Here are this week’s prompts: Perspective, Golden, Bloom, Dark and Local. And here are my efforts.
I decided to use this definition of PERSPECTIVE: a state of existing in space before the eye. We were down at our neighborhood beach on Friday and I asked our friend Bob to hold still while I took this picture. Good guy that he is, he did what I asked. In his sunglasses, I could see what existed in the space before Bob’s eyes. I think that’s kind of cool.
This is a koi from a local restaurant Zorba’s where we go occasionally for lunch. Now that the weather is nice, they open their pleasant outdoor area and you can sit next to this lovely koi pond. I’m not a big fan of fish but I think these are very pretty. He’s like an overgrown GOLD(EN) fish.
It was Ralph Waldo Emerson who said, “What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have never been discovered.” Most people consider the dandelion a weed, but I like its cheery yellow demeanor and love it when they turn to seed. The dandelion is a BLOOM that I enjoy.
Here is one of the newest residents of our neighborhood. His name is Maverick and he may be DARK but that doesn’t mean he isn’t sweet and friendly. Welcome, Maverick!
We are so lucky that this scene is within a five minute walk from our front door. This is LOCAL for us.
