Unlikely #photochallenge #uganda

Unlikely is this

magenta Fort backdrop

Nile sunset

 

If you know me, you know I have tried to work in Liberia, No. Africa, Congo and So. Africa.  I never thought of Uganda, the Nile or mosquito netting as my “likely.”

 

The photo challenge this week is “Unlikely”

These pictures are all taken at Fort Murchison. A beautiful get-away and great place to enjoy an African Safari.

weekly-photo-challenge-fleeting/Fleeting Moments #photography

Through the smallest of creatures we are brought

end of the tunnel

transported through life’s tunnels

moved through a magical world

the walk

 strolling in the days’ warm shadows

astride in a colorful swirl 

the captive of a fleeting thought

This week for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge the prompt is fleeting.

Weekly Photo Challenge “Forward – The Challenge” #poetry #photography #philosophy #parenting

Ripples of Life

Take this stone

throw it

create a beginning

moving outward

fluid concentricity

touches more points

as it moves

light catcher

shape tracker

moves images

a sunken piece of mass

inspires me

to move

forward

*

*

As you  move forward what is it in the past that propelled you? Fear, a challenge, a friend, an enemy, money, debt…?

Was your move forward physical, spiritual?

Alone I never feared change or forward motion. For me “Forward” is a march toward adventure. As a mother, that move forward presents a different challenge. The ripple of the circle in the water reminds me of the move forward. It’s a challenge  when it involves others (those we love). There are edges of the circle (consequences) I cannot see or foresee.   The best I can do is hope (and pray) that those I love will weather the forward moving ripples in their paper boat of life.

HOW do the ripples inspire you???

WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge: In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture that says FORWARD to you.

Perhaps it’s a path you yourself have taken, the building where you’re starting a great new job, or the curve of your partner’s pregnant belly. It could be an image that shows a physical move, or something that evokes a major life change. We look forward (ha!) to your interpretations.
