Weekly Photo Challenge: A New Point of View

Christmas Surprise2

The Christmas Snow with an indoor framing

Tried to capture the un-predicted Christmas snow, but was having issues with the lighting. When I stepped back a couple of steps, the window, the tree and the plant made for an unplanned frame, and naturally silhouette effect.

I walked by this tree dozens of times, and never realized how spacious and gorgeous it was inside, behind the veils of flowers, wispy branches and new leaves.. this day, I had to investigate. And I loved how the fallen petals were making a soft carpet. This was a public park, but I was soo tempted to make it my secret quiet spot!

the bridge

The Bridge @ the Township Park

This bridge was only about 50 yards or less from the tree. I would often rest a few moments here and take in the soothing sounds of the creek. But this excursion was planned for photo taking. I was trying play around with the angles. My daughter does this so effortlessly, I’m still learning!

This critter pretty much ‘fell’ onto the porch… almost as if it was unintentional. I’m NOT a bug person! But, at least it’s not as big as the ones in Nicaragua that the kids like to play with…

It can leave, now…

One single item, design or thought – then repeat = a pattern!

One tile square is nice - repeated creates a different picture!

Nature understands this concept….

One rose like bloom joined with others a tiny bouquet, multiplied - a tree full of color!
