The Pocono Manor Inn

Today’s weekly challenge is AMBIENCE.

Every time I enter the Pocono Manor Inn I feel its special atmosphere.

Below is a photo I selected for the challenge.

Is rain a painter?

TRANSMOGRIFY

This week WordPress Photo Challenge is transmogrify. It means:

“To change in appearance or form, especially strangely or grotesquely; transform.”

We know that rain used by many artists and photographers to show force of nature, its beauty, its life force.

The first picture below shows rain from the window of the 25th floor in Hollywood, Florida.

It’s darker outside, there is a lot of water on the floor of the loggia. However, there is nothing strange or grotesque in this picture.

The second picture shows a shot of rain on the floor of the loggia. I made it in black and white to strengthen the impression that all drops of rain created.

Here everything changed completely. There is a picture with many circular and non-circular shapes, there are eyes that look at you and judge you.

Hopefully, all eyes are friendly.

SHINE

I saw all of a sudden that there were sparkles on the surface of the ocean. I felt peace and excitement at the same time.

Fortunately, my tiny Canon was with me.

Nature is terrific and life is wonderful (despite some problems we all have)!

Ways in Rego Park Center

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – October 19, 2016

Rego Park Center is not far from where we live. It is several levels mall between two streets.

Costco located below the street level and you can get there only by elevator. Elevators also allow to go to any other level.

There are bridges between sides of the Center on every level.

It is possible also to go to the street level from the level above by escalator.

Brave people (none on the picture) use stairs.

Three problems.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: White Flowers

1. I am color-blind.

2. I missed many Cee’s challenges.

3. I don’t know names of majority of flowers.

However, I decided to take part in the old CFFC as I hope that I

do know what white is. I also hope that I am right that there is a lot of

light and dark green on the photo below.

By the way, how these white flowers are called?

Long-term nostalgia

NOSTALGIA

I am 82. My childhood was very short due to the war.

That’s why it is long-term nostalgia.

Fishing

FUN

One bright sunny morning I saw far away three fishermen who enjoyed themselves in a very dangerous place: on the edge of the pond in the middle of the 18th tee of the Pocono Manor golf course.

Fortunately, some golf balls were flying in my direction and they were safe at that moment.

I photographed the fishermen and went away thinking about love between generations and wonders of new discoveries.

I don’t know if there are fishes in the pond but I am sure that there are hundreds of golf balls in it.
