Outside is my round cast iron table that my mother in law gave to me. Our children and the children on our street tend to flock to our house all year long. I have found that chalk makes the most interesting designs and revelations from children. It never gets old. So I leave a bucket of chalk outside for all the children to play with when ever they want. The sun was shining through my car port the other day right on the chalk. It looked so pretty to my eyes I ran inside for the camera and snapped away. Since I am trying to learn how to utilize the benefits of my Corel X3, I decided to play around with it tonight and this is what I came up with….Kind of Fun isn’t it~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Photography is the only way to capture “time in a bottle” and the everlasting scent of the moment.
