Weekly Photo Challenge: “Extra, Extra”

by Miki Kuwabara

This week, we are challenged to share a photo that has a little something extra…for example, an unexpected visitor, or a tranquil landscape with a splash of color.

While taking a stroll outside of a shopping center, I spotted 2 unexpected visitors who provided lovely splashes of color in a tranquil fountain area!

 

Extra, Extra!

Extra, Extra!

At first glance, Mr. & Mrs. Duck seem to be enjoying a nice swim. But upon closer inspection, I find something extra funny! Each duck is resting on a fountain head!

Resting my webbies.

Me too.

Me too.

Weekly Photo Challenge: “Split-Second Story”

by Miki Kuwabara

This week, bloggers are challenged to “tell a story by documenting a moment in time through a single image”.

In this scene, you can see beach-goers as they gather around fire-pits to share stories, enjoy camaraderie, and admire a beautiful sunset. The historic Huntington Beach pier (site of the world famous U.S. Open of Surfing) is in the background.
