The Lens Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Tina.

A potpurri finale.

Inspired by Amy’s row of statues from Thailand, this is the entrance to Luxor Temple, Egypt:

Above and below are converted from print to digital:

Now for a bit of Ireland. First, the Titanic Museum in Belfast:

The Walled Garden at Glenveagh Castle and National Park, northern Ireland:

Boyle Abbey, County Roscommon, Ireland:

The Cliffs of Mohrer:

High in the Blarney Castle. Lines can curve and wiggle:

Finally, last but not least, lines from a master. Vetheuil in Summertime, 1879, Claude Monet, from the soon-to-close exhibition of about 120 Monet paintings at the Denver Art Museum. His reflections in water are superb.

Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.

Best wishes for 2020.

    OK John, you definitely win for most lines😊. Your world travels are amazing and your natural tendency to capture the lines is terrific!

  2. Amy says:

    Wow, the Luxor Temple!! Beautifully captured. We were there in the evening, and it was so crowded.
    Great series for the leading lines, John!

  3. Tish Farrell says:

    Some very lovely compositions here, John. But the Luxor ones are entrancing. Which is making me wonder about the quality of print over digital. The former seems to admit you into the frame rather more than digital because it conveys sensation as well as vista. I had a fleeting sense of ‘being there’, even though I never have been. Intriguing.

  4. You have a great eye for lines and are obviously well traveled. Thanks for the tour!!

  5. Leya says:

    Love all your lines, John, but Luxor – a great temple and history…and lines. And the Titanic museum is a fantastic one…and – no, it is impossible to chose!

  6. Nice examples! Your shot of the Abbey is my favorite. And it reminded me of a garden shot in my own archive that I could have added to my collection.

  7. I wish to seethe Luxor Temple, John. Your photos captured great lines and curves too. I would like to visit Ireland also inspired by your photos.

    These are beautiful – I especially like the walled garden photo!

  9. Amy says:

    This is such a great series. The Luxor Temple looks so impressive. I love the Abbey you’ve captured in Ireland. I loved the one that I visited in Scotland. I wish I’d been able to fit in more.

  10. Wendy says:

    Superb collection, John. Fun viewing too.

  11. I’m inspired by your travel list John. The abbey reminded me of the Harry Potter movie and the Titanic museum , the ship of course ! Had heard so much about the cliffs and it was amazing seeing it all through your lens . Ireland is calling me!
