For You at Easter

Sending wishes to everyone for a happy, safe and blessed Easter this beautiful Sunday.

“Our Savior lived again. The most glorious, comforting, and reassuring of all events of human history had taken place—the victory over death. The pain and agony of Gethsemane and Calvary had been wiped away. The salvation of mankind had been secured. The Fall of Adam had been reclaimed. The empty tomb that first Easter morning was the answer to Job’s question, ‘If a man die, shall he live again?’ To all within the sound of my voice, I declare, If a man die, he shall live again. We know, for we have the light of revealed truth.”

President Thomas S. Monson, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

A Word A Week Photograph Challenge – Round

Once a week Sue dips into her old English Oxford dictionary and picks a word on the page that it falls open at.  The challenge is to post a photograph, poem, story – whatever the genre you like best to describe of what that word means to you.









Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge: Macro

Sally of Lens and Pens says:  Macro is a walk through a plot to catch the audience by surprise. It’s a story that visually tantalizes with unexpected splendor in the miniscule. But small does not always aim to please. Truly, it’s a challenger’s challenge.

I think of my contributions as sort of macro! One of these days I’ll invest in a macro lens for my iPhone5. The photo of Nicky has only been cropped. The flower was edited in Snapseed.

  The beauty of the surroundings was interrupted only by the ear-splitting, unmuffled, open exhaust sounds of the airboat traveling 70 miles per hour…!

Skywatch Friday

The weekly challenge is to post a photo which includes the sky. Here is my contribution! These were taken with my iPhone5 and are unedited. Don’t worry about that little teeny tiny black speck on the left edge of the hazy sun. Turns out a bird flew right across just as I snapped! I put that in just in case you were wondering or worrying about your monitor!!
