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!

Sometimes I wake up in a fog…

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!

Guest host Frederic Biver has chosen a unique topic for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge! The topic is “dialogue,” and the challenge is to feature photos that speak to you! So here we go into my world of “Dialogue.”

One of the chimps at the Sacramento Zoo was definitely saying something to me!

You wanna talk to me?

You wanna talk to me?

Sometimes what speaks to you does so very softly that you need to listen carefully! Can you hear the water inviting me in?

And, sometimes something just gets in your face and says to you, “Hey, listen to me!”

Whatcha doing?

Here is a shot of one of weeds in our area. What do you think this plant has to say?

Photos can not only speak to you but they can cause your mouth to water…Can you just about taste these strawberries?

Sweet, sweet strawberries!

Let me close with someone who was definitely communicating with me!

I hope that you enjoyed my take on “dialogue!” Here’s to wishing you a fabulous Friday and a spectacular weekend! Thank you for dropping in! Be well! ^..^

This week the WordPress Photo Challenge subject is “Fray.” This could be a worn or raveled edge from something nature created or from constant rubbing. Photos are already coming to mind as I write this! Ready to see what Fray means to me? Let’s go!

In the spring, the buffalo in Yellowstone try to relieve themselves of their winter coats. They do this by rubbing their bodies up against the trees. We came across a tree that showed evidence of this!

Here are a couple of palm leaves that I photographed while in Mexico. Notice the strings hanging from the plants!

To me, the petals on the Gilardia always look frayed!

A jumble of seaweed that I discovered floating in the bay at Santa Catalina shows worn edges from being battered in the ocean before settling here.

The ducks around our local lake shed their feathers. These are the old feathers from a white goose.
