Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Monochrome

This week, Patti has chosen Monochrome as the subject for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.  Without the distraction of color (at a very colorful event) I can concentrate on capturing the strength of features and character in the faces. Pictures taken at a local Pow Wow in Elk Grove Village a few years ago.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Small is Beautiful

This week, Amy has chosen ‘Small is Beautiful’ as the topic for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.  I didn’t need to search the photo files for this one. The choice was obvious. Our youngest granddaughter, just a few days old, small and beautiful.  For more on this photo challenge go to #11: Small Is Beautiful.

One Word Photo Challenge – Elder

Jennifer has chosen ‘elder’ as the subject for this week’s One Word Photo Challenge.  Merriam-Webster’s definition of the noun elder is ‘One having authority by virtue of age and experience’ and, according to Wikipedia, American Indian elders are revered as repositories of cultural and philosophical knowledge. With extraordinary grace, energy and pride, these members of the American Indian Community have set a fine example by keeping their culture alive and meaningful for a new generation.
