Rope • Chaos • Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #88

Leading Lines • Lens-Artists Challenge #80. In this week’s edition Tina’s line ‘It’s not so much what you put into your image as it is where you want the viewer’s eye to go and how you get them there’ almost leapt off the page.

A River Runs Through It • Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #89

Quay at the River Maas • Lens-Artists#89

Amy’s challenge of ‘A River Runs Through It’ made me think at first of that wonderfully melodramatic Springsteen song ‘The River’. For those who want to relive that wonderfully, cynically romantic mood again, I’ve included a link to my favorite performance of it. Ah, those childhood memories of innocently skinny dipping in the river Eem … Continue reading A River Runs Through It • Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #89
