Foto Friday: Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #143 – Colorful April

By chance I came across this website and photo challenge: It’s an “old” challenge in that another challenge has already been made, but I consider the find serendipitous nonetheless. Here is my colorful April:

On a recent visit to Timberlane Ravine park, we found evidence of a whimsical and delightful imagination a few yards in from the trailhead.

Whoever left these figurines had to have known the delight they would be giving to park visitors. And they left the best message for those exiting the park.

Indeed, Love.

I hope you enjoyed these figurines in a park setting as much as we did.

Stay safe and well. Hope is out there. You just have to keep your eyes open and look for it.

    1. Amy, thank you for visiting and commenting! The angles were difficult since there wasn’t a safe (i.e., soft) place to kneel so I really appreciate that you love them ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Thank you, Jill! Yes, I think I “turned the corner” this week. I’m definitely enjoying the little joys such as the figurines or my plants that are just starting to bloom or watching Raji sleep ๐Ÿ˜‰


  1. Greetings Marie – glad you found us! Our challenge posts every Saturday but we’re always happy to welcome responses to previous posts. Loved your little figurines, what fun it must have been to come across them! Hope you’ll join us again in the future.

    1. Thank you, Tina! I don’t often participate in challenges, but I’m more interested since taking up iPhone photography. I do enjoy sharing my photos so thank you very much for visiting and commenting!


  2. The rabbit figurines are delightful. I love it when people do some small thing like that in the park, hurting nothing, adding some whimsy. It does give me a sense of hope, which I could use right about now. We’ve been living such a weird life this last year, I’m ready for some changes for the better.

    1. Perfectly stated, Ally. My husband and I tend to list toward cynicism, especially with all the horrible events around us. So when we happened upon these figures, we got a good positive jolt of hope ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Okay, you’ve mentioned geocaching. So now a couple of the figurines are gone, and a friend suggested that they might be meant for geocaching. I do like that idea, and it explains why the figurines were put there to begin with ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. How charming and delightful! Wow, I wonder if the person will check it out later. I hope nobody steals any of the figures, cynic that I am! Thanks for this, Marie! xo

    1. Well, we did go back to the trail and a couple of the figurines are now missing. A friend of mine suggested that it might be part of geocaching because all the other figurines were in place. I think if someone intended some maliciousness they would all have been taken or broken. I like the idea that people are using the figurines for geocaching ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. Not really. I know my nephew’s wife in South Carolina has gone geocaching with their kids but I don’t know anyone around me who has done it. I *think* it’s generally a way to get kids outside. I’m just happy to be outside, without having something to search for ๐Ÿ˜‰
