These days I don’t go anywhere exciting to hike, but I walk my dogs every day around the neighborhood. Come along with us on a November walk.
Sometimes it’s a chat…
A shared laugh….
The universal language of music…
And sometimes something more…
A quick snarl from this lioness sent the cubs obediently off. I wish my kid had been so obedient…
My dog, Ginger (the smaller one, she belonged to my grandma at the time) and my Dad’s dog Sam (now deceased) were really good friends. One visit when Ginger espied Sam she raced off and they looked like they were hugging. I managed to grab a picture of them hugging on our arrival before they ran toward me to say hi to me.
The Len’s Artist’s Challenge this week is also Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge One Single Flower.
I walk the same route most mornings with the dogs. This lets me keep an eye on progress. This pale pink peony bush has been on my mind of late. today’s sunshine brought it out all the way.
…oh how it rained! We were visiting the Longji terraced rice fields and there was no way to reschedule. I had a purple rain cape designed for scooter riders to wear. It was extra long in front so it covered my camera. It provided good coverage and blocked both rain and wind, but it was not breathable so I was soaked through anyway. Oh well, it was worth it.
The terraces were pretty in the mist during the few minutes when the clouds lifted. I long to go back when it isn’t the rainy season. That seemed so possible a year ago, now I wonder.
I think I found a photo with everything on the list, plus a couple of the extra credit items.
- Challenge Items: Sunrise and/or sunset, Something cold and/or hot, a bird, a dog, a funny sign, a bicycle, a seascape and/or mountain landscape, a rainbow, a church, a musical instrument, a boat, a plane, a waterfall
- Extra Credit Items: An expressive portrait of one or more people, a very unusual place, knitting or sewing, a fish, an animal you don’t normally see, a bucket, a hammer, a street performer, a double rainbow, multiple challenge items in a single image. My opening image, for example, includes a sunrise, a seascape and birds in a single shot. See how easy it is?! 😀
Last summer my husband and I walked across northern England on the Hadrian’s wall trail. The Lens Artists prompt: countryside, prompted me to go through my extensive collection of photos from that trip. There is one photo above from each day that is representative of the type of countryside we saw that day.
Having lived most of my life in the Puget Sound area my life is mostly seascape. But for this week’s Lens Artist Photo Challenge I chose to go through my archives to find photos of unfamiliar waters.
