It’s amazing how much texture and personality rocks can have. I used to take a lot of rock photos when I was in Oman. They were fascinating. 🙂

Do you have any of your Oman rock photographs on your blog? I’d love to see them.

Yes, I do, Linda. I lived in Oman for two years from 2011-2013 and have a separate blog from that time. Here’s my rock link: https://catbirdinoman.wordpress.com/2013/06/22/seeking-the-moonrise-on-a-rocky-hill-in-izki/

What a treat! Thank you for the link, Cathy. Some people might call that landscape barren, but you present it as a treasure trove. Glad you didn’t feel too bad about missing the super-moonrise. Still, the moon you photographed later added interest to many of your photographs.

I loved living in Oman for two years, Linda; that barren landscape made for some wonderful explorations and photos. I’ll treasure that time always. I also had a great friend there who loved to go on photowalks; it was all very special. Thanks for dropping by and checking it out.
I also lived in Korea for a year, China for a year, and I just returned from Japan, where I lived and worked for four months. I have separate blogs for all of those ex-pat experiences. I know it’s awfully confusing! 🙂

Like, nomad, I have a large stockpile of rocks photos (and even actual rocks).I don’t think I’ll ever tire of them.

Where we lived in until about a year ago, we had small collections of rocks all over the house, the way other people might put out flowers in vases. Isn’t it interesting how (some) people love rocks? Even our downsizing didn’t result in significant depletion of our rock collections; they’re just more put away now.

I use rocks for all kinds of stuff. They make great paperweights and they look good in potted plants. I currently have 5 cairns outside the house made from rocks I’ve picked up here and there. I’m preparing another site for one I’ll do next year. Keeps me out of trouble.

Maybe we’ll see your cairns on your blog? I have a kitchen rock. It holds down pages of cookbooks but also holds down food in a water-filled sink when the food needs to be defrosted before cooking.

To continue the love of rocks conversation, I’ve found myself on several occasions bursting out with, “Wow! What wonderful rocks!!” when outdoors somewhere, even in a car, and too often, that’s met with silence. I look forward to more of these!

Yes, well, there will be more. Bet if I were with you, there wouldn’t be silence!

We’d be jumping up and down, screaming, or there would be that awestruck silence. 🙂
