Lost in a Forest

I seem to have lost all interest in blogging, which is why I haven’t done it in so long.  Maybe this is just a temporary thing brought on by the election.  I now spend a lot of time on Twitter voicing my political opinions, but don’t care about blogging about them, something I did in 2012.

I think I’m going through a transition period.  Don’t know if I will ever return to blogging.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Vibrant


When I think of vibrant, I immediately think of Southern California and their colorful vegetation (pink cactus above)  and houses.  Below are few photos of vibrant structures in Venice, California.

Optimism During a Snow Storm–Revisited

In response to the Post Weekly photo challenge: Optimistic

Yesterday, when I posted Optimism During a Snow Storm, I was using photos from past storms.  Then just today we got a blizzard here in Staten Island.  I’ve been out all morning taking photos.

Man optimistic about shoveling snow in the middle of a blizzard.

Optimism During a Snow Storm

In response to the Post Weekly photo challenge: Optimistic

Since a snow storm is supposed to happen tonight, I have snow on the brain.  These are photos of people showing optimism during a snow storm.

This person is optimistic that he can push his car to get it going again.  He better call AAA.
These people are optimistic that they will be able to get to where they want to go in their car.  Dream on.
