Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

sleeping beauty

I have had the theme “Inside” in my head since Friday. Since I really like shooting things outside, I kept the concept in the back of my mind, ever mulling it around. Today it is raining. A late winter/early spring kind of rain. Light and soft, but grey. A cleansing of the winter grime. I started taking photos of the raindrops on the windows, wind chimes in the background. Then I took some shots of the drops in my beloved water container on the deck. I liked those a lot, so I took more. Upon editing these photos, I noticed a sunken passion-flower leaf leftover from last summer that somehow looks like a submerged water beauty. Under the water, waiting, pondering, smiling, looking up…she is rather eerie in there.  I think my daughter will love her, she loves water and mermaids and fairies. So, this is my photo for Inside. She lives inside my water garden, content and peaceful, enjoying the view.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Joy

My MermaidHappy New Year, as this is the last WPC of the Year. We went to a beautiful cabin down in Hocking Hills for our Christmas gift, and they had a hot tub. My daughter was in heaven, this is her underwater, loving it to the fullest! Pure Joy! We had a wonderful time and I am ever so grateful for how blessed we are. I hope everyone is having a wonderful end of their year! Peace and love and light to everyone! The coloring play on the photo is done on “Colorstrokes” program by MacPhun. Easy and phun to use!
