I came across this lovely challenge thanks to another blogger, as often happens!

This blog is called Lens and Pens by Sally. Here let me let her give you the instructions:

Lake Garda

Lake Garda

I usually use my Oympus to take photographs, but sometimes it’s just handier to pull our my cel phone, a Nokia 202, which is not the newest of the Nokia line, but it has the advantage of still having a proper key pad along with touch screen!

Tourist in my Town

A while back, on November 5th in fact, Canadian Travel Bugs came up with a great prompt for her Tourist in my Town in fact this month she’s looking for statues!  “If anyone wants to join visit the above link to the orginal post and in the comment section put a link to your post so we can find lots of cool sculpture in just a click away.
Stay tuned the first weekend of each month there will be a new theme.”

Well my village doesn’t really have a lot of statues, so I showed showed her some from Riva del Garda, Arco and Rovereto.  But Bolognano does have one statue…it’s weird and is the property of our local credit union bank…so I took some pictures walking all around it!  I’m afraid I don’t really know what it represents, as it doesn’t have a plaque or anything, however it was interesting to photograph from all sides.

Have a great evening…I’ll see you tomorrow!  Ciao!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Layers (2)

Hello again!  For the Weekly Challenge (layers), yesterday, I showed you layers of clouds…and told you I’d try to figure out something else for today!

So, now let’s look at layers of leaves!  Grape leaves mostly, because I live in a grape growing community.

I’ve got several of this next picture, basically because I’m in love with this old abandoned house!
