CFFC: Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: City Structures

I've traveled to cities large and small, old and new, in my 73 years.  In all of my travels, my very favorite city is an old one, a college town in England that has been settled for around 2,000 years.  I first went there in 1984 with my first husband.  We liked it so much, …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #174: Shapes and Designs

This week, I want to start with a design in Nature that is ubiquitous, among things animate and inanimate.    When the Original Designer finds a scheme that is simple, elegant, and effective, He tends to employ that design across species and materials.  That Original Design is "branching".  This is the scheme used in the …

Curvy or Arches: Cee Neuner’s Challenge for this Week!

Ooh, this one is going to be really fun! One of the original photos I posted on my blog, way back when, is a twisty road in Eastern Washington along the Columbia River Gorge.  I have always loved the shrub-steppe terrain there. How about our kitty, curving her body to rest on our barrel chair? …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #133: My photography journey

I guess I'd have to say I've always been a lazy photographer.  When I was married to my first husband, who was an excellent photographer, besides being an engineer; I had an SLR film camera (this was back in the olden days before digital photography), but I had trouble mastering all its ins and outs, …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #127: Precious Moments

I've had a pretty long life, at age 71.  I've been through two marriages, multiple careers, dozens of jobs, many layoffs, a fair amount of therapy, and years of education.  This year, the Plague Year, has had its share of precious moments, especially, for me, those moments when I chose to defy the first actual …
