Lens Artists #84 – Narrow

This week we are invited to provide interpretations of narrow. In this first photo – there are 3 surfers (one a wipeout) on this wave and all narrowly escaped getting hurt by the riderless board

If you are ever in the Outer Banks and have a chance to climb one of the lighthouses, it’s a great experience but the stairway is extremely narrow. We’ve climbed this one a few times – Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

We can also look to nature for some examples – herons are such elegant birds but those stilt like legs can take on a comical look at times

Damselflies are beautiful and have an extremely narrow body which makes focusing on them difficult

Lens Artists #82 – Capitals

This week we are asked to provide photos that represent a capital. I’m going to start with the capital of the United States during colonial times which is Williamsburg, Virginia. This town is rich in the history of our country and has beautiful old buildings that have been restored.

We also had the opportunity a few years ago for a quick stop in San Juan and saw both old and less old structures

Lastly, my daughter, granddaughter and I spent a few days in Nashville, Tennessee which is not only the capital of the state but also considered the music capital of the world. Where else could I hang out with a wax figure of Kid Rock?
