The terms of the Photo Challenge this week: “Share a photograph inspired by a favorite poem, verse, story, or song lyric. If you’re not feeling especially literary or musical this week, see if you can capture the beauty of morning or evening half-light in your corner of the globe.”

I offer this line from a Joni Mitchell song: “They took all the trees, they put ’em in a tree museum.

The theme this week: “There’s rhythm and motion all around us — this week, let’s capture some of it in a photo.”

So I will give it by best shot (or two) from my backyard

Crows gathering in late afternoon…settling in.  Not extras from a remake of “The Birds”

By the bye, technically they are called a Murder of Crows…

The Annual Culinary & Dining Celebration Presented By Petaluma Host Lions!

 Presented By Petaluma Host Lions!

Held on March 12, 2016 at the Petaluma Veterans Memorial building. Proceeds from this annual event  benefit the High Schools through Project Graduation.

The Petaluma Host Lions Club has supported Project Graduation in the Petaluma community for the past 24 years. Safe and sober graduations are the result of the involvement of the entire community – parents, teachers, volunteers, vendors and the students themselves.

We want to offer a big “thank-you” to the Project Graduation Committees at each high school for their hard work and dedication. A special thanks goes out to the many local businesses that have donated their products, time and talent to this event.

Did everyone have a good time? I’ll let the photos address the question…

…the universe is constantly whispering words of love: expressions of pure joy, respect, loyalty, and sacrifice for someone other than ourselves, and instructions on letting go and focusing on what is most important in this world…

Capturing this in a photo…a bit of a challenge

How about a few scenes of the judges at a local Cat Show?

The challenge this week is to present an image that illustrates ‘…the quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole.’ I look forward to seeing harmony — a photo that is, or makes you feel harmonious — through your eyes.

I am not sure if I can meet this challenge but I can present an image of someone who was definitely in harmony with her environment on Bodega Head
