Mono Monday Plus #38 (MM # 52) One Year Anniversary

A Gator in the Carolina swamps?   Well, not this particular Gator, at this time.  He has, however, been known to haunt these waters from time to time.
Over the past year, I've learned so much from Gary and others here.  Layers drove me crazy and still do.  LOL  But, I have conquered to a degree.  Still working on it.
Next on the list, dodge and burn.
This is a quick attempt at a post for this weeks MM.   It's never a good idea to start a photo project right before work.  LOL  Now, I've got to get it in gear and get ready.
You all have a great day and I look forward to seeing more of the entries tonight.
In words of the Gator...."Peace Out".

Pictures to Words # 12 ~ Haiku




in the spring rain, a dance
love begins, never to end
i take the chance again


I haven't participated here in a while but, when I saw this photo, I instantly fell in love with it.

Haiku is something new for me.  I've never tried to write it.   I looked it up.  Read a little about it then, found a syllable counter.  LOL

That said, here is my first attempt.  I changed it around a few times.  Never was really satisfied or sure if I was doing this right.

Emmm once told me to go with my first thoughts so, here it is.  Any and all advice is welcome.  As is what I did wrong or what I didn't do.

Mono Moday Plus #34 (MM #48)

One of the things I do to relax is play around with pictures.  Okay, so nothing new there.  My Dr.  seems to be of a different opionion.  She says this, she also including reading, stimulates the brain.  Who knew.  Anyway my MM for this week.  Just some pics I played with.  A little crop.  A layer and....Alyssa in the flame.  All I have for now.  I'm beat.  LONG day and tomorrow will be no different.   The picture of Alyssa had already been cropped and I had changed it to Sepia.  Changed to B&W after I put her in the flame.

Hope to get  to everyones page tomorrow IF I don't get stranded at work....ITS SNOWING  again.
