Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #58 — Something Old, New Borrowed and Blue

A great challenge this week from Patti 😁

Something Old

This is the 16th Century Dovecote (Doocot in Scots), in the Glen, Cumbernauld.

Something New

The Riverside Museum on the banks of the Clyde in Glasgow, is the new Transport Museum.

Borrowed and Blue

Whilst in Malibu, this was my wife’s bike, aptly named Blue. I occasionally borrowed it to get to Malibu Country Mart.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #56 — Seascapes and/or Lakeshore

Hi all, must be Sunday, with another weekly challenge up! Thanks to Amy for the topic this week and for sharing her fantastic images with us all.

I have a strong affinity with the sea having worked on it for twenty years, and always find myself drawn back to it; be it in good weather or bad.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #54: Detail — The Glenlee

Hi all, and here we are with another weekly challenge. A big thanks to Patti for this week’s challenge: Detail — and of course her fantastic pictures from Italy 😁.

My immediate thoughts were to go with close-ups, showing the detail of objects. But, taking my lead from Patti, I thought back to my visit to the Glenlee.

Lens-Artists Weekly Challenge #53– Water

Another week and another fantastic challenge from our moderators: Tina, Pattimoed, Amy and Leya. As this is a post of our own choice — I choose water. Having been a Royal Naval Officer for twenty years, my affinity for the blue wobbly stuff is quite high. On a sliding scale, the larger the body of water, the happier I get (so ocean = woohoo 🙌). I presently live away from the coast and always yearn to get back there. When travelling, I still get that feeling of excitement and anticipation from that first glimpse of the ocean as I did as a child. I’m never happier than walking along miles of beach with my wife; come sun, snow, and even horizontal rain (we live in Scotland after all).

Lens-Artists Weekly Challenge — Serenity

A big thanks to Tina for this week’s challenge — Serenity, and also for her “most tranquil” photos (yep, it’s a Bill and Ted reference ðŸĪŠ). My thoughts on serenity are places that I’ve visited that bring a sense of calm in what can be an otherwise chaotic existence; places that take the mind elsewhere, be it to a different location or a cherished memory.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge — Unique

Hi all, and thanks to Amy for this week’s challenge — Unique — and thanks also for your images of the temple. I thought long and hard about what it means to be unique until I turned my attention to nature and soon realised that unique is everywhere. My entry for this weeks challenge doesn’t stop on one particular thing, but I guess you could say is a celebration of the vast variety of “uniqueness” out there (and yes, I do like galleries).

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge — Trees

Hi all, this is my first time posting for the photo challenge. I thought I’d start off with one that’s quite straight forward so opted for this week’s one entitled Trees. I often find that although not always the subject of a particular photo, they can form a very useful, natural picture frame (as seen in some of my pictures).
