Round Robin Photo Challenge ~ Before and After…

Before and After

 

 

Hello Robins! Here is my interpretation of Before and After. This is the window I look out from when I’m on my computer. I’ve seen so many sweet birds out in the bushes.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

Round Robin Photo Challenge ~ Outside the Window

 

It’s time for a new challenge. The idea for this one is to stand (or sit) outside a window, and photograph through it to whatever is inside.  Visit the Round Robin Photo Challenge Blog to see more entries for this challenge.

Here are a few photos I’ve taken that qualify for this challenge.

 

Looking in to a Tea Room in Santa Monica, California.

 

A fairy tale shop at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.

 

A bridal gown shop in Laguna Beach, California. Generic with no sentiment or emotion attached when I took this. This next photo is another story…

 

This is our daughter in front of the Bridal shop in Bellevue, Washington where we just purchased her wedding dress. Very sentimental and personal with plenty of emotion attached!

A wedding is afoot at our house but because my daughter is marrying a Marine who will soon be in Active duty we do not know what date we can choose for the event yet. It will be sometime in the next year in the meantime we are preparing what we can because we might have very little notice for the actual event.

Have a great weekend Robins!

Turn, Turn, Turn

Words-adapted from The Bible, book of Ecclesiastes
Music-Pete Seeger

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to build up,a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late

Round Robin Photo Challenge ~ Weather!

The Challenge for today is weather! Click on the Robin to see more “weather”.

 

Snoqualmie Falls December of 2009

 

It was cold enough that the mist from the falls froze causing this icy spectacular sight.

***Oops I forgot to make 3 suggestions for future Photo Challenges. This isn’t easy. How about a color challenge. Or maybe  “strangers unaware”. Have we done wheels, or barns, or statues, or neon signs, or signs in general? Now I’m getting carried away…

Round Robin Photo Challenge ~ Statues

It’s time again for the Round Robin Photo Challenge! The theme is Statues. Please visit the Round Robin Blog to see more entries.

Hello Fellow Robins! Looking forward to seeing your statues today.

I decided to go with this copy of Michelangelo’s David in it’s Goliath proportions!

I took these shots at the Forest Lawn in Glendale, California. That’s my daughter Katie standing next to David to give you some perspective.

 

Have you ever read the story of David and Goliath? This giant of a man and the Philistines were taunting the Israelites and challenged them to send someone out of the nation of Israel to fight Goliath and if they could kill him the Philistines would be their servants. If not the Israelites would have to serve them. Every one in the Israelite army was afraid to face this giant but David a shepherd boy was really upset that this giant would taunt David’s God and he decided to go up against Goliath.

1 Samuel 17: 4, 41-51 (New Living Translation)

Then Goliath, a Philistine champion from Gath, came out of the Philistine ranks to face the forces of Israel. He was over nine feet tall!

Goliath walked out toward David with his shield bearer ahead of him,  sneering in contempt at this ruddy-faced boy.  “Am I a dog,” he roared at David, “that you come at me with a stick?” And he cursed David by the names of his gods.  “Come over here, and I’ll give your flesh to the birds and wild animals!” Goliath yelled.

David replied to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies—the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.  Today the Lord will conquer you, and I will kill you and cut off your head. And then I will give the dead bodies of your men to the birds and wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel!  And everyone assembled here will know that the Lord rescues his people, but not with sword and spear. This is the Lord’s battle, and he will give you to us!”

As Goliath moved closer to attack, David quickly ran out to meet him.  Reaching into his shepherd’s bag and taking out a stone, he hurled it with his sling and hit the Philistine in the forehead. The stone sank in, and Goliath stumbled and fell face down on the ground.

So David triumphed over the Philistine with only a sling and a stone, for he had no sword.  Then David ran over and pulled Goliath’s sword from its sheath. David used it to kill him and cut off his head.

Land or Sea…

It’s time for the Round Robin Photo Challenge and I had to go to my archives because I’ve been buried in the garage packing and unpacking boxes from the condo. The boxes are from California so I thought it fitting to show you a California beach shot. This was taken in January of 2010. I am now in Washington State full-time so you’ll be seeing more Pacific Northwest shots in the future. Happy May 8th everyone and a very Happy Mother’s Day to any mothers that stop by!
