One Word Photo Challenge: Earthquake

Here’s another flashback. The 1988 San Francisco earthquake. I remember with horror the images of complete devastation. In the videos and movies that followed were scenes from the collapsed Bay Bridge and the amazing rescues. Unfortunately far too many died.

I wouldn’t drive over the bridge and I conveniently avoided it during my two day stay. But never fear, my daughter just happened to find her way there. I sat in the passenger seat cringing at the memories of this collapsed bridge nearly 20 years before. Oh, and this was before I overcame my fear of bridges. It’s a wonder I survived.

Cee’s Fun Foto: Sence of Hearing

Silence speaks loudly for those who dare to listen

There are many things that amaze me about deserts but sound, or should I say lack of sound, amazed me the most. The deafening peace of deserts will suck all life’s anxieties right out. There is so little to hear that any sound you hear is amplified greatly. The caw of a vulture, whistling winds or howling coyotes sound as if they were right with you though far away.

One Word Photo Challenge: Blizzard

If you lived in the Midwest in January 1978 you’ll remember The major blizzard that devastated the region. I was in college during mid semester break. There were very few students on campus. We weren’t allowed to leave our dorms for two days and weren’t to leave campus for a week. We hung out at the student center where there was food, limited as it was. Trucks were unable to get through to deliver food. After a week we ventured out to the grocery store that still handing received many deliveries and most shelves were bare. But it was a nice change of scenery

This photo was taken just before I fell through the snow that reached my hips.

One Word Photo Challenge: Wildfire

This photo was taken on my second trip to Grand Teton National Park. After four months of travel I couldn’t wait to see those shooting peaks that changed my geographic focus. But when I got there I could barely see them from the smoke of a wildfire. I was so disappointed but the colors of sunset brightened my outlook. Without the smoke this sunset would have been much different.
