Photo Journal/ Weekly Photo Challenge: Unfocused

This is the first time that we are joining the Weekly Photo Challenge, the theme this week is Unfocused. I searched in my photo archives and came up with these three. Click here to be taken to more posts.

An East Coast Park Evening

This was taken during one of our overnight camping trips in East Coast Park here in Singapore. It was an accidental shot but I thought that it was lovely.

“If the moon smiled, she would resemble you.
You leave the same impression 
Of something beautiful, but annihilating.”

Roadway Tunnel in San Francisco

My husband took this photo while we were in one of the roadway tunnels in San Francisco and the cars were whizzing past us.

“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.”

A Mother’s Day ‘Unfocused’ Special

This is one of my favorite photos of myself and my daughter. Do indulge me a bit as I share this ‘flowers-in-your-hair’ moment with my little moonbeam.

“For in every adult there dwells the child that was, and in every child there lies the adult that will be.”

Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator.
