For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: coast.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: cast off.
For this week’s prompt, I am choosing curve. I love the curve of the beach and the shadow and the cliff, all mirroring together.
Attach your favorite examples of curves in photographs and I will list them next week. Have a wonderful Monday. ________________________________________
Last week’s prompt was detail.
Bushboy checks in with a flower detail new to me.
My daughter and I hiked North Beach yesterday, for my birthday. I am off for two days of vacation. I was trying to identify this bird and didn’t figure it out until I was home. A harlequin duck. What a beauty! But having time with my daughter is the best gift.
This is for Norm2.0’s Thursday doors.
Norm’s photographs today are of 11th century doors, well, I am so jealous. My local door pictures are feeling unsatisfying. I like this door to the ferry though, more of a virtual door, with the ramp up and waiting. I went out this morning and with the cloud cover everything was shades of blues and silvers and greys, except for the wind sock.
I like all the cormorants on the pilings too, waiting to warm up.
For Wordless Wednesday.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: haze.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: jet.
I am going to use the meaning of the color jet: jet black. The color is from jet, lignite used in jewelry. Lignite is a precurser to coal. I have a necklace of jet beads from my great aunt.
This coot is jet black in the sun and against the water. Coots look self-contained to me, shyer than the ducks. They look down in the water and make noises to them selves, not like the insistent mallards. They move a little bit robotically. The neurological wiring seems more primitive than the ducks.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: exercise.
I have not been exercising this week, since Monday. I have barely left the house! but influenza is like that and it’s a time to rest.
I photographed this pair of American wigeons napping last weekend, at Kai Tai Lagoon in the sun. Napping in the water, how clever, I can’t do that. I do think I woke them, but at least one returned to sleep. Hopefully I’ve learned my lesson in the past too. I have to rest when I am sick and return to exercise afterwards!
