I am thrilled. I just learned that one of my photos is featured today at Shutter Sisters One Word Project. Their theme word for February is “nurture”. Check it out and let me know what you think. Thank you so much Shutter Sisters.

While I’m at it, I should let you know that while I was on my road trip there was another of my posts published over at Vision and Verb if ย you care to see that one as well — it’s an abstract image paired with a haibun. As if this wasn’t excitement enough, I just received notification of something else really exciting regarding one of my canine photos. Please stay tuned; I’ll be able to announce the news by the beginning of March (keeping secrets, especially such great news, is so darn difficult to keep).

Photo information: The fish market at the end of Beacon Avenue in Sidney, BC. One of my favourite places to be.

Great photo ๐Ÿ™‚ I love everything related to water ๐Ÿ™‚

I just checked out your Vision and Verb post — that is one of the funkiest pictures I’ve ever seen!! I assume it’s a close-up of tea??
