Weekly Photo Challenge: Oceans

Well, I don’t live near the ocean, or at least not so near that I make frequent jaunts to the shore.  This challenge requires some creativity.  I have photos of oceans of flowers, oceans of fields and forests, oceans of books, etc.  If one thinks outside the box even a little bit, one can come up with a multitude of oceans waiting to be photographed.  As it turns out  however, I didn’t wander too far from the literal meaning of the word “oceans”. . .but I did wander.  Mothers’ Day 2009, one of my daughters flew me to Chicago to spend the weekend with my children and grandchild who live there.  Mothers’ Day was glorious and a trip to “that big lake” by Chicago seemed in order.  Following are a few snapshots recording our time at “the ocean.”  Enjoy.

  1. Beautiful photos! They inspire relaxation. Especially the last one. I also like the one with the bench in the foreground.
    Oh.. and I like the theme you are using now. I too change it on my other blog rather often 🙂

    1. Thanks, Marina. I got so many great shots that weekend in Chicago that I had trouble picking just a few. Wish all photo shoots were as productive. Glad you like the new theme, too. I finally found one I’m sticking with for a while.

    1. Thanks! Fortunately it was a gorgeous day, especially since I was visiting for the weekend only. Hoping to get back up there this Mothers’ Day. Thanks for stopping by and for pausing to leave a comment. Much appreciated.

  2. I just got TRAFFIC LOVE
    5,000 hits after I read your post on my blog.
    I like this theme but the text needs to be bold… or maybe I need better glasses…LOL
    Love it either way.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Jackie

    1. Thanks, Kim. I’m with you; wishing I could be there now. . .wait. . .that’s Chicago! Maybe I’d rather be at a sunny beach in warmer climes right now! 🙂 At any rate, thanks for stopping by and for taking time to comment. Have a great day!

  3. Interesting batch of minimalist photos where the washed out colours of the beach hardware contrast with the beautiful blues of the sea and the sky.
