Photo101: Connect

IMG_2894.JPG

Today’s theme is “connect” and we were provided with a short discussion on social media and connection. Most of us have felt real connection; as a rock climber the rope is much more than a safety line it is a visceral symbol of trust.

Social media rarely reaches this depth. I was trying to find an image that portrayed a real connection along with something less robust. In this case a fake cobweb (lots of fine weak strands) left over from Halloween draped over the chain (fewer stronger connections) of a swinging bench on our porch.

Photo101: Water

Living in Denver has greatly changed my relationship with water. I no longer see the effect of the moon and its daily and seasonal connection with the tides. I do not see how weather can whip oceans into a frenzy. I have though seen this lazy autumnal scene rage after days of rain and I dream of traveling in boats. Like a child I also change the scale of this creek and wonder how my Lilliputian craft would fare.

Photo101:Home

In an attempt to restart a blogging habit I am taking part in a month long WordPress photography class. Here goes.

I am happiest; when like a snail, my home is on my back and the view is this good.

This was taken on the Continental Divide descending James Peak, North of Berthoud Pass, CO last month. Sunsets up high are great as are the dark stumbling adventures that follow them.
