WPC: Lines


 
We returned from the grandeur of Utah and Colorado this week (post to follow) just in time to enjoy the last few days of the Tulips of the Valley tulip festival in the beautiful Fraser Valley of British Columbia. Just in time also to meet this week’s Photo Challenge: Lines in which Cheri asks us to “share a photo with a composition dominated by lines — hard or soft, straight or curvy, vertical or horizontal, or made in nature…”.
 

 
Those of you who follow The Changing Palette may remember my post from last year The Flowers That Bloom in the Spring Tra La  when we visited the Tulips of the Valley festival almost exactly a year ago. It was a glorious day once again this year and one that needs to be be shared as the Lines for Cheri could not have been more brilliant in every way. Enjoy.

awakening

I have interpreted this week’s Photo Challenge: Awakening the best way I know how by sharing the joy of spending time in the studio last weekend with my beautiful, creative granddaughter who shows us all so perfectly how a box of paints, a few brushes, paper and a little water can awaken the artist in all of us.

love…that is.

“What’s your favourite place near or far,” we are asked for this week’s Photo Challenge.

Not surprisingly here are two of mine.
