Photo101: Landmark


So many big and important places. This is a small landmark that has personal significance for me. Since I am sure that most of my visitors don’t read Hebrew, I’ll translate

The First Kiosk

My husband’s family came here in the very early 1900’s from Russia. My father-in-law (z”l) was born there while his younger brother (now 88) was born here. Both boys helped their mother run the kiosk after their father passed away suddenly. By the time my husband was born, the kiosk was long since gone, but the boulevard where it stood continues to be a shady and welcoming place for both old and young.

Photo101: Connect


This snapshot was taken on the morning of our last day in Amsterdam. My daughter, who I had not seen for a few months, and I were on our way to have breakfast before heading to the new wing of the Rijksmuseum. For me the shadow play was too hard to resist.

Photo101: Bliss

This is an easy one for me, but again I find I need to post from the web and not the WP app since I can’t seem to directly share to WP from Instagram. (Boo!) If nothing else, it gives me an opportunity to show you how to embed an Instagram on your site.

Need to spend more time here, more often #sunset #israel

If you put your ear up to the screen and close your eyes, you should be able to hear the sursurrus of the ocean as it swells and recedes, sucking your feet into the wet sand while you stand and watch the sunset at the shore’s end.

Photo101: Water

Oh, water! I suppose I could have posted one of my Norwegian fjord or waterfall pictures from May, but I’m really trying to keep up with the spirit of Photo101 and snap new photos as a part of the assignments. If nothing else, it is really forcing me to look for “photo ops” during my limited free time while travelling to work or home. (Maybe it should be called Photo101 Scavenger Hunt!)

While we had rain overnight, by the time I was out and about most of it was in the process of drying up. So here’s my photo for today’s assignment, Water.

9.3MB straight from the Camera (4128×3096); 14.6MB (Holy Cow!) after editing in Pixlr Express (same dimensions as original) and 2MB after uploading to WPcom (1600 px on the long side).

I’ve cheated just a bit today though. I’m creating my post online from the WPcom Dashboard rather than my phone since I’m so pressed for time, but the photo was edited in Pixlr Express, uploaded and inserted via my phone.

PS just a reminder that “Likes” are turned off on this site. If you’d rather not leave a comment, do feel free to rank my posts/photos instead. Thanks!
