Weekly Photo Challenge: Layers

Layers conjures all kinds of images for me.  As a gal from the Midwest, I learned to dress in layers, but layers envelops us at even more basic levels than that.  These pictures all came from our Accidental Vacation to the Oregon Coast then down the northern California Coast.

For example, here is an example of the air we breathe.  When we can see it, we can tell it comes in layers.  The more layers you see, the less you see what’s behind the layers. In this case, a hillside obscured by layers.

Trees grow layer after layer, year after year.  When we harvest the tree, we shave layers off it to shape it into a form that pleases us.  Then we add layers of protective coating to it so that it stays beautiful forever.  If we add too many layers of even clear varnish, we lose the beauty, and it can chip as it becomes brittle.

This next picture has so many layers that it distorts the picture.  Layers do distort.  This next picture has so many layers that I can’t even count them all.  Maybe you can.

  1. That is really awesome country up there. The problem is that the weather is usually damp and cold or rainy. After traveling up to northern California for many years, through the Red Woods all the rivers up in that area, I’d go back in a heart beat.
    I like your picture, I mean Vince’s picture of the Klamath River – brings back memories.

    • Thanks, Jim. I thought of you just a second ago trying to find pictures for a post today. I found one of a fire hydrant with MH on it. I took it just for you about a year ago.

  2. I made a mistake. The last picture should be credited to tchomeguy rather than tchistorygal. Vince took that amazing picture. I was doing the same thing, but when I read Andrew’s comment I realized that I wasn’t in this picture, it hit me that I took credit for my husband’s picture. Sorry!

    • Thanks Darla. The first image is Vince’s and I just love that picture. The last image was weird wasn’t it? I wonder if I moved the camera, but nothing was blurry except one of Vince’s shoulders. So I don’t think that was the issue. There were so many directions and reflections in that image, I couldn’t even sort it out! 🙂

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
