I enjoy putting my own take on the photo theme & not taking the prompt in the immediate literal sense. This photo is about scale but in the realm of comparisons of near and far. As I walked the Camino de Santiago with a friend in 2013, we came upon these signs sometime after Pamplona. We were most concerned with Santiago, 220 km away but still way closer than Jerusalem at 5000 km!
There are many more, but these are a few of my favorites.
If you drive west outside of Taos, New Mexico, you will pass by a development of “Earthships” or radically sustainable buildings made from layers of recycled materials. they are also artistic wonders. Also tucked in the New Mexico landscape, there are individual artists that share the same vision.
I caught these images on concrete during the recent total eclipse in Oregon. As the moon covered the sun, the image in the sky was projected on the ground in the shadows of leaves. It was spellbinding.
My take on the prompt- & the cows in Ireland are so photogenic….
As I travel in Ireland I’ve been so impressed by the order & symmetry within the original design of the ruins. Below are shots from the Moyne and Rosserk Abbeys.
Last November I took a walk with two friends at the Mendenhall Glacier just out of Juneau, Alaska. The day was cold, clear, crisp & the winter shadows long.
