Dreamy – Weekly Photo Challenge – wwMc7

dreamy conneaut lake morning fog 101214

My WordPress friend, Barbara at Silver in the Barn, has been encouraging me to join in on the fun at the WordPress Daily Post Photo Challenge.  Feeling a bit intimidated to enter my extremely amateur photos, I’m stepping out and just doing it.

This week’s challenge theme is DreamyA misty morning, your handsome spouse, your grandmother’s house that’s also your elementary school and the Eiffel Tower — this week, show us something dreamy.

Well – after waking up early Sunday morning at Conneaut Lake after Saturday’s Krautfest, I couldn’t resist taking a walk down to the lake and snapping some photos of the “dreamy” fog while the sun was trying to break through for what ended up to be a gorgeous Fall day.  I’m so glad I captured this, because it didn’t last long.  I sat on the dock and got a very cold and wet bum, but it was such a dreamy few moments as I remembered the day before, thought about the day to come (celebrating my oldest son’s birthday), and simply cherishing the moment.

My “walk with my camera” (#wwMc) sure led me to a dreamy place for this week’s challenge.  And interestingly, as I look at this photo, I want to mention it was not taken in black and white or edited as such, this is the natural shot “in color.”  It was that foggy, and taking the shot into the sunrise created the silhouettes.  Not sure what all the technical terms are.  I’ll be learning some day….

Thanks for the nudge, Barbara.  You’ve been such a great encourager all along.  I truly appreciate you.  (check out her awesome blog and photos!)

Cheers & Hugs,

  1. Jodi, I love this photo….so perfect for the challenge!! I have met some of my favorite bloggers through the Weekly Photo Challenge and I’m sure you will too. And, let’s be real here, often my photos are dismally amateurish but if they fit the theme, I’m doing it! So far no one has pulled the plug on me! Yay! I’m really glad you’re giving this a try and thank you so much for your kind words. I appreciate your support so much!!

  2. Oh, how lovely…you capture such beautiful scenes that can be taken for granted if they were not captured by your camera. Definitely dreamy…


    • Thanks Cindy – it’s funny how holding a camera will do that. It is brought me such joy in discovering things I previously would have overlooked. Through the lens of a camera is such a joyful gift to me!


  3. Actually no matter if someone doesn’t understand afterward
    its up to other visitors that they will help, so
    here it happens.


I love hearing from you - hope you'll drop me a line
