Lens-Artists Challenge #153: It’s a Wonderful World

This week, Lens-Artist, Amy brings to us LAPC #153 “It’s a wonderful world” from Louis Armstrong ‘s song, “What A Wonderful World.” This post also works for Cee’s FOTD Challenge

My Wonderful Life

I see trees of green
Red roses too
I see them bloom
For me and you…
I see skies of blue
And clouds of white
The bright blessed day
The dark sacred night…
The colors of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces
Of people going by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, “How do you do?”
They’re really saying
“I love you”
Yes, I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Coming Up

Happy weekend. Have a wonderful week.

    • Isn’t she sweet? I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her. She was at the car show, and her mom knew our friend who had her car on display. She was shy until I had her move to the car and take her picture. Then poof – she bloomed. I only took one shot, and it turned out exactly as you see it. 🙂

  1. Always happy to see your name pop up in our challenges Marsha. Loved your response on this one, it really IS a wonderful world, isn’t it? Loved your bizarre closing image – it made me look twice and then gave me a big smile!

    • Yes, Photographing Public Art. A brainstorm I had after reading one of PhotosbyJohn’s post when I interviewed him. I mulled it over quite a bit, chatted with Cee about it, and she volunteered to co-host it with me. So she’s doing PPAC #2 this Friday. Once I talked to her, she lit a fire under me and voila, it happened. I might have procrastinated for years.


      • well that little story reminds me of why partnering with someone can be good for a few reasons – like it can prevent the procrastination – but it also shared the workload – that is a plus – and then ! gives someone else the chance to co-lead – and not that Cee “needed” that because she has been hosting for so long (and has given away challenges over the years) but you know what I mean – it can just be good…

        and already I have seen a couple posts linked to the theme – just got back from Lisa (@dailymusings) and this challenge sounds like it will be a celebration of so many different types of art – and also will be a nice fit into the mix of challenges you already do – because you did not read have anything like this in your line up.
        best wishes and I look forward o following along – even if it is an observer – bu we will see how it flows and rolls

  2. HA!!! 😂 I loved scrolling through the quality photos interspersed with the song, and the great old old Porsche, but the LAST one was hilarious! Totally incongruous. Perfect!

    • Thanks, again, Terri. We must be very good friends – three links in one post! LOL. I missed you last week. I hope my camera works this week. I hope your storage building gets done quickly. I know you can’t wait to settle down. 🙂

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
