Billowy clouds covering the sky
Light peering through, trying to break free
Walking in a fog since the beginning of the year
Mom is not well, although we are searching for answers, nothing is clear
Life seems different, uncertainty rears its ugly head
The day to day seems tedious, joy is only found when the person you care for has a good day
Life goes on, mundane things keep you in the moment but the pain and uncertainty creeps in, when you least expect it
You want to help carry the burden but you can’t; you can only provide love and solace in their time of need
One evening you notice the clouds
The billowy clouds covering the sky.

Photography Challenge #8: Landscape: Panorama

Hi Everyone!

So, here I am: working on week 8’s challenge many months after it has happened. Life has taken some crazy turns for me and it looks like it has no plans to slow down. I’m not complaining but it means that I complete these challenges at my own time and pace.

The Dogwood Challenge was quite simple: Explore panorama stitching and create a wide sweeping landscape.

I tried to complete this challenge three times before I got most of it right. I used my DSLR for the challenge so I had to take multiple pictures and stitch them together with Photoshop Elements. I’m not completely happy with my end result but I hear that Photographers aren’t really ever completely happy with their end result. I definitely found the stitching aspect of this assignment hard, but I am so glad I tried it. I can only get better from here.

It remains one of the world’s most widely produced plays. The plot follows a love affair between two people, Doris and George, married to others, who rendezvous once a year. Twenty-five years of manners and morals are hilariously and touchingly played out by the lovers.
