This week the topic selected for the WordPress Photo Challenge is “Twinkle.” The challenge requires me to find anything that twinkles…I think I have just the photos! Let’s go take a look!

Sunlight on ice crystals catches my eye.

I would not have seen this spider web if the light didn’t catch the drops of water just right, which is what made me look in that direction.

I could have taken 100 photos of this scene and all would be different due to the moving water.

You can really see the twinkling in this photo of icebergs floating in Glacier Bay.

Ben Huberman, over at WordPress, has chosen the subject “Converge” for this week’s photo challenge.

Converge is defined as 1) To move toward one point and join together, or to come together and meet; 2) To meet or come together to form a crowd or group; 3) To come together and have one interest, purpose, or goal.

So, for today, I will be converging with others in this WordPress Photo Challenge! Ready?

Spiders are amazing insects with the ability to truly capture the definition of converge!

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!

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!
