Today’s photography challenge is to photograph something smooth. In my jewellery box I found this brooch, given to me by a patient at the dental office where I worked before retiring. I’m sorry to say I can’t remember his name, but I do remember his face clearly. he had the firmest handshake of anyone I’d ever met. I know he’d once been in the navy, because he’d shared a photo of himself, in his naval uniform with me and my co-workers. He was a much older man by that time, and was learning lapidary, the art of cutting, polishing, and engraving stones. I’m taking part in this photography challenge to improve my photo taking skills, but today I was reminded of someone I haven’t thought about in years.
Photographs taken in the morning are usually beautiful and today was no exception. I took this one during my early morning walk. There is a big storm brewing in Baja California, and we are seeing the effects, with higher than usual humidity and interesting cloud cover.
I’m always amazed at how empty the streets are early in the morning.

Once back home, I had a nice bowl of oatmeal, banana, and a few Brazil nuts. So good. Today’s photo challenge topic was morning. I think I covered it. Tomorrow the challenge is to photograph something smooth.
Photographing a glass elephant fulfilled today’s photo challenge that I am participating in.The suggestion this time was to photograph an animal, so I took a photo of the glass elephant my husband received when he retired from Cal State Fullerton. I did a little editing using Aviary, a photo editing app that I really like using.
This is the same glass elephant from above. I like abstract photography and this certainly can be called that. I had fun creating these two photographs. Hope you enjoy seeing them. The photography challenge subject for tomorrow is GRASS.

Later I found this photo which I’d taken in a Mission Viejo park.
After finding several more photos of stairs, I began thinking about my fascination with stairs. Continue reading
