Weekly Photo Challenge – Scale

MLYNN_2014_Spring Vacation-416_LR

What I love most about the weekly photo challenge is sorting through all my travel photos trying to find the perfect image to share with you.  I find myself smiling as I go through them.  It brings up such happy memories of times when I saw amazing landscapes, historical sites, and most importantly, shared these moments with my family and friends.

This image was sitting patiently on my computer waiting to be revealed.  I had forgotten about our trip to San Clemente this summer.  On this day, Sam and I were meeting one of my very dearest friends, Lori, and her boyfriend for dinner at Fisherman’s Restaurant atop the pier at San Clemente Beach in Southern California.  As we approached the pier, I saw this woman “scaling” the San Clemente Pier to fit on her small canvas.

Charleston, South Carolina is so rich in American history and culture!  It’s a fabulous place to visit if you want a quiet, easy vacation.  I had heard so many great things about Charleston – in fact, ONLY great things – about the city so my expectations were high when Sam and I took this mini-trip down south two weeks ago. It did not disappoint!  Continue reading

Manic Monday – How do I get this guy’s job?!


I want this man’s job!  He looks like he doesn’t have a care in the world….just chillin’ out at his corner shop reading the newspaper.   I took this image two years ago in Little India, Singapore.   Despite having taken thousands of photographs since then, this one regularly resurfaces in my brain… usually on days when I feel that I just want to sit around, read a book, and not deal with the petty b.s. that comes with working in corporate America.  That’s what I want to do today….

Weekly Photo Challenge – Express Yourself – “Wild Cougar”

MLYNN_2012_NiagraFalls_19 Some pictures are just NOT meant to be shared – UNLESS there is a weekly photo challenge.  I did not take this one, but I did pose for it.  My husband thinks it’s hilarious that I am what most would call a “cougar.” I am 7 years older than my cub of a husband.  The funny thing is that I don’t smoke cigarettes (although I was admittedly smoking for this pic)  and I rarely gamble; however, when you think that going to Niagra Falls NY in February is a good idea and the only thing to do is visit the casino or freeze your buns off – you’ve got to make the best of it!

So here I am…expressing myself!  Roar!
