Thematic Photographic - Cloudy

Fell off the face of the earth for a few weeks. First, as a result of doing something careless and dangerous, I took a fall and hurt my knee. Won't know the extent of the damage for another week when I finally have a follow-up appointment with the othropaedic doc who will review an MRI of my injured knee. I do know at a minimum, I dislocated my kneecap. Ouch.

Double ouch that I hurt my knee five days before I was expected to fly to O'ahu Hawai'i with my daughter and a group of her friends for a week in paradise. Wasn't sure if I was going to be able to make it but I packed my suitcase and took my bum knee on vacation.

Which brings me to these pictures which I'm posting for Carmi's Thematic Photographic challenge this week of cloudy. These are all photos I took on my trip to Hawai'i. Even with a bum knee, it was an amazing trip.

Thematic Photographic - Dusk

I'm at the tail end of Thematic Photographic this week as usual. But I love Carmi's theme of "dusk" so much that I decided not to let this one pass.

Dusk is truly one of my favorite times of day. A peaceful time. The coolness of the day. The muted colors. The amazing sky. Ahhhhh. I just love to take a deep breath and take it all in.

I was going to try to pick a favorite one of these photos but I couldn't. Maybe you'll have a favorite - leave me comment and let me know.

Now I'm off to enjoy my favorite time of day.

You can enjoy dusk anytime of day, here
