2 Things Challenge - Ghost/Art

I can't draw.  I can't sing or dance.  I don't write all that good well.  That means, any ART I attempt will be in the form of photography.  That being said, this weeks 2 Things Challenge is Ghost/Art.

While down in Mexico this past April, I awoke to an amazing morning.  The sun was just off the horizon as this cruise ship made it's way to Cozumel.  The backlighting and sharp outline, made it look like a GHOST ship that had risen from the sea.  All the poor souls on board, sentenced for all eternity to sail the seven seas.  Passing close to beautiful ports of call, but never making landfall.  The horror.  The horror.

2 Things Challenge - Saturday/Hard

It has been a long while since I have participated in the weekly photo challenge over at 2 Things Challenge.  I am finally getting back to messing with my camera, so it was nice to get out this weekend with a goal in mind.   The two topics for this week was Saturday/Hard.

The City of Blaine Parks & Recreation Department sponsored a triathlon on Saturday, May 19th, at Lakeside Commons Park.  The event consisted of a 1/3 of a mile swim, 16.7 mile bike ride, and finally a 3.5 mile run.  Needless to say, an event of this magnitude is Hard on a body.  It is made even harder by the fact that the winner did it in 73 minutes.  Wow!  These athletes are amazing.
