Patti’s set us a challenge today, that of sharing photos the convey emotion. I don’t take lots of photos of people, but humans aren’t the only ones who express emotions. What emotions do you see?

Can’t resist a reprise of my W.C. Fields cactus. 🙂

for Six Word Saturday l.9.21

Day 9 of the travel photo challenge Su of Zimmerbitch asked me to participate in, no explanation needed for the photo. I’m going with the retro look today for this Yellowstone shot. Today I’m nominating Dan of NoFacilities. Dan, if you’d like to participate, please pingback or link to my post or blog. And have fun.

This challenge is a bit like “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego”, although my repertoire of locations is much more limited! This is Day 7 of posting ten travel photos without explanation and then nominating someone else to do the same. (I was nominated by Su from Zimmerbitch.) Today I nominate Aletta of nowathome, coming to you all the way from South Africa. If you participate, please link back to this post. Now let’s travel!

Su from Zimmerbitch nominated me to participate in this challenge. One photo, no explanation needed. One nomination: Tish from Writer on the Edge. “Requirements”: Post one travel photo each day for ten days, no explanation needed. Or as many days as you feel like. If you participate, pingback to my post. Nominate others if desired; repeat as desired. Enjoy.

Wherever the neighborhood where we currently live, my neighborhood of heart is here in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. I was fortunate enough to visit for three weeks this summer.

The neighborhood.

Morning is my favorite time of day to be out and about, so many of my walks include a sunrise. I love the feeling of anticipation, of the new days, of possibilities.

Sunrise looks spectacular in the nature; sunrise looks spectacular in the photos; sunrise looks spectacular in our dreams; sunrise looks spectacular in the paintings, because it really is spectacular!

Leaving our cabin in Wyoming in 2017, I had to pause on my way down the mountin to catch a spectacular sunrise the morning of the eclipse. At the time of the actual eclipse, I was in the Badlands.

Sometimes sunrise doesn’t look the way we usually visualize it.

At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear.”
― Norman Maclean, “A River Runs Through It and Other Stories

Sometimes morning is full of promise, leading you into the day.

At sunrise, the blue sky paints herself with gold colors and joyfully dances to the music of a morning breeze.
― Debasish Mridha

If you want to be reminded of the love of the Lord, just watch the sunrise.
― Jeannette Walls, “Half Broke Horses”

Where we live now in the desert, sunrise is generally sudden. The sun isn’t there…and then it is. There isn’t much to block its rising.

(more…)

Feeling better, but it seems that there’s always “just one more thing.” Anyway…I’m foregoing Thursday Doors again this week as I don’t feel up to going to so many blogs and I feel bad if I don’t get to them all. So…just offering you a foggy summer view of Wyoming’s Big Horn Mountains as I continue to recuperate. 🙂
