A Word A Week Photography Challenge: Undulate (wavey/ripple)

A Word a Week Challenge this week is Undulate (wavy/ripple). I love all things undulate, and for this challenge I chose to feature undulating water, sand and architecture.

A Word A Week Challenge: Yellow

A word a week challenge this week is “Yellow.” But the question is, what would happen to blue if everybody preferred yellow? 🙂

A Word A Week Photograph Challenge: Wind

On a late afternoon last September, as I strolled along the Boardwalk in Venice Beach looking for interesting stuff to photograph, strong Santa Ana winds started howling through the area, creating havoc on the boardwalk. Stalls and merchandise went flying around, sand quickly covered the sidewalk, sea birds flew away from the shore, and folks decided it was time to call it a day. I managed to snap these photos before things got out of hand.DSC_0408
