~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #121: Focus on the Subject ~

For this week’s challenge I took an extended look back through my archives. Although one photo is a repeat, my goal was to provide fresh images.

Lines draw us into the scene

On our drive to Long Beach we cross over the John Day River at a point where there is a small community of boat houses, which became the subject of an afternoon photo adventure.

Patterns and colors draw our eye to the lighthouse

When it’s not shrouded in fog, North Head Lighthouse is visible from the beach where Jello and I walk. The mist was just burning off when I took this shot.

Doorways, arches & windows provide a focal point.

The view out to the Pacific Ocean from inside the North Head Lighthouse is one of my favorites.

Selective focus.

This Escargot captured my attention as it glided across a pathway. Both foreground and background are blurred, keeping our attention on the snail with its lovely crown.

Patterns and contrast.

You can barely see her, but that little black figure at the top of the path is Jello!

Looking right at you.

I’ll finish with this striking photo of a mature Bald Eagle letting me know to keep my distance!

Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate uncharted waters.🐾

    Great choices, Lindy! My favorites are the lighthouse window and the little Jello spot. But the eagle is magnificent, and…
