Today’s Lens Artist challenge is from Patti, and it’s challenging indeed. It focuses on the old poem often used for a bride’s wedding gear:
I couldn’t find a single photo that embodied all four of these concepts, so I have to offer four separate ones.
Something old: This is the Eye of the Needle, out of Sackets Harbor, NY. It’s not really as old as it looks, but it is based on the design and look of an old sailing vessel. They took her out this past weekend on Black River Bay.
Something new: Today we had the first fresh corn of the season, bought from a farm that’s about a quarter mile from our house. Delicious!
Something borrowed: This was the hardest part of the challenge for me. I didn’t have anything borrowed from anyone else, or any good opportunities to borrow something for a photo. I fell back on this, an image I took over two years ago. It is a pair of my earrings, removed from their wires and hooked into a ring. My daughter borrowed these and carried them, attached to her bouquet, at her wedding. The original for something borrowed!
Something blue: A neighbor child left this bike on the edge of his lawn, just in time for me to snap a picture today. It has a bright blue frame and Spider-Man adornments.
I’m glad I didn’t give up on this challenge! It was fun to figure out how to accomplish the task before the week ended. Thank you, Patti!
