weekly winners: august 3–9

Bear with me today folks. I shot over 300 pictures last week and had a hard time winnowing them down to just a handful of favorites. Trust me when I say there are many more than this in my library asking to be shown to the world. Be thankful that I'm not making you look at every single one of them. The shots are shown in chronological order this week. Enjoy!

That zinnia shot as a sunrise is really creative. Nice! :)

Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) said...

You have some really beautiful shots here, but my heart is with the first one. Just darling. :-)

maggie's mind said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous nature shots, but that first one is my favorite because of how precious the moment being captured is.

Rachel said...

Absolutely wonderful set of shots! I love the first one though, it is such a treasured moment!

lotus—He really adores G-tot too.

maggie—Thanks so much.

rachel—I have several from that day. I just loved the way the two of them looked in this one.

The pictures you chose were great. I love the second amazing.

texasholly—I think that's my favorite too. It's hard to believe that it was shot during the day in the backyard. The green in the right hand corner almost looks black.

tiff said...

I love the butterfly photos but Mr Silly stole my heart.

secret agent mama said...

Your boy is adorable (beyond adorable), and your macros are awesome!

Cruel Shoes said...

Oh, thank you for the unfurled beauty of the phalanges!! :) Your camera seriously does some amazing stuff, and you continue to have a GREAT eye for capturing beauty. Well played.

All great shots this week! My faves are sleepy boy, puppet show & Mr. Silly~he's just adorable! The nature ones are awesome too~my fave nature ones are white cosmos, butterfly house & quick sip.

There's 2 objects I'm SO wanting to photograph but haven't been able to yet. And those are a pretty butterfly & a dragonfly. I WILL eventually though ;)

tiff—I love that Mr. Silly shirt. Every time G-tot wears it he points at the little guy and laughs.

secret agent mama—Thanks. I'm looking at getting a real macro lens for my birthday.

cruel shoes—I love your comments. They always make me feel good.

connie—If you have a Butterfly House in your area you must go to it. There are literally hundreds of them flying around. It's impossible not to capture a shot or two.
