Sweet Creek Falls

Amazing Photography~

My World through a Lens

Driving up toward Canada on the North Pend Oreille Scenic byway one of the many scenic stops along the way is Sweet Creek Falls rest area.  We first went to the lower falls then decided to climb to the upper falls.  There was one more trail but we just weren’t up for it that day but definitely next time.  It’s a beautiful side trip tucked away in the middle of nowhere.  I took tons of pictures and these are some of my favorites.

Draw a Bird Day reminder: Friday, May 8!

Drawing Challenge 🙂 Great Post.

Create art every day


Thanks to A-Wing and A-Way letting so many of us know about Draw A Bird Day on April 8, many of us had fun drawing or painting birds on April 8.  Some drew a bird for the first time, and found it be lots of fun!  However, many people weren’t aware of the holiday until it was too late.  So, some of us decided it might be fun to make this a monthly event!   I also want to thank Squirrel Writer for helping to spread the word!

For my friends who may not be comfortable with drawing:  Do not let this sideline you, if you are interested in participating!  Anything goes:  Photographs, stories or poems about a bird, a little sculpture, a nature collage, you are only limited by your imagination.  I think what we’re trying to do here is open the cage door and let the birdies fly. …

A Promise (5 Images)

Petals Unfolding

A promise is a promise
and nothing would deter me
from delivering my promise …
not water nor mud,

LR edited (1 of 1)-3
not wind nor rain.

LR edited (1 of 1)-2
So a white chair I did fetch
to carefully stand upon

LR edited (1 of 1)
to bring to Cynthia
captures of my Spring.
These are for you, Cynthia,
and for all of you who still have
barely any Spring in sight.

You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.
+++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++
If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain.
+++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++
The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.

Which is your favourite quote by Maya Angelou?  🙂

2012 On My Mobile Phone

Amazing Blog! Please go check it out :0)

Edward Echwalu - Documentary Photographer

The United States economy is nine times the size of Africa’s, but Africa has twice as many mobile phones according to Harvard Business Review (HBR).

Visually, Africa’s story is silently being told through these little gadgets. Unfortunately, many will remain as such. Silent.01

I am a perfect example on how good stories are photographed and stashed because they were taken on a mobile phone.

No wonder the only other thing more personal in my possession except my mind is a mobile phone. And that in itself underlines how important this tool is, not just in my personal life but professional one as well.02

Not until 15 months ago, a mobile phone to me was about making calls, texting and storing relevant phone contacts. And yes, playing some games too. That role however has drastically changed as i professionally grew as a photographer.03

Today I see a mobile phone as a…
