Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #98 – Delicate Colors – Part 2

[Categories: Photography, Photography 101 Forever]

[A right-click might allow you to open a photo in a separate tab or window.]

The Lens-Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Leya/Ann-Christine.

Says she: “I thought we would indulge in some Delicate Colours! They are everywhere in nature, but also to be found anywhere you look, in for example fashion, art and architecture.”

She did mention architecture. That immediately reminded me of what I consider to be one of my super-lucky right-place/right-time photos, the Bayeux Cathedral, Bayeux, France, home to the famous ELEVENTH-century Bayeux Tapestry (narrative embroidery?)

We were visiting the town and tapestry while on a WWII ‘follow in their footsteps’ battlefield tour for the 104th Infantry Division, ‘The Timberwolves’. We had been to the Normandy Beaches, Omaha et al, 25km away.

It had been raining in Bayeux. It must have been afternoon, because as the clouds broke, the sun shone on the cathedral in the direction we were facing. The streets were still damp, a faint rainbow attempting to display behind the church. DELICATE.

An old mill near the cathedral now has delicate flowers adorning the walls:

Stay safe be well.

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

  10. I always love when a photo captures the light of the day in the most perfect way. The cathedral just does that, the warm glow of the sun combined with the glitter of the earlier rainfall. Beautiful.
