WP Photo Challenge: Details

While looking for a photo for this weeks challenge I kept coming back to one that I used 20160612_151259recently in another challenge that focus’ on using non-traditional cameras.

I’m just so taken with the details of this flower. I adore the soft, airy, wispy stamen in shades of delicate purple, the pops of yellow and the silky smooth petals.

just opened petals (1)I took these photos with my Samsung Galaxy 3. I always keep it in my pocket when I go out to water my garden. I never know when one of the blooms will call to be photographed!

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Photo Challenge: Nature ~ Spring peeking in

It’s a beautiful day today!

While you can’t quite smell Spring coming yet, there are a couple little signs of spring popping up this beautiful sunny day.

I love crocus’  They seem to pop up just as I’m tired of winter and longing for spring. They’re like tiny, warm smiles of encouragement!

Again this week I’m sharing some photos that I took with my Nokia Lumia 920 at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.  (By the way… the ROM is celebrating it’s 101 birthday this year!)
