the little buggers aboard the Hawaiian Cheiftain thought they could pass us by setting most of their sails and turning on the motor...

they were right. :P

while the Interceptor is the fastest ship in the Caribbean, the Lady Washington is definitely not the fastest in the Pacific. (she is the most beautiful, though! :love:)

Found this in the deep abyss of my old photos.... actually from the last game of last paintball season, I think.
I remember this moment, too..... I'd been eliminated in the final round at yellow base, and was walking out to the parking lot, when I saw the sun illuminating this tower and knew I had to capture it on film. Even when I'm surrounded by flying paint and shouting players, it still astounds me how beautiful nature truly is. Even when obstructed by a manmade object, she still manages to shine through. :aww:

on the plane home, I got to see the sun rise at 5000 ft...
this while it was still pretty dark, though.
and why did I tip the camera? oh, because I felt like it. and to make it more abstract, I guess. ^^

slightly retouched at the advice of :iconfatalerror69:

You may or may not recognize that photo.... it was the one I took when I reached the peak of Cypress Island with the rest of the Lady crew. Now, just a little background info, Captain JB kicked us off the ship and -- since it was for our own good -- told us that we could come back when we reached the top of the mountain. And, since it was nearing sunset, we ran up the mountainside for a good hour or so before reaching the top. But, we made it in time to watch the sunset, and I tell ya, it was one of the most beautiful things you'll ever see. Especially being up there with my newly made family.....

So anyway. It was difficult for me, 'cause I'd blown out my knee almost right away on the climb/run. So, I limped all the way up. For most of the way up, I couldn't feel anything but bloody pain in my leg. But, I refused to fall behind. My dear sister Kyrstin carried most of my stuff the way up, bless 'er, and when I made it to the top, I shoved my knife in the mountaintop and took a picture of the sunset behind it. A "sword in the stone" kind of thing. Impossible task completed.

Now, I changed the photo to be red & black hued (aye, to symbolize blood. why else would it be red?), and added one of my favorite quotes to it.

So no matter how painful the test, no matter how tough the journey, keep pressing on. After all, the harder the struggle, the more glorious the victory.

:aww:


edit-- this could go under multiple themes for the 100 Challenge... like seeing red or pain, for instance... but I'm going with fortitude. it seems to most closely fit. ^^

"Even Mother Nature loves maroon and gold."


well, I didn't like how this picture ended up with so much backlighting... so I just decided to play it up, and gave the contrast a doubleshot of espresso.
FUN. XD

taken at one of the edges of that forest-y place behind my house... that place where I wish I could live, if I didn't already live right next to it. ^^
