Lens Artists Challenge – Art in the Park (and other places)

Journeys with Johnbo leads this week’s challenge with a focus on the arts. Public art in all its forms and locations whether in a park or a parking lot, an outdoor theater, or a street corner, art in public places can be found in communities worldwide. 

One place to find art is in a museum. A couple of years ago we visited the Cherokee Indian museum in Cherokee, NC. I found this tribal wear to be a stunning piece of art.

Stained glass has an artistic beauty all it’s own.

A friend of ours creates surfboard art. His boards are so beautiful that many of them are displayed rather than ridden.

I’m sure most of us have our favorite artists. Here’s mine 🙂


Lens Artists Challenge – Topic – Mood

Sofia is leading this week’s topic – Mood. There are a lot of ways this can be depicted in photos. In the first set of photos, I captured the change of the weather on the beach in a matter of 15 minutes. Our mood went from that of “watch and wait- it might pass” to one of fear that we might not get off the beach quick enough.

Night time photos can provide a sense of calm and rest.

Some of the happiest photos are ones of smiling dogs!! These loving animals can bring joy just by seeing their tails wag and happy faces! Their love is so unconditional.
