The Life in My Years

An anthology of life

For this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, the topic chosen by Amy is narrow.

Water creates its own path through the narrowest of spaces, eventually eroding cracks and making them channels.
Below are images of California’s Stanislaus River from a narrow rapid to the narrowest of passages. Stanislaus 4

San Francisco is home to many alleys, some with their own unique claim to fame.

Flying with as little separation as 18 inches (45.2 cm) at speeds of 450 to 500 mph (720 to 800 km/h) the margin for error for the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds is NARROW.

    Oh, a strong gallery, Paulie! Those planes are really dangerously close…

      Thank you for visiting and for commenting. Yes that is a very NARROW gap between planes.

    I love these river shots! These silky smooth water flows are incredibly beautiful.
    The Thunderbirds, are way too narrow. Wow!!

    1. Paulie says:

      Thank you Amy. Water in its many forms is one of my favorites.
      As for the Thunderbirds, I’m in awe. I took my grandson to that air show and he got to meet and talk to one Major Carolyn Jensen, one of the Thunderbird pilots.

  10. I enjoyed all of these, but especially the water and the cactus. I tend to be drawn to nature more than cities. But those pilots are so talented!
