Weekly Photo Challenge: Layered Emotions

Layered 

Thinking about the topic layered brought many thoughts. I am intrigued by people and the layers of emotions we all have . Sometimes it stays hidden deep down and at other times it is quite obvious .Therefore my interpretation of the topic layered focuses on people and their emotions .

Mother and child . He is so content but who knows the layers of emotions the mother  experiences?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ooh Shiny, Elephants in the Sky

Ooh, Shiny!  

Thinking about the question what would distract me and cause me to stop that which I am busy with, I immediately thought about clouds. I always see clouds and will even stop while driving to look at interesting clouds. Here are a few.

An elephant in the sky, here now, but gone in an instant as air currents blow the cloud formation apart.

I took these pictures while walking across the Mill Bridge In Lucerne Switzerland. This wooden bridge is the original dating from the 16th century and was part of the city’s  fortification. Citizens of the town crossed the bridge daily. The wood is old and weathered and in my mind’s eye I could almost hear the sounds of swords, voices and wagons. . This part of the bridge is wider to allow wagons access to it.
