Lens Artists Weekly Challenge #200 is ‘Every little thing’. Lots of small things, but flowers, and how they open up meeting the sun, are all around. Here the first part of an Alium flower courageously opens up.
Lens artists photo challenge #199 is ‘mechanical/industrial’. Cows are fed at the stable. My first entry to cell pic Sunday.
Spring is putting the leaves back on the trees, always a wonderful moment of the year, seeing everything blossom and grow.

The Lens-artists challenge #197 is ‘rule of thirds’. The rule of thirds is a rule of thumb how to compose images. But a photo that creates a journey of the eye can also be made by using lines and colors. Even when the horizon is not on 1/3.
The Netherlands, Voorhout – April 2022
After two years of pandemic, the flower parade was finally back!
The Lens-artists challenge #196 is ‘humor‘. Some early youngsters walking the footpath, hitting some rain water, being out of their depth.
Each year the growers of bulbs try to keep the public out of the fields. If people enter the fields there is an imminent risk of diseases to the bulbs. It is impossible to patrol all fields so soft tactics with signs are being used. And some growers have volunteers to address people who do enter their fields. But in the end it all is depending on the behavior and goodwill of people. Unfortunately some think a field is public space. The other day I heard an anecdote about this ‘freedom confusion’. One day a grower saw a family enter his field, passing by at that moment. He noticed that the car of the man was left open. So he sat in the car. The man ran from the field to his car asking ‘what are you doing? this is my car!’. The grower just replied: ‘and that is my field you entered’.
