Running Swans

I’m fairly certain I took this photo in 2020 and I’ve held off on sharing it since, in part due to wanting to submit it to competitions and in part waiting for the “right” time. Not submitted it to anything (yet) and the right time is always now.

This was taken at Sydney Olympic Park at the brick pit. It’s not a great photo it makes me think about our need to think more about how we impact the environment, and how we need to do more to take better care of it where we can.

This is my submission into the two hundred-and-thirty-fourth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. The theme for this one is “Messages“.

The host of the Lens-Artists challenges cycles weekly between the following people:

Week 1 – Tina

Week 2 – Patti

Week 3 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 4 – Amy

Week 5 – John Steiner

Week 6 – Sofia Alves

Week 7 – Anne Sandler

Week 8 – Guest host

Donna of Wind Kisses, who has joined the Lens-artists team this year is curating this one. Next week Patti is curating and the theme has been announced in advance. Next one’s theme is “Shadows & Reflections in Monochrome”.

I recommend participating in the challenges. They’re open enough to allow for a fair bit of thinking about approach and closed enough to keep focus on meeting the theme of each one. If you don’t participate, you should still check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.
