  1. Hi Jane, I really love the Blue Eggs photo. It’s gorgeous. Louise

  2. Hi Jane! I love the way you framed Under the Transit Bay with all the intersecting lines and curves. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  3. Wow!
    What a work!
    I love them! Beautiful photos, with great detail and colors!
    Congrats!

  4. Love your eye for “seeing”, Succulent Wall is my fav, WOW!

  5. Fantastic, Jane! Building Patterns II is gorgeous….Love the first two…The museum people posed for you! Love Umbrella Underbelly especially – that one is brilliant, you saw it (because you’re awake!!) and you composed the photo so well. We’re going to LA in October; would like your input. Not our first trip. We’ll see the Getty – haven’t been there – and possibly a day trip to the Channel Islands. And/or maybe the other direction, a place called Bluff Lake up by Big Bear Lake (San Bernardino Mts). Just throwing ideas around now. Canter’s Deli, need to go there too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Hihih, visualise being towed! ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. A truly entertaining series of photographs, Jane. I especially like the Museum People and Contemplating “The Son of Man,” really refreshing looks at our species. Also liked the baskets of cherry tomatoes, beautiful in itself, then reading the title and receiving the gift of the white tomato. Enjoyed the art and whimsy here.

  8. The strawberries and blueberries, seems time for a shortcake moment. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I enjoy seeing the world from your perspective.

  10. Delightful selection of colors and patterns. Your โ€œcontemplating the โ€œson of manโ€โ€ cracked me up! Brilliant catch! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. A happy post… enjoyed the vivid colors!

  12. Stunning, elegance, there are no words for your talent:)

  13. Quite a few clever wordplays by you. Visualize being towed away ๐Ÿ™‚ Such a bespoke intellectual touch to normal boring warning. It might give a photographer or artist nightmares!

  14. You are a truly talented photographer!

  15. fantastic lines and colours, Jane. Have a great day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. So fun I particularly liked visualizing being towed. Ha, ha.

  17. You make the most common thing stand out. That museum scene speaks so much of our modern culture :(. A thoughtful collection!

  18. an artful look fills a need for learning, living, and loving
    great collection of captures Jane

  19. Great colors and patterns. I like the guy at the museum looking at the Son of Man. The other museum photo is a little sad – 4 people on their phones when they could be talking to each other about art of something. It is still a nice photo though, another pattern and color.

    • Thanks very much, Jeff. I love the everyday scenes especially in museums. I agree, it’s a bit sad that heads are in phones when there is so much to see in front of them. I was happy, however, that they spaced themselves out so nicely. ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. A very nice, and creative, selection. I really need to look through someone elseโ€™s viewfinder more often.

  21. Love the patterns you notice. There is so much to find if we only look. My favourite (if I have to have one) is Contemplating โ€œThe Son of Manโ€ – what a great image! Once again your photography makes me happy.

  22. As always, it is there for all to see and ‘shoot’ …but you got the knack to get it “just right, and special”

  23. Such a great eye Jane, you make us see things we would otherwise pass by.

  24. simply amazing and beautiful…

  25. I particularly love the shots looking straight up, Jane! Wonderful lines and angles. And, I planted a bowl full of succulents yesterday and now I can envision what my photo will look like.

  26. Some really fun shots here Jane – and a new entry in your collection of signs ๐Ÿ˜Š. Especially liked the blue eggs. One wonders ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

  27. This is an awesome collection… so totally different, but still collections and then in the middle the do-dos totally ignoring it all on their phones! Love them!

  28. Jane, this is such beautiful composition, thank you so much for sharing.

  29. What an outstanding selection of images. Jane. Beautiful colors, patterns, and lines on display in this group.. “Contemplating” is an especially delightful (even whimsical) image. Nice work!

  30. I love this collection. Each one had me engaged.
    Alison

  31. Hi Jane once again great and different photos you show us, my favorite is this with the white tomato.
    Greetings robert

  32. Love the touches of humor amidst the more serious shots. Your eye sees all!

  33. I love the way you see geometry (and math) in the everyday! Stunning photography, Jane!

  34. Reblogging your priceless “envision” with credit to sister site “Timeless Wisdoms”

  35. You’ve got an excellent assortment of colors and shapes here.

    Given that Magritte was born in 1898, I’m accustomed to thinking of his work as belonging to the Dadaist school and the early Surrealists. To my surprise, I found out that “The Son of Man” dates from 1964, just three years before Magritte’s death. Here’s more about that painting:

  36. Such creativity!! I love them all! Really like the clarity!!

  37. Red, White and Blueberryโ€”well done, Jane. The message on the garage door is a scream and the succulent wall is my favoriteโ€”the color and detail is spot on and the lighting is superb. Happy Labor Day weekend.

  38. I love the subjects Jane, such beautiful photography! โค๏ธ
