Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #102: A Quiet Moment

This week, Patti invites us to capture “A Quiet Moment.

In the quiet moments, the discoveries are made.

These days, I spend some quiet moments in our backyard, especially in the early morning. The other day, I happily discovered a few buds of the tomato plant.


Forget things and have a quiet moment.

Watching the these plants to grow day after day, I often forget this troubling time.

“Live quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you. The future will take care of itself……”

― Yogananda

Tomatoes are long-growing, heat-seeking, sun lovers. We had some rain in April and May, and have had lots of sun in June. We hope to harvest tomatoes in the fall.

I take time to appreciate the beauty and details of these flowers and enjoy the quiet moment.

“During these past few months while the pandemic has raged around the world, many of us have rediscovered the value (and necessity) of finding quiet moments during the day to reflect and recharge.” Take a look of Patti’s special quiet moments in various beautiful cities.

We hope you join us this week. Include a link of Patti’s post and use the“Lens-Artists” tag so we can find your post in the WP Reader.

Stay tuned for Ann-Christine’s LAPC #103 on June 27.

  1. Gorgeous shots in your garden, Amy! I can imagine you enjoying your time there with your camera. The macro shots are great. My favorite is the last one. Beautiful light and luminosity. I hope you can find some moments to relax and recharge, too, in the upcoming days and weeks. Take care.

  2. I love your macros, Amy, but I did get a laugh out of your description of tomatoes as ” heat-seeking, sun lovers”, not that it isn’t accurate, but here where we have both heat and sun, I have to struggle to keep mine alive and not have them crisp on the vine before any tomatoes actually appear. From what I read AFTER I bought tomatoes and other goodies from Lowe’s, ‘twould be better to have planted them in the fall. But what did I, moving from a lifetime in the Midwest, know and why on earth do they have all those plants available if they really should be planted later? The peas I bought fried in a few days, but I’ll try again later and our landlady assures me that I’ll have peas for months then.

    • Thank you for your comment, Janet. I have visited AZ a few time. I remember how hot it can be in summer. Fall would be a good time. They do need some moisture and good soil, I think.

  3. Excellent photos, Amy. Surprisingly, you are the 2nd person this challenge I’ve seen using the Yogananda quote. An inspiring book when I read it in the early ’70s (Autobiography of a Yogi). Cosmic!!
