Falling Water for Straight Out of the Camera Sunday

Do you ever have trouble deciding what photo you want to post on any given day? Tonight I had that problem.  I wandered around in the yard for a bit looking at the flowers and the birds and the frogs in the pond.  Nothing really turned my crank.    I spotted the waterbarrel that used to be our only water feature.  My husband had fish in it and some aquatic plants.  It served its purpose until we finally decided to build a pond.   Now the poor barrel is falling apart.  If it wasn't for the liner on the inside it would not hold water at all.   We have an old fashioned hand pump that we circulate water through from a circulating pump in the bottom of the barrel.   To get to the point I decided to take a photo of the water dripping into the barrel.   It seemed interesting to me.   I hope you think so too.

Very good shot. I also like taking photos of water (fountains for instance).
I love the textures and filtered light through the falling water! Lovely shot!

Great shot. I also have a hard time finding a good photo shot. I think I have photographed everyting around the outside of my home and neighborhood.

Water certainly is an interesting subject to photo - I can't even venture outside just now - yesterday it was too windy to photograph anything and today - its thunderstorms. Thanks for the inspiration.

It's a neat shot, Valerie. Flowing water is never still except in photos. :)

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
