The art of collecting the interesting and intriguing things of this world and bringing excitement of the possibility of “freezing” that moment in time are the reasons that my eyes have broadened to look under and over and in between the winds of the nights and the lights of the days…… Come walk beside me and we can be the “sunshine” for this season in time……….. just walk beside me…………..

    A gem it is Brenda. Beautifully taken.

  • Ah…. John…. so pleased that you think so…… things flying in the air can be difficult to find through the lens hole!! LOL
    and then to have them look like something worth showing…
    but this one is a treat to me…. so glad you think so also!!!
