Photo Challenge

I thought I’d do something different and participate in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. The theme for this weeks challenge is  Rise/Set an exploration of our favorite sunrises and/or sunsets.

Sunrise is my favorite time of day. I don’t know if the picture of the Nebraska skyline below, painted by my Great Uncle Art, is the reason I love sunrise, but I have always loved this painting.

  1. Hi Janis
    I’m so glad you love the painting too. My grandfather and my Great Uncle Art worked together. Grandfather was a photographer and Uncle Art touched up the photos. I don’t know for sure, but I believe this would have been in the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. I never met my grandfather, but Uncle Art played a major roll in my life. I have many fond memories of him

    • Thank you. I’m glad you liked the haiku. I thought since I was changing it up with the photo challenge I pop in the haiku. I don’t normally write poetry.
      Also thanks for following me. Your support is very much appreciated


  2. That’s an incredible painting. I could see why it left a mark. I prefer sunsets to sunrises, but have seen plenty of both in my life, especially when we lived on our sailboat for eight years. My husband is the kind who says “How many more photos do you want of a sunset?” while I still enjoy each and every one I manage to spot (and photograph). The colors of these natural occurrences can be mind-blowing and oh-so-inspiring!


    • HI Liesbet
      Funny, my husband says the same thing. I have several sunrise/sunset/rainbow photos. Each is different because it’s a totally different day with different feelings to go along with it. I enjoy going back and looking at them. My brother lives in San Diego area and texts pictures of the sunset regularly.
