ON A GRAY BLAH DAY



A dear friend of mine gave me some lemons right from her tree.
Don't they look yummy?

The day is so dull and drab that I thought I would try a few shots
in the house.

Sometimes "Sunny California" is as close as one's kitchen counter.

Enlarging the photos will definitely show more detail.




Now, I know that this photo is over sharpened
but I kind of like the results.
It definitely shows the cell structure of the leaves.




Gazing out the window at my Camelias which have had frost bite
for the last two weeks.
There is some color left inspite of our cold snap.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for looking.

The color of a lemon is the perfect yellow. I hope you find more photographic treasures in your home; I know you will!

Wish I was really looking out your window.

That leaf is really cool with all it's veins..

It was rainy today, but I visited Elizabeth, and that was a spot of Sunshine!

Good happy weekend to you Sue!

Thanks for including us in your prayers! They make a difference. I am finding the list of blogs on my Blogger dashboard that I follow has become a helpful prayer list, and your blog was one of the first I started following when I was a fledgling blogger.

I love to photograph lemons. There is just something about them and their beautiful cheerful yellow color, and of course their intoxicating scent. Beautiful set of images.

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the
head. The problem is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
I am very happy I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.
