Xiao over at WordPress has chosen topic “angular” for this week’s photo challenge! As I love patterns, this is a perfect challenge for me! So here is my angular world!

We were visiting Harrah’s Casino in Las Vegas, and when we stepped outside, and I looked up, I fell in love with the angles on the building at night!

At Hoover Dam, I stood under one of the towers and looked up. The angles on the tower were electric!

Inside the dam, there were interesting angles inside the generator room!

Angles are not always straight. Check out the shifting angles on this fern fiddle!

One of the most amazing displays of angles in nature was the basalt formation we discovered in Yellowstone National Park.

Jen H. over at WordPress has chosen the topic “minimalist” for this week’s Photo Challenge! She states,”Minimalist photography is characterized by a large portion of negative space, a fairly monochromatic color palette with good contrast, and an interesting subject that is able to stand on its own to capture the interest of the viewer.” Let’s see what I can do with this one, shall we?

Guest host Pete Rosos has chosen the subject “Cover Art” as this week’s WordPress Photo Album. This got me thinking about what photos that I can feature that would make for good cover art for a music album or a book. With this in mind here are the photos that I feel meet this week’s challenge!

Kevin Conboy has chosen the subject of this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge; and it is “Refraction.” What is refraction? Miriam Webster defines refraction as: 1) deflection from a straight path undergone by a light ray or energy wave in passing obliquely from one medium (as air) into another (as glass) in which its velocity is different; 2) the change in the apparent position of a celestial body due to bending of the light rays emanating from it as they pass through the atmosphere; also: the correction to be applied to the apparent position of a body because of this bending; and 3) the action of distorting an image by viewing through a medium. I share with you refraction!

Michelle over at WordPress has chosen the topic “Dreamy” for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge! Great topic Michelle! She asks that we share “an image that looks dreamy to you. A photo of a place you often visit in dreams. A snapshot of your dreamy boy- or girlfriend. A scene that looks a bit out-of-this world. Take us on a flight of fancy!” Ready?

Using Michelle’s words: This photo is “silent, peaceful, perfect.”

Silent, peaceful, perfect!

Silent, peaceful, perfect!

Sometimes I wake up in a fog…

Other times, I find myself floating…

Or looking at something that seems not of this world!

Cherie Rowlands over at The WordPress Photo Challenge has chosen the topic “Signs” for this week’s photo challenge. Cherie says, “Signs can direct us where to go, but they’re also pieces of art, which reveal much about the time period and culture in which they were made. For those of you who have a less literal approach to our photo challenges, a sign can also be a gesture or a cue. Something welcome. Or mysterious. Or even foreboding.” So, here are the signs that I came up with!

Here is a sign of fall…

Fall is in full swing!

Thank you for stopping by, and have a great weekend! Be well! ^..^
