WWC #5: The Historical Challenge


The words this week were Triumph and Tragedy. I didn't have much time to take photos so I am going to use a couple of older shots.

Triumph
Launch at Last

Tragedy
Mother gone, nest destroyed - we gave them the best shot we could.
Hope they made it.

I love the conveyance of wind in Triumph. The shot is just slightly fuzzy...it totally gets across the motion of the action.

I played too.

The triumph photo is wonderful! The joy on your daughter's face, the bright colors of the kite in contrast with the bare trees in the background, etc... I felt that amazing feeling one gets knowing that winter will not last forever, and spring is on its way. FABULOUS!

I played, too.

I didn't get the words before the weekend, but it turns out at least one, if not two images I captured fit them. So I'll be up in a few minutes!

Love that triumph photo! I'm kind of tired of Nathan being the subject of all my photos, but I guess that's life as a mom. So I used him to play this week!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the kite photo. Reminds me of my kite flying days on the beach.... and what wonderful days they were. PERFECT photo for "triumph". The "tragedy" photo was moving. I probably won't forget that one. Thanks for visiting my blog page and for your nice comment on my photo for "triumph". I'm enjoying this game! Thank you!

Damn. I SO need a new camera.

BTW: I love, love, LOVE the "Triumph" photo!

Hey... is there an echo in here?

Heh. Just had to chime in with my Kite Picture Love. ;)

(Well-done.)

I love how the kite tail draws your eye down to the beautiful little bean holding it. Very pretty.

That last picture gave me the warm fuzzies. You and your family are such kind and loving souls. I hope they made it too.
