Lens Artist Challenge – Three of a Kind

This week Ann Christine invites us to share 3 photos that are somehow related. The triptych I am sharing is of dogs we have loved. I had to dig into my film photos for a couple of these. Going clockwise is Rosie (our most recent loss and also called Rosebud), Bumber (our first dog) and Bronco (our #2 dog) . Each of our rescued dogs enriched our lives and gave us unconditional love.

Of course, I’d get in big trouble with Gidget if I didn’t mention her since she is our current fur baby.


Cee’s Mid-Week Madness Challenge – “H”

This week for CMMC we are sharing photos of items that begin with the letter “H”. Earlier this year I had an opportunity to visit Disney Springs in Florida. I waited about 15 minutes to get a photo of the flame coming from the Rainforest Cafe volcano. My wait paid off 🙂



Lens Artists Challenge – Topic – Every Little Thing

I love macro photography so that was the direction I initially considered for this topic. Instead – I picked some recent photos of my grandkids and family dogs since they are often the ones that make us stop and pause to look around with wonder.

Our dog loves to get on our bed after it’s made and this is what we usually see of her

And – the grands – even the older one can be child like at times. She’s fun to be with as are the younger ones.

Cee’s Mid-Week Madness Challenge – “F”

The topic this week for Cee’s challenge is the letter “F” positioned at the beginning or end of word. Here are my examples:

Fruit this photo was taken a few years ago at an apple orchard in Charlottesville, VA. The orchard is Carter Mountain Orchard and it is a wonderful place to visit if you are ever in the area.
