Graceful in Nature

In taking a look at my work you will notice quite a bit of nature photos. I truly believe that there is so much beauty in nature that in any moment you will see something new and beautiful – and sometimes quirky! So for the Daily Post Photo Challenge: Graceful I am sharing a few things in nature that feel graceful to me. Enjoy!


International Women’s Day: Where’s My Backpack Challenge

Where’s My Backpack has a great challenge: International Women’s Day. There are a lot of inspiring women in my world. And I am proud to be a successful woman. Mind you that success can be defined in many ways and always very personally. So here are a few photos that are my tribute to women.

For the sweetness and the softness of women. We are strong enough to cry, too.

And not to forget my own mother – we do an art show together each November. She draws and paints and I take photos!My mother & I at an art show

Red, White or Red & White: Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

I’m loving Cee’s challenge this week of Red, White, or Red & White. My favorite color is red so this is just my thing!

I’m sharing flowers with you today. Two of my favorites – gardenias and roses.

The first is a gardenia from the bush outside my office window after a rain shower.

The second photo is of a rose called “Silver Lining”. It has a beautiful white silver underside to the petals.
