It’s been over at month since we celebrated the wedding of our older daughter in Baja California. Besides the wedding, there was a lot of beauty on offer as you’ll see in these photos for Patti’s Lens-Artists theme this week of “Splash!” There was some rather nice light, too.

As tempted as I was to go with a beautiful morning in the park or a stunning sunset, I decided to go with the lights I saw a few years ago looking out at LA from Griffith Planetarium with my daughter.  I thought the shot turned out rather well, considering it was taken with my iPhone 5s.

And then while I was scrolling, I found this photo, a complete opposite, so I thought I’d feature them both for contrast.

Then I decided to go with one more and yes, it’s from the park.  After that, I decided I’d better stop, even though I had a lot more.  🙂  Have a happy, blessed Monday filled with magical light.

for One Word Sunday and Lens-Artist Challenge: Blending in or Standing Out

Tina’s challenging us to go big this week and as we flew back from California and the BIG weekend wedding in Baja, California, I looked out the window of our Southwest plane to see this big, beautiful view of the Rockies.   It wasn’t as beautiful as the wedding, but it was pretty darn good!

Windows can be as interesting as doors as I hope I show with these diverse photos from Luxeuil.  Yes, we’re still on almost the first day of my trip.  But there’s so much to share!

This window has someone living on the inside and someone on the outside!

Do you recognize the man with the weight of the world (or at least a tower) on his shoulders?

Normally on Monday I’d be walking with Jo, but with our younger daughter home, we’ll be biking at the Indiana Dunes again today and as I get a post ready on Sunday night, I’ve decided to go with the Lens Artists Challenge of action.  Here are two different action shots for your viewing enjoyment.

Flying high

for the Lens Artists Challenge: Action

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge was created to fill a bit of the emptiness left when WordPress discontinued the Weekly Photo Challenge.  This week’s word is “blue” and this is my offering from the Washington Memorial Chapel in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.

From Patti’s site:

For this week’s challenge, share your interpretation of blue—the color, the mood, or the time of day.  It’s up to you!

  • In your post, include a link to this challenge.
  • Use the tag “Lens-Artists” in your post.  If you use a different tag, other bloggers won’t find your post in the Reader and that would be a shame.  Also keep in mind that you should use fewer than 15 tags for your post or it won’t appear in the Reader.  For more information on how to tag, click here.
  • Ann-Christine will post the next challenge on Saturday, August 11th.
