things that I think are beautiful

Since I got my new camera I haven't had a lot of chances to use it. But here are some photos I've taken over the last couple of months which might not necessarily be that great composition-wise but which I love to look at because I think they're beautiful, for various reasons.

Greenness.
Sun shining through water onto pebbles below.
Rice crackers in neat little piles.
One of my best friends.
Bark on a tree that looks like a cross.
A little guest in our home.
Swimming.
A bee in our garden.
Cows grazing the big mound of dirt that was left by builders down the road from my home.


Ordinary. Everyday. But I still think they're beautiful.

Wow, that looks to be a huge mound.

Greenness is choice.

I'm totally in love with the first one, the jumping swimmer and the cows. I want to frame the cows. No really. I do. How much would you charge me for the digital file?

Ooh, all so pretty! Especially love the wee snail sliming along that gorgeous blue---and I'm with lestes65 on those cows.

Also, in a somewhat related note that I've been meaning to leave for a while now: love your ever-changing blog banners. Each one as fantastic as the last.

Carry on, creativity!

I especially love the first picture and the one of the kid swimming!

You've made me realize how much I need a new camera.

Beautiful pics. My fave: the swimmer!

These ARE beautiful. Although I'm slightly worried about those cows, so close to the edge...

Thanks for reminding me that I'll enjoy my camera so much more if I take some actual pictures!

BEAUTIFUL. Is there anything more beautiful than the ordinary when you really think about it?
