Lens-Artists Photo Challenge 148 Spots and Dots

This week the challenge takes me into my abstract/design library of images. Leya asks us to, “recognize and enjoy the different interpretations, meanings and importance of these two little words. Spots and Dots. Because even if they are small…they can make a big difference.”

As a photographer I am always looking for repetition. Here are some dots I spotted.

Can you guess what these are?

This is a swingin’ Hot spot, maybe?

Now spots can be thought of as a favorite spot. This coming week I am going on my first trip since CoVid. It is our 50 + 1 anniversary. Last year, well you know, there was not much of a celebration, and it was supposed to be our BIG one. Pacific Grove has been our “spot” for over twenty years. This year will be a bit different. It is also our first vacation with a dog. Charlie is in for an adventure.

Here is my boy Charlie at 15 months

In preparation, I have been taking him out with me to stores, and parks. Yesterday, my grandson Lucas played tee ball. I brought Charlie to the game. He was a bit overstimulated at first. I remained, and after a while he started to relax. I gave out treats to those watching the game to give to Charlie. And he took advantage. The day before in Lowe’s he wouldn’t take a treat. Slow progress.

These are some of the images I grabbed during our last time in Pacific Grove in 2019.

On our way to Pacific Grove we stop and get some Bing Cherries
Lover’s Point
Monterey Bay
Asilomar State Beach

Seafood is on the menu! But we will see how well Charlie deals with all the excitement.

These are natural occuring spots.

Sometimes, as a photographer you are just in the right spot at the right time!

That is all for this photo challenge. Need to get ready to go on a short vacation. Do I even remember how to pack?

  1. Marlene – first I wish you a very pleasant trip! And thank you for beautiful and relaxing spots and dots. Love the variety – and of course the star is Charlie. I have always wanted to catch a lightning on photo, but I am scared of lightning because of a traumatic experience as a child. So I am happy to enjoy your great shot!
    And for the guess – I think I recognize similar wheels from when my son was an avid skater (still is, but not living at home anymore…)
