Sharing my vision with the World

Photography

This Moment

Manlookingatlake-Edit-2I took this picture in August of last year.  I had seen this man around the park several times.  Each time he captured my attention and each time I found myself slowing down and enjoying the moment.  I have not seen him around since last last year and hope he is well.  It is amazing how much we can learn from a total stranger if we just stop, observe, and listen.


Basking in the Sun

Turtles sunbathing

I was delighted to finally catch a glimpse of these turtles basking in the sun. When my mother-in-law was visiting last November she was fortunate to see them her first time visiting. I have been frequenting Lake Mirror for almost a year and had not caught them! So happy to see them. By the way, my mom was with me when I caught these. It was only her second time visiting the lake.
I am a turtle saver by nature. I have stopped traffic to save turtles. It’s in my blood.

Sunshine

These photographs were taken at the end of September 2012.  It seems like yesterday that these sun beauties were glistening and inviting.  I have missed you all and hope you enjoy!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy

The theme for this Week’s Photo Challenge is:  HAPPY!  This was the last picture I took of the evening.  Afterward, I just stopped and observed the pure joy this couple felt by feeding these ducks.  It is always such a pleasure to watch people giving.

Sunday Post: Delicious

Here are just a few of the delicious delights I love to indulge in.  I love natural foods for their extraordinary flavors.  Lemon-lime water quenches my thirst in an instant.  Definitely a necessity living in Florida.

Brown rice with veggies and shrimp is a weekly staple in my house.  It is a healthy meal full of flavor and deliciousness!  For lunch is normally a green salad topped with EVOO and dessert some fruit.

Thanks to one of my husbands co-worker’s we discovered Mangos last year.  I have been hooked ever since.  When they are in season I eat a few per week.  As you can see above, we enjoy sharing them as a snack together.  Last but not least, when watermelon season roles around I am in heaven!

I hope you have enjoyed this post!  To check out more DELICIOUS posts or to enter your own click on the dragon below!
