From the age of 16 onwards, that's when my father gave me a point-n-shoot Kodak, wherever I've gone in the world, the one thing that's gone with me is a camera. From Washington DC to Wailoaloa, Fiji. From Wikala al Ghuri in Cairo to the White river and to Wadi Rum.

I'm ending with a video - of wave watching on Wailoaloa beach, Fiji. The tide was coming in. I went for long walks on this beach sometimes as it was the closest to Denarau, where we lived while we were there.  One of my friends on viewing the clip, commented, 'It's sounds like the earth is breathing.' Wow! Did she nail it or what?

That's all for W for windows, waves, winter and water. Hope you've enjoyed the photos. Happy A-Zing! - if you're participating, we're well into the last week now! And happy cusp season to you, if you're not!
