Lens-Artists host this week, Patti, has given us an interesting challenge: Pick a color and choose photos with objects of that color from large (like a wall or a building) to small (like a mushroom or an earring). I picked two colors: White and Pink.
Largest: a snowy landscape
Large: a round white barn…
…and its door
Medium: Our niece’s wedding dress (with blue embroidered flowers!)
Smallish: Styrofoam chest with ribs and intestines
Small: Flower – hydrangea blossoms
Large: Pink building façade
A little less large: Pink ice cream truck, “The Original Rainbow Cone”
Medium, whole: Andy Warhol cat
Medium, in pieces: Bridal Shower Jeopardy
Medium, Pretty: frilly dresses & Medium, Patterned: 60s dresses
Medium, delicious: Birthday cake
Jude at Travel Words’ challenge Life in Color changes colors each month. For June, it is white and silver!
LARGE white & silver – snow scene & giant winery canisters
MEDIUM: white vs silver trees
MEDIUM SMALL: white angel on child’s grave & silver headlight
SMALL: February silver (ice circles) vs April white (snowdrop flowers)
BOTH in one photo!

I think I am late for this one, but I’m participating anyway! Lens-Artists’ Photo Challenge #146 is to focus on the details.
In 2019, we took a Viking river cruise, which started in Amsterdam and took us down part of the Rhine River. Our first stop in Germany was in Cologne, with its fabulous cathedral. Its imposing towers can be seen rising above the rest of Cologne’s buildings, this photo taken from our cruise ship as we arrived in the morning.
Officially named the Cathedral Church of St. Peter, this Gothic architectural wonder took centuries to build. Construction began in 1268 but was halted around the middle of the 16th century. It was finally finished in 1880, remaining true to its medieval plan, and at 157 meters (515 ft) it is the third tallest church in the world. It was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.
Its façade contains a dizzying number of carved details, none of which are the same. (And these are all on its exterior!)

On Monday, Ludwig hosts his weekly challenge Monday Window. I looked in my archives and kept coming across window pairs. Here are a few of them, taken in Brazil, Mont St-Michel (France), Amsterdam, and Germany.
Jude’s Travel Words blog’s Life in Colour challenge this month is the color pink, and this week’s focus is on pink architecture.
I found a lot of pink buildings (and other colors) in Germany, when we were on a river cruise. These three are in Bamberg.
More in Nuremburg
Here’s a lovely balcony in Regensburg.
These are in Passau.
And finally, much closer to home, is a pink painted shop in Highwood, Illinois.
Here’s the doorway:
I have not participated in Thursday Doors for awhile, in spite of my passion for doors! However, due to the pandemic, I haven’t had a chance to photograph any doors. So in keeping with the (new) host Sherry, I have delved into my archives for some red doors – and I’m sure I have posted some of them in the past, but never together!
