I love those photos especially the one of the sky.. it's quite abstract until you see the bird - beautiful

This is a wonderful idea! I love it!

Becky said...

Maybe it is just the mood I'm in but the photo of the sky, solitude, the freedom of complete solitude. Thats what it says to me.

Molly said...

The weekly theme idea is delightful, but even if you weren't doing that, it would still be quite a pleasure to come and feast one's eyes upon the photos. You ladies certainly have a gift!

I like the contrasting color on the street sign.
Here's my take on "High"

I'd love to do this with someone. I was wondering how do you both load the photos - does one of you do it or do you each add your own? This is a fantastic blog - I posted it on my Facebook page!

Great job!!!!

New follower here. Beautiful pictures.

The sky picture, in particular, speaks to me. Majestic, dark, yet somehow empowering. Makes me think of unbridled freedom.

Looking forward to future posts.

How would I have interpreted the theme "high"? I would have shot it from the roof of a tall building, looking down on traffic or a beautiful park or something.

Thanks again for your wonderful work. Always a pleasure to see your blog. I have it listed on my blog as a favorite.

Happy September!

Jaana and Kia said...

@Dhila Backstrom: That's a very clever interpretation of 'high', and what lovely colors.

@inger: The 'thing' in Jaana's photo is a seagull up in the sky.

@Sushiboofay: We take turns posting the photos. We usually send our photo in a zip file to the one who's going to update, so that there is no peeking beforehand. ;)

@Everyone: As always, thank you for you compliments and comments!

This is a really great idea! My two best friends live super far away (Alaska and France, and me in Arkansas!). It's so hard to keep in touch but this is a great way.

Mary said...

Great Blog! Intriguing and thought provoking. How do I leave comments on ways I would interpret the pictures?

Never mind...found way to leave comments. One suggestion though, your titles and dates are hard to read unless scrolling over them. But, makes one keep looking........

The theme of "high" is interesting. My take on the photos: Jaana's I felt was literal and that was only when I was able to spot the bird in the sky. Initially it came across as a thick could of smoke and well I thought "getting high" :). But even with the bird in view to give a sense how high it is, the sky seems endless in its vertical climb. I enjoyed Kia's photo too. It has a kin of unexpected/surprising nature to it...does that make sense? Perhaps because the aim is on the word, at least that's my interpretation. And not just the word but the translation of a word(s)i.e An Ard - Shraid = High Street. It's really cool. Love it! Thanks!
