Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #117 – A Photo Walk

This week Amy is taking us on a walk – a photo walk. What a brilliant idea!

In order to distract myself and lift my spirits, we decided to go to Borås last Friday – a lovely little town we hadn’t visited for years.

Leaving your garage to meet this charming lady might be a not so bad start of the day…
Alfred Nobel – I heard today that the Nobel Prize for medicine went to three scientists: Harvey J. Alter, Michael Houghton and Charles M. Rice, who discovered the virus giving hepatitis C – and making it a curable disease.
A discovery of great importance – we need more of those.
This mural was painted on a school building – It surely makes the school days brighter!
Back on the parking after an enjoyable tour – Autumn had left its mark.

The whole day I had been on the lookout for the Swan and the Fox, but it seemed nowhere to be found. I had found it on the Internet plan and was eager to see it with my own eyes too. In fact, after two hours I had given up on it by the time we were approaching the end of the walk. But, on turning right into the last street before the car park, I caught a glimpse of it in the corner of my left eye – there it was! Sitting on our left hand side, it obviously was impossible to find on our way out. So, now you too can see it, in the header. It was my favorite on this Friday walk.

As always, thank you all for your creative responses to last week’s Symmetry challenge. We enjoyed your interesting and thoughtful images for the concept. I am sorry to be a bit absent from commenting – I lost my mother in September and my mind is focused on everything connected to that. But I will be back. I am sure Patti, Tina and Amy will support you even more.

Now we look forward to seeing your results from this week’s Photo Walk. Please remember to link them to Amy’s original post here, and to Tag them Lens-Artists to be included in our reader section. Last but not least, we hope you’ll join us next week when our special guest host, Biasini, Anne Leueen’s clever horse, hosts our next challenge on her always-interesting blog Horse Addict.

Until then, stay safe and creative.

  1. What fantastic murals, Ann-Christine! Artwork on a spectacular scale. On a more serious note, I was so sorry to read of the sad loss of your mother. My most sincere condolences to you and your family.

    • I think that is a great idea. I live in too small a village to have a festival in – but here it was lovely. How great you have festival every year!

  2. I enjoyed seeing such great murals, Ann-Christine, especially the swan and the fox. What a lovely town; wonderful to know it provided a little bit of enjoyment for you.

  3. What a unique collection of photo walk images. So colorful too. Yes, walks can provide a needed – and comforting – distraction. I am glad you found some solace during this one. Take care.

  4. I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother. May her memory be a blessing. I love building murals and these are beautiful and wonderfully captured. We have the Wide Open Walls yearly festival in Sacramento. It just amazes me how artists can paint such beautiful scenes in such a large format. Take care!

    • Thank you, Anne. And I have the same thoughts – how is it possible to get the scale right in a format you cannot see when you paint? Back off half a kilometer to see it properly…

  5. Hard to find something to lift the spirits at a time like this, Ann Christine. You always give such good support to everyone else, and your presence here today is much appreciated. 🙂 🙂 The swan and fox is a fabulous image and I love the one on the school too. Sometimes the blog is a welcome distraction. Sometimes it’s not. You choose! Sending hugs 🙂

  6. Oh I did so love these Ann-Christine. A perfect idea for a much needed bright spot for you. The swan and fox is amazing but they are really all wonderful. I also loved your final image as fall kissed your windshield – what a love end to the day.

  7. These graffitti and murals are colorful, uplifting, and inspiring. All are so beautifully captured.
    Many thanks, Ann Christine for this special post. (((hugs))) ❤
