  1. Lovely soft picture of something fading away… really like the processing in this one… and sorry to hear about the creepy comment.

  2. And the pollens come out, no thanks i’ll be allergic hehe. But this indeed is a great shot and great use of DOF!

  3. Ohhhhh. You misunderstood me, Elaine, with my comment (now deleted!). I was saying that many of us have understood Marlon’s comment and that feeling of being “nobody.”…and then yours about taking the time off from commenting, for whatever reason! So sorry you misunderstood me. All I have is love, trust me!I am in Zurich right now at a hotel that is not sending messages from my Outbox. So sorry I couldn’t respond via e-mail. Well, I guess I could from the server!

  4. Lovely flower and very nice soft process

  14. Oh, wow! I used to sneak around and blow these into the wind when I was little. If I ever got caught it was like the world was gonna come to and end:-) Like they weren’t gonna blow to the four winds anyway. You’ve brought back great memories with this one, Elaine.

  15. Ohh I like the green in this! Nice job processing this one.

  17. Well I’m heading out to mow the lawn for the last time in my shorts and tee-shirt and pick the last of the tomato’s from the vine. We may get our first freeze of the year this weekend. Now does that make you feel better. 🙂
