Along the Tracks

 

Along the tracks mosaic

The other evening I said to my husband did he want to keep me company while I went down the road to take a few pictures.   He said he would come along for the ride and off we went. I had noticed on my way back from having my 6 week cut and colour done that there was lots of Queen Anne”s Lace and other wild flowers growing in the ditch next to the rail track.  I thought it might make a nice mosaic for today.   I did not bring along the tripod  and there was a slight breeze so I had fun trying to get the focus correct.   I am using a template that I have used before from Isobelle LaFrance.   I like that it looks like a bunch of snap shots that you might take on vacation.

I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  Stop by for a visit.   Have a great week.

What a nice collection you've made. I like the shot of the tracks - it would make the sort of card that would have meaning for many occasions.
Happy Sunday!

The train tracks are perfect in Black and white! And you always get such sharp close ups of flowers! Very nice mosaic!

The Queen Anne's Lace and Brown-eyed Susans are all blooming here along the roadsides as well. How interesting that they are blooming there, too. I like this sort of a mosaic. It's free and easy like a summer day.

You captures some beautiful scenery. Who says it has to be green and lush to be beautiful?! That photo of the tracks is lovely.

Another great selection to add to your portfolio, Valerie.

Love the Queen Anne's Lace - it's always been one of my favorite wildflowers and I've always wanted some in my garden - but I resist knowing how invasive they are.

Have a good day.
