Three Favorites

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge July 31 host is Sarah asking for three of our favorite photos. I humbly consider myself an amateur photographer, but I enjoy taking pictures this first one has a memory; I would like to forget but do I really want to forget? Happened one day during a major snow storm, and I noticed my bird feeder, as seen below. As soon as I captured the image, the snow fell off my metal roof and knocked me over. My camera bounced into the deep snow, and I was shocked but unhurt.

Ta-da! Number two, I was visiting the cemetery, and right next to it was this large wheat field with this spectacle as seen in my photo. As luck was on my side, I had my camera and captured it not for the moment but forever.

Number three below — You may have seen this image before on my blog, it is a pathway hidden within and waiting to be discovered as one walks along the many acres of treasured land high on a hill overlooking Spokane on Mount Saint Michael Church property.

“Only God can make a TREE.”

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

― Chinese proverb

Reaching down to grab you, it seems!

A holy Tree

No! Not an elephant trunk, but a tree trunk
Yew Tree, the only image plucked from the internet

Yew-Tree Print Article

An evergreen tree of the genus taxus, allied to the pines, and valued for its wood or timber, is very commonly found planted in the old English churchyards; and was formerly much used to decorate churches at Christmas, Palm-Sunday, and Easter.

A Wish to come true! #WDYS

Solid and sturdy steps lead up/down through giant pillars gracefully holding up the golden arches year after year. If they could speak but one word, it would be “everlasting.”
Imagine the stories these columns would tell! Day after day, people pass under the grand vaults, some happy and free, others not so much!
I wonder if I will ever walk into the picture and pass under the golden arches; if so, I will make a wish. Until that time, I will consider what that wish might be.

GEOMETRIC! shapes!

The story that goes with my photo, first what is more geometric than a trellis? Some years back while looking for something interesting to photograph, I took a picture of and through my trellis; with the help of my photo editor, added one bird for interest.

After that I continued walking around the property and next door was a basketball net, my grandsons played with, (yes, they live right next door, I am truly blessed). A few weeks later my son was working in the garage and I decided, why not take the picture, lots of geometric there too!

Thank you Terri Webster Schrandt who always is thinking of fun things to blog about.

#PPAC what is it? A fun challenge of Public Art

See ANNOUNCEMENT

This seems like fun to me and living in Spokane, there is a lot of public art, like this ancient rock that I drive by every time I venture out.

The story as I see it!
I imagine someone; one day saw this rock. They suspected it some creature that needed an eye, and I believe they took the time to create an eye.

Below is a close up of the gifted artist’s work.

I love it! I hope you do also!

true story, Word Prompts

The word today— SASHAY

A little story to share! It all started several months ago when my neighbors’ pet duck wandered over to my yard and made a nest under my porch. She gathered pine needles and felt quite safe. I waited in wonder what would happen next and this week she came out from down under with 12 little ducklings sashaying behind her.

One of the small miracles of life; these 12 tiny fuzzy little creature and how they all stick together following their mother wherever she goes. I am enjoying watching them. They have become the delight of my life; you might say, my life must be pretty dull if a few ducklings can bring such joy.

No, not dull, yet, raised in Chicago this touch of rare country living God permitted me; His tender tending His creatures reminds me of this Bible verse. “Behold the birds of the air, for they neither sow, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns: and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not you of much more value than they?” [Matthew 6:26]

Lens—Artists my delicate image

This amazing image was captured a few days ago as I drove down a country road.

A tree growing out of a dead stump, I titled it “Resurection”; a reminder of how our bodies will rise again as the Catholic Creed promises.

I believe … “The resurrection of the body, and life everlasting, Amen”.
