Creativity in the Time of Covid

This week the Lens Artists Challenge is Creativity in the Time of Covid given to us by Tina at Travels and Trifles. One area of creativity that I have found during this pandemic is improving my photography and taking photos of things I do not normally take photos of. I did an online course with…

Winter!

Ann Christine has given us Lens- Artists #107 Challenge Winter. While I may think photos of winter are very pretty and picturesque winter is not my favorite season. I do not like the cold. I do not like driving in icy conditions or heavy snow. I do not like riding my horse in the cold…

Distance and Distancing

Physical distancing or self isolation has given me an opportunity to do things I do not normally do like going for long walks down our road with my husband and our puppy June. The morning was rainy but in the afternoon it was dry and we set off. The air was much warmer than the…

Here are my responses. “Outside the window is a world that beckons and inside the window is a world for which the outside yearns.”― Anthony T. Hincks When one door closes, another window opens.
