Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

WordPress’ weekly photo challenge this week is “Green.” Green happens to be my favorite color – because I am Irish? Perhaps!

When I think of green, I think of rainforests, springtime, nature and Latin America. These are a few photos from ziplining through a rainforest in Nicaragua that I think really highlight the color green.

We were told these little guys were pretty poisionous, but I couldn’t help snapping a shot.

Travel Theme: Flowers and Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside and Purple

Copyright JC Politi Photography

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

Carl Jung

Where’s your backpack’s travel theme this week just happens to be one of my very favorite things to photograph – flowers! And WordPress’ Photo Challenge last week was inside and this week is purple. I thought I would combine the three and look at flowers and their insides – especially purple flowers!

What do you think? What is your favorite thing to photograph? And what is your favorite flower?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer

This is a little off-topic, since I usually write about the news of the day, but WordPress has a fun weekly photo challenge and I would like to start taking part. For those who do not know, while I love writing, photography is actually my first and deepest love. Besides, eventually I have to learn how to post images on my blog so I can try to make it a little more visually interesting for my many readers. 🙂

With that in mind, I am going to post one or two of my photos which make me think of summer and today, one of my recent poems to accompany the photos. I have been so inspired by my fellow bloggers that I am starting to finally feel comfortable putting some of my more creative writing out there – so thank you all for the inspiration and encouragement!

For those looking for news of the day, I promise to get back to that tomorrow. But for the day before a long weekend, here goes…

Summer

Lawnmowers in the distance
giggling children from afar

Planes flying overhead
memories of sunny days at the shore

Time for a bike ride
the smell of spring flowers

Wishing for a real summer break
where I could while away the hours

Swimming, hiking, camping
with sunscreen my only worry

Somehow, in summer
there is much less need to hurry

Pretty summer dresses
hemlines above the knees

Sitting on the back porch
hoping for a breeze

To blow me into Fall
which has its beauty too

And snowy winters,
lead to Spring when everything is new

Have a relaxing Memorial Day weekend!
