Jez’s Reflections #3 and WWE #76

All of the photographs on this post were taken on a foggy February morning in the year 2020. Recently re-discovered, I felt certain that they’d make a good show for Jez Braithwaite’s Reflections and Water Water Everywhere challenges.

Becky’s Bright Squares Challenge #19

Becky B from the blog Life of B has been hosting the April Bright Squares Challenge. It’s been enormous fun.

Now for a square on a smaller scale…

Becky’s Bright Square Challenge: April 2, 2021

Here are my offerings for Becky B’s Bright Square Challenge.

According to my photo editor, this picture is a perfect square but here it looks longer than wide to me. I don’t know why that is. For some reason, lately I’ve been drawn to images that have a bit of glare in them. I took this photo over a year ago at a neighborhood called Bay Ridge that looks over the glorious Chesapeake Bay.

This photo is a play on words. Not only is it square, but I snapped it at a shopping center called Harbor Square!

Jez’s Fan of… Challenge #103

I’m a big fan of early lifeforms such as mosses and lichens (pronounced liken.)

Let’s take a closer look. Mosses, much like plankton (the earliest form of plant life) are highly dependent on an immediate supply of water.

Here we have some pretty pink buds alongside another, hardier moss.

Next we have lichens which are a beautiful example of symbiosis between algae (or cyanobacteria) living among filaments of multiple fungi species. Lichens have properties different from those of their component organisms. Wikipedia

Normally brought to us by Buddha Walks into a Wine Bar, this weeks challenge, Elemental is brought to us by HopsSkipsandJumps and is based on the Ancient Greek conception of all matter: air, water, earth and fire. Here are my meagre contributions.
