This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post is for the topic:



Here’s what the host had to say about it:

For this week’s challenge, explore the classical elements of earth, air, water, and fire. How do you capture something invisible like air, or the movement of water? Or, more personally, is there a place you go to feel connected to the earth? Take a moment to explore these elements, in or out of balance, together or individually, as you pick up your camera this week.


Here’s my take on it:

FIRE in the sky:

METAL siding:

Sculpted WOOD:

Rolling WATER:

Our slice of EARTH:


My songs of the day are:

“Holdin’ On To Black Metal” by My Morning Jacket

“Water” by Jack Garratt

“Balsa Wood Bones” by Saint Motel

“Fan The Fire” by Earth, Wind, & Fire

“What The Water Gave Me” by Florence + The Machine

“Falling Off The Face Of The Earth” by Neil Young

“Metal Postcard (Mittageisan)” by Siouxsie & The Banshees

“Fire On The Mountain” by The Grateful Dead

  3. That carved eagle reminds me of something so so stupid… but I will share anyway. My gram had this really fancy eagle carved from wood in her house. I have no idea why… but there it was. One Thanksgiving, my uncle was looking in its direction and I said, “yeah, I carved that.” And he believed me. Until the following Easter when we were there again and I told him I totally made that up. 😀

    I told you it was a stupid story. I was, like, 12. 🙂

  4. Love that last one. There’s a metaphor for life there…or a Stephen King novel. One or the other!
