~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #196: Humor ~


Life would be so drab without a touch of humor here and there, and occasionally a good belly laugh. This week John Holmes, aka JohnRH of John’s Space asks us to look on the lighter side and share a bit of frivolity through our photography.

As I watched this wren start to gyrate in one of my bird baths I was captivated. Soon it went from a little splatter to what you see above, a full-fledged splash party! By the time it was finished, I was laughing out loud.

The fanciful garden containers (above) caught my attention and brought a smile to my face, as did the comical re-purposed metal sculpture (below) of a dog relieving itself!

Long Beach Peninsula artist Sue Raymond, creates these small whimsical sculptures in clay. No two are alike, and each one exhibits a unique take on life. They consistently tickle my funny-bone!

In conclusion, what’s not to love about frogs?!

This metal sculpture of a frog on its concrete lily pad reading is an absolute favorite of mine. It’s in front of the local branch of our Vancouver, WA library. Since I took this shot the lily pad has been painted green. I like the original look better, but hey it’s still fun, playful, whimsical, light-hearted and fanciful. Who could ask for anything more?

Wherever your sense of humor takes you, please honor our earth, be kind and stay safe.🐾

Thanks to John for keeping us balanced with a bit of humor to offset all the yucky stuff going on in our world.

    Ha! You’ve made a splash! I love the creatures, and what’s not to love about a frog, that reads books!!! Excellent, Lindy.

    Fun choices Lindy – I especially loved the little frog reading – how perfect for a library! (like you I would prefer that they’d left the rock naturally colored but hey, it’s still a perfect choice!)
