I’m back from my technology-free vacation. I didn’t take my computer with me, didn’t watch a minute of television, and I read a real honest-to-goodness paper book. It was heaven.
Sarah, over at Art Expedition, offered up a 7-day B&W street photo challenge of people. Well… erm… here are my 7 color, non-people, no streets, nature photos of my trip. Sorry, Sarah, for not following the rules
very well at all. I encourage everyone to browse her lovely artful blog and give her challenge a hearty try.
I’ve lived in Oregon for 7 years and haven’t explored this big state. It was about time. Randy and I traveled downstate into the dense smoke of forest fires, detoured to the Pacific coast and headed north in the fog. So much for “seeing” the state. But I gathered a few photo-memories nevertheless.
We hiked along silver rivers…
We traveled on to Crater Lake. Looking down from the crater’s rim, you can see the thick blanket of smoke. Yes, that dark layer in the background isn’t land – it’s solid smoke.
The view of the lake was hazy with light smoke.
With scratchy throats and eyes, we headed for the coast. The Oregon shore is cold, windy and foggy.
And a B&W picture of a person… still no street.
I’m doing the princess wave by the waves.
I have a ton of catching up to do, but I shall visit you all shortly. ❤
