A single-single rose for you, Freda. We are getting a hint of our Autumn to be up here...I started wearing socks again for the last couple days; the rain is very cold when I go running in it; fledglings from many of my birds are showing up at the feeders with their parents; and my inner metabolism is gearing up to put up the storm windows, bring in the harvest as I may and start canning those soups and stews, sauces, veggies and fruits. The temp here tonight is 56 and going down...like I said, just a hint.
Hey, Lady..."it's" a lot easier than it may appear. I simply let the camera do all the work. Oh, I may have to crawl around a bit to find the right angle, or wait for that light that I am devoted to to render all the impact and emotion that made me take the photo in the first place, but, it's just a snapshot in so many words. Only rarely do I use Photoshop to make any major revisions that didn't exist to begin with....that's why I used THIS particular photo to have this chat....could you imagine me sitting there trying to create all of those separate images in each single drop? Yes...it could be do, I suppose, after all, I can create my own universe and have the wind and stars at my command. Not bad for a guy that made his living digging in the dirt, and all his spare time climbing mountains only to have to climb back down. Hahahahaha!
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much
advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and
touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.~Henri Nouwen
Morning, Freda! How went the festivities during the fourth? I was just lying around still trying to get over my pulled back...still have moving to do, so it better improve in a hurry! HA! Glad to see you here, now all I have to do is get you a little active in a couple of the groups...??? (Incidentally, nice legs in the avatar....forgive me for looking!)
