Weekly Photo Challenge – Treasure

“Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version

“Sleep my little baby-oh
Sleep until you waken
When you wake you’ll see the world
If I’m not mistaken…

Kiss a lover
Dance a measure,
Find your name
And buried treasure…

Face your life
Its pain,
Its pleasure,
Leave no path untaken.”
Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book

Weekly Photo Challenge – Happy

These photos all depict something that makes me happy.  First of all, photography makes me happy.  Editing and creating photos makes me happy.  The photos are in no specific order, but family and grandchildren make my life very happy.  I love the water whether it be ocean, lake, river, stream or even the bathtub.  I love taking photos of animals, gardens and nature in general.  It takes me outside of myself and stills my mind.  I love travel and absorbing new sights, sounds and knowledge. I also love books, knitting and quilting, but I will save those for another time.

This has been fun learning to use the gallery skills.  I will be sure and try it again.  For more Happy photos go here.
