This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is “Selfie.” This is something new that has come about with the new cell phones where one takes a photo of themself. I must say that the last thing I ever think of when I am taking photos is to take a photo of myself. There is certainly a lot more of the world out there that is more interesting to me than to share than a photo of myself! So, with this in mind, here are my photos of “Selfie:” Photos that represent my personality and interests!

This week’s photo challenge from WordPress is “one.” They ask for photos that have focal point and tell a story…That’s a lot for a photo to do, and I have a few to share with you. My challenge to you is for you to tell me the story that you see in the following photos!

Sometimes it is really hard to come up with photos for a photo challenge, other times not. This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Habit is one of those that is a challenge.

Habit is defined as “a settled or regular tendency or practice, esp. one that is hard to give up.” Well, clearly writing this blog is a habit, and one that is hard to give up! My husband puts up with me spending an hour in the mornings, even while on a vacation, adding to my blog. Clearly a habit!…Thank you my husband!

So I got to thinking about what to feature in this post, and the one thing that stuck in my mind, is that I have a regular practice of taking photos of things close up. So today, I share with you my habit of looking at the world in my way: Closer up than most would do! I hope that you will enjoy this selection of photos!

The horizon is where the sky meets the earth in an apparent line where the two are divided. This is the topic of this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge! Here are some views of the horizon through my lens…

What shows the horizon better than the sun setting at the edge of the world?

Here is a shot from sea of the horizon at Mazatlan.

Looking towards the horizon in the desert of Arizona one can capture some amazing, intense colors as the sun sets.

I love this week’s photo challenge, which is “Lines and Patterns.”  The challenge asks that we find “lines and patterns in the world around us, in nature and things man-made. Sometimes we don’t realize they’re there:   On the street; across the walls; up in the sky; and along the ground on which we walk.”  Here are lines and patterns that I just recently photographed, some man-made, others in nature!

Let’s begin with two that captured my eye recently that are man-made….The first is a patterned wall that I discovered.  The colors and weave are what caught my eye!

A wall in a building

Glitz was everywhere in this building and looking up I found these lovely lines and patterns. The random patterns are reflections of all underneath this area of the ceiling…

Moving on to those found in nature, check out these lovely lines and patterns found in sandstone in the desert!

Getting close to a rock wall shows all the details that one could miss just walking by…

Looking at the earth beneath my feet the earth is parched.

Continuing on it changes to beautiful grains of sand that squish beneath my feet as I walk.

Walking on further I find the skin shed off of a snake. Holding it up to the light I see beautiful lines and patterns, a fingerprint of sorts from the snake that moved on.

A plant in the desert, one of my favorite, a barrel cactus, sits before me. The beauty of this is found in the contrasting colors, lines and spinal patterns…

Lines go every which way

I am writing this on Thursday night so I can post this early in the morning on Friday.   I found Dory from “Finding Nemo” fame in a fish resort at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas!  Go figure!    And I just had to post photos of my new friend Dory!  She felt like posing…and she wanted me to ask you…”Do you feel like swimming with me?”

Meet Dory. She is beautiful, and you just want to kiss those lovely lips…don’t you?

My name is Dory

My name is Dory

Dory is unbelievably shy…but she poses for me anyway!

BTW, she did not remember posing for this photo when we did a photo review!

“Kiss me!” she says…

Kiss me!

Kiss me!

She does not remember this one either!

Time to go to sleep! “Do I know you?” she asks. (Huge yawn!) Here she is taking a nap!

Now that you have gotten to know my friend Dory, don’t you think she is pretty cool? I do, and hugs to you Dory for allowing me to take your photo and for all of the amazing poses you did for me!

Way to go for making it to the end of the week! Have a fabulous Friday, and HUGE THANKS for stopping by to visit! Hugs to you all!
