this or that thursday

First, I want to say thanks to everyone who's been linking up! Going through all the entries each week is so much fun. I am enjoying all of the amazing photography. Each week I am inspired to try to be a better photographer... and that's what this is all about.  


I have a few more to share this week from a recent walk through the woods on a beautiful new trail.


First I focused on the little curly vine...

Then I focused on the leaf behind.

I didn't want to leave out the green leaves.

And I found a few tiny wildflowers too.




It's time to link up what you want to share this week! There are just a few rules.
  • submit the url of your blog post, not your home page
  • link up a photo that was taken by you
  • include a link back to my blog in your post (you can use the button or a text link if you prefer)
  • visit a few other blogs and leave some comment love 
Okay, now let's see what you've been shooting!
