Four Elements

Posted on

Lisa Dorenfest, on her blog ‘One Ocean at a Time,’ posted a photo challenge of sorts – a photographic representation of the Four Elements, Water, Earth, Fire, and Air. This seemed such an intriguing challenge, I decided to give it a go. I’m posting some of my photos sans captions–let’s see if they represent well. Oh, and comments are most welcome.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fire

Posted on Updated on

Check out this week’s fun foto challenge at this link. Fire is one of the five Chinese elements, and, without it life couldn’t exist. Here are my interpretations of fire; and, notice that sometimes it’s implied rather than specified.
