Where desert meets sky

Silent sentinels stand guard

Desolate and grim

Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes

Share a picture of the world through your eyes, Cheri Lucas Rowlands says. And yesterday at midnight, this was the only world I saw – distant, hazy, mysterious:


a gentle dragon

attempts to swallow the moon…

but she shines on through

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

Share a picture which means SURPRISE to you! is Sara Rosso’s challenge today.

Can you imagine my pleasant surprise when I first saw this photo? My two sons in a suit, dancing! They are the ones right after the lady with the handkerchief. They went to Turkey with their dad a couple of weeks ago, to celebrate the wedding of their stepbrother and his lovely bride. When my ex-husband sent me this picture, I was delighted. My boys are growing into men. I know the quality of the photo is not good, but it’s the thought that counts, right? At the next party I’m going to drag them to the dance floor! 😉


Something else that never fails to surprise me is the moon in clear daylight.


And… surprise!
