“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” –Henry David Thoreau
You can take a photo of anything and it can be beautiful. It all depends on what you see. My daughter plays piano and I am just fascinated by her beautiful dainty hands when I watch her play. I have no idea how she manages to keep all those keys straight without looking at them while reading the music. She’s got amazing talent, but she works at it too. These little hands on all those keys are music not only to my ears but my eyes as well.
Loved the lines of this museum ceiling and the shadows cast by the lighting. The geometric shapes make for an interesting photo.
Does it make you a little dizzy? 😀
All aboard! This is just a glimpse of the beautiful scenery from the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad on our stop in Skagway, Alaska. We rode a shuttle bus up to the summit which borders Canada and then rode the train back to town. This railroad passage was built during the Klondike Gold Rush and is an International Civil Engineering Landmark. Amazing stuff when you learn about all the people and horses that gave their lives to build it and how others survived the winters. If you’d like to read more about it, check out the WP&YR website.
This is my last stop in Alaska for a bit. I am thinking of submitting this photo for a contest they are having, what do you think?
A tree stump seen on a hike during a visit to Palo Duro Canyon. I love the texture of the wood and how twisted and jagged it is, as if nature wrung it out to dry after having used it all up. It’s still beautiful to me.
