This collage is breathtaking, Elk... truly, the very different textures paired together excite, yet soothe too... May we lift you to keep going. ;o) ((HUGS))

I like these photo pairs. The geometric patterns of shadow and fabric against wood, and of stone against sky. The lacy patterns of field and tree and fence beside the delicate pattern of the crochet.

I love how you contrasted the tiny details (white crochet) and the imposing structures (the church). Through your camera lens, they both look magnificent.

this foursome is beautiful. the collection speaks of faith and love, quiet, peace and comfort - with a hint of lonesomeness that i suspect you are feeling in your empty nest. hope all is well.

i want to thank you for being my friend here in the blogging world even when i have been neglectful. it means so much to me.

Lovely photos. It can be hard to stay interested in a project, I have found, too. But, sometimes the excitement comes back. Other times, not so much...
