DP Photo Challenge: State of Mind

DP Photo Challenge: State of Mind

“A style all her own” … That was the text under my high school year book photo.  Since the rules of year book captions state that you can’t say anything negative about your fellow classmates, that is about as close to saying….”She is a bit weird”… as you can get.

In high school being different, wasn’t a good thing, but now I embrace that weirdness and it can be demonstrated by my state of mind.  I love winter at the beach (perhaps not normal).  It is quiet, it is cooler, there are limited numbers of tourists around and I can happily take pictures of critters that seem to take on human characteristics.  So here what they say to me:

I’m really glad that I’m not the only one having a bad hair day.

Who are you looking at?

And while not a critter, who can resist a February blooming yellow rose that says:  Life is good.

There you have it…my state of mind today.




I retired from a rule-driven profession and moved to the beach in Georgia with my husband. Now I spend my time doing fun and creative things and enjoying the warm weather and my beautiful surroundings.

  1. Nice post! Thanks! Who says preferring winter at the beach isn’t “normal?” (We couldn’t agree more, PLUS, you just listed half a dozen very rational, non-weird reasons right here, touché !) Hmmmm, state of mind… winter at the beach… do you know the 2004 movie “The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” ? We bet you will love it, if you don’t already. Bye! Jean & Alex

    1. Thank you. My theory on life is that we are all weird and different and that is what makes the ride fun. I never heard of the movie that you mentioned, but checked with the in-house guru (aka hubby). He said it sounded familiar, but he didn’t know it either.

      1. Well, we hope you’ll look it up one of these days! Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey, and the beach at Montauk (LI) in winter. Big hugs to y’all in Tybee! Hellos to Marsha and Ronnie at Sea Kayak Georgia (great paddle folk, maybe you’ve met them!). G’nite! J&A

  2. I love this…and I am finally able to embrace my inner weirdness…yesterday I spent the day at my local beach…so I don’t feel that odd, but you might. We has 75 km/h gusts, there were 20 ft high mountains of ice and the waves where throwing chunks of ice over the tops…very bracing indeed.

    Love these shots…egrets are some of my favourite characters. 😊

    1. Thank you. Being in Georgia, the weather is great pretty much year round. So when I say winter…it may be about 50 degrees. It sounds a bit nippy in your neck of the beach.

      1. It was just at the freezing point (32F) … Warm for this time of year in these parts. 😉
