Weekly Photo Challenge: Makeup Wave

Makeup Swirl

This week’s challenge calls for something abstract, and I remembered something I saw at recently at the Macy’s Flower show. This isn’t just some random flow of colors; it’s a rather cleverly-designed makeup display for Dior. A larger version is viewable here.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mediterranean Afterglow

Mediterranean Afterglow

This week’s challenge is all about harmony, and I instantly thought of my last day at sea. The cloudy skies, the colors, the chill of the open Mediterranean…it all came together for an unusual – but utterly gorgeous – moment in my adventure. A larger version is viewable here.

Arriving At Villefranche

This week’s challenge calls for something vibrant, and I immediately flashed back to the waterfront in Villefranche-sur-Mer. It may not have been the most epic part of the trip, but it was the most colorful. A larger version is viewable here.

Pier 7 Reflections

Here’s one of the last photos I took during the Global Photo Walk in San Francisco. This section of the waterfront is the other half of the view from Pier 7, long after sunset and most of the other photographers had left. Larger version is viewable here.

San Francisco’s de Young Museum is famous for its wide variety of artifacts from all over the world. It’s less famous, however, for the beautiful sunflowers that decorate its restroom sinks! Larger version viewable here.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Goodbye, Gulf of California

Goodbye, Gulf of California

Here’s a shot of the very tip of the Gulf of California (AKA Sea of Cortez), shortly before crossing over Baja and the border back into the United States. It’s always interesting seeing major landmarks from the air. Large version viewable here.
