Vermilion, according to Wikipedia, is an orange-red color. So here is my vermilion Gerbera daisy with a double bloom.
Here are some photos of some of my weekends of the past:
I have several flower photos that have what I call “usual” visitors – those insects that make flowers their frequent stops. Here are some of the photos! I presented them as a slideshow this time, which is unusual for me…
I am not always good at finding a word to go with the challenge so this week I used my own name and am going with some self-portraits, with a twist. You can’t really see my face…
I’m loving the wonderful sunny weather we had this weekend at home. So when the S challenge came out I wanted to have some photo that had to do with sun. I found this sundial from Har-Ber Village in my folders from the trip my hubby and I made to Grove, OK for our celebration of our first anniversary.
To journey is to travel.This can be a physical travel as one might travel the US or the world. Or it can be a journey of life or spirit. I’ve chosen to go with photos of my travels. Here are just a few from my travels over the last several years that remind me of some of the places I have been.
This photo was taken in San Diego harbor – mind you, this photo is in color, not sepia – during the fires of 2008. I was there and just speechless about the whole situation. People were fleeing the fires, the city was on its way to being overtaken with the fires, and the emotions were ones that I cannot describe.
On a lighter, happier note – this photo is from Beavers Bend, OK. It is the place where we go every year for my husband’s family reunion. This photo was of an early fall morning when the river still had that mist hanging over it and the fall leaves were beautiful!
Ahhhh, Alaska! The first memories this brings back is the joy and relaxation of my honeymoon with my hubby! The scenery was breathtaking and the serenity just – well, serene!
According to MW dictionary the meaning of nuance: a subtle distinction or variation.
So here are some photos that have some “alteration” and appear in my book Perspectives.
Mundane = ordinary or commonplace
So here are a few photos of things that are ordinary but looking at them in an un-ordinary way…
San Diego Marina
Sit With Me
Yellow Rose Visitor
Me Or The Bee?
How Sweet In Pink
Dangerous Bird Perch
According to the MW dictionary unusual means uncommon or rare. So for this week’s post I chose photos from the super moon in March of 2011.
Holding The Moon In Her Hands
Moon Between The Barbed Wire And Branches
Love – (according the MW dictionary) “a strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties.” So here are a few photos that show love in some manner.
This photo is of a colt and his mother.
This photo is of roses found on Memorial Day in the river in Roaring River, MO. It appeared that someone had thrown them in the river. The spider refused to budge from the roses. Perhaps a love scorned?? Or a love remembered??
All of these flowers are literally an inch or less across – petal tip to petal tip. But packed with pretty! Enjoy!
Once again, I am going to participate in the A-Z Archive challenge. Taken during the super moon last April, this seems to have a heart shape shining in between the trees.
Dark Heart Moon

I saw this challenge by FrizzText and thought it might be fun to participate. I’m trying new challenges and competitions this year. Always at my whim…
So here is my photo for the challenge: Cactus & Lantana
