~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #234: Messages ~

Welcome to Donna of Windkisses as a host of LAPC! Donna invites us to search for messages in our photography. “To some, photography is formal, with clear and concise messages. Others want you to feel the photos, and take away impressions from what you see. At the end of the day, it is always our story, driven by our character and passions, that we showcase.”

My opening photo communicates in two ways; the written name and logo for the Breakers Condominiums (where I own a unit), and a dramatic display in the background of the Pacific Ocean rollers that inspired the name.

Above, another two in one photo taken on the trail above North Head Lighthouse, in Cape Disappointment State Park, WA. The lighthouse (no longer in use) was a means of relaying warning messages to ships along this coastline, also known as, “The Graveyard of the Pacific.” A fir tree clinging to the side of the bluff shows us how strong the winds are as they buffet the headland.

Tracks imprinted in the sand are messages telling me who has been here in the recent past. From upper left clockwise, deermouse tracks frozen in a frosty dune, crow, gull, deer and eagle.

Killdeer parents are extremely protective of their fledglings who are vulnerable in their open-field ground-nests. The one above is doing a “broken wing” masquerade to lead the intruder (me) away from the nest area, as it also calls out in plaintive song.

Above a flat metal sculpture announcing that you are in the land of delicious seafood! Razor clams, Dungeness crab, Willapa oysters and Salmon to name a few of the delicacies available seasonally on the Long Beach Peninsula. I could go on and on with more signs and messages, however I’m late already, so I’ll close with a lighthearted invitation!

On your walk with life, please honor our earth, encourage dignity and share kindness. 🐾

    I was SO looking forward to your contribution, knowing where you live. My favorite photo is the Breakers with the ocean in the back. Stunning. And the footprints tell so many stories of your space. Thank you Lindy. Live, Laugh, Eat, Repeat. I am heading to the kitchen as I type. Dinner is ready…..Thanks again. A beautiful post, and as you know. I love where you live.

      Thank you, Tina. I made a notebook for guests who stay at our condo which includes menus of restaurants we like, and info on sites to see. On the cover of it is that Live, Laugh, Eat, Repeat message!
