This week’s photo challenge for the Daily Post asks photographers to show the concept of between whether through objects, people, the actual feeling of feeling torn between decisions etc.  Here are a few examples I decided on for the subject of “between” hope you enjoy!

A landscape capture using depth of field to show a tree in the distance between the space in the branches of another tree. The viewer gains more of the surroundings as a result of peering through the space created between the branches.

The love shared between mother and daughter.  This bond is eternal and nothing can ever come between them to break this special connection!

I discovered this spider web formed between two tree branches.

Hidden deep between the blades of grass I uncovered this sparkling water droplet resting on a blade of grass.  It reflected the light beautifully casting a rainbow colored light on the blade upon which it was sitting.  It looked like a jewel resting regally between the vibrant green blades of grass!

This was an interesting addition to the Eiffel Tower when I was in France last month. Hanging between the usually open space was an inflatable tennis ball to advertise the tennis tournament the following week.  The inflatable ball was illuminated at night so it could easily be seen from afar.

So there you have it some very different depictions of the challenge of between.  What ways can you think you to depict the theme of between?

Weekly Photo Challenge- Between

While on vacation last week in France I toured Castle Chambourd in the town of Saumer.  The castle itself was stunning, and one of my favorite architectural aspects of it was the twisting, winding staircase that had been built in the center of the castle leading from the ground to the terrace.  It reached a total of eight floors when completely ascended! I took this photograph of the pillar at the bottom which mirrored the twisting of the staircases in the twisting design encircling the pole.  I felt this photo truly epitomizes the theme of twist for this week’s challenge! 🙂

Cat in a Suitcase!

How many of you have had this happen? You are all set to start packing for a wonderful, well deserved vacation. You have made your list of clothes to pack and are all prepared to begin the arduous process of packing. You have all your vacation clothes neatly packed so they can be easily placed into the suitcase when you realize the suitcase is already occupied! By your darling cat who refuses to move because he does not want you to leave! It’s impossible to argue with him as he glares up at you, tail thumping angrily against the inside of the suitcase and emitting a deep throated noise that is quite scary. No, it is better to place your clothes to the side and go about doing something else in hopes that he will vacate the suitcase in order for you to pack. Cats are such territorial animals and each sees to embody a unique personality all their own. I know that’s the case with my cat Kasey. Now twelve years old and VERY set in his ways, it’s futile to get him to do something he doesn’t wish to do at times! He can also be the sweetest, most loving cat you’ll ever meet, as long as you don’t attempt to remove him from his comfortable home that is! 🙂

Paris is such a gorgeously constructed city full of buildings that are beautifully designed! I always enjoy viewing the magnificent archways, and shapes found in the structures and buildings of Paris. Each one is unique in structure, design, use of cutouts, and I find them all so magnificent and stately in presence! The materials used to create the ceilings in certain buildings alone is so exquisite and breathtaking! Thinking back to when some of these amazing edifices were created, it’s astounding to see how they have stood the test of time to allow generations of visitors to gaze upon their intricate stained glass windows, stroll through the overwhelmingly sized archways, and admire the beautiful history found around every corner of this historic city of lights!

The churches in Paris with their twisting turrets, carved statues sitting regally, keeping watch over the city are amazing sources of wonderment to me. It seems that this city was built with the intent to capture and entice visitors’ attention through the use of architecturally grand formations. One only has to walk a few steps before being confronted with the city’s splendor personified through each building, which is in itself a work of art I feel! This city is an architectural feast for the eyes!
