My Brag Book of Friends
I've had a great time visiting all my blogging friends this week. For some reason there have been more pictures (photos) this week. You people take some of the most astounding pictures I have ever seen. While I'm not a huge fan of bugs, I've seen some shots of them that are mind boggling. The wispy wings on dragonflies that seem to shimmer with a cloak of jewels, the droplet of water that appears to be an explosion of gigantic proportions and the rose that still had the dew shimmering on the petals. Some of you are professional, such as David McMahon at Authorblog (http://david-mcmahon.blogspot.com/) who can take a photo of a nut and bolt and make you think it's a skyscraper with a fancy restaurant sitting atop it's shining silver peak. Some of you are learning and growing with each shot, such as Mari-Nanci (http://smilnsigh.blogspot.com/) and Penny (http://lavenderhillstudio.blogspot.com/) who have been exploring their own landscapes to share with us. I take pictures everyday but they mostly look like amateur hour. My son takes pictures much as David does, professionally. He has won awards for his photos. He didn't get it from me. My visions lie in the garden where I can picture in my mind exactly how something will look and hit it dead on. But like I said, I've been visiting everyone and admiring the photos and wishing I could take such glorious photos as Merisi in Vienna (http://merisi.blogspot.com/) that are so concise in their composition that you can make out the color of the shoelaces on a cyclists shoes. I have just been so amazed at the multitude of wonderful photos that I just had to tell you how talented I think you are. Please, keep on snapping those great shots that allow us to travel all over the world and feel as though we've spent the day with a tour guide viewing fantastic gardens and lovely cities, feeling a part of your home renovations and decorations. Rhoda at http://southernhospitality-rhoda.blogspot.com/ retired...not! She's as busy as ever she was and has the photos to prove it. Jeanne at http://jeanne-lifeorsomethinglikeit.blogspot.com/ continues to improve so that it doesn't matter what she points her camera at, it's a great shot. Okay, nuff bragging on my friends...just you go check them out and see for yourselves...and I haven't even scratched the surface.
