Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #75 – Nostalgic

It’s time for Lens-Artists photo challenge. This week’s challenge is “Nostalgic” by Tina Schell.

We’re living in a modern world. Time rushes by and instead of creating things that remain, our stuff is made for quick obsolescence. Electronic gear without an option to repair or even replace a weak battery. Instead of writing on paper, we’re writing on computers and save our work in changing media formats. A few decades ago, there were changing clothes 2 times a year: summer and winter. In some regions special clothes for spring and fall were necessary. Nowadays it feels like fashion changes every month. This results in enormous hills of waste and increased usage of resources. The companies try to make more and more money regardless of the resources and the needs of the people.

Because of this, more and more people try to get off of this rush. Small villages in the countryside and special houses offer treatments to slow your life down to bring you mentally back to the ground.

Take care!

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #71 – Creepy

This week it’s Leya‘s turn to challenge us. She asks for something creepy, and she gets something really creepy πŸ™‚

The Pterophoridae or plume moths are a family of Lepidoptera with unusually modified wings. Though they belong to the Apoditrysia like the larger moths and the butterflies, unlike these they are tiny and were formerly included among the assemblage called “microlepidoptera”. – Wikipedia

I stumbled upon this creepy insect a few years ago and already wrote about it. Here you can see another image taken from a different point of view.

A plume moth is a kind of moth, a many-plumed moth. I never saw one before, so it was a very scary moment. The moth is about 2-3 cm long and the spread wings approximately 4-5 cm.

It is pale-white and the legs have thorns. Considering that moths are usually not very pretty, this one looks like it has escaped from a nightmare.

Take care!

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #70: Monochrome

Another week of the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, this time organized by Patti. The theme this week is monochrome. You know, I do a lot of monochrome images. But, not only black and white or greyscale is monochrome. It’s also when only one color is dominating the image.

To distinguish this image from my usual monochrome images, I picked this one from my archive. It’s taken a few years ago on Corfu. When using the tag “corfu” you can find many more impressions from that wonderful greek island.

Take care!
