Pretty Simple

"Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air..."  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Photo of a branch with leaves that I thought was pretty.  I love how you can see the shadows of the leaves on the far side and the bokeh effect in the background.  Wishing everone a wonderful Wednesday.

"Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired. "  ~Jules Renard

A Katydid/grasshopper I photographed quite a while ago while living in Wimauma.  I took this from the archives.  I've also posted this before but on a no longer existing blog.  So here it is again.  Hopefully, those of you visiting haven't seen it before.  If you have I hope you don't mind seeing it again.  I have been bitten by the lazy bug and haven't the energy to turn on the desktop and go through the 300 plus photos taken over the last two days.  Most will be deleted but I hope to find a few to post over the next couple of weeks at least. 

I had actually prepared two blog posts that were scheduled to post tonight and tomorrow night at midnight but while messing around with blogger dashboard on the iPad I deleted them by accident.  Will do my best to find something new to post for tomorrow, until then please enjoy the "katyhopper" (I know that's not a real word).  I think he/she is kind of cute.  Don't you?  Oh, and the quote has nothing to do with the photo.  I just liked it and thought I'd share.

Wishing everyone a fantastic Tuesday!!

Sunlit Marigolds

"Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed."  ~Walt Whitman

Some Marigolds my sister planted.  They look beautiful with the evening sun shining on them

A Glorious Morning Sky

"I was born to catch dragons in their dens
And pick flowers
To tell tales and laugh away the morning
To drift and dream like a lazy stream
And walk barefoot across sunshine days."
~James Kavanaugh,

The sky a little after 8:30am this morning.  I was in a black and white kind of mood.  Wishing everyone a blessed Sunday and a wonderful week.

Light Giving

"To give light to those who sit in darkenss and the shadow of death,
To guide our feet into the way of peace."  ~Peace: Luke 1:79

I attended the memorial service for my Brother-in-Law's cousin yesterday.  It was a very lovely service.  As I sat in the front entrance of the church after the service I couldn't help notice the beautiful chandelier's hanging from the ceiling.  I shot this with my phone camera and then added an effect from an app called littlephoto.  I really like the way it came out.  I think it looks ethereal.
