Photo Challenge and a Haiku

  6. You’ve been to some gorgeous places!

    1. I am so lucky to live on the West Coast, every day there is a gorgeous view.

      1. I’ve lived on the West Coast of the US: both northern California and Seattle (not far from British Columbia). I’ve also visited the East Coast (Massachusetts), and have spent most of my life in the northeastern third of the US (though not directly on the coast).

        The Pacific Northwest definitely has the Northeast beat for views, at least during the spring and summer. But I love the snowy winters we get in the Northeast, which completely change the look of the landscape for a few months.

        1. Ahhh, there’s where you and I differ, hihi Snow makes me super depressed, so I am very grateful for our rainy and green winters.

          1. Haha yes, we’re complete opposites in that regard! The rainy and green winters of the Pacific Northwest make me super depressed!

  7. I love the Haiku. (I even counted the syllables 🙂 ) Regarding authorial intent– did you use Envy in a positive sense? The photos were beautiful. Going nowhere is a great activity… I’m always surprised when I get there and after a curious visit… I’m ready to travel to nowhere again. It tickles my bottomless fancy. 🙂 BTW… in that last picture– how did you take that reverse selfie without a mirror. I noticed you cropped out your left hand holding the phone. 😀

    1. I guess “Envy” could be interpreted in a positive sense here (since the writing really belong to the readers), I was referring to that wistful feeling of not making the right choice, or not making any choices at all when stuck in a conundrum.

      In the last picture, I actually set my phone down on the bleachers hihi

      Thanks so much for commenting 🙂

  8. Great photos, Em!
