Lens Artist Photo Challenge 10/8/18 Windows

I think this might be cheating (or maybe just a shortcut) but I cannot get WordPress to cooperate this morning. It is refusing to give me access to my own photos.

But I remembered this post I did about my house, quite a while back and thought maybe it would qualify.

Here’s a quote from it. I hope you’ll want to read the rest and see my favorite windows.

She has 32 windows. From 20 of those, you can see right into other windows in the house.

Just think about that for a minute.

Thanks.

Lens-Artist Photo Challenge 13–Look Up

In responding to this week’s Lens Artist Photo Challenge-theme “Look Up”, I was overwhelmed with the beauty of  two posts I saw.

Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: #13 Look Up

And then I was overwhelmed by how many choices I had in my own files that would be good for this challenge. Apparently, I spend a lot of time “looking up”…and snapping away!

I love all the references in both the above posts to perspective and how changing yours can change everything else also. That really speaks to me. So I am changing mine on this challenge. Nothing I have compares to the stunning beauty of these Cathedrals. Thank you so much for sharing those. But it all reminded me, once again, of my own favorite accidental photo. I have posted it before but will again for this challenge.

I’ll just add the words “look carefully” whenever you Look Up!

Eagle Peek a boo

In case you have not seen this before, (I post this photo a lot), I did not discover the whole content of the photo until I was posting it for the word Blossoms…

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge-Fences

I went looking for photos of fences but just don’t have many. Then it occurred to me that I live in a neighborhood where there are none.

I like that.

My house is the oldest one around for many miles. It’s on a long, dead-end street. We have a neighborhood email and phone list. We keep in touch regarding unusual neighborhood activity (fake solicitors, coyote and bobcat sightings, lost or found pets, etc.) For Halloween and other holidays, the children (and now grandchildren) on the street are the priority with trick-or-treating and caroling! And next weekend is our annual cider-making party. We usually hand press about 50 gallons of juice from the apple trees my neighbor and I share!!

This is the boundary line between my closest neighbor and myself.

I mean, if there were fences, how could we wander through each other’s yards to see each other’s gardens, and to say Hi? Or to watch out for each other, or take a short cut to the next street over?

And how would we check on each other’s animals?

and to photograph flowers?

or be inspired by yard art?

How would the deer get into our yards to clean up the wind fall apples?

I love my street and my neighbors. There just are not many fences on my regular, daily trails.

But I did finally find these in my files…

So my conclusion is apparently…Fences? For me, no thanks..
