Flower of the Day 

Black & White – Before & After

I decided to photograph my daughter, Kaila, relaxing on my lanai one day.

I wanted to practice taking photos of people.

She was a good sport about posing for me.

It was my first attempt at portraits.

Flower Collage

Collage – a combination of things.

Although the French word literally means ‘gluing’, I took the liberty of adding a photograph of these vegetable flowers.

Photographed this collage of flowers at a nursery school on Anna Maria Island, Florida.

Playful and bursting with whimsea, pieces of various colored wooden shapes were added to this fence.

Menacing clouds hovering over the marina

low lying clouds summon caution
