*My country,’ tis of thee,
sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing;
land where my fathers died,
land of the pilgrims’ pride,
from every mountainside let freedom ring!
My native country, thee,
land of the noble free, thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
thy woods and templed hills;
my heart with rapture thrills, like that above.
Let music swell the breeze,
and ring from all the trees sweet freedom’s song;
let mortal tongues awake;
let all that breathe partake;
let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong.
Our fathers’ God, to thee,
author of liberty, to thee we sing;
long may our land be bright
with freedom’s holy light;
protect us by thy might, great God, our King.*
Born in the Northern United States, now residing in the Southern parts. I have raised 5 children and am now raising number 6 who has turned 7 yrs. old. this year. I have 9 Grand-Children total.I like taking pictures like most people and I am my biggest critic. Most times when I’m snapping a picture I am seeing something else, and it would be great if someone out there spots in the shot what I seen, then I will know that I snapped the importance of the subject.
There’s a subject out there just waiting to be photographed, an awesome, jaw-dropping composition! BUT, until I find that, I hope that you’ll view what I have to offer this community of so many wonderful photographers, painters, sketchers, writers, etc.
Besides photos, I also love to dwaddle in the abstract world, creating something new out of something ordinary.
Your feedback is what will help me to grow, it’s the second pair of eyes that I need to keep my vision focused :) So in advance, thankyou for viewing and commenting on my works :)
