  1. Good morning, Cee. What a nice way to start my day 😉 Thank you!
    You have several different kind of photos here. I think that tells us a little about you… in your eyes, everything, almost everything, is beautiful! And I like that.
    Have a wonderful day!


    1. In today’s age feel free to photograph them as long as they are in a public place. It took me a couple years to get used to it myself. I like to use my zoom lens so they don’t know I’m taking it. I personally don’t like posed photos.


  2. These are all so beautiful! I think the photo that captured the sun’s rays is probably my favorite though. It’s amazing the way you captured them going all the way to the ground!


  3. Thanks for the feature! And thanks for putting on the challenges. It’s interesting to see through so many different perspectives. Your pictures are great. I LOVE the tulip one!
