Lens-Artist Photo Challenge – Wonder

I’ve been participating in the WordPress Photo Challenges for over two years and was very disappointed to hear that WordPress was no longer going to host the weekly challenge.  The challenges provided an opportunity for bloggers and photographers to discover each other and share our work.  And I’ve picked up lots of tips and ideas for new projects.     

Luckily, four wonderful bloggers – photographer/artists – have taken up the “challenge” so to speak and will take turns hosting the challenge each week.  They are –

Week 1 – Patti of https://pilotfishblog.com/
Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya of https://lagottocattleya.wordpress.com/
Week 3 – Amy of https://shareandconnect.wordpress.com/
Week 4 – Tina of https://travelsandtrifles.wordpress.com/

This week, Patti has given us the prompt “wonder”.  We’ve been asked to create a post that captures a moment, a feeling, a place, a person—that fills us with wonder.

The beach is that place for me.  I visit at least three or four days a week.  Sometimes hubby and I spend the day under the umbrella with sandwiches and watermelon for lunch and sometimes I walk alone.  Sometimes, it’s the clouds and the sky that capture my attention.  Sometimes it’s the birds and some days it’s the children playing in the sand and surf.

Regardless of the circumstances, each visit I leave calm, relaxed and uplifted, filled with wonder at the day spent at the beach.

Photo Challenge – Bridges

This week we are asked to capture any type or style of bridge.

Under the Ravenell Bridge

I live an hour north of Charleston but travel there at least once a month.  The Arthur Ravenell Jr bridge connecting Charleston and Mt. Pleasant fascinates me and I often stop for pictures.  You can see the bridge from downtown Charleston and there’s a park underneath the bridge on the Mt. Pleasant side.  I’ve also walked a portion of it twice.

You can see previous posts of the bridge from these links:

Photo Challenge – Transient

This week we are asked to share a photo of our interpretation of “transient”.

Gray Clouds and Waves

Clouds come and go as do the waves.  The beach is forever transient, ever changing and always a new source of inspiration.

From dark to light, always reminding us how small we are in this thing called life.

Hurricane Matthew

We were extremely lucky.  Other than yard debris, we had no damage.  The tree belonged to our neighbor across the street and that’s hubby with the chainsaw.

Others in our neighborhood were not as lucky and most are still without power.  Two days without power was enough for me!

The photo on the left was taken during a lull in the storm.  The photo on the right was taken the day after.
