~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #214: Favourite Finds ~


This week Anne-Christine invites us to look about our world (or dip into our archives) for photos of unusual and interesting things, surprises that captured our imagination. My first image is of a piece of blown glass art depicting a treble clef, a gift years ago from me to my musical hubby.

As I walk the beach I see all kinds of natural wonders and also human designs which I put into the category “found art.” I take the picture and wonder “when will I ever use this in a challenge?” Well today is the day, and this is the time to feature two beach creations, long ago washed over in sand and out to sea.

The bunny bench, below made me laugh out loud when I saw it. Very clever, and certainly fitting to a part of the country where rabbits abound!

Rye-grass dunes leading to the beach catch my eye when there is still a bit of morning mist glittering in the sun. Many times I’ve tried to capture the impression, often with less than satisfactory results. Here are three that come close, with the added pleasure of an immature Bald Eagle and a glimpse of dear Jello.

My archives are loaded with photos of birds – various types, in all kinds of weather, alone and in flocks. So I’ll end this post with a quirky snap of a Red-necked Phalarope, head in the water with its lovely little tail reflected in the blue pond.

Wherever you find fun and interesting surprises, please honor our earth, be kind and stay safe.🐾

Thank you Anne-Christine for providing a reason to show some of my off-beat photos! This has been fun.

    So glad you had fun with it, Lindy! You always come up with interesting posts! I think you made the best of the morning dew there, I must admit I also try to catch it…but maybe it will remain an “almost”, much because of the feeling and mood that cannot show properly in a picture? The treble clef is just gorgeous – I bet he was happy! And the bunny bench – the best smile today!
