Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #158 – Along Back Country Roads

This week, Beth leads LAPC weekly theme: Along Back Country Roads.

I would like to take you to Texas Country roads to visit Texas Longhorn, cattles, horses, and wildflowers

The Texas Longhorn is a breed of cattle known for its characteristic horns, which can extend to over 100 inches (2.54 m) tip to tip for cows and bulls.

Driving through some of the long narrow country roads in Texas, you may get to see horses. For taking a few photos of these horses, I have to park my car right on the road pretty risky and walk up to the ranch through layers of bushes and be very careful about those electrical wires around there. Pretty risky… After making all that effort, if I’m lucky, I can see a few horses.

Somehow, the masion on top of the hill reminds me the old time “Dallas” TV series:


Between March and April, you can enjoy Texas wildflowers through the back country roads. I probably will never find this site again, but I remember it was a long, bumpy, and unpaved road. Hubby was driving, and we had no idea where we were.

Often, you see bird happily flying up there. 🙂

Beth (wanderingdawgs.com) invistes us to join the Back Country Roa rod theme, “It can be a road where you walk, go for a bike ride, take a scenic drive, go off-roading in a jeep or four wheeler, or a road you take to get somewhere.” Click here to enjoy her beautiful photos of “Along Back Country Roads” and her travel stories.

Next week on July 31, Ana (Anvica’s Gallery) will lead LAPC challenge – “Postcards.” Be sure to visit her site.

Photographing Public Art Challenge #6

Faster, Higher, Stronger – Together

–The newly adapted Olympic slogan

These photos were captured when we were visiting the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in 2018.

There were several beautiful sculptures in this building.

The display below was made by hands with wheats, grass, tree branches/leaves, wood slides, bamboo, and seeds… symbolizing an abundance resources and good wishes for prosperity. Our tour guide also explained that it was a very special gift to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building from the Meiji Jingu Shrine.

The Olympic logo was already displayed in the building then:
