Lens-Artist, Tina invites us to review photos in 2022 to come up with some that have not fit any Lens-Artist challenge. It’s hard to believe we’ve come to that time of year already.
“Last Chance is basically LAST CHANCE.”Graham Thorpe
Our little can friend is banging his head against the wall. He’s had his last chance.
In January we took a trip to Wickenburg, Arizona. What an amazing historic town. It was like walking into the old west. The heart of the town is the Smithsonian Cowboy Museum. I wish I could tell you what this little guy is, but I lost my last chance to write down the answer – at least for this year. So you will just have to guess and never know if you are right or wrong. How frustrating is that?
“Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.”H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Last March, we visited our son and his girlfriend in Sacramento. They took us on several outings, and one of their favorites was Nevada City. They plan to be married there this fall so this was our last chance to see it before they made the decision. The town has an Old West feel even though they were working on the streets with heavy equipment that was definitely from the twenty-first century.
I took this photo with my iPhone. When I saw it in Adobe Bridge, the small version of it looked like a painting, but it wasn’t the same when I opened it. I wanted to capture the painting look that I saw when I first looked at it. So, I tried several experiments with it. First, in Photoshop, which is still a mystery to me, I posterized it. Then in Canva, I added a Cali filter and my name.

In June, Vince and I celebrated our 27th anniversary in Cottonwood, Arizona. We took the chance on getting married and our lives started down that wonderful pathway of major changes. In 2020, we moved to Arizona, where we enjoy exploring so many new places. We found an adorable restaurant there for our lunch, then walked around the town taking pictures.
This little engine that could – could not! He had had his last chance to travel the railways!
