Sunday Stills: Life in a #Waterworld

Memorial Day in the US is the traditional start to summer, which brings throngs of people to lakes, rivers and oceans. Perhaps, but not in 2020… ...as the threats of exposure and illness from the coronavirus keep people home and away from their favorite leisure spaces. Even as most US states have opened up for …

Sunday Stills: Who’s Your Top #Dog?

Today is National Pet Parents Day, but you don't have to own a pet or even a dog to participate in this week's Sunday Stills Photo Challenge. Our pets give us comfort with their unconditional love in times of need and uncertainty. If you have followed my blog very long, you know I have been …

Sunday Stills: Lifted #Spirits

Last Tuesday, as I mused over what images I could use to depict this week’s theme “Lifted Spirits,” something wonderful happened which lifted mine.

Sunday Stills: #Stillness of Summer

If you reside in the northern hemisphere, the summer solstice arrived on Friday, marking the longest day of the year. I acknowledge my friends in the southern hemisphere as midwinter has arrived! Is the notion of stillness even possible during the summer? For most of my adult life, summer was constantly go-go-go, with work demands …

Sunday Stills: Seeking #Warmth

The theme “warmth” for this week’s Sunday Stills photo challenge conjures a variety of ideas. For many, it has been a cold, harsh winter. I spent last weekend in South Lake Tahoe for our Ladies Retreat. The Sierra Nevada mountains in May can be warm, cold or both! This time, although the nights and early …
