“Each Saturday the Lens-Artists team presents an opportunity for our followers and/or visitors to add their images and accompanying thoughts on a subject for all to see. This week we’re suggesting that in addition to our challenge, you explore and link to some of the other creative opportunities our friends and fellow challengers make available in the WP blogosphere (or any other sites where you post images).” – Tina Schell of Travels and Trifles
I think the greatest lesson that I’ve learned during this pandemic is that Community is essential to individual mental health and resilience and may be the key to understanding how to live in harmony with Life on a larger scale. So what better way to practice Community Building in my photo hobby than to check out and participate on other photo challenges and get to know new bloggers around the globe?
I followed the link on Tina’s page to find the Last Image on the Card challenge hosted by Bushboy (Brian). The last image I made with my Canon Rebel t3I was shot on December 27, in my driveway. This is what I saw:
It’s an historic photo, I guess, because this kind of snowfall is not typical for mid-Willamette Valley, Oregon. It’s a fitting reminder of how unusual 2021 was…and how unpredictable 2022 will be. Let’s keep our eyes open and our community growing!
Nicely said and shown Priscilla – I love the focus on community-building. It’s perfect for this week’s challenge. Personally I think one big snowfall in a year is the perfect number LOL.
Thanks, Tina! Yeah, I’m liking the change from Wisconsin snow and cold very much. 😉
There’s a driveway under there!!! That is a wonderful snowy Last Photo Priscilla. Thanks for joining in 🙂 🙂
Yes, there is – a gravel one. Thanks for your welcome! 🙂
Amazing words and image Priscilla.. Thanks Anita
Thank you, Anita!
Beautiful snow image Priscilla! Community is everything during this pandemic. We all need to have a sense of belonging.
Thanks, Anne. Ain’t that the truth!
Well it looks like a place trust was designed for snow – such a pretty scene with the snow on the trees (and imagining the driveway under there is crazy)
Cheers to community and connecting in 2022
I didn’t drive on that for 4 days. 😉 Cheers!
wow – four days! that is a lot of snow
Snow that became slush and re-froze into ice…yeah.
Thanks for the photo of the pine trees. And have a great New Year. Love, Aunt Sandy P.S. In the spring when the dogwoods bloom, I’ll send you a photo of the “in Memoriam” dogwood tree planted in your mother’s memory at my church, St Mary’s in Tuxedo (NY.)
Thanks, Aunt Sandy – I would love to see a photo of that memorial dogwood tree!
Great words a image!!!
Thanks, Ana! I really like your image of the Goya statue. It really stands out against the fog in a striking way. 🙂
Thank you for sharing great words dear.
You’re welcome! 🙂
