Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Trail

Cee’s Black and White Challenge this week is Walking Paths and Trails.

The theme transported me back in time, to 2013, when I was exploring South America. I crossed the Andes Mountains from Argentina into Chile, but took some time to explore the Andes along the way.  Continue reading “Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Trail”

Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Baku Modernity

I’m fresh off the plane after a one week adventure in Moldova, Georgia, and Azerbaijan. While I get back on a regular sleeping pattern and sort through my photos, here are some snapshots of an architectural highlight from my trip:

The Heydar Aliyev Center in Baku, Azerbaijan. The Center was designed by Zaha Hadid and was completed in 2012.

The Center is a symbol of modernity surrounded by a green public space; standing in front of it, staring up, I couldn’t help but feel like I had been transported into the future. Continue reading “Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Baku Modernity”

Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Letters S or T

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is designed for subjects that start with the letters S or T. I dug into my photo archives for this one… back to the afternoon in summer 2015 that I stumbled upon a group of swing dancers in Washington, DC’s historic Dupont Circle.

Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Letters C or D

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is designed for subjects that start with the letters C and/or D. Oh, the possibilities!

This is one of my favorite city views, in one of my favorite cities.

You can take an elevator to the top of Coit Tower to get 360 degree views of the City by the Bay. If you face West (as in the photo directly above), you are greeted by views of North Beach (Little Italy) and the Golden Gate Bridge. Face South (as in the very top photo) and see the Embarcadero, Financial District, and the Bay Bridge.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Perspective

My initiatory Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge post takes me back to last summer, when I visited Charleston, South Carolina in the dead of summer.

A short drive out of downtown on the way to Folly Beach, you’ll find (what is suspected to be) the oldest living tree in the U.S., the Angel Oak Tree. The Angel Oak Tree is estimated to be between 400 and 500 years old. Find more facts on the tree here. The visitors, like me, stood back and marveled at the tree before moving in closer between the intertwined branches for a closer inspection.
