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.

Photo101: Home

It begins with Home. This is the first theme we were given for the Photography 101 Bloggers U.

Even in the most challenging environment, in this case the floor of the Kilauea Iki Crater which last erupted in 1959, a seed from the ‘Ohi’a tree, nestled in and began to thrive. It found a home.

Photo101 Blogging U Challenge

I am very excited to participate in the WordPress Blogging U Photography 101 photo challenge. During the month of November (beginning tomorrow, November 3) I will be posting a photo every day on my blog; the image to be inspired by a different theme provided each day and will be tagged “Photo101.”

This dovetails nicely with my desire to work on becoming a better photographer. With focused practice and learning tips and tricks from other participants, my fingers are crossed for good results.

If you want to follow the challenge on WordPress, you can see all the participants’ submissions by tagging “Photo101” in your reader.
