"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Friday Photo Challenge: STRENGTH

Friday Photo Challenge is a brand new event sponsored by The Steadfast Warrior from Destined to be an old woman with no regrets... Check out her post for details on how to participate and a list of everyone else who is posting.

Something so soft and almost insubstantial can stop everything in it's tracks. That is the epitome of strength. Wonder what it's going to be like tomorrow?

*sigh* Snow at night... one of the few things I like about winter. Now if only it could shovel itself by morning.

And I think snow is very powerful. When I lived in Seattle, half an inch was enough to bring the city to a complete standstill.

Snow is so powerful and strong. When you think about all the elements, isn't it just amazing? They can all be destructive or strong and at the same time can be calming and safe. The wonders of weather...

Powerful indeed! I love the pic and yes, there is a huge meaning conveyed through your explanation of the same.

Catching up...

Love your snow photo, and your description of how snow = strength.

Cracking up at Marty asking if they killed off Blue. Hilarious! The conversations and words your kiddos created were great to read about too.

And last, but not least... the iPad. TOOOOO funny, thanks for sharing!

Ohhh, I really like this. It's a great take on the theme. It's a complete contrast to some of the other examples shown this week, where size conveys strength.

Awesome!

So true. Snow must be female.

Snow is so beautiful to look at! Great picture.

Oooo, good take on "strength"! It's important to remember that strength exists in things that are delicate. Snow squashed down can slip one up.

Crystalline structures look so delicate, but contain such great strength that defies their visual impact. I also like the idea of strength in many.
