This week I am going to share a couple of my dad’s amazing photographs from Hawaii. He sends me pictures periodically, and these came through just in time for this week’s photo challenge! We might make it to Hawaii someday, but until then, we will enjoy it through the eyes of my dad. Enjoy. 🙂
“Honolulu at night”
“Happy” is a beautiful fall day just perfect for taking a walk in the woods.
“Happy” is a stroll down the trail, enjoying all that nature has to offer.
“Happy” is hanging out with your brother, because even though he drives you crazy and you want to strangle him most of the time, he really is pretty cool.
“Happy” is watching a loved one master a new skill, like starting a fire without matches, something Rob has been wanting to do for quite some time.
“Happy” is a tasty lunch, grilled to perfection over an open flame. The smell of the campfire is an added bonus.
“Happy” is a day spent with family, exploring and learning together.
“Happy” is watching the sun slowly set over the lake, knowing that it was a day well spent.
“Happy” is… knowing that you are surrounded by those you love. Always.
Nothing like flying off together into the setting sun…
For Valentine’s Day, Rob surprised me with a new lens for the camera. Anxious to try out my new zoom/macro, we went down to the river on a sunny evening. There were two geese hanging out together on the edge of the ice. Normally if I were to get close enough to take their picture, they would turn and walk or swim away, leaving me with a nice view of their back ends. But with my new lens, I was able to sit back on the grass and take pictures without bothering the geese. They reminded me of an old married couple, sitting on their porch, enjoying the sunset together.
Thank you for the wonderful gift, Honey!! I sure do love you. 🙂
