Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie

Weekly Photo Challenge:  Selfie

For this challenge, snap a selfie with your cameraphone or camera.  A selfie doesn’t have to be all about you; it can reveal much more, given the elements you choose to include.

Life is GoodThe above selfie was taken during a trip my boyfriend and I took in June of 2013 to Cambria, California and Hearst Castle.  It was a wonderful 2 night trip and our hotel was directly across the street from the magnificent Pacific Ocean.

This pic was taken around 9 am as I am sitting outside the hotel in a balcony area that overlooks the beautiful and majestic Pacific Ocean.  I started my day by journaling and having some hot coffee, reflecting on how wonderful my life is and how blessed I Am to have the experiences I Am having.  Sometimes it seems quite surreal and magical, especially when you throw in some magical morning mist.

The red shoes are a pair of my favorite shoes.  My boyfriend bought them for me in a little boutique in Palo Alto at the Stanford Shopping Center.  We were walking by the window and a plethora of unique colorful shoes in the window caught our eye.  We both looked at each with this look of “Wow, those are cool!” on our faces and immediately went in to try them on.  I walked out with them on my feet, at the insistence of my kind and generous boyfriend.  As an added bonus, they are unbelievably comfortable, like gloves for my feet.  Every time I wear them they get many compliments.

These selfies were also taken on this same trip.  Across from the hotel on the ocean side of the street, there was a convenient boardwalk that stretched all along the Pacific Ocean providing breathtaking views of the ocean.  We stopped along the trail to snap a few selflies and my boyfriend surprised me with a kiss! 🙂

Pacific OceanThere are steps from the boardwalk leading down to the Pacific Ocean.  It was slightly chilly, but quite comfortable and I lounged on an old log that was stretched out on the shore, watching the ocean ebb and flow.  The sound of the waves washing onto the shore was cleansing to my Soul.  The smell of the salty air was like inhaling medicine directly into my body from the sea.  The trip was a success on every level! 🙂

Thanks for checking out my selfies!  Have a blessed day!

Aum ~ Peace ~ Amen
