Lens-Artists Challenge #53 – Friendship, Country, Imagination, Connection

[Categories: Photography, Photography 101 Forever
[Photos this week are hosted right here on WordPress.  Somewhere…  serene.]

[All photos might be right-clicked to open in a new tab or window.  These are recent pictures I’ve taken.]

The challenge this week is an anniversary celebration led by all four Lens Artist Photographer Exemplars.

Friendship (Tina), A Country That’s Special to You (Ann-Christine), Imagination (Patti), and Connected (Amy).

FRIENDSHIP (and more, really):


You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
…Lennon (John)

    Well, absolutely!
    Love this entirely!
    And love seeing you, and your wonderful wife.
    The Ponte Vecchio is so beautiful,
    but then, of course, there is Colorado!
    Cheers and love to you both.

  2. Great photo choices for the prompts this week. I love the smiles in the first ones, the subtle message of the grand view – which is gorgeous, the pops of colors in the next couple of photos, and the way you captured the connections with man-made structures. Yep – you nailed the prompts well! Nice!
