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

Per A-C: “…small surprises usually occur in our everyday life. It could be surprising meetings, incidents, or maybe eye openers. In fact anything you feel surprises you!”

The beat rolls on. (Sonny and Cher.) Get ’em all in one swell foop, or something like that.

I love architecture. One of Man’s (and Woman’s) many propensities. The closest thing we have to chateau in my area are these ‘suprisingly’ (Challenge theme!) HUUUUUGE homes, built next to their community boundaries and easily visible from the hiking trail I’m on, so I don’t feel I’m encroaching on privacy, at least from a distance.

A bit of chateau-castle crenelation in this ‘small’ one:

A man’s home is his cassette, or something like that. It’s small compared to its next-door neighbor:

Can you roller-skate in it? If so, might be worthwhile.

If you look closely at this last picture, you might solve the new Agatha Christie mystery, The Case of the Purloined Terracotta Warrior.

Likely a replica.

Stay safe, be well. Be kind to one another. 😷 👏 👍

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

  6. My husband’s sister has a 7500 square-foot home, one of the small ones in her neighborhood with the homes far far apart.

    wow!. beautiful homes. Cant imagine cleaning it. No doubt, there is a staff that takes care of that, but since I like to do everything myself, it would be out of the question. Nice photos though. Have a good weekend, John. Donna
