For those that replied to my photo request… thank you!

I got some interesting picks from friends and family out of my photos to help me narrow down my choices.

It was SO HARD to pick just two to submit. And the ones I thought I liked best and thought would be the favorites were not what others chose so it was quite interesting what others preferences were.

Here are the two I submitted.  I am not convinced they were my best, but I liked them.  I got so weary trying to figure it out, I just sort of pointed and clicked and those were it!   I have named them “Celestial Flower” and “Ahhhh-Green”.   🙂   Please click to see them larger.

I’ll share some of the winners with you after all the dust settles. Thanks again!

Help me pick two! Scott Kelby’s World Photo Walk…

I recently participated in Scott Kelby’s World Photo Walk and had a blast with my photo group… our “Walk” was in Palm Harbor, FL.  I took many many pictures and have actually narrowed them down to these so far. I need help selecting TWO to submit to the World competition. I’m not fooling myself as far as chances to win, but I want to participate.

If you can take a few minutes to watch and review these images, would love to know what two are YOUR favorites!

Need to hear TODAY, July 25th so I can submit before midnight tonight.

These images are a bit small on this page, so to see as a full size slideshow, please CLICK HERE.

Over to the right, you’ll see small icons to enable a slide show or other formats.  Although there may be some images that appear to be duplicates, there are actually slight differences in contrast or color and you may only be able to see these on a full screen view. ALSO, because the file sizes are large, it sometimes pauses to “load” the full, sharp image.

🙂  Look forward to hearing from you!

It’s all about attitude… Happy 4th of July!

A perfect quote for this weekend — the birthday celebration of our country – a country with a history full of amazing stories of overcoming.

“Life without dreams is no life at all. When our existence gets reduced to a list of problems to solve or things to check off, passion dries up. Imagine a different list, one comprised of projects and activities that are the expression of your heart and soul. Reconnect to what makes you happy. Do you know what that is?”
~Marcia Wieder, author — Dreams are Whispers from the Soul

Typically the news is full of stories to go along with the holiday and no matter what your political position is, in spite of our troubled times, this is still considered one of the best places on earth to live.

When I am leaning towards my own pity pot something (or someone) always seems to presents itself to bring me back to gratitude and inspiration. And that is what happened again today.

This morning’s Today Show featured the story of a crippled and brain injured marine by the name of Keith Zeier. He made a commitment to run/walk 100 miles from Key Largo to Key West to raise funds for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Amazingly, he accomplished this in spite of collapsing at 75 miles. It was a wonderful story and great inspiration to me. I found another video and story about it here:

This brings me to another site that always seems to come up with tidbits of wisdom and inspiration and today I happened upon two that really struck home with me. Continue reading
