Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #57: Taking a Break

Some of you may have noticed that I only posted one photo early this morning. (At least early my time.) That’s because I have found myself exhausted by always putting up at least two posts a day. So I’ve given myself permission to only put up one post, if that is what I feel like doing. My older daughter, son-in-law, grandkids and I are going away for a four day weekend before school starts again for the kids. I’ve scheduled single posts per day through next Monday, so if I don’t want to add any more, I can relax for 5 days while we all are on a mini vacation, plus the additional first day that I’m back. I might be checking in on comments, etc, but if I don’t, I’ll catch up when I return.

Here is an idyllic photo of a bench and the lake to add to the challenge. Wishing you all a good 5 days!

Blue Squares: Staring Into the Beautiful Blue Sky

My contribution to Becky’s #Blue Squares Challenge.

I not only fell in love with the contrast of the green building and the beautiful blue sky, but I was captivated by the pattern of the wispy white clouds as well. We’ve had an unusually long and wet winter and spring, with mostly gloomy skies. This was one of the first beautifully clear days.
