Monday Up Close

Thought I would share a few more photos from our summer trip.  These were taken in a small roadside area that is maintained by individuals it appeared.  The park was near Door County, Wisconsin.  Hope this brings some sunshine to another Monday.

Mine are previously shot photos cause I do not like getting in the cold wind to take photos of winter dead things : )  We in the Northern hemisphere are ready for some sun and color!
I will be submitting to Skywatch Friday, Saturday Critters, Macro Monday II, and I Heart Macro.  Please, take a few minutes to visit the meme sites for wonderful photos.  You’ll be glad you did.

Sunday on the Patio

Sunday morning time was spent in the little garden area around our apartment patio.  Here are a few of the captures from this time spent working with the new camera using two different 39-year-old lenses from our first SLR camera.  Not much automation for these.  Hope you can enjoy this little bit of beauty I saw this morning.

 There is a fence gate, just out of focus as the flowers were getting my attention.

 A white winged dove with a damaged foot/claw.  It limps around our place.  Wish I could help it.
