Lens Artists Photo Challenge – A Quiet Moment

…thanks to Patti  for hosting this week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge

Quiet moments are much easier to find these days but as things start to open up I’ve noticed that parts of the park are becoming hives of noisy activity with groups of families and friends who are gathering for the first time in months. That said there are still lots of quiet moments to share with you.

Lens Artists Photo Challenge – One Single Flower

….thanks to Cee for hosting this week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge

Not surprising that Cee would challenge us with a flower photo. She is after all the queen of floral photography. My problem is which one to choose, seeing that I post flowers every day (well almost).

Lens Artists Photo Challenge – Going Back

thanks to John Steiner for hosting this week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge

I think we all appreciate photo challenges that don’t require going outside of our homes during this pandemic. We certainly aren’t travelling to exotic places but we can look back on trips we took in the past. Here are a few of my favourite trips over the last few years.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Candid

…thanks to Ann-Christine for hosting this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge

Candid shots are the ones where your subject is unaware that they’re being photographed. There are photographers who specialize in street photography where they almost exclusively take candid shots.IMG-2798
