IWSG - the thing you can do

i had a great post for today. and then i realized i just didn't have it in me to write it. but i hate to not do anything on IWSG day, so i had another idea. something easier. the one thing i can do.

i've been using my camera more, taking pictures of things that make me smile. right now it's all i can do for myself. anything else is too much effort. so here are more of the things that make me smile. maybe one of them will make you smile, or inspire you in some way.

if you can't write, or do the thing you love, do what you CAN do.

---notes on the photos - i love clouds and take pictures of them at every opportunity. the flowers are from pots i purchased a couple of weeks ago - fuscia blooms, pink baby's breath with petunias and dianthus, and a moss rose. the sunset is the view from my new front yard. (we hope to be in the new house in a few weeks.) the trees are on the back of our property. i thought the last one looked kind of mysterious.

Beautiful pictures - the two tree pictures are lovely. For some reason I can never make the colours look good on my camera. Even if someone else is stood next to me taking the exact same photo, theirs will look so much better.

Beautiful! Getting back into photography is one of those things on my Someday list. Glad you found something to do for yourself.

You're right. The last two would make great covers for mysteries or suspense. Beautiful photos, Michelle. Hi, I'm hopping over from Alex's IWSG. It's my first post. Can't believe I was so nervous. Anyhoo, I was sitting on my deck last week and happened to look up. I love clouds too. And there hovering over me was the most breathtaking cloud I'd ever seen. White, thick, white, did I mention white? And fat. And looking like an ice-cream on steroids. Delicious. I didn't take a picture. Dang!

Those pictures are gorgeous. I particularly liked the flowers.

The photos are amazing!
That's why I like practicing my guitar. If I can't write, I can create music instead.

Gorgeous photos...they would inspire poetry ;D
I do think sometimes we just need to follow what is tugging at our playful muse! So glad you did~

Great IWSG post! I think we all need a break from writing sometimes, and I can't think of a better way to channel unused creativity than photography.
