Thankful


Soaking up warm light
and sunbaked November images
for the
long, cold, blue winter ahead ~ 
with an Impressionist's eye,




and also, in a selective sharp focus manner.




Giving thanks for a wonderful family, friends, health, creative time,
and the design talents of Caroline at Nowordz Photography,
for my new header!

Wishing you a happy, creative, and 
thankful week!

and Mortal Muses.

  11. The whole concept of photography is basically seeing light. How you take the remains of what was once summer and turn them into such delicate images of wonder mystifies me. Even in dry, dead leaves you've found beauty.
    Your new header is wonderful.
    Cheers.

  21. These are utterly amazing. The soft photos are gorgeous but that first one o the "sharp" photo is stunning. I think I could look at it all day. Aren't the curls of the leaves beautiful?
