If you are living the life that you really want, and only to find out that this is not for you. Perhaps you already wore the clothes that you were meant to wear.  I know, at least you can say I’ve been there and done that.

  1. This is a good post, filled with mysteries and glints of gold. I will step off from here into something new, somewhere. Thank you.

    1. Thanks Jeffrey, I kept thinking that I need a macro lens or extension tube to make the image clearer but it doesn’t look like I need it now. I just need to have a steady hand or carry my tripod around. 🙂

  2. Truly beautiful photos!

    Those echinaceas at the Biltmore Estate (in June 2010) is amazing. And so is the orchid at your dad’s place.

    I love jelly… these treat are perfect anytime of the year. 🙂

    1. Thanks Cambree, I might venture out and get myself an orchid also. I guess I’m saving colorful photos for the rainy day. 🙂
