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!

I like your mosaic, Valerie! Have a great week!
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.
So glad you told us what you used for that mosaic. Makes a grand presentation. I love Queen Anne's Lace.

I love both the subject matter and the presentation - well done mosaic, Val.
Beautiful! I love using this lay-out, too!
The Queen Anne's Lace is abundant here in Va. this year.
Blessings, Audrey

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…
