Weekly Photo Challenge: Object

Michelle.Fitzurka.Teapot

A recent Digital Photography class gave me an excuse to spend a lovely afternoon at a local herb garden.  I found this delightful teapot next to a shaded iron bench overlooking a small pond.  Just a stone’s throw from a tiny fairy garden, and a perfect spot for a precious moment of reflection and relaxation.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit!

Standard

Just posting on the fly in this nut-astically insane week!… Here is my response to this week’s photo challenge!

Back in ’94, I spent an incredible week at Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota…  I still remember the sound of hooves rumbling across the hilltop as some of the Native men in the tribe rode around the camp and into the Arena before the start of Grand Entry for the Pow Wow.  It was a heart pounding vision that perfectly portrayed the theme of Free Spirit… I will never forget it!

The riders circle the Arena prior to Grand Entry.

Now that I am older and raising children, it is no longer appropriate for me to enter the arena as a shawl dancer.  This picture of another young woman shawl dancing during that pow wow, is reminiscent of my more ‘spirited’ and youthful years!  🙂
