Going back to Italy

Dan’s Thursday Doors

The doors of Italy. I must have some Italian blood as I just love going there every time I head to Europe. Let’s begin in Genoa with a very impressive doorway and a door that is dwarfed by the surrounding doorway.

A heraldic shield and impressive entrance in Verona

The wooden door from Milan with studs, brick arch and moulding

This could be a church door in Bologna

Pick a Word – December 2022

Lost in Translations Pick a Word

Paula’s words this month are quite varied giving you a chance to show different styles, parts of the world or around your place. That’s why I love this photo challenge so much.

How did I go this month. I know I have other photos that I prefer it’s just my present computer predicament that has me befuddled. If I get it sorted I might even have another go just for fun. Isn’t that what photo challenges should be?

Going on a treasure hunt

Lens-Artists Challenge #219: Treasure Hunt

Tina wants us to search for:-

  • A pet or pets (yours or someone else’s)
  • The moon or the sun (extra credit for both in one image)
  • Clouds (extra credit if you also include rain or snow)
  • A reflection
  • A child (extra credit if with other family members)
  • An umbrella (extra credit if you include a person using it)
  • A truck (extra credit if you include the driver or what the truck is hauling)
  • Autumn foliage (extra credit if it’s something that only blooms in the fall)
  • Something fun you found on a walk

I love Our Moon

Clouds with rain in the distance – extra credit photo 🙂

One of my favourite reflection photos

A little bee riding her horse at the Glen Innes show in the dress-up parade – extra credit photo as she is with her Mum 🙂

Models walking through Rome and I have no idea what they were advertising – extra credit as they are using their umbrellas 🙂

In the fire truck on their way to a fire or emergency – extra credit as you can see the driver 🙂

I don’t really have any Autumn leaves as I don’t really have Autumn here. These leaves are Autumn leaves in Lyon

Something I found on a walk on my place after the fires. First time I have ever seen Purple Fringe Lillies here.

It was fun going through my folders on this treasure hunt. A great idea Tina
