This Challenge is about linking images not only to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge but to other people who willingly put themselves to the huge amount of work in hosting challenges.
First a spectacular Bird of Paradise in flower for Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge. This was from my old glass-in deck which faced south. Now we are in an apartment that faces north-east and the plant no longer blooms. It is moving onto a brighter place – good-bye old friend.
For Brian aka Bushboy’s monthly Last Image On The Card I have the texture of grey bark with white oblong spots of a tree seen on my December 31st walk along a snowy Arbutus Corridor.
John Steiner hosts a weekly challenge, Cellpic Sunday which has only one requirement, the image(s) must have been made with a mobile device such as a cellphone or a drone. I rarely take photos with my ancient phone but occasionally use my iPad. Here is screen grab of my easel and visitors at my art studio during the Eastside Culture Crawl in November.
For Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week Challenge – Lights I am using the reflection of Christmas lights at Lafarge Lake in Port Coquitlam. I originally used this in a post for Cee’s and Jez’s Challenge: Water, Water Everywhere. I got me thinking about how I wanted to spend some time doing studies of water reflections which I am pursuing in a Sketch a Day for January 2021 Challenge that I am working on with a couple of artists in Vancouver.

Such great pictures, Elizbeth. Your last one of the lights reflected on the water is so bright and colorful, beautiful!
The challenge with the other artists sounds fun and the last image is my favorite of this post
I thought that I was one of the few people that was fascinated by rippling reflections but ‘lights reflected on the water’ was more popular than I expected…
Thanks, Elizabeth for joining in on Cellpic Sunday for your post this week. I especially like the closing photo of the lights reflecting on the water.
Feel free to join in on Cellpic Sunday anytime. As you know, there is no specific weekly theme, and iPad photos certainly qualify as a mobile device.
I often forget to take photos with my iPad but when I do I’m always surprised by how different the perspective is from my little camera that I carry everywhere. Definitely need to get it out more often…
I don’t use my iPad for photos much but I have noticed the difference in perspective you mention.
A wonderful selection Elizabeth. I have a series of water reflection abstracts that I do for Jez’s WWE. Your photo would fit into that. I love your Last Photo. Thanks for including Last on the Card in this posy 🙂 🙂
I’m absolutely fascinated by reflections on water so I’ll have to check out yours…
Thanks. Hope you have time
You’ve got a great photo (and I am sure many more) of that beautiful bird of paradise 😀 😀
For awhile I tried to post ‘plant of the month’ but that fell by the wayside. I have no idea how you manage to post ‘a flower a day’ and actually get out and take the photos as well, along with running the challenges and making comments. You are my hero!
Excellent choices Elizabeth. I especially loved the water reflections which you could have used for any number of challenges! Bummer about your beautiful bird-of-paradise. Thanks for double-dipping with us this week, appreciate your support as always.
My Bird of Paradise isn’t going very far away and I have specified visiting rights. It’s interesting, I felt the water reflections were too abstract for my post on the lights at Lafarge Lake but it seems they capture the festive feel maybe better than the actual lights themselves. Food for thought as always with your challenges…
