LAPC: The Lazy Days of Summer

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #104 is about summer. Ah, summer! My favorite season of the year! Even with the distancing measures of Covid-19, I can enjoy the summer.

CFFC: Mostly Monochrome

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge continues with the theme of colors. This week the topic is basically one  color or hue. This photo was not shot nor edited black & white. The trees and clouds actually looked like this on a spring day in northern Wisconsin. Turtles at The Grove visitors’ center, Mt. Prospect, IL Chinese […]
