Lens-Artists Challenge #44 – Harmony

[Categories: Photography, Photography 101 Forever]
[Right-click on photos may allow you to open in a new tab or window.]
[Photos this week are hosted on another WordPress site.]

The challenge this week is led by Tina.

Harmony and color is the challenge from Tina this week, though she gives us the leeway to broadly define it, even sans couleur.

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind
–Songwriters: Darrell Crofts / Jimmy Seals

What would represent harmony and color more than flowers?  I love flowers, I have oodles of pictures of them, so I’ll skip that.

There is harmony in symmetry, perhaps, in a window in a new, old barn:

Or a cat in the path, while out walking:

There is harmony in nature, a seemingly contented duck in the Monet Pond at the Denver Botanic Gardens:

Or a robin bathing:

As a perpetual dreamer, my head is always, partly at least, in the clouds.
“O give me land, lots of land, and the starry ‘blue’ skies above”
Songwriter: Cole Porter

Harmony is peace, love, and understanding.  Isn’t it?

    Beautiful John! Of course I am partial to the birdies and the kitty who looks just like Herbert.

      Ha ha! I took the kitty picture Friday when a group of us were walking part of the Highline Canal trail here in Denver. While we were gathering in the parking lot a Red-winged Blackbird was hanging out on the rearview mirror of a couple of cars. When we got back 1 3/4 hrs later it was still on the rearview mirror. Narcissist.

    Well done John – you get the award for widest variety of harmonies, all of which fit the theme beautifully! Love the little kitty on your walk (altho I will admit I’m not much of a cat person, this one is particularly appealing!)

    A great post, John, with beautiful shots. I especially love the old/new barn. The sky in the window is a great example of harmony.

    Nicely done, John. Being an animal lover I maybe loved them the most…but they all fit together in harmony.

    The robin bathing is a top photo of this post for me – but I like the whole take on harmony – “peace, love, and understanding” ahhhh
