Lens-Artists Challenge #129 – Favorite Images of 2020

Once again, I’d like to say thanks to Patti, Ann-Christine, Amy, and Tina for another great year of challenges.  Lens-Artists is one of the highlights of my blogging activities and right now is one of the things keeping me from dropping this blog entirely haha.

2020 started off so promisingly, with a trip to Disney World with my family at the end of February. In retrospect, we were lucky to have made it there, because only a few weeks after this was taken, everything shut down, including Disney. I shared this photo for last month’s Precious Moments challenge.

During the shutdown, we mostly stayed home for the spring and summer, which meant that I was photographing a lot of the flowers around our house. This hydrangea photo was my most-liked post last year, for the Creativity in the Time of Covid challenge.

The end of 2020 has brought some changes with the arrival of my second kid and a move to a new house. This has actually been the toughest part of the year for me, adjusting to all these changes. And the weather here in Ohio is matching my mood! But it’s good to remind myself that sometimes a new perspective can yield a beautiful view, even in the cold and snow. Here’s the view from under the dogwood tree at my new house in December, a new photo for this post.

It’s definitely been a crazy year full of ups and downs–a memorable year for sure. Here’s to good photos and good memories in 2021!

You can find everyone else’s favorite photos of the year at the original Lens-Artist challenge.

    Wonderful response Mei-Mei. I love how you slipped in “a new kid” and “a new house” just in passing! You had a memorable year indeed 🙂 Wishing you a new year filled with lots of memorable moments as well as health and happiness – and thank you for the lovely comment about our challenge – it keeps us going too!

    Wonderful trio. I can see why the hydrangeas were so liked; I would have liked it myself if I’d seen it in the other place. The snow on dogwoods is equally lovely.

    Congratulations, Mei Mei on the new baby and the new house! I am so glad you are enjoying the challenges. We’re happy you’ve been such a faithful follower! I love that view of the dogwood, too.
