Theme ~ Far Far Away

Chosen by Kathy.

After a two-week break for us headbangers, we're back with a new year and a new theme.  My first thought upon seeing the theme was Paris, but I've used lots of photos from there, and it was also a while ago.  The most recent "far away" place I've been is California, so I thought I'd feature this image, which was taken at sunset at my sister-in-law's home.  In silhouette, with the palm tree branches gently swaying, it looks like an exotic place far away from wintry Chicago.

You may remember from a few weeks ago my header image from Huntington Beach, California; here is a "re-post" sunset image from that far-away locale.

While in far-away California, we had the chance to visit and connect with many family members.

The hibiscus flower is definitely not from around here; another "far far away" flower!

Here is our "far far away" family, with a photo of my aunt held by her granddaughter, and many family members in front of her home.

That's it from far far away!

  1. As far as you can go west without a boat.

    1. No boat here, Kathy! I love the ocean, and the warm temps in December were lovely.

  2. Lovely sunset Christine and neat show of far far away

    1. Thanks, Mac! It's the best I could do as a non-traveler (who hopes to travel more in the future!).

  3. Beautiful west coast sunset! Love the deep colors you got as the sun set.

    1. Thanks, Lew! I love sunsets in any way, shape, or form, and this one was particularly beautiful, on a warm December afternoon, too. :)
