The ocean is to blame. This is a random statement, I know, but true nonetheless. This week’s photo challenge is Ocean. Uh, could you have picked anything harder for me? Seriously!

The closest ocean to me is like 3-4 hrs. away, I believe, in Galveston. I have only been to Galveston ONCE in my life and it was for like a day and a half. Needless to say, I haven’t seen an ocean that much in my life and I can’t swim, so not much need to for me. I don’t know why I’ve always been afraid to learn to swim and going under water. My 2nd oldest sister is the same with water but my oldest sister is fine with it and so is my brother. My mom can swim good and so can my dad, I guess.  Anyways, that is off topic.

Since I have no plans to see an ocean this week, I will have to scour through photos I have around here and see if I can scrounge up a picture from my Galveston trip. I can already tell you it won’t be an award winning picture. I am guessing I was anywhere from 15 to 17 on that trip and pictures were taken with a disposable camera. I don’t want to find a pic online that’s copyrighted of an ocean because what’s the fun in that? I also don’t want to just pass on a week cause I would feel like a cheater, but if worse comes to worse, I may have to settle for posting a picture of a lake. It’s still a big body of water, right? And I do have some lake pics!

So instead of a thought provoking post today, I am going to be looking up that pic AND I’m also looking through old pics on my computer to add to my Facebook. It figures that one photo job would lead me to doing other things with photos, right?

Off I go to deal with pictures, have a nice day everyone! 🙂


  1. Or you could think outside the box and go metaphorical – like an ocean of trees, or flowers, or a crowd scene as an ocean of people. Whatever you have near you that could be described poetically as an ocean 🙂 Good luck!
