Lens-Artists Challenge #58 – Something Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue. Part 2.

[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.]

The Lens Artist Challenge is hosted this week by Patti.

This is too much fun.  Let’s do it again.

Something old.  Two things, soooo old it’s hard to say which came first.  Both were built in similar millennia (3000-2000 B.C.), Stonehenge likely progressed slowly over hundreds of years.

Stonehenge, from a digitized print photo some 20-25 years ago:

The Djoser Pyramid, one of the oldest of those, likewise a digitized print:

Something new.  The Getty Center.  Museum.  Opened Dec. 16, 1997.  I recommend it.

Something borrowed.  The low-down on how to get large-scale projects built, borrowed from the sardonic Despair.Com, when normal depression just isn’t enough:

Something blue.  The sky above the now-peaceful Omaha Beach, Normandy:

Enjoy.

    excellent take on the challenge (double dipping?) and it is crazy to imagine structures so old – really does make our 80 plus years feel like a vapor
    — and side note – the message from despair site is nice – but I am troubled with the whole “you can do anything” mantra because truth is we can’t – most of us have limitations – and life circumstances where maybe it is not the goal to strive to fight so hard to do anything – and we should hone and accept what we cannot do – should not do – and align our thinking to abandon dreams that really aren’t right – maybe – just thinking here – but maybe more contentment would ensue to admit flaws and legitimate areas that limit and hone in on strengths and make the right things work – hm

    Wonderful post x2, John. Lovely images too. I especially love your shot of the beach at Normandy. Fabulous.

  4. Amy says:

    Awesome choices for the old, new… the blue is beautiful indeed!

  5. Tina Schell says:

    Nice choices John, all spot on for the challenge. Love your “old” choices especially

  6. I must say I never quite ‘get’ Stonehenge John…maybe because I haven’t seen it or it just doesn’t appeal to me..but still love your choice to include it.

    Love the Omaha Beach pic John, the disappearing footprints speak the history of the place.

  8. Leya says:

    Excellent choices – and I love the beach!
