The way I spent my morning yesterday {yes, the whole morning}! Description below the image in the link...
It took me 4 hours to make this collage -- I'm now cross-eyed! Cutting out the flowers from their backgrounds, making a template, putting them into the template, adding the borders... who'd-a guessed! The individual flower pix can be found here You can see a original versions here.

Have a beautiful day!
This gallery is a hodgepodge of whatever catches my eye at the moment. These images will eventually be organized into the categories above. Clicking on the larger version of the image will make it full screen. I recommend hitting the Slideshow button and sitting back for a full-screen buffet of beauty!

My latest quest... trying to get pretty fern pix. You might well imagine how challenging that is! Well, after about an hour crawling around on the ground I actually brought home a few I like!

I keep forgetting to post here. Maybe I'll develop the habit. I hope your Memorial Day weekend was lovely. An image from the Vancouver Post Cemetery in Vancouver, Washington

Iris theme this week.  This was my Mother's Day post which I forgot to share here.
People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Totally lost to the photography bug!
Introduction
Sadly, I don't keep Google+ current.  My main photography website is www.synappedphoto.com
I'm also on Flickr:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/fotomakr/

I've started sharing beginner photography tips as Focal Pointers on Facebook
(https://www.facebook.com/pages/FocalPointers/621008691309475?fref=nf)
******************************************
Unfortunately, this world can often be an ugly place. I find joy in searching out beauty and am thrilled and awed if I can sometimes capture those images to share with others.

I discovered photography in the early part of 2006 and have lived, eaten and breathed it ever since.  I still feel like a "newbie" in the photog world and really do appreciate kindly constructive criticism. 

I was surprised to discover a new love for beauty through photography. Birds and flowers never interested me before, but now the challenge of getting a pretty image of them fills my days with wonder!  I've just recently taken on the challenge of trying to learn a bit of portrait photography -- and wow, what a challenge that is!
