Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #164: Looking Up/Down

Thanks very much to Sofia, who echoes what I always tell my friends, photographers or not.  I make a habit of looking up, wherever I am.  Most people, when they are in a city, walk or drive along looking forward, or down at their phones (which is dangerous!).  I suggest that they take their eyes …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #163: Keep Walking

When I go for a walk in a scenic location (or even just around my neighborhood), I try to pay attention to my surroundings.  I live six blocks away from my local Costco store, so if I just want to pick up a prescription, I walk there and back. [let me put in a pitch …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #98-Delicate Colors

Others have mentioned that life is fragile.  This blogger begs to differ.  On our Planet Earth, not only is Life not fragile, there is no niche anywhere on Earth that is not occupied by some form of Life.  Living things have been found from the deepest deep-sea trenches under the oceans, to the volcanic craters …
