This is a photo of my father-in-law with our dog Cookie resting on his chest.  He lived at home as a hospice patient and this photo was taken two days before he died. I think that it conveys the serenity that he had in his mind and heart during his final days.

I realize that the background in my photo for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette might be distracting but I like its ethereal quality and the way that it mimics that same quality in the silhouetted flowers in the foreground.

Here is the texture photo I was originally looking for as my contribution to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture. It is a photo of the inside of the cover of our old gas grill and comes complete with plenty of texture:).

This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is Texture. I immediately thought of a couple of my photos, but when I started looking through my Lightroom Catalog I ran into this photo of dried grass, which shows quite a bit of texture.

I happen to have the good fortune to witness a Triple Zig Zag last year when I was visiting family in Oregon. We were staying in a place that located near Zig Zag, Oregon and while in Zig Zag I happened to be looking at Zig Zag Mountain when a cloud began to zig and zag its way down the side of the mountain. The experience is memorialized in the photo shown below:)  It shows: (1) a zig zagging cloud (2) flowing down Zig Zag Mountain (3) in Zig Zag, Oregon. The “Triple Zig Zag” is my contribution to this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Zig Zag.

My second contributions to this week’ s Weekly Photo Challenge: Split-Second Story  comes in two, you might call them flavors. Both concern the same baby ducklings and the same momma duck. I think the photos tells the tale with some immediacy — don’t get too close I’ve got my eye on you — but it is up to the viewer to judge.Ducklings - May 31, 2014 - 392

I have two contributions to this week’ s Weekly Photo Challenge: Split Second Story. My first involves the immature Bald Eagle shown here and the split second is a very small fraction of one as the eagle is poised to strike the water hoping to catch its primary food source, a fish. This eagle was successful but somewhere between 80%-90% of such efforts are not.
