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.

Impromptu Post

I went out yesterday afternoon and took some photos to encourage myself that spring really was here.....


















Good Morning Springfield!!!!

No school today!


No driving mama to the store!

This is my neighbor's sculpture where all those flowers were.






Then I woke up this morning, I took some shots of the same places today.

Since I started this the other neighbor's tree broke.






This is why we don't plant until Mother's Day!!!

  3. I love it when rain or dew drops adorn the tender leaves of flowers and plants. The glistening as the sun catches them, making them sparkle. Beautiful pictures!
