Lens Artists Photo Challenge #123: Found in the Neighbourhood

Ann Christine says “We are all trapped in our Covid19 bubbles – and at least here in Europe we are facing tough restrictions again. This gives us a chance to rediscover our surroundings –”

So I am going to take you on a little wander around my neighbourhood and places near to my neighbourhood that I have been to during lockdown

Firstly, in our first lockdown back in March, I looked very close to home, creating Still life images entitled ‘A cup of Coffee and a Book’…here are a few

Later, a friend persuaded me that I really must get out, and he showed me where to go locally where I could be sure to be able to Socially Distance and enjoy the fresh air

Here are some images of my neighbourhood, taken during these COVID times

Linked to Lens artists at Anne Christine’s here


  1. Great with both indoor creativity and outdoors luxury for neighbourhood Sue! Beautiful light and I so admire your ‘A cup of Coffee and a Book’ series. Excellent.

  2. Excellent. Great nature scenes in the second gallery. Abandoned Planet by Andre Govia looks positively dystopian or worse. Build it, abandon it. No problem. Not toooo prescient, I hope.

  3. I miss your cup of coffee and a book series. I am convinced you have many more books, and plenty of coffee!
    Best wishes, Pete.

      Well, yes, but it’s a case of trying to create different images, and I feel I might become repetitive…..but I might consider creating some more

  4. Your landscapes are truly beautiful Sue, but I really loved your still lifes especially. Several of them would make gorgeous paintings.

  5. If it hadn’t been for Covid, Sue, you might never have discovered what a nice neighbourhood you have. But I’m sure you’d rather have been without the necessity. 🙂 🙂 Loved your coffee and a book series. Time for another theme?

  6. Glad you found ways to keep occupied and a great place to find to relax and share your photos 😀😀

  7. I really enjoyed the coffee cup and a book theme that you did. But it is nice that you did eventually get outside and enjoy exploring your lovely neighbourhood. Maybe a new indoor still life theme for the wet days of winter?

  8. Beautiful still images and the perfect light & Shadows…so well you have brought out.
    And those neighbourhood Nature Images….so mesmerizing, a visual treat
    Thank you Sue

  9. Lowlight through windows is such a gift for photographers – a beautiful selection.

  10. I so loved your A cup of Coffee and a Book. Your photos were stunning. We just don’t have that many books. I’m not a reader, Chris is a reader and her books are all on kindle. 😀 Beautiful post Cee.

    • Sue

      I have always had books, and though I no longer have loads I still have a good few that are essentially part of my history……and very important to me Pleased you enjoyed my series, Cee!

  11. I really enjoyed your coffee and book series too Sue.
    Lockdowns have been great for neighbourhood exploration. I found an exquisite area of native bush about 5 minutes walk away I knew nothing about; I’ve lived here for 20 years 😬

  12. You have beautiful places to safely meander, Sue. Lovely set of photos both indoors and outdoors.

  13. Lovely neighborhood indoors and out.


  14. Ana

    I love your still life images!!! 🙂

  15. what a wonderful post – love this. Hoping you find some new inspiration for December

  16. I think I have pondered nearly all of these images and responded to some of them in the comment section. I really enjoy your eye and the images it captures for me to enjoy too.

  17. I like the artistic perspective of the books and a cuppa. Getting outside no matter how long is definitely worth the reward of the beauty you’ll see. Thank you for this!

  18. I really love your coffee + book series. That light is so precious. There are places that would gladly display it somewhere.
