image pleases me, I mostly like how every person is facing the same direction in this shot.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

Life is entirely fleeting moments, so any photo could do for this challenge – any moment will never be again.  However, my take on a fleeting moment is one that wasn’t orchestrated.

A friend and I traveled to Cape Cod a few years ago, and had a marvelous time.  We were driving back to our hotel at dusk when we noticed a few coyotes in the field off to the right.  The pictures aren’t great, but I’m glad I captured one of the coyotes, and I especially like the zoom shot:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Peaceful

As for many of us, nature is where I find the most peace.  I took this picture from Mount Sugarloaf State Reservation several years ago when my son and I went up for a picnic before school started that year.  I visit the Reservation a few times a year, but try to go as often as I can.  You can drive up to the top from April through November (or before the first snowfall), but hiking up is a good trek as well.

It’s not just the river and mountain views that sooth me, but the bucolic scene spread out before me lends a peaceful sense of order and rhythm, and even if I’m off-kilter, I usually feel harmonious, or universally connected, on sunny, quiet days such as the one depicted here.
