Mosaic Monday - Recent Photos
I took photos of roses in a rose garden down the road from my house. Most of them were passed their prime but some were fresh. They are so pretty and smell wonderful.
The bottom is a Summer Azure butterfly at the wetlands. When their wings are open they are a pretty blue. They flitter about so and it was impossible to take a photo during flight.
I received these dishcloths from a friend.
I have not tried them yet so I will post a review once I have used them.
Here's a review which sings their praises.
my photography. I was wanting a back drop stand that would collapse and carry easily.
I researched some DIY options on line and then went shopping. It was pretty easy doing my shopping in the plumbing department. Cutting with a hack saw was easy.
I set it up with the sides being 3 feet and the top pieces are 1 foot or 2 feet. This one is set up at 5 feet.
The PVC pipe has letters printed on them so I checked out a solution which is acetone. I will get some of that today.
I will make a carrying bag to hold all the pieces.
I picked some pansies and placed them in this small crystal vase.
I was working on my Macro Monday challenge (line symmetry) and created this image. I placed the vase on a large mirror and captured the reflection as well as the real object. The background is the ceiling and the gradient aspect happened naturally.
It was too large for the challenge but I think it turned out really well
As they headed for bed, I headed out with my camera. With sunset at 10:10 pm it took a while for the sun to be at the right height. You can see birds on the water. There was lots of waterfowl. The reeds provide a wonderful foreground for this shot.
