Sunday Trees & Landscape Photos (Lens-Artist #31)

Happy Sunday Bloggers, 

the theme for the Lens-Artists Photo A Week Challenge is Landscape this week.

Here is my take: 

SUNRISE in my Virginia neighborhood (Fall 2018)
SUNSET in some Pennsylvania neighborhood (Fall 2016) I took this photo after going to a funeral in Buffalo, New York (Darrin passed away – post is here). I was able to see some family on the visit, which included seeing my nephew on the very last day. Little did I know that I’d be going to that same nephew’s funeral four months later. 😦


❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎This is my nephew, W, in the late 1990’s – when he visited us in Colorado – these photos were taken at Red Rocks Park. I feel like it was a nice coincidence that the word for the lens-artist this week was “landscape” because this week is the anniversary of his passing and I can have this little remembrance photo shared in honor of him. 🙂 ❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎

And this photo is to join in with Cee’s B&W for Construction (November 2018 – Virginia). Seeing the construction underway is sometimes a nice reminder of how we “can” repair and preserve structures (and many things in life, eh?) – and it reminds me how adversity CAN lead to many good things – “we lose, but we also can have many wins.” And all things can work together “for” good…. 


Okay – let’s wrap up with a little cartoon humor:

  1. Love the landscapes and the tongue in cheek humour, Yvette! I hope we don’t see ordering speakers in remote areas, or uber eats, or such like. Wilderness areas are prized for being just that – wilderness, aren’t they?. Have a great Sunday.

  2. Beautiful landscape photos, Yvette! The cartoon humor is funny, some people want the convenience to the wilderness , wishful thinking! 🙂

  3. Hilarious cartoons and a good way to celebrate life well lived. Colorado a great state for mountains and wilderness. Brings back memories. God Sunday to you.

  4. So sorry about your nephew but what a nice tribute. You’ve definitely got some beautiful landscapes here and those cartoons made me laugh! “Far enough into the wilderness, my cell phone died.” 😂 Oh, wait, that’s serious! 🙀

      – the first picture most reminds me of how timing matters – I was there at the right time that morning – it all rolled out within the hour

      1. yes, timing is super important. Early morning is best for those shots. I’m not a morning person at all. I appreciate seeing photos from those who are able to get up and out so early. 🙂

  5. I love that first shot. So many colors in the grass, such an amazing ceiling on those clouds. Beautiful. Must have been absolutely stunning standing there in person.

    1. Hi Joey, thanks for your feedback. It was not that stunning and I almost missed it – just passing by – waking up still – and thought, “hey, that’s pretty…”
