Photo Journal – Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

I had a tough time choosing a suitable photo for this week’s photo challenge “Near and Far” as hosted by The Daily Post at WordPress and their guest photographer, Brian Cooney. When I realized that it is mostly a play in perspective, I was reminded of several photographs that my husband has taken while we were at Napa Valley in California. Here are a few of his photos, as post-processed by me, of course. 🙂

Napa Valley, California

― Charles Baudelaire

“his lips drink water
but his heart drinks wine” 
― E.E. Cummings

How about you, dear friends, what is your photo for this week’s challenge?
