Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: Planes, Trains and Automobiles and the Places They Take Us

This week John has given us a challenge involving modes of transportation and the places they take us.

I found this 1931 Ford Model A at a local festival a couple of years ago. It was being displayed by the son of the original owner.

Anyone for a guided tour of Charleston?

Bikes are for rent to get around the campus of the Medical University of South Carolina and the College of Charleston.

It’s a steep trip on the Incline on the way up and down Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Hot air balloon rides were available at a festival outside Ravenell, South Carolina. The lines were very long so we didn’t wait around.

Windsurfing isn’t a typical way to get around but it looks like a cool way to spend a day at the beach.

My grandson is a huge fan of anything with wheels. I designed and made this blanket for him for Christmas and it’s the only blanket he’ll sleep with now. It’s available for sale at

Regular Random – Five Minutes with a Puzzle

The rules are to choose a subject or a scene and spend five minutes photographing it at different angles, lighting etc without interfering with the subject.

Desley Jane hosts this challenge and you can find her here:

What could be more fun than puzzles with my grandson?  We “oinked”, “woofed”, “clucked” and “neighed” all weekend with some “choo choos” and “vroom, vrooms” thrown in too.
