Life ~ Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Muse

This past week’s photo challenge asked us to select a place or scene that serves as a muse. The more I thought about it and cast about for ideas, the more I realized that everything around me is my muse; the sun, sky, trees, birds, clouds, mountains, valleys, rivers, lakes, ponds, the ocean, sand, rocks, dirt, plants, flowers, bees, butterflies, animals including my beagles, family, friends and others. So, at the very last moment before the new weekly challenge arrives, here is a collage of some of my favorite muses.

~ Tuesday’s With Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge ~

Sometimes when I walk from Beach Haven to Enchanted Forest Road, there will be a dozen eggs in this dispensary. I always take enough cash to pay for them, but more often than not it is empty — indicating I was either too late or the little ladies aren’t laying prolifically!

It’s always a treat when I can bring home farm-fresh eggs from my morning walk.

Blue calms me — gives me a sense of peace. Shading from light to dark and green to violet, blue embraces all who look up to the sky and into earths waters.
