Pictures for Pam, Day 40: Enchanted Followers
(Please view large!)

Stop what you're doing and for just a moment, think of three things that you are grateful for in your life right now. Think about why you feel this way. This is something you can do for yourself every morning to make your day even more wonderful!

On this rainy, cold, but beautiful morning, I walked up and down our driveway and I thought about my day's trio. What was I especially grateful for? Who did I feel grateful towards?

I am grateful for my husband. He's always been there for me, he doesn't give up, and he is a huge reason for all of the fun and adventures we've had in our lives. He's exposed me to things I've never done before, like scuba diving. He's taught me to be the best that I can be whenever he has something to offer; in photography, he's shared his expertise which has shaped who I am. He and I are the best team I've ever had the joy to be part of and we continually prove we are better together than apart. I could go on and on but you get the point! :) I love Steve so much. I am so grateful.

I am grateful for my parents. They raised me and my three brothers to the best of their abilities and we grew up in a nice neighborhood in San Francisco, close enough to all of our schools that we could walk to most of them. My mom and dad were both brilliant and I was lucky enough to get my father's analytical mind (but not his math skills, lol) and my mother's creative and artistic talents. I am so grateful that I have been able to tap into these life-long gifts from my mom and dad.

I am grateful for the community here at ipernity. Since I came back to start my Pictures for Pam project, I have been welcomed home with open arms. I'd been in a terrible depression and hoped that doing something for Pam might make me feel better. It did. More than that, I've been surrounded by the most amazing, supportive, wonderful, warm, and generous people from all over the world. You've made me a new person. I have a renewed sense of confidence in myself and my abilities. You've reminded me of the joy of visiting the world through this community's eyes. I am able to give back my thanks by visiting your photo streams and letting you know how I feel about your pictures. This feeds my insatiable drive to make others happy. Additionally, the feeling of sizzling inspiration when I see some of your photography is so fantastic. Because of you, I am back to my wiggly, happy, creative self. That joy has then made my whole life, my relationship, my world so rich and full of exciting possibilities. I am so grateful to each and every one of you.

Today's picture was something that amazed me when I saw it on my computer. It wasn't something I planned for and I had no idea it was there! As I was looking through images I'd taken a few weeks back, I came to this one and I could hardly believe my eyes! All I can see is Tony Robbins talking to a flock of enchanted followers that gaze up at him in awe. I know that feeling. His teachings are responsible for a huge amount of life-changing understanding and realization. I am so grateful to him. I hope you like my tribute!

Pam, I am so grateful to you. You shook my shoulders and woke me up. You gave me the courage to stand up and take a step forward. A gentle realization came to me that doing something to show you how much I care would in turn begin a healing process for me. Because of you, my downward spiral turned upside-down and now I'm on an upward spiral with no end in sight. I am so grateful to you, my dear friend. May all of our grateful hugs bring you the strength to regain your health. We love you Pam.

this one is a step in the land of make believe my dear Janet. What a wonderful walk it would be to be the size small enough to walk through the path of the small rays that sieve through. Beautifully presented, and quite inviting. I truly hope you find this day a wonderful one and one to smile more than once as you go with your tasks!!

A clever title which fits what you see in the image perfectly! I really like the razor-thin depth of field, which has produced some amazing bokeh! Very nice indeed Janet.

Sehr schön zeigst Du wie das Moos seine Fühler ausstreckt. Dazu hast Du perfekt Tau- oder Regentropfen festgehalten.

Oh wow this is simply stunning. Your photos are spectacular.

I am eternally grateful for my two children. They've given me so much happiness and okay I share them with their spouses, but I love them so much. I too, am grateful for my parents and the happy childhood they gave me. I look back on so many wonderful times and I'm thankful for their teachings and I always vowed to try and be as good a parent as my oarents were to me. Also, like you, I'm very grateful for this family called Ipernity. I have made some incredible friends, you included Janet, and I am so thankful for their friendship.

That is wonderful! Love that single drop hanging over the others and the focus on both is perfect, as Boarischa said, even without Tony Robbins. Had to laugh at your description of yourself as wiggly, though that certainly doesn't apply to getting good focus in a photo. Your wiggliness comes across even in your writing, though you didn't acknowledge which parent it came from. I guess I would have to say we are a wiggly family - no one is able to sit still (except with a book) and no one is able to sit for long at all.
As to your insets, I can see them on the main photo but not individually. That must be because you have them as "private" which is okay. Just wanted on the card photo to follow your comments on it and couldn't.
As to airline travel, I had a little girl (about two) on my last flight who threw a two and half hour temper tantrum, and no, it wasn't air pressure in her ears. She wanted her mom's phone and anything else her mom gave her she threw and screamed. That she was across the aisle made it even worse.

Superb shot and passionate (if wiggly) notes!
But who is Tony Robbins? Not a name that rings any kind of bell. Is he an ipernity member?

An amazing pic, Janet. When I first saw the thumbnail I thought it was a landscape. When I clicked on it I realised that it WAS a landscape but in miniature. And the little sparkle from the raindrop is the icing on the cake. Some thought provoking words accompany the pic. This is something we should all do and maybe the world would be a better place.
Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year,
