Kelli Seeger Kim1,297,368It's @112471890387110967375 's birthday!  (okay, well - technically, it's September 7.  But @117681034834791918293 and I couldn't wait any longer!) Anyone familiar with Karen will attest to the fact that she is all about peoples' passions.  What drives them.  What's in their hearts.   What better gift to give to her, than to share with her images that we feel represent our passion/soul/heart!.  Images that truly represent who we feel we are now - or the journey we are on (or traveled), in search of personal growth.   Maybe you have an image of yours that represents a style of photography that you feel a deep connection with. Maybe you have an image that marked a moment in your life that was particularly incredible for you - that touched you in a way that is significant.   We can have a lot of fun with this theme - the most important thing is that it comes from our heart.  :-) So feel free to upload images to this event, and tag them:   #SharingOurLightWithKarenHutton  Sharing Our Light With Karen Hutton (Happy Birthday, Karen!)2012-09-07 13:00:0057

I stopped to compose this shot at the top these steps in British Columbia's Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park.... and when I came back to reality (i.e., clicked the shutter and put the camera down) there was another photographer patiently waiting at the base of the steps till I was done.... He understood, a common language....

Week 16/26. theme: living things

this photograph was taken in British Columbia's Pacific Rim National Park's old growth forests...but this photo is showing newer growth.   The main roots are wrapped around an old fallen tree, called a nurse log or nurse tree, which provides nutrients for younger trees as they grow in the thick, dark forest....in this case there are three trees growing up from this nutrient source....
