Lens-Artists PC: Blending out or standing in?

Today five examples of standing out – or is it blending in? – in images by three. Because Leya asked for it

First, this door from Piran looks stonewashed. It wasn’t me. Maybe it was the snail army to help conceal their spy.

Second example is just cats. I love it how they always act as if I interrupted their world peace-keeping conference. Sorry, cats, carry on. Blending out or standing in? You decide.

The third example is quite outstanding, there in the greens of Ljubljana jungle, hidden away in the botanical garden.

The fourth set is from this Saturday. The butterfly is borderline blending in already, with the white spots to make it look like the bark of the tree, and yet its colours would give it away anywhere but here. Niki de Saint Phalle’s Tarot Garden had its open door day again.

The last trio of photos is from Sunday, taken from my front door. Some serious bird activity going on.

As you go through life, never forget: If you’re the only one, it may just mean that you are the first.

For Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, hosted by Leya of To See A World in a Grain of Sand…: Blending In – or Standing Out?

  1. I loved the color of that door and a modest snail feeling quite at home. Your cat ideas made me smile – you are so right, cats always look like they own the space, and you are just interrupting :))
    And the birds are like note signs on the note paper. I love their sense of order and balance 🙂

    1. Thank you, Judith. It’s also due to laziness. If I do a post, I might as well show and tell a bit more, who knows when I’ll do the next one. But they do kind of answer to the prompt together like this, no?

    1. Hehe, Jolene, thank you for asking. I’m for mixing it all up kind of girl. 😉 But actually I’ve just discovered recently that I take photos in the same way I translate (which is my job): I remove myself and let the others speak through me.


  2. I love how your mind works…here too. Lovely shots, love the snail door and the starlings on a row. I find the white cat just uses his/her body to blend in with the little roof shape where the cat is sitting…Arching.
    And blending out is an excellent way to explain things…while standing in goes very much for the Heliconia jungle, doesn’t it…Thank you for an as usual versatile entry!

    1. Thank you, Leya, I’m glad you enjoyed my post. 🙂 And I’m especially grateful to you for providing a couple of info that I was not sure about: the starlings and the Heliconia!


  3. “If you are the only one, you may just be the first.” Lovely sentiment. The sunlight in the garden, the feline peace negotiations, it’s all wonderful. I couldn’t decide if anyone was blending in or standing out because I was too delighted by the pictures. Hee hee
