We recently visited the Red Rocks of Sedona and the Grand Canyon in Arizona.  We have many wonderful memories from this trip, including an evening at Sunset Point in Sedona. We shared this evening with many others, all who seemed to have no care in the world other than to enjoy the beauty of a evening sunset.

Carefree

It’s funny how we can be so stressed out, and yet an event that we ignore each night in our home towns can create such a carefree attitude when visiting another location.

I hope you have a great week – may it be as carefree as sitting and watching the sunset.

The word angles can be interpreted in many different ways, including these (summarized from dictionary.com):

  1. Geometrically, with two lines coming together to a point.
  2. A projection, or corner (generally a product of the first item).
  3. A viewpoint, often used to position an argument or sale.

All of which leads me to my entry into this week’s A Word A Week Photo Challenge:

Angles

This photo of the U.S. Capital Building demonstrates a lot of geometric angles.  And though there are thousands of angles represented in the building design, these are dwarfed by the number of angles within.

Limitations Can Liberate

I came across this TED video today and I want to share it with you.  In ten minutes, Phil Hansen demonstrates the power of limitations, not only within the creative process, but within life.  Interestingly, he points out that often too many choices can lead to, well, nothing.

I hope that you find inspiration in this video.

This week I’ve been traveling on business and haven’t seen much of the outside except for when I’ve been lucky enough to grab a window seat on the plane.  Here is a shot of the plane from my seat as we fly into the sun:

And here is a shot of some plots of land through the clouds:

Fields through clouds

And to close this challenge, here’s a shot of a sunset from above the clouds:

Sunset above the clouds

All of these shots are taken with my phone through plane windows, smudges and all!

The world is a fascinating place, and being up in and above the clouds can be pretty cool – as long as the air is smooth…

Have a great day!

I’ve been traveling this week, and this is a picture taken with my phone following the landing in Washington, DC:

I tried taking some pictures during the flight, but the weather was so poor that I didn’t get any good shots.  On the way home, however, I was able to take this picture with a Canon Powershot:

It’s fun being in the window seat and getting a different perspective of the world. Sometimes we need to move around and interact in ways that aren’t part of our daily ritual to break free and see the world differently.

That’s one of the benefits of our ability to connect with each other over great distances.

Visiting other’s blogs and interacting is like looking out a window and gaining a different perspective on the world.
