For Lens Artists Photo Challenge: River.

A search of memory lane

I think I found a photo with everything on the list, plus a couple of the extra credit items.

A bicycle.
A church, York Minster.
Mountain landscape and waterfall, Myrtle Falls at Paradise on Mount Rainier.
Dog in an expressive portrait.
Bird, a great blue heron.
A double rainbow and a boat, near Punte Arenas.
An airplane at sunset, near Beijing Airport.
A musical instrument, sculpture in La Conner, Washington.
A hot spring in Kurobe Gorge, Japan.
A funny sign, at least it makes me smile…it is a “keep off the grass” sign in Weifang, Shandong Province, China.
