Cheri’s photo challenge for this week is On the Move: (For) this week’s photo challenge, share your interpretation of “on the move” … experiment with movement or transportation in a different way … share a single image, or include more than one.
Interesting topic! Whether a traveler and tourist, or just capturing images around my home, many of my photos have this theme running through them … and many of those have already found a place on my blog. But in exploring my folders for this challenge, I found two examples of movement that I’d like to share in digital still form *and* in expanded video form: a bouncing ball (and wagging tail), and a powerful waterfall.
My Dad visited Norway December 2009 – January 2010. My labrador was in heaven with the extra attention. Here they are playing a gentle “inside” game of fetch; the action in my Dad’s hand creating the movement of the tennis ball is MacKenzie’s second favorite activity (her first is, of course, eating), and the movement of her happy tail in the video just adds to the joy.
Jan and I took a trip to Hardanger in May 2009; we stopped at Steinsdalsfossen, a waterfall with a walking path behind it. I’ve shared an image or two of it before, but have different perspectives to show here. I took several photos on the walk up the path, and a short video on the way down. The constant movement and sound of the water is hypnotic and powerful. (Ironically, during my Dad’s visit, we discovered that movement frozen solid!)
