I am humbled by the beauty and mystery of life.

What beautiful photographs I’ve seen in the past few days! I feel incredibly humble showing my own photos. I’m a beginner and opened to any comments or suggestions as I feel I have much to learn. I’ve always enjoyed taking photos but for the past 9 years, my camera has been mainly focused on my 5 lovely grandchildren. I’m so inspired by what I’ve seen on this site… I can only hope your amazing collective talent rubs off on me!

    Sandra…this is purely stunning!!!! Don’t you love that exhibition…? I must go soon…I think it’s here for another little while…..your butterfly dance is simply divine!

  • Thank you so much Marie…I’m touched by your words. This is the beginning of this exhibition…well I think it started mid February. Last year I waited till almost the end but I saw a lot more butterflies this time around. I could stay there all day and still feel enchanted!
