One Community is a monthly photo project in which participants photograph their lives and communities with a theme in mind. The theme varies by month. The goal is to both showcase similarities and differences in our communities worldwide – and bring us all closer together in understanding through art. Our Words for February are style, heirloom, heartbeat and warmth.
The Rules: Post one or more photos interpreting the words for the month, and add your blog post to the link-up. Please include a link back to the link-up post on your One Community post, and take a look at some of the other links and comment on them. After all, this is all about building community!
Style – The window display at the malls of Vegas, so stylish.
Heirloom – This was given to me by my grandmother. Though I have many pearl sets, this is the one that I love the most.
Heartbeat – Stratosphere Tower was built in 1996 by Bob Stupak. It is 1,149 feet tall or 350 meters tall. There are 4 rides at the top of stratosphere, Big Shot, Insanity, X-scream and Sky Jump.
We rode the Insanity ride, which has a massive mechanical arm extending out 64 feet over the edge of the Stratosphere Tower at a height of over 900 feet, this Vegas ride will spin you and several other passengers in the open air. You’ll be propelled up to an angle of 70 degrees, which will tilt your body straight down! A video of the ride while waiting for my turn, just watching this makes my heart beat faster.
Warmth- The climate at Oxford is very fluctuating. We had a warmer climate ( around 60’s) during weekend and now it’s back to cloudy & rainy. I haven’t seen the sun these past 2 days. Sunday’s sunset, missing the warmth of the sun.
