Almost forgot two of my favorite silhouette photos, so I’m sliding in at the last-minute with my second entry for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge This is my daughter watching the fish and looking for the turtles in the turtle tank at Sea World San Diego.
When you see a fish you don’t think of its scales, do you? You think of its speed, its floating, flashing body seen through the water… If I made fins and eyes and scales, I would arrest its movement, give a pattern or shape of reality. I want just the flash of its spirit. ~ Constantin Brancusi
Silhouette is the theme for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge . I immediately thought of one of my all time favorite silhouette photos, one I took at the Palace of the Popes in Avignon, France. It was such a massive, solid structure and I love the contrast of the fragile rose silhouetted in the window.
Beatutiful Rose at the Pope’s Palace in Avignon France
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

My second photo is the silhouette of a palm tree with part of my wedding bouquet in the foreground. It was such a beautiful, special day and I love the way this photo captures the occassion and the location!

There’s a big difference between falling in love with someone and falling in love with someone and getting married. Usually, after you get married, you fall in love with the person even more. ~ Dave Grohl

This week, the Weekly Photo Challenge asks us to “Show us something you love. It could be your favorite novel, the light of the moon on your deck at night, the beach on a hot day, or that special you-know-who.”. In response to the challenge, here are photos of what I love most: my kiddos, my new hubby and my papillon! I also love sandy beaches, palm trees and the ocean, and was able to combine them in the first few :)
I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive. ~Gilda Radner

Getting a hug from my hubby on our Wedding Day!
I can’t take credit for the second submission for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. It was taken by my dad years and years ago. My daughter reminded me of it when I told her the challenge for this week was “container”.
An old photo, but I will always love this one!
I have always thought this was an incredibly cool picture, making it look as if my younger sister is inside this bottle and I am peering down at her. I hope you enjoy it! Make sure to click on the link above to see many more interpretations of this week’s photo challenge!
