Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence

I love this quote from Aldous Huxley. In music, there are moments of silence that are as important as the moments of sound. They allow you to breathe. They allow your audience to breathe. Without them, music becomes chaos and frantic noise.

This is my nephew, who is a masterful violinist and has his black belt in several martial arts. He will graduate from high school this spring, and I think he is rather nifty.

Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

I live at the foot of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains. The peaks are majestic and awe-inspiring, and not a little intimidating for people who aren’t used to being surrounded by very tall mountains.

The first picture (taken this week) is from a freeway overpass looking the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon. The second picture (taken June 2016) is of Lauterbrunnen Valley in Switzerland.

These amazing doors are to the old City and Country Building in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. The lovely girl posing in front of them is my cousin’s daughter. She picked this location for her senior photos. Great choice.

This is my entry for Norm 2.0’s Thursday Doors challenge.
