Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

21 Mar

Happy Friday everyone. I am looking forward to these weekend because I get to head to the Coast for a bit. Before I go I thought I would leave you with some photographs of flower. I took these last summer at Lewis & Clark College, where I attended college. I go running at Lewis & Clark every week and last summer I managed to arrive about an hour early.

I almost always find photography to be an outlet and time for reflection and for some reason being at my Alma mater really makes me start reflecting on the past ten years of my life since graduating. During my time at Lewis & Clark I had the privilege of going overseas to Kenya and Tanzania.

While I was there the Twin Towers and Pentagon were attacked. I have to say that reflecting back on that time, I can really see how lucky I was to be where I was during that attack.

I have a completely different perspective than most Americans about that event and the direction our country has taken since.

beeeating1Have a wonderful weekend, I hope you find some time for reflection this weekend. 🙂 You can connect up with the WordPress weekly photo challenge also if you want to join in the fun. 🙂

 

 

Little Yellow Tree

13 Nov

 

Lacamas Lake is surrounded by large evergreen trees and boasts miles of hiking paths that can take you as far as down town Camas. Tucked within these evergreens are a growing number of deciduous trees that are most visible during the fall when their colors are in contrast with the evergreens. This small yellow tree was one such tree.

I would love to go on a trip to the East coast during the fall some year (maybe to visit my extended family) and see the trees changing color there.
