It’s Wednesday….Hump Day….and it also means it’s time for another sepia photo. I took this photo on a nature walk. There was a goat and 2 horses, fenced up in someone’s back yard. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be an animal….they just eat and sleep and other people take care of all their needs. They don’t have to pay bills, work, or deal with other adult responsibilities. But then I think, this animal is fenced it; it has no real freedom or independence, since it IS dependent on others for everything. So for today, I will just enjoy looking at the picture and simplicity of his life in the photo, and reflect on my life and hope to appreciate my freedoms and independence just a little bit more.
What do you feel/see when looking at this picture? Any thoughts?

WordPress has now started a weekly photo challenge. Each week they will give a topic/theme for creative inspiration. Then you take and post a photograph based on your interpretation of that theme. The topics will be announced each Friday for the week. You can read more about the photo challenge here.
This week, the theme is: BOUNDARIES
Here is a picture I took at the San Diego Zoo of this leopard confined to his cage. His boundaries are imposed upon him. I wonder how many of us sometimes feel like we are boxed into our own cages, our life on display for all the world to see. I would probably react similar to this leopard, crouched and ready to pounce. How/what does this picture make you feel or think?
Back in October, I went with my friend Hayley to the Wild Animal Park near San Diego, CA. It was cold and rained the whole time, but we made the best of it and loved it!
I love going to zoo’s, animal parks, and anywhere where you can experience animals, nature, and the beauty and wonder that God has surrounded us with. I also love taking pictures…so I combined the 2 and here are some of my favorite shots from the day. Please comment on which is your favorite.
