WW: Something From Nothing


Cattails. Photobucket

Weeds. Photobucket

Overgrown brush. Photobucket

Barren fields. Photobucket

Overlooked landscapes...Photobucket But when captured through the eye of my camera, these otherwise unsightly, unappreciated scenes have a beauty all their own.

LEAP INTO SPRING
Just a reminder that the Leap into Spring Photo Challenge Finale is open through Friday, May 18th 11:59pm CST. Submit your favorite spring photos to be entered into the drawing. All are welcome regardless of experience, camera equipment and whether or not you’re experiencing spring at the moment. We have an awesome lineup of prizes! 5 copies of Topaz Adjust, subscriptions to This Life, a photo book from Adoramapix, a design pack from Life-n-Reflection, a print from Veronica Armstrong Photography, and a camera strap cover from Forshee Designs, to name a few.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate you taking the time to leave kind, thoughtful comments and link up here at Project Alicia.

Now, without further ado... let's get this WW party started. Just grab a photo and link up below! And if you'd like to connect with other WW participants, click HERE.

  30. Nothing speaks love like a handful of weeds from a child on a spring or summer day.

    Will this be your first full summer in South Carolina? I can't wait to see what you capture with your lens. You may even be able to capture the heat waves coming from the ground on an especially hot day. ;)
