What a Wonderful World (Lens-Artists Photo Challenge 6-19-2021)

The theme for the Lens-Artists photo challenge is “What a Wonderful World” 

Amy shared the lyrics to Louis Armstrong ‘s “What A Wonderful World” and it has been in my mind all day. Quite a nice song to have as an earworm 🙂  – and quite a nice theme this week. 

I decided to use Armstrong’s  lyrics (similar to the way Amy did) throughout my post.

  1. Hi Yvette, This song must be on many people’s radar this past week, since I used it in my mini slideshow at the end of my last post. It is a great theme and a classic. A clever idea to add the treble clef and notes to the lyrics. Your photos depict a wonderful world in many ways. Thank you for my smile. ❤️

    1. Hi there – and it is so fun when themes (or songs) show up across the blogosphere – (and your slideshow was most enjoyable by the way)
      and I I did not spend too much time on this photos for this – which I think is part of something special – because all the photos are from one weekend of photos from earlier this spring. I thought about trying to connect more to some of the lyrics and then maybe using streets shots (people smiling or even shaking hands to connect with Armstrong’s words) but I found this photos in a snap and glad it had the small impact I hoped it would. TTYS

    1. thanks – that rose bush had some sort of issue (maybe fungal) not sure if you can see the spots on the leaves – and it had very few blooms – and so when I grabbed the photo fo that red rose it was just because it was nice to see on a shrub that was barely hanging on. Then I was glad to have a recent red rose image to share for the song connection

  2. The layout of your post with the song lyrics and pictures is so creative! Very you.
    The baby chicks are too cute. All babies, whether animals or humans, have an adorableness about them.
    Hope you have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

        2. Thanks Yvette! I appreciate you pointing out a phrase that you liked. As a writer, it warms the soul. 🙂
          Hope project “B” is making headway. Well, we got a major project coming up…not through our own volition. Ceiling water leak. Had no idea until Ellis pointed out the cracks and lumps.

    1. such a good point – things are much different this June – and last June there was so much fear, shock, unknown, and all that –
      whereas this year we are moving into post pandemic mode and like you said: “seems more wonderful this June than last June” and that is worth smiling about

    1. Hi anne – Amy did not even share the song – yet it played smoothly in my mind – – which reminded me that some of these classic songs are part of us in such special ways

  3. This was a perfect way to spotlight Louis Armstrong’s famous song alongside those images that he is singing about … see, in a world torn apart by so much dissension, it is nice to see the goodness in nature.

    1. well said Linda – and I almost went with street photography for this post – I had some folks hand shaking and different folks with blue skies – and all that – but quickly shifted gears to a folder with photos from around easter time this year – (hence the birds) and it just seemed to fit – and glad it did! It reminds me how we take photos and then when and how we share them is so up in the air
      💚

    1. Diane – same for me with the song when I left Amy’s post – she did not need to play it because I guess we all know it so well it can play in our mind
