dream

Kim Klassen has given us another beautiful texture. This one is called dream which is also the theme for texture tuesday today.


I've been having a lot of fun with my macro lens lately. I was so happy when I spotted this little ladybug crawling around my crepe myrtle. And I thought the new dream texture was just right for this image.


My neighbor has a desperado sage that is just about to bloom. The tiny buds are so delicate. I added the silence texture this time.


And we've been having a lot of rain lately so I captured this drop of water just as it was about to fall. I used the golden texture - another favorite from Kim Klassen.

  3. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. Your photos are beautiful. I can't decide if I like the lady bug or water drop best. Your choice of textures is lovely on all three shots. A macro lens it at the top of my wish list.
