Dream Holidays — Lens-Artists Challenge #223

Hi all 😃 My entry for this week’s challenge, set by John of Journeys With Johnbo: Flights of Fancy.

My wife, Susan, grew up on re-runs of American 80s shows set around Santa Monica, Malibu & LA. This lead to dreams of visiting those places on holiday. Our first trip to the US together was to Houston, to A buffy the Vampire convention (yep, we’re nerds 🤓). After that, whilst still in the Navy, we made it across to Santa Monica & Malibu a few times. Susan has always been a huge fan of Ford Mustangs & we were able to rent them on our holidays.

Orchids — Lens-Artists Challenge #221 & FOTD

Hi all 😃 My entry for this week’s challenge, set by Ann-Christine: Flower Favourites & Why; this is also my post for Cee’s FOTD.

I have many favourites in the flower world, but I thought I’d concentrate on perhaps the most bizarre looking; the orchid. I think the appeal of orchids is the fact that some look decidedly otherwordly or from a different time period.
