One Word Sunday: black

For this week’s Lens-Artists Challenge, Sofia’s theme is “Looking back.” I’m looking back at both history and my family with a copy of a photo of my great-great grandfather, John Keehn (Kuhn), originally from Denburg, Germany. He was in Company F-8 Regiment Indiana Volunteer Cavalry in the Civil War. Maybe that’s where I get my love of horses. 😉

Wild animals often look back to be sure nothing is sneaking up on them. But they can’t escape a telephoto!

I wonder what’s ruffling his feathers?

If you have an itch, you have to look back and scratch it!

Just checking.

Not worried yet but keeping my options open.

Leaving Yosemite some years ago, I looked back and was rewarded by this rather special view.

If you want to participate in this week’s Lens Artists Challenge, click on the highlighted link at the beginning of this post and show us what you see when you look back.

I’m not sure if we’re doing Six-Word Saturday today but even if Debbie isn’t, I am. Today’s another big day for us as our grandson is getting baptized. It’s also our last day in California. Sunday we head back home. It’s been an amazing time. Thanks for putting up with my periodic absences these last few days. As Arnold says, “I’ll be back” to blogging soon. 🥰

Patti’s set us a challenge today, that of sharing photos the convey emotion. I don’t take lots of photos of people, but humans aren’t the only ones who express emotions. What emotions do you see?

Can’t resist a reprise of my W.C. Fields cactus. 🙂

Su from Zimmerbitch nominated me for this travel photo challenge. We’re not just traveling today, the two in the photo are as well. Today I nominate Drake at ledrakenoir to post ten travel photos, no explanation required. You may accept or decline. 🙂 If you accept, please link back to this post. Cheers.

Phew! Patti, I think you win the award for the looooongest title challenge to date, at least that I’ve seen.

I’m featuring photos from Illinois today and although I know most of you expect nature when you come here, what could be more iconicalyl Illinois than the Arcs and Arches of the Bean in Chicago? It’s a mind-bending Awesome Artistic beauty.

These Architectural features (and yes, you could say Arcs again) are found in the Art Institute of Chicago.

Let’s close with a two-fer: Animals in a nature Alley.
