Saturday Self-Challenge: Something that makes you feel better One of my favorite things to do to relieve tension is to garden. Being among natural things is rejuvenating to the soul! Since I moved to Florida, I haven't yet been able to garden outside because we are renting a small house with no yard. So I have had to make do with creating a potted garden inside. This plant is my most recent addition to the collection. Once our forever home is built, I will again be able to garden outside to my heart's content! Have a good weekend, everyone!

A Vase of Shells

Saturday Self-Challenge: Anything Glass in B&W I am still learning how to use my new camera (I have a feeling I'll be learning for a long time!), and wanted to try B&W in camera instead of using an editor. After some time spent learning how to use the feature, I managed to get a somewhat decent image. Happy Easter and have a great week ahead!

Saturday Self-Challenge: Fragile Glass is fragile even though hard. Sea shells are fragile like glass. These shells were collected locally at the beaches of Melbourne, Florida. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Saturday Self-Challenge: Covid-19 One of the hallmarks of the Covid-19 pandemic are masks. Never before has a populace been so universally impacted by a disease. These are the masks I wear when out and about. My favorite is the one shown on top.

Falling Water

Saturday Self-Challenge: Thrown or Falling This was quite a challenge; I finally opted to use running water from the tap to capture water drips. I used my flash to capture them more clearly. Not exactly the most clever image, but satisfactory for the challenge (plus I was happy with the results of the flash). Have a wonderful week ahead, everyone!

Saturday Self-Challenge: A Bottle from Above I have always loved colored glass and the way light shines through it, creating the most interesting shadows. Another shot from a different angle is in the note. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Thank you so much for your comments and likes, so very appreciated!
