Photo101: The Natural World

We have been awed by the natural world here on Hawaii; from the tranquil beauty of the ocean to the fiery advances of the lava flow. Everywhere we look, we are amazed.

The water in this lagoon was so crystal clear that when the green sea turtle slowly swam by it was almost as if we were looking through glass.

Photo101: Landmark

I’ve reached back into my archives for today’s theme word. These photos, of San Diego’s new main library, were taken earlier this year. The unique architecture of the building encourages exploration and provides lovely vistas of the city and the bay.

I was intrigued by the architect’s inspired use of a wide variety of materials in this landmark structure.

Photo101: Bliss

Bliss is all around us in Hawaii; it’s hard to choose an image to best illustrate the theme.

I took this photo today on the beach in Waipi’o Valley. The fifty or so people who live here have no power, water, sewage, phones, cell or TV coverage. But, somehow, they have all they need.
