Favorite #Uganda #photography #2017

small elephants

hope flows from many places

big smiles, all ages

 

So difficult to sum up this wonderful world of Uganda where my heart is without me. So I share a few.

in the same lane

motorcycles, trucks, and cars

we walk, some make it

 

Pedestrians is the WordPress photo prompt for the week.

I have learned to share a lane with multiple vehicles and other people in Northern Uganda.

Ikebana #haiku #art

 

Living art

nature creates new dimension

paint jealous

 

 

 

Ikebana is a japanese art form using nature to create the art. The biennial Ikebana exhibit at the Torpedo Factory integrates art.  A backdrop  (painting)  enhances the live art.

part of the art

I improvised and used a human for my  live art and a painting of a photographer for the backdrop.

This week’s photo prompt is Abstract.

As an art student, I was not enamored by the Abstractionist movement. Those I studied were using garbage as their media or a single color on canvas to make a statement. The trend was to break away from the traditional and find new ways to use lines and color. 

Be inspired by photographers:

Broken Egg #happyeaster #poetry

 

broken egg

All the king’s horses

All the king’s men

couldn’t put anything

together again

Here I lie broken

listless and cracked

there’s one who has risen

will take the world back

So I look to the cross

He will set all wrongs right

today He has risen

there’s love in His light

*

Doubt in the darkness

son breaks through world’s clouds

Easter dawns with HOPE

sun on cross

cherry sun

Sharing today’s post with GodInterest and the poets united Poetry Pantry. Wishing each of you a most blessed Easter.
