Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: SOFT

“The Earth is Art. The photographer is only a witness.”

Yann Arthus-Bertrand

SET OF SOFT SHEEP

Although is can sometimes be used as a derogatory adjective, implying weakness or limited intelligence, for the most part the word SOFT conjures up a warm, happy feeling. Soft-hearted, soft-touch, soft-spoken – you get the idea.  This week as I think back on our visit to rural New York state, I remember the softness of many of the farm animals, especially the two little sheep above.

“A soft heart is a strong heart, and a hard heart is a weak heart.”

Criss Jamie

Of course, there are all kinds of soft creatures around the world. One example – the long-haired Highland Cow above. He was one of my favorite finds on our visit to Scotland several years ago. I wondered how on earth he was able to see anything at all through those soft bangs.

ALPACA ON ALERT

“Just because you are soft doesn’t mean you are not a force.

Victoria Erickson

In Patagonia we were entertained by a small herd of alpaca grazing in the hills. Their fleece provides some of the warmest, softest, most luxurious fabric in the world.

 

This week show us your interpretation of SOFT. Is it something as simple as a puppy’s fur, or as personal as your favorite quilt or sweater? Maybe it’s the soft light of dawn or the whisper of a soft breeze through the trees. Let us know in your response what SOFT means to you.

Remember to add the Lens-Artists tag to your post, and to link to this one. Be sure to tune in for Patti’s challenge next week on Pilotfish
