As a Californian familiar with the hot politics of coastal accessibility, I reveled in the wild stretches of Australian beach along the Indian Ocean. This one shows only a slight hint of human habitation.
I shot this a few years ago while in Ireland. The bridge, located near Galway in western Ireland, was featured in the movie The Quiet Man starring John Wayne.
Yes, that is really the name of this popular spot in Death Valley National Park, California — not something I made up trying to give my photo a clever name! This large expanse of crystallized salt on the valley floor would make for a challenging game indeed.
This guy has a town and a snazzy museum named after him! A hologram of Buffalo Bill Cody greets you at the door of his museum in Cody, Wyoming. This legendary frontiersman and entertainer of the Wild West days gained and lost several fortunes in his lifetime. To see the entire exhibit for today’s challenge, go to Leanne Cole’s blog.
This is my painterly representation of the Lippitt Farmstead in Cooperstown, New York, a town much better known for being the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame and the childhood home of author James Fenimore Cooper. The farmstead is part of a farm museum complex that shows what agrarian life would have been like in the mid-nineteenth century.
A bird may be hiding its home in the trees somewhere, but the nest I am speaking of is the Beijing National Stadium, nicknamed the Bird’s Nest. A small corner of this unique, nest-shaped steel structure provides the background for this image, which is my contribution to this week’s challenge. To see all of the entries, go to Australian photographer Leanne Cole’s website.
