… not as beautiful
as the sunrise mosaic
at Small Reflections

of course I’m using
my Casio Exilim …
(Nikon’s in the shop)


yearly cleaning and
‘adjustments’ … recommended
by those in the know


suffering a bit
of ‘withdrawal’ and I hope
they’ll be finished soon

just a wee bit different …
always beautiful

Returning from a
sunset ‘photo shoot’ my eyes
spotted reflections

in the windows of
these houses facing the beach
… sunset with palm trees.

The older I get
I find traditions changing
each and ev’ry year

but it seems we will
gather as a family
once again this year 😉

Experimenting
in Photoshop Elements
I came up with two

versions that I found
pleasing to my own eyes and
decided to share

Multi-tasking at
busy times of year is the
best that I can do

Wishing everyone
joyful celebrations with
family and friends

is a favorite, but the

‘pinkish’ view below

is a close second …
Photoshop Experiments

yielded these results:

Dramatic shifts
to my ‘pinkish’ skies emerged

with these two filters:

My Avatar

I'm a happily retired teacher. Originally blogging as storyteller, I've changed my avatar early in 2010 to reflect my recent growing interest in photography. You might recognize me from one of my three original Blogger-based sites:

Small Reflections

Blog Rolls, Bling and Blurbs

Welcome to my first WordPress site. I hope you'll look around, leave me a comment or two, and check back as often as time permits.

Hugs and blessings,
happily retired gal
