Object // Cheeky Art {Photo Challenge}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // blue and green decorative glass art piece found in Hearst Castle

While visiting Hearst Castle last year, I was captivated by all the beauty every where we turned. Of course all the amazing architecture and art were beautiful objects to desire, but even in the gift shop, the object of my attention turned to the colors of this decorative and colorful glass art piece. As I came in for a closer, angled shot, I realized I was getting quite a cheeky bum in the background from another sculptural art piece, which of course made me laugh! Yes, I totally regressed to my 7- and 4-year olds’ humor : )

10 on 10 – January // Doors of Balboa Park

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // doors of Balboa Park, Spanish Village, International Cottages, Junior TheaterMy dear friend and amazing photographer, Kim Bajorek, invited me to join her with a few other photographers in a 10 on 10 monthly blog posting circle, showcasing 10 (or more!) photos taken on the 10th of the month, and linking to the next photographer in the circle. This month, I’m linking to the fabulous Micah Hewett Images – definitely check it out!

Seeing that the 10th of January landed on a Friday, I had a chance to sneak away as both my girls were in school! I chose to head to Balboa Park and photograph the beautiful and different doors of the park. Spanish Village for the colorful doors, International Cottages for some more color and iron, Junior Theater for wood and iron and Sculpture Court Cafe for beautiful iron. I really love being at the park – there is always something to see, something to photograph, something I hadn’t noticed before.

I had no idea there were so many caterpillars on some of the different trees around the park! I really wished I had a macro lens to get closer and better details as I grabbed these shots. Without a doubt, I was fascinated with these ravenous leaf-eaters and colorful creatures!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day! Don’t forget to check out the next photographer in the 10 on 10 circle – Micah Hewett Images  – lovely images and I hope her little man is all better now!

Eerie // Louvre Art {Photo Challenge}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // eerie photos from the Louvre, Richelieu wing, St. Valerie holding her head

When I read The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Eerie, I immediately thought of all the ghouls and creepy things that came with Halloween. But then I remembered a couple of shots I took on my last day in Paris, inside the Louvre. I loved these images, but never really knew what I was going to do with them. Thank heavens for prompts making me think outside the box!

We had just a couple of hours at the Louvre before we had to head to the train station to continue our adventure in the South of France. My girlfriends and I decided to go our own ways in the Louvre as we all wanted to see different things. On my way about, I got a bit twisted around, but luckily found these sculptures that caught my attention in the Richelieu wing.

Have you photographed anything eerie lately? Be sure to play along with the Daily Post!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!

Arch // St. Paul Medieval Village {Photo Challenge}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // sculpture in Saint Paul-de-Vence, Provence, FranceSt. Paul is a lovely little medieval village in Provence, France. It’s rather quaint and filled with lovely art in all forms! I was completely drawn to this relaxing sculpture. I bet he’s enjoying spending the rest of his life hanging around such a wonderful little village!

Along with the art, the architecture is lovely with arches everywhere you turn…
