Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #132: Striped/Checked

Welcome to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge!  The theme for this week’s Challenge is Striped/Checked!

“After a beautifully emotional week with Patti, I thought we would make this week’s challenge very straight-forward – but hopefully fun as well. We find Striped and Checked everywhere around us, but maybe this is so common a pattern that we don’t notice it if we don’t go looking for it? One thing is clear though – I love these patterns, but remember that my children used to hate them. Today, our whole family often use a mix of striped and checked clothes as well as interior decoration. So, here we are – what about you?”

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #91: Simplicity

Welcome to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge!  The theme for this week’s Challenge is Simplicity.

“As the coronavirus pandemic spreads and intensifies, many of us around the world are spending a lot of time at home, following governmental regulations to shelter in place.  More and more of us feel like we’re returning to a simpler time–cooking our own meals, playing board games, reading (and re-reading) the classics, cleaning the house, and taking up hobbies like knitting, sewing, and gardening.  For me, this time also highlights the value of simplicity.  This week, for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #91, we’re getting back to basics.  Show us what simplicity means to you.

Nothing says “nostalgic look back in time” here in Victoria, BC than the “remember that snow of XXXX?”  Here’s a look back at past snowfalls (hint:  one of them is NOT from Victoria!)
