My second entry into this weeks WP Photo Challenge is one that many can appreciate……..
……..but how long will it last?!?!
Thank you for visiting and of course your comments are welcomed!
Taking pictures has opened my eyes to a lot of things. One thing in particular is trying to see more than what is in front of my face. I began composing pictures in my head. Thinking of how I could photograph a subject or looking for more than the obvious view.
This picture is an example of my process. While sitting in my car I notice this tree with berries on it and I began to think of how I can see more than just berries on a tree.
So I when I looked at this tree a little closer I noticed a bug. Not wanting to get too close and spook the bug by having it land on me because that would not be a great shot from any perspective.
The softness of the blue sky and cotton looking clouds peaking thru the branches made a great contrast from of the harshness of the red berries.
This was taken on my cell phone, Samsung Note III.

All suggestions and comments welcomed.
Although it is not quite “nighttime” yet I thought the colors in the sky were a perfect entrance for the approaching night.
My cellphone did not do the sky the justice that it deserved as I attempted to get the images.
I hope that you can envision what I had the pleasure of viewing.

Snapping string beans with mom-mom.
My grandson wanted to help me prepare dinner for this evening.
I clipped the ends of the fresh stringbeans and he snapped them in half.

To my surprise he helped with the entire pot.
