This Photo Phriday (last time I'm spelling it wrong) thing is just the kick in the pants I needed. Thursday it was sort of cold out and threatening to rain and I still did not have a batch of good photos for today's post because I was lazy the rest of the week - the very thing I am trying to avoid. So I seized the little bit of sunshine that I had and enjoyed shooting the thing out front that is probably to blame for my allergy issues. I'll forgive it because those little dainty white petals are dee-lish and also because I have Claritin.
Most of what I'm posting today is dead flowers. They are everywhere and I love them, always have, but have never had so many to choose from. Back in Florida nothing really dries up and turns brown. Green is certainly nice and soothing, but there is just something about the crunchy, golden, details in dead vegetation.
I could shoot nothing but flowers all day long, but they are not good practice for Kenya and the sort of themes we are looking to capture for EMI. However, they were a great subject for practicing some new editing techniques. That last one of the cactus is how it came straight out of the can (save for the removal of chromatic aberration).

Here is where we share our daily experiences of how God is using our life in the US and abroad with eMi to draw us closer and to make Himself known.
