Photography ~~ Sea (weekly Photo Challenge)

By Vintagefrenchchic

What a pretty theme for this week!  Who doesn’t love the sea (or ocean or lake)?  One of my favorite old standard songs is “La Mer” by Charles Trenet:

La mer
Qu’on voit danser le long des golfes clairs
A des reflets d’argent
La mer
Des reflets changeants
Sous la pluie

La mer
Au ciel d’été confond
Ses blancs moutons
Avec les anges si purs
La mer bergère d’azur

Près des étangs
Ces grands roseaux mouillés
Ces oiseaux blancs
Et ces maisons rouillées

La mer
Les a bercés
Le long des golfes clairs
Et d’une chanson d’amour
La mer
A bercé mon cœur pour la vie

LOVE IT!  And I love being by the water!!  I  feel so fortunate to live as close as I do to Lake Michigan.  No, Lake Michigan is not a sea by definition but it can deceive you into thinking so.  I just spent over a week on the beach of Lake Michigan in early August.  I was overwhelmed by its beauty for all 8 days.

Here is a photo I took last year of the coast line of Lake Michigan:


And here is a sunset from just a few weeks ago:


This is “my” sea.Enjoy the weekend!  Maybe you have some last minute summer plans to visit the sea??~~Heather~~
