This is Part 2 of Cee’s 5-Week Chinese Elements Challenge. This week the focus is on “water”. These are my contributions:
My husband and I took a week and went to Honolulu, Hawaii, for our 1st wedding anniversary back in 1999. This photo was taken from our lanai overlooking Waikiki Beach (taken with a Kodak 110 film camera!). I can still feel the warmth of the sun and remember the cool nights watching the moon & stars as we sipped Blue Hawaiian drinks and shared a chocolate volcano brownie.
In 2001 I had an opportunity to fly to Anchorage, Alaska, for a week’s stay with my daughter and son-in-law. This photo captures both water and ice/snow from the mountains in the background. It was Thanksgiving time when I visited, and icy cold! But the sightseeing drive from Anchorage down to the coastal Seward, Alaska, was invigorating!
This final submission was snapped in Charlotte, North Carolina, during their spring blossom time. I took a trip down with my sister-in-law for a few days and she enjoyed taking me sightseeing for photo ops. As soon as I saw this sweet little pond near a strip mall, I was taken, and got several photos from different locations/angles. Even the resident green heron didn’t mind me getting him in on the action!
I’m an absolute idiot for water ~ fresh, salt or even frozen! Thanks for this challenge, Cee!
