|Macro of Mother's Day Orchids|
Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of an artist's soul and explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.
MAGICAL MONDAY MEME
'linky' below to join in
While attending an 80th birthday of a friend and former neighbor, I was feeling a bit low on energy due to a cold, yet when I began taking photographs of the people socializing and having fun, I found my inner spirit being lifted because I was feeling creative. It was the same all weekend as I took photos of the orchids (photo above) and photographing my art work recently hung in a space at local gallery that I felt my spirit soar.
So today I am sharing that creativity and viewing others expressing their creative selves at Macro Monday and Creative Everyday. It is also our own blog hop day and hopefully will be viewing even more 'creatives' in action as you link up at the end of the post after Quote for the Day. A photo which I took at the party I attended is below in honor of a wonderful friend.
I love your orchids and your arm full of flowers. So pretty. I hope you had an awesome mother's day.ReplyDelete
