Somehow African Violets survive in my home.
I think they like to be neglected, or they like the light
in the room where they live. Or maybe I got lucky.
I just took this photo this evening and totally love the
velvet look in the green leaves, contrasting with the blossoms.
Have you ever noticed that these little gems actually glisten?
Okay, I have to confess, there is more than one reason that I took these images.
I have a new lens.
A Tamron 70-300mm F/4-5.6.
For my photographer friends out there, you must know
that I’m doing a happy dance! And scratching my head…
trying to figure out just how this works. Oh well, more
practice, more photo excursions, whatever it takes…
And I want to share a bit from my gratitude journal / art journal
that I worked on yesterday. My heart is full of gratitude for
all those I’m connected to, that vast web of people
both at work and in my personal life,
in my biological family
as well as “adopted” loved ones near and far,
who affect me in positive ways.
That new lens allowed me to focus on just those words,
“Love being connected!”
