Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #212: Motion

So much of what we see around us is in motion, especially outdoors. If there is any wind at all, all the plants are in continuous motion. Birds on the wing are some of my favorite subjects to capture with me cameras; both my Canon point-and-shoot camera, and the excellent cameras on my iPhone 13 …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #211: My Photographic “Groove”

I gave this one a lot of thought.  I'm a rank amateur, and I mostly take photos and video with my iPhone.  I looked back at what subjects I most like to photograph, and that mean the most to me.  I decided that waterfalls and fountains are among my most favorite subjects.  I believe that …

CBWC: Busy, but with a Purpose

All the houses in our detached-condo neighborhood have received new roofs in the past year.  This week, the last homes are getting their new tops.  The roofers had to take a week off, because the temperatures were in the 90s, but they were finishing up the job this week. The truck delivering materials to the …

Terri’s Sunday Stills Challenge. Dessert? or Desert? Or both?

I checked, and I can't find any place where dessert and desert happen at the same time.  So I thought I'd highlight a little of both.  Multiple times, we have gone to Arizona for Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminars.  Of course, much of the state is desert, so it's really simple to take photos of …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #210: My Three Favorites

I'm definitely not a professional photographer, so none of my photos have been published, except right here on my blog.  And it's really hard to choose favorites, since everything I post here is a memory, and brings back to life places I've been. My first favorite photo is especially meaningful, since I took it on …

CMMC: July letter, “L” at the end of the word

Welllll...  Let's see what we can come up with with the final letter L. How about some Seagulls? This guy really just posed for me. My favorite-waterfall. They are in New York, Olympia, Washington, and Snoqualmie, Washington. How about a mural, or two? They are in North Bend, Washington, and Hilo, Hawaii. There is a …

Sunday Stills: Going on a Road Trip!

Since we have been married (2003), Hubby and I have taken five big road-trips.  In 2006, I played with my local orchestra at Carnegie Hall in New York (summers there have slots open for student and amateur orchestras to play for the local audience-our concert got standing ovations).  After the concert, we rented a car …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #209: Surreal

Unlike Tina, I don't have access to Photoshop or any photo-editing program except for what comes with the Mac OS in Photos.  I did have some fun with a photo I took yesterday, in a walk through a forest preserve.  I tried to make it somewhat sinister. At a local park by a lake, I …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #208: Summer Vibes

Summer time, and the living is easy.  Right?  Summer is when many people go on vacations, the kids are out of school, and there are no heating bills (but there are cooling bills!).  Heat doesn't agree with me, so summer is not my favorite season of the year; but we have gone on some great …
