The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is Horizon — that special place in space where the earth meets the sky in the distance. The horizon image above was taken just south of Scripps Pier in La Jolla, California shortly after sunset. See more horizons at the WordPress Photo Challenge page. Advertisements
Yesterday Kongo took advantage of an absolutely glorious October Sunday to spend a few hours in New York’s Central Park. The weather was warm but every once in a while a cool, chilling breeze chased along the paths, reminding everyone of colder days ahead. Maple trees were particularly spectacular. Sycamores had already lost most of their leaves. A huge Breast Cancer Walk added plenty of activities and noise with a band, banging drums, and splashes of pink everywhere.
So Kongo is back in New York City for another weekend and after riding the Acela up from Philadelphia he headed over to the Brooklyn Bridge. He’s wanted to shoot some images from the pedestrian walkway on the bridge for a couple of years but never seemed to have the time before. Travel Safe, Have fun
When Kongo read about Ailsa’s travel theme this week he immediately thought of the adobe buildings in New Mexico. The image above was taken in Santa Fe in July during an early morning photo shoot. See more brown images at Ailsa’s Where’s My Backpack.
This week the WordPress Photo Challenge is The Hue of You, designed to focus those who accept the challenge to focus on different hues of light. Kongo took this image last weekend from the balcony of a rented beach house in Carlsbad, California where this group on the beach took in the sunset hues of orange and purple.
This weeks photo challenge is INFINITE and Kongo’s entry is this covered promenade in Paris which seems to go on forever. See more infinite images at the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.
This clutch of rare California Least Terns hang out on a beach in Carlsbad, California. Normally these birds are well on their way to South America by the end of August but it IS a pretty beach and Kongo understands why they might want to linger. These birds are on the federal endangered species list.
