52 Tuesdays Challenge #22: Texture

Welcome to week 22 of the 52 Tuesdays Challenge! Each week I chose a word that begins with at T and share my photos, stories or even a quote. I ask that you join me in the Challenge and share your own photos, stories, quotes, whatever as well. Just link back to this blog post or add your own blog post link to the comments. Have fun!

This week’s T word is Texture!

I have a lot of photos of nature and in some I can almost feel the object’s texture. So I am sharing a few photos with YOU!


Every time I see this photo I remember the silky feel of the petals and the chill that the rain left on the rose. 



This little hermit crab was snuggled in on the beach in Middle Caicos. You can see the grains of sand on its beautifully colored shell. Reminds me of my toes in the sand as the water washes the sand around. 



This last one was taken in one of our favorite spots, Beavers Bend State Park. After major flooding destroyed much of the area along the river it uncovered beautiful layers of rock that were both slick and cold with the river water. 


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.
