I love the delicate new leaves of springtime – looking at them, photographing them. (And the contrast here between the mature branch and the new growth seemed like a good contribution to Tuesdays of Texture, too!) My son asked me to take this shot particularly because he noticed that this little baby branch with its […]Read More Tuesdays of Texture: May 9, 2017

It’s definitely not an organized kind of environment – particularly at this time of year, when the vines have […]Read More Weekly Photo Challenge: CHAOS
