Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #126: Alphabet, Subjects beginning with the Letter “A”

This week's challenge turns out to be more difficult than I had anticipated.  I had lots of subjects in mind, but then thought a little harder.  With all the very upsetting things happening in our Nation this year, I have decided that, for me, the most important "A" subject must be, America.  At age 71, …

Lens-Artists Challenge #109 Under the Sun…Around the West

The same Sun shines on us all.  Everyone on Planet Earth gets their sustenance from the same Sun.  That Sun shines over Alaska, as well as over the Hawaiian Islands.  I spent two years in Minneapolis in grad school, and I especially appreciated that sunshine in Winter, when it was bitter cold.

This Week’s Photo Challenge: New Horizon, and Liberty

I am at the stage in my life (age 67) where New Years resolutions don't fit.  This year, I have something wonderful to look forward to for the next few years-Liberty!  With a new Republican Administration taking over in January, instead of worrying constantly about the tightening of the strait-jacket of Government constantly hemming in …
