Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #159: Postcards

I’ve resized all of these photos so that they are now 5 by 7 inches- the perfect size for a postcard. I respectfully submit them to Guest Host Anvica’s Gallery for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #159: Postcards.

We will not discuss the outrage of January 6, 2021 here. To the right is the botanical garden- a truly magnificent place!
I guess the sky could have been a little more blue, but this is an angle of the Maryland State House that one doesn’t usually see.
Sunrise on the Chesapeake Bay. It the far distance, you can see the Bay Bridge- a great feat in engineering!

Lens-Artists Challenge #156: Black and White

Here are may humble contributions to Lens-Artists Challenge #156: Black and White. Taken as a whole, or each individually, I am trying to say something about the absence of color.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Spots & Dots #148

The purpose of the artist is to leave the world a little more beautiful than when he found it.

The incredible Watts Towers above and below. The minute I heard “spots & dots,” I thought of Watts!

Photographed last January, I never got around to posting this lovely orchid until now. It’s loaded with lots of spots and dots.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #147 : Gardens

I’ve always loved gardens. I like gardens that have little statues in them besides just flowers. Here are my contributions to Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #147: Gardens.

It’s a bit blurry, but I think the boy in the center, leaning against the log, is holding a squirrel.
A nice variety of begonias

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.

There’s an older version of this nursery rhyme where the last line reads, “Sing cuckolds all in a row.”
