WPC: 2017 Favorites

A WordPress challenge to choose a favorite photograph from this past year, I tried. Instead it led me to pick 12 photographs. Each with a story, each sharing the hope for detailed adventures coupled with an outpouring of powerful solitude. I am ever grateful for this space…to come to when I need to write and notice the details of a scene I wouldn’t otherwise dig into. I’d love to hear if you found a favorite within this grouping of 12. And, if you are interested in the story behind an image, please ask. I’m happy to share stories with you. (more…)

2015 Your Favorites

In 2015 I have posted 185 times, wow. I thoroughly enjoy using photography and words to express myself and it feels really nice to know that you are here, reading and listening. Many of you come back week after week, post after post, offering your support and kind feelings towards my images and thoughts. It is remarkable. Thank you.

I thought I would share the most viewed Weekly Photo Challenge, Monochrome Madness Challenge, Photograph/poem, and story of the year. Tomorrow I will share my own favorites of this year.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The top 15 most viewed posts this year consist of Weekly Photo Challenges and One Four Challenge posts. My number 1 post this year was “Happy Place”.

Monochrome Madness: This challenge has taught me so much about photography, composition and expression. I find my words that accompany my monochrome images are more reflective and emotional. This makes sense since that is how I feel when I look at most monochrome images. The most viewed monochrome post this year was “Black Eyes”.

Photograph/Poem: Although every post of mine usually consists of a photograph and poem, I usually only post one or two a week without a challenge attached to them. These are the posts that I hit the publish button because I am ready to share them. They are not written for anyone but me. The most popular post was “Dragon Scales”.

Short Story: I don’t write short stories very often here. I do enjoy telling stories and I am often inspired to do so when I read Aunt Beulah’s blog, she is a marvelous story teller, poet too. This Thanksgiving my side of the family all celebrated this holiday in separate places around the country. I was longing to feel connected to them and this post easily wrote itself. “The Thanksgiving I am Most Thankful For”.
