A Study in White

"After The Rain"


"Intimacy - Into Me See"



"Cascade over the garden gate"



"Come in ~ we've been waiting for you!"



My beautiful Mock Orange shrub loves to show off her pretty blossoms each summer. She's a delight in our garden. Her fragrance is sweet and her presence welcomes visitors as they come through the side gate.

This week Vee hosts her Notecard Party. The gentle rule is to select a theme, choose four photos we've posted in the past, and create a 'set' of notecards. Thanks, Vee, for the wonderful party -- I'm pleased to share this Study in White.

For some wonderful glimpses of extraordinary themes and photography, visit the Notecard Party -- I pretty certain you'll be glad you did.

Wishing you a beautiful day,
Brenda

  7. Ohhh, you've welcomed us in with that final photo. Love the related color and coherency of this study in white. Lovely, truly, and they'd make such a wonderful set of note cards.

    There are a few gals looking into the actual making up of their work as I type. I'm looking for something not too expensive. I don't want to pay more than I'd have to pay for a Hallmark card.

    Thanks for participating, Brenda!

  10. Last night I read chapter 42 of Moby-Dick,"The Whiteness of the Whale", which many consider to be the visionary center of all of Melville's writing. He wrote about how white is an intensifying agent, which can be used with powerful affect on our emotions.

    How fitting that you did "A Study in White" today! So lovely. Just visually stunning. Brenda, you have a gift. Thank you for sharing:)
