Lens artists photo challenge #22

How to illustrate happy? Well I did a post entitled Happy only the other day, so I decided not to post that image again!

We all have our own happy, but for me I would say friendship, good conversation, good food, good wine, strong black coffee, travel- finding new places to explore, art, old things ….etc!

So here are a few images to illustrate some of those


Finding new places to explore:


Some wines I have drunk

Wine, and a garden rose

Black coffee and a simple breakfast:

Old things….I love old ruins, but other old things have their appeal!

  1. Looks like you – Sue! The breakfast shot is really appealing, and my mother used to have a Singer machine!

  2. A very nice selection, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Your sewing machine photo makes me happy.

  4. Jackie

    We like the same things!! Lovely photos, especially the sewing machine.

  5. Amazing how many of us are made happy by the same things Sue! Lovely thoughts for the week!

  6. I can only agree with Tina. Lovely shots and sentiments.

  7. Was that wine consumed in one sitting???? I like your interpretation of happy in all its dimensions

  8. That shot of Matera is a standout, Sue! That would make me very happy. 🙂 🙂 I did wonder about the wine, too….

  9. I’ll join you in all thes happy things Sue

  10. I’m less and less interested in alcohol these days, but I’d love to join those guys for a few minutes chat 🙂

  11. Your “happy” shots are all lovely, particularly the one of beautiful Matera. Interesting that it is the simple things that make us happy 🙂

  12. Ohh. I love that shot of Matera. Gorgeous!

  13. Amy

    Love this series, Sue. 🙂
