Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Nature (Freedom on the Beach)

iPhone Tuesday 9-8-15

Kids + Beach = Freedom to Run

Put two kids on the beach together and they naturally fall in step, running toward the open water, sunshine and surf.

Ryan and his cousin Sophia were my inspiration for this week’s “nature” challenge at Lens and Pen by Sally.


Photographers, artists, poets: show us SPEED.

Every September the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce hosts the Edmonds Classic Car Show filling our downtown area with hundreds of classic cars, live bands, great food and a lot of families having fun. We always stop by and Ryan and his cousins race from car to car trying to choose their favorite(s). Sometimes the bright colors win, sometimes the incredibly loud engines win and a few times originality has been the top feature.

When I saw today’s Daily Prompt: Speed I couldn’t resist showing a few of our family photos from the past two car shows. The cars return September, 8th 2013!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Kiss

At the beach

When I saw today’s prompt for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Kiss  I immediately thought of this picture of my son and his cousin at the Oregon Coast.  I love the contrasts between her sweet heart hoodie, his rough “end of the summer” knees and their tender little hands.  The sweetness soon turned to flying sand and salt water but with this picture I have proof that they love each other.
