My iTunes: Beauty of Simplicity by Telecast

Internet connection...CHECK!

YAY! I am back up and running but will be traveling a bit. These three shots are a few of my favorites from our exploring in Venice. As we strolled, I always had my eye on the beautiful fruits and flowers on the stands throughout the narrows alleyways. I am drawn to all the vibrant colors and smells. I hope that these bring some cheer to your day like they did to mine.

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!

They grow while we're not watching, and then like little gifts they bloom and produce fruit for us to enjoy.

Plants. Gotta love'em. (Note the shift in styles there. Just playing around a little.)

Thanks for sharing, Anna. Congrats on the 'net connection!

Beautiful. I especially love the grapes and sunflowers! I went to Hillsong again this week and thought of you...there was someone near me taking pictures with an SLR.

Aren't flowers the best to shoot?!

They're so vibrant and can completely change the way a person feels! Hence the reason I'm so happy!

Have a good week!

Glad you're back! I know I would have withdrawals if I didn't have internet access!

The grapes are my favorite!

Mike said...

Stunning Anna, I would have a hard time choosing my favorites among these. The sunflowers are brilliant but I love the grape picture.

Have fun in your wandering this week. Glad you are back online.

Hi Anna, those are sooo beautiful! My favorite is the grape basket. I even dreamed I was in Venice last night, your pictures and stories literally make us dream!

Really nice. The flowers are almost the same color as Lovely Wife's plumbago flowers in our back yard. I love that color.

All 3 still lifes are very nice, Anna, but the Sunflower one is intense. It is just beautiful.
