Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun

This week’s photo challenge is about viewing the sun from a perspective other than sunrise and sunset.

About Coming East

I am a writer, wife, mother, and grandmother who thinks you're never too old until you're dead. My inspiration is Grandma Moses who became a successful artist in her late 70's. If I don't do something pretty soon, though, I'll have to find someone older for inspiration.

    Very nice photos, Susan. From sun photos to psyllium fiber. Now that’s a segue!

    The NYC shot is my favorite; my older daughter lives there and loves it all! The picture makes me want to get on the train and go visit her (and that fabulous city)!

    Thanks for sharing your photos, it’s like a mini vacation for me. 😀

  8. Those are really beautiful. I’m always in awe of your photos.

  9. fiztrainer says:

    Love your photos … especially the New York City one. 😀

  10. Margie says:

    Good choices for photos. Sunrises and sunsets would have been too easy, wouldn’t they?

  11. Beautiful photos. Love the seascape the best. Makes me feel that dreams come true everyday.

  12. Shary Hover says:

    Beautiful! I love the sun peaking through the tall buildings.

      Thanks, Shary. I think I took the sun for granted when we lived in San Antonio because it was sunny nearly every day. Sometimes I was sick of the sun. Not anymore!

  13. Gorgeous. I have never been to New York City! I hope to one day. Love the ocean shot, I was going to go to the beach this weekend but just saw the cold forecast. I want summer!

    • Coming East says:

      Darla, so close to NYC and you’ve never been? You need to remedy that, girl! I grew up only fifty miles from the City, and my grandparents lived there and my dad grew up there, so we drove in all the time. When I got my first job after college, I’d have to take the train into the City sometimes.

      I’m ready for some warmer weather, too. You would think we’d be a lot warmer that you right now, but we haven’t been.

  14. You are so fascinating! I look forward to enjoying your posts each morning either having my juice or coffee. Thank you for being part of my morning ritual. Your posts always get me thinking not only of what you have posted,but of you. Hope those dresses are fitting loose on you now! Thanks again. I will have to see what photos I have of the sun. My passion is looking at the clouds each day and how the sun reflects on them, changing thier colors. Fascinating post. Thanks again! DAF

      What an absolutely lovely and humbling comment, DAF. Since I’ve only lost two pounds, I don’t think those dresses will be swimming on me yet. I’m going to try them on this weekend and have my husband help me choose which one I should take. He keeps reminding me that it’s only been two weeks. If I take stock of how I am feeling since I started this Paleo diet, I’d have to admit that I don’t think my acid reflux is so bad anymore. If that was the only benefit, I’d be singing it’s praises, Hallelujah! But it’s too early to tell if that diet is the cause.

      • Margie says:

        Have you tried adding metamucil to your diet? I believe it has helped reduce some of the issues I had with the medications I take for acid reflux, in addition to the other benefits it offers.

      • Coming East says:

        Really, Margie? Even if I eat a lot of fiber? I will try anything if it would help.

      • Margie says:

        Many claims have been made about the benefits of psyllium fiber. Your doctor will be able to clarify how it differs from other fibers, and how much you could try using if you want to give it a try!

      • Coming East says:

        Since I know it is not harmful, it’s worth a try, Margie.

Let me hear your thoughts. They are important to me.
