Really Good Things

1. I enjoyed having time this week to sort through my 'wetlands' photographs from a couple of weeks ago and create some collages like the one above to share.

2. I'm relieved to know there's nothing wrong with my new Tamron lens after all!

3. Giving and receiving feedback in Thursday evening's writers workshop is a blessing.

4. The flowers in my yard are lovely and the weather this past week exceptionally pleasant!

5. We celebrated my sister's birthday last night after the Nikon camera class at Ritz ... sharing a salad and a pizookie at BJs as we did for MY birthday last month.

Thought for Today
"If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive." Eleonora Duse

Great collage of great photos! I especially enjoy the middle left picture with the reflections and the size and color disparity of the two subjects. What's going on in that picture anyway? An awkward game of follow the leader?

Linnea said...

I agree with Bryan above. I love these shots, especially the middle left one....so cute. What a variety of scenes you captured. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week...

Baruch said...

A beautiful collage and some great words of wisdom

Hello, Virginia,

Happy belated birthday to your sister. What is a pizookie? Pizza cookie?

The bird photos are so lovely.

Thanks for sharing. <3

Stunning collage! I too am fascinated with the middle left image! Interesting to see a small leader!

Beautiful thoughts on gratitude, Storyteller. I am learning to relax and do more as I do less on the weekends. Such a blessing!
