In this case, dainty little “wildflowers,” hidden treasures within the grass.

A Word A Week Photograph Challenge – Round

2013_03_17_6880

This week’s word, as picked by Sue, is “round.” After sorting through my photographs, I located this image of the Tybee Island’s lighthouse’s light, which is indeed quite round.

To see other interpretations of round, check out Sue’s “A Word in Your Ear” blog here.

Presa Street Bridge

San Antonio’s Riverwalk is actually below street level; you can enter or exit the Riverwalk at each street’s bridge. I altered the color of this image of the Presa Street Bridge, I think the washed out colors makes it look old-timey.

What Is It?!? Week 15/52

Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life. - Omar Khayyam

Life is full-speed ahead! I am hoping that summer will bring with it a refreshing pace in life. (… and leave the heat and humidity behind, that would be such an oh-so-nice summer!)

Enough about the speed of life (which seems sometimes to be speedier than the speed of light!).

Without further delay, your 15th weekly “what is it?!?” mystery picture is ready for your guessing pleasure. Do you know? Can you tell?

What Was That?!? (Last Week’s Picture) – Week 14/52

Sébastien started off the guessing game with, “Thanks for the answer to last week. Seems so obvious now. For this week, looks like something melted…So first thought would be snow but I’m also thinking about sugar…” This isn’t melted, not sugar or snow, but interesting perspectives! Lilmisspoutine guessed, “toilet paper.” Not toilet paper. LOL Sarah came along and mused, “It seems so obvious now! Ok, guess no.1 for this week – bread?” Drum roll please … Ding ding ding! Bread indeed. Wow! “Good grief! First guess! It just made me think of the lovely fresh bread my hubby makes at the weekend.” There’s nothing like fresh baked bread. Cari jumped in and said, “Not that you’d have reason to believe that I got this right without looking at the previous comment (lol) but I really was about to say that I thought it looked like bread.” Then you get a ding-ding-ding, too! Fabio guessed, “Some kind of resin, Schelley? You already know that I am not good at all with guessing…” Not some kind of resin, but great perspective! And it’s not about how good you are at guessing, it’s all about sharing your perspective.

So yes, what you saw was bread. Good old fashioned bread.

P.S. Each week you’ll find the answer to the previous week’s mystery picture. I would never leave you hanging! ;-)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

La Antorcha de la Amistad

Spanish for “The Torch of Friendship”

2014_03_17_9999_212014_03_17_9999_7-3

(Two images) La Antorcha de la Amistad (The Torch of Friendship) is a monumental abstract sculpture located in downtown, San Antonio, Texas. World-renowned Mexican sculptor, Sebastián was commissioned to create this sculpture by the Asociación de Empresarios Mexicanos (Association of Mexican Business People). The monument was presented as a gift to the City of San Antonio from the Mexican government in 2002. The sculpture represents the cooperation and shared culture between Mexico and San Antonio. 

While my family was vacationing in San Antonio, we were able to see The Torch of Friendship sculpture twice – once in a boat ride down the San Antonio river, and the other time while walking downtown. It is quite monumental to say the least. El monumento es magnifico!

Wish I Was Here

My beloved San Antonio Riverwalk in the morning, before the swarm of visitors line its banks, hopefully they enjoyed it as much as we did! If the water looks green, it is, because the city dyes it for the St. Patrick’s Day river parade. It’s a natural non-toxic dye, which disappears in about a week. And the parade on the river? Wicked cool!
