I love this week’s theme from the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. There are so many opportunities to capture people in the midst of their everyday lives. What do you see in your life? Here are things I saw on a recent trip to San Francisco and back here at home.

Mobile phones are a big part of everyday life

Last Saturday I posted a photo showing the Minneapolis Queen paddle wheeler. Sunday I went out on a boat on Lake Minnetonka with friends. I kept watching the waves being created by the boat. At some point, I thought of this photo challenge. I pulled out my cell phone to snap a few photos. Here’s a sampling of some photos I took.

I’d say these have definitely captured the theme of movement. I had no idea what quality I’d get by using a cell phone and traveling along at a fairly rapid clip on a boat. They came out surprisingly well. I posted these four because they show a variety of movement. Do you have a favorite?

A new weekly photo challenge will be posted on Friday. If you’re interested, you can find more information here: Weekly Photo Challenge on The Daily Post at WordPress.

A Different View of a Sunset

The docks at White Bear Lake at sunset.

Sometimes the best view of a sunset is where the sun is striking an object or objects. One recent evening I found the setting sun lighting up these docks on White Bear Lake. The silver and gray docks against the blue water created an eye-catching contrast. The wind was fierce and I wasn’t sure I’d be able to keep my small camera steady enough for the shot. Fortunately, I was able to snap a couple of photos that captured the silvery light reflecting off the docks.

I was browsing through some photos in the archives last night and came upon this one. I thought it fit this challenge quite well.

It’s a full sun afternoon and I have time for fun. I went out with my camera because this is what all passionate photographers do. Here are more “sun” captures. Let me know if you have a favorite. You might need  your sunglasses for this first one.

Photo of the Day
November 23, 2011

Tomorrow is the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States. Many people will be traveling. Others will be staying put and gathering with family and/or friends for the day. Regardless of where you’ll be, I offer this photograph as an opportunity to have a peaceful minute of beauty and reflection.

Thanksgiving is a day when people often think or discuss what they’re grateful for in life. An article in the The New York Times yesterday offered this on the topic:

Cultivating an “attitude of gratitude” has been linked to better health, sounder sleep, less anxiety and depression, higher long-term satisfaction with life and kinder behavior toward others, including romantic partners.

That’s plenty of reasons to be grateful. I’m grateful you’re reading this post and taking a one minute holiday. Let’s spread the heath benefits of gratitude! Share what you’re grateful for by using the Comment link below.
