Joy Spots ~ August Break

time to reflect over tea
on crow's redundant TV aerial perch
refreshing rain for the garden
 miracle of macro
a bit of pink fluff
oh, and a pair of big strong boots to rely on,
my love's of course!

The teapot is divine -- I love dots. And the TV aerial was a blast from the past. I rarely see them anymore.
Oh what a learning experience. Your photos are amazing. I rarely see the clothes lines anymore due to restrictions in some neighborhoods. My thumbnail did not come up when I signed in but I have had that happen before. Blessings

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture.
