Very fun post, Elk... DELICIOUS photos! Especially the guitar pic. ;o) At the moment cloud nine is days gardening & communing with Mother Nature. Happy Days ((HUGS))

So many lovely photos but the strawberry is my pick ... the innovative angle.

Lovely post, beautiful shots!
A soft cloud for me?
Holding infant Landon, chatting with friends (bloggers included), and styling photos for magazine editors who hire me to do it -- I can get lost in it because it's so much fun.

Have a great day!

What makes me feel like I'm "floating on a soft cloud"?

Your photos ... your art.

They leave me reflective (literally and figuratively).

love the soft clouds
of your photos...
ALL your stringed instrument ones,

from work & seeing
my loved ones faces

our dear lives together.

I love this Elk - your daughter has the most beautiful smile, she radiates happiness - just lovely and I love you have captured the family in the reflection of her sunglasses. It's always good to make a list like this as it reminds you of all the great things in your life!
