I am someone who enjoys taking photos, my subjects are random, from bugs to babies. Photography is therapy for me, I have no real knowledge of the art, I am learning a bit here and there. I use an inexpensive camera.I simply love taking shots of interesting or beautiful things I see. I love the adventure of attempting to get the perfect shot. Please enjoy these photos and share them with your friends. For me the ultimate success is knowing someone may be amazed or made to smile.

Friday Moment

A Friday Ritual: A photo- no words-capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special' extraordinary moment. A moment you want to pause, savour and remember.
"This Moment", is a ritual found on, "Life Inspired" by the Wee Man and "Almost There", by Sarah Jane. Which I confiscated from "Raising Amelie" By Alejandro

  10. Thank you Tinktinkie, I was at my mom's we spent the day together, when we got back this was the first thing I saw in the yard, it was the only one there.

  11. Dandelions remind me of my childhood..loved pulling them up and blowing til nothing was left. A simple joy of life!! Lovely shot :)

  12. I'm going to make a wish then. . . :-) Love it.

  13. Brings back such sweet memories of blowing the seeds off the flower heads and watching them lilt in the breeze that beckoned them to new destinations.

    I never minded dandelions in my yard . . .

    Blessings, and thanks for sharing!

  14. Can feel myself blowing it away and watching it scatter...As always...As always.....XOXOXOX


  15. @ David, Thank you for looking. Sweet childhood memories.
    @ Pamanner, you go right on ahead and blow.

    @ Martha, Thanks for stopping over. I always end up mowing them but don't fight them overly hard. I love the way they are so delicate.
    @ Bongo, Thanks for stopping, I love the way the flit away.

  16. Jan you made this look like a chandelier :) Beautiful!

  17. Ready for a puff of a breeze to blow it away, and continue the cycle of life. Great photo Jan and awesome moment.
