WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: SEA

Here’s hoping the ocean and the sea are the same thing. I know smaller bodies of water are called seas but cruise ships set out to sea in the ocean so I’m wandering after that train of thought…

MUSIC IN PICTURES CONTEST: FLY AWAY – LENNY KRAVITZ

I dig the weekly photo or writing contests, but I really love this new Music in Photos contest since it incorporates music!

Here’s my entry for Lenny Kravitz’s “Fly Away”

I wish that I could fly
Into the sky
So very high
Just like a dragonfly

I’d fly above the trees
Over the seas in all degrees
To anywhere I please…

These little guys don’t have the wing-power… yet.
WTF: Want to Fly!

Now when you hear this song, may you always put out your elbows, tuck your thumb under your arm pit and flap those chickee wings in earnest!

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: INSIDE

In the morning, with the light streaming through the window, the walls disappear and the kitties joyfully sun themselves.

Inside kitties feeling like they’re outside in the warm sun.
WTF: Warm the fur!

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – FLEETING MOMENT

Knott’s Berry Farm, on my daughter’s birthday, presents a whole new magical experience at night!

They project lights across the floor and the kids decided the goal was to make it through Camp Snoopy without stepping on any lights on the ground.

WTF! Watch the floor!
Don’t step on stars or you’re in HOT LAVA!

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: SUMMER

Hot summer days need cool water balloons! What do you do to beat the heat?

WTF: Water Tub o’Fun!

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: HANDS

Jazz Hands!  WTF?! – Where’re The Forearms?

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: UNFOCUSED

I chose this picture because this person maintained extreme focus but the result was unfocused.

WTF – Watch the Force!

Master Daniel focused to break 10 boards with his hand!

BACK TO THE FUTURE – NOVEL WAY TO CAPTURE HISTORY

The other day my daughter and I drove down the street when this caused me to do a nearly- illegal u-turn in the street.

It’s even cooler in real life!

We admired every detail as my mind started racing thinking of the increments of time covered in these Back to the Future films.  The ability to go back, reliving or rewriting one’s past by being present seemed amazing!  Revisiting parts of one’s life knowing then what you know now allows you to fulfill one of life’s greatest mantras.  Then my mind started debating the time traveling done in the trilogy compared to the time-continuum theory suggesting all time takes place concurrently!  I couldn’t keep up and my mind quickly grew cluttered making me dizzy.

Props from all 3 films – awesome!

Then a gem known as Irina Werning distracted me and I wandered after her for a bit.  She was featured in O Magazine because her photography gives people the opportunity to revisit their past, relive a moment or a memory via photographs.  She recreates a childhood photo for people using them as adults now in the same pose, the same clothes (or lack of clothes), same setting and background.

It gives the subjects an eerie sense of déjà vu, instantly transporting them back to that time and those emotions.  At the same time, it shows the progression but sort of in an eerie “apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” manner.  I encourage you to check out her features: Back to the Future and Back to the Future 2.

My favorite captures the boy at the Berlin Wall that is missing from the later picture – talk about progress.

I love the one of the young girls who were dressing up and who turned out more lovely than they probably even imagined at that age.

Sonia y Lauri 1988 & 2011 Bs Aires (C) Irina Werning

The adorable naked babies that are now ridiculous naked adults feels rebelliously and painfully proud!

Flor 1975 & 2010 Buenos Aires (C) Irina Werning

The family shots with siblings or the whole family crack me up!  How fun as serious “grown ups” to be able to re-create sidesplitting family moments?

Devoto 1990 & 2011 Buenos Aires (C) Irina Werning

Of course, now I’m wracking my brain thinking of fun photos of myself and my two sisters to recreate for a fun Mother’s or Father’s day gift!  What photo would you reenact?

WEEKLY PHOTO CONTEST: TOGETHER

I’ve always wanted kitties that love to snuggle and hang out together!

Moonshine (L) & Blinky (R)

Don’t get me wrong, Blinky (16 years – the groomee) and Moonshine (2 years – the groomer) wrestle with fur flying at least once a day, but then the young’n helps the old’n.

Of course, I can’t have this post without some cute ones of my kids – back when they didn’t know what bickering was.

Lauren (2) & Carson (5 1/2)

He is the most protective big brother and she is the coolest little sister!

In a strange blend of the two:

KidKats!

A family that plays together stays together – seriously, my son is wondering how they are even in the same family together…

WTF: Why The Face?

Together forever!
