This week’s WordPress photo challenge is about the topic of renewal. This pair of common sparrows is a wonderful demonstration that nature is all about renewal. It was a renewing activity watching their joy in the water on a hot summer day.

This week’s photo challenge is guest hosted by Quintin Lake of Quintin Lake Architectural Photography.
‘This challenge is about the shapes and rhythms that make up the geometry of our world. Many photographs of any genre have an underlying sense of geometry, but I often like to make this the main subject of my work. I think it’s the most important aspect of a photograph’s success. This could be the patterns of the natural world up close and personal, or the rhythm of your local buildings.’
This is a second installment on the weekly challenge. However, this morning we were pulling out of a parking lot in a semi-developed area and it was so startling to see this bird silhouetted in the tree — I had to stop and take a photo.
Was he welcoming the rising sun from a tree instead of waiting in the dark on his normal grounded habitat?

In the U.S. we do not have the castles and cathedrals of Europe. However, the wealthy George Vanderbilt created the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina, which is a huge and amazing place. It was overwhelming and gorgeous. I would be hard put to say what was my favorite piece of our tours. The outside was overwhelming, the inside was fascinating, and the gardens were gorgeous.
This post was inspired by the WordPress weekly Photo Challenge: Big.
A few things that make me happy:
- Homemade cookies
- Fresh brewed ice tea
- The Florida Keys
- A personal relationship with nature (and dolphins!)
This post is a response to WordPress weekly Photo Challenge: a collage of things that make me Happy.
Note: the graduation photo was taken by a friend using my camera. The dolphin photo was taken by a photographer hired by the Swim with Dolphins company in the Florida Keys.
