Resilient

Tags : 

Joan of Arc, or should I say Saint Joan, was also known as The Maid of Orleans for her role in helping King Charles II liberate France from British rule. She truly is the epitome of resilience, which is this week’s photo challenge. She received visions from Archangel Michael, Saint Margaret and Saint Catherine of Alexandria

Weekly Photo Challenge – New Horizon

Tags : 

I love being outside when it’s warm, feeling the sun or breeze on my face, smelling the flowers or the ocean depending on where I happen to be. However, in the winter time, I am exactly the opposite, I hate being outside. I don’t care for the cold or snow and choose to spend my

In The Trenches

I cannot imagine what it must have been like to have been on the front lines during either of the World Wars. I cannot imagine what it must have been like to have simply lived during that time for that matter. The ‘Battle of Britain’ in 1940, when the German and British air forces battled

Weekly Photo Challenge – Narrow

Tags : 

My daughter took this photo as the Snowbirds flew overhead at the end of their show, which was held in St. Thomas, Ontario about a month ago now. There aren’t any smoke trails in the shot, because they were heading back to the local base to land. I thought this image was perfect for this

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

Tags : 

The photo challenge for this week was to find a subject and instead of taking a picture from the usual angles, take it directly from above. This is my contribution (image cropped for blog layout), the top of my head. I literally held the camera as far as I could reach above my head and

Weekly Photo Challenge – Curve

Tags : 

I created this image from an original photograph of the Three Muses, Drama (Calliope), Comedy (Thalia) and Tragedy (Melpomene), who represent and adorn the entrance of the National Drama Theatre in Vilnius, Lithuania. Located on Gediminas Ave, the theatre is considered a landmark of Vilnius city and is one of Lithuania’s most prominent publicly funded art

Billie Holiday a Jazz Legend

Tags : 

Billie Holiday, born over a century ago, was one of the best jazz singers of all time. Even with her limited vocal range she used her unique timing and framing to create an amazing mellow sound with the ability to move her listeners. “I don’t think I ever sing the same way twice. The blues

The Iris – Inspiration for the Fleur-de-lis

Tags : 

The name Iris relates back to the Greek Goddess Iris, who was the messenger of the Gods. She personified a rainbow acting as a link between heaven and earth. The Greeks would plant a purple Iris on the graves of women, in hope that the Goddess would escort their souls safely on their journey to heaven.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Mother Earth

Tags : 

I love to travel and only wish, like most of us, that I had the financial resources and freedom to travel more.  We live on a beautiful planet and even though I have not seen her many wonders with my own eyes, I have seen photos and enjoyed reading about the natural beauty this Earth

Weekly Photo Challenge – Future

Tags : 

When I was thinking about the future for this week’s challenge, for some odd reason I thought of the saying ‘when my ship comes in’. If your ship has come in, it means something very good has happened to you. I believe it’s origin is based on an old sea merchant term, when you used to pay

Weekly Photo Challenge – Harmony

Tags : 

When I think of harmony, outside of a beautiful melody, I think of peace. If you can learn to maintain a true sense of peace within, no matter what is going on around you, I believe that a harmonious life would be your reward. There are many symbols which have been used to represent peace

Weekly Photo Challenge – Time

Tags : 

When I saw this week’s challenge I instantly thought that the only time that really matters is the present moment. Which in turn brought to mind an image I created last year about being one with the universe. Connecting with the Universe doesn’t require some special tool, knowledge or spiritual practice, it is experienced simply by being
