This Was Actually An Accident

_MG_8812 Catcus Flower

Hello OLTL Readers! This photo was taken a few ago along with yesterday’s posted photo. The funny thing is that this was not the intended image. Purely accidental, the background was darkened due to the camera settings and became an unexpected surprise. I will be sure to take note of the settings next time for replication.

Droplets Fall Into Darkness

_MG_8917

Photo taken today after the thunderstorm.

I decided to experiment with the camera settings a bit to achieve the darkened background. I have seen this technique in other photos but I was not sure how to achieve it until yesterday. This photo was a happy accident replicated today.

Yesterday’s “Happy Accident”…. will be posted later today.

Enjoy … until then!

A Mother’s Love…

Happy Mother’s Day OLTL Readers!!

A Mother’s love

Flower of a Dogwood Tree

A Mother’s love is something

that no one can explain,

It is made of deep devotion

and of sacrifice and pain,

It is endless and unselfish

and enduring come what may

For nothing can destroy it

or take that love away . . .

It is patient and forgiving

when all others are forsaking,

And it never fails or falters

even though the heart is breaking . . .

It believes beyond believing

when the world around condemns,

And it glows with all the beauty

of the rarest, brightest gems . . .

It is far beyond defining,

it defies all explanation,

And it still remains a secret

like the mysteries of creation . . .

A many splendored miracle

man cannot understand

And another wondrous evidence

of God’s tender guiding hand.

 

- Helen Steiner Rice

May you all have a wonderful day!!
