It’s been a while since I have posted.

My heart still has me in a place where I just can’t focus on much yet…

So I broke out my camera and took a glorious shot of a rose and played with it a bit.

Antique look…

Isn’t this cool?  Same shot just making it look like there is a light behind the rose.  Ummm

Then just wee bit of Pink ( btw don’t for get to stop by Beverly’s Pink Saturday)

What was it that Shakespeare said?

A Rose by any other name would smell as sweet?

Well, a rose by any other color still is a beauty to behold.

TTFN~~ Claudia

    I love this post. You and I must be kindred spirits because I have been shooting roses this week, too. I have been playing with PSE9 and creating different treatments….FUN! I have been thinking about posting them for Mosaic Monday. Your shots are lovely. Keep that camera out.

  9. Hi Claudia Sweetie…
    Oh what a beautiful share this evening. I love it when you play with
    that beautiful camera lens of yours. You create the most beautiful
    piece of art. Yes a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

    I love the rose that is showing God’s light through it? He is calling us
    home one by one. I love that one most of all. HUGS sweetie…HUGS.

    Oh my precious Claudia, I continue to keep you in my prayers. I know
    that your wounds are still raw. Give it time sweetie. Time heals all wounds.

    We will talk soon. You are SO loved sweet girl. So loved. Have a glorious
    weekend. Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

    Happy PS ~
    now can I learn to play like you?

  16. Claudie says:

    I’ve missed you too my friend. Things just aren’t the same are they?
    I didn’t even see your comment till I commented on my own post. What’s up with that? I have NO IDEA.
    How can a rose look so beautiful? Well, cuz you are behind the lens, that’s why.
    We should talk on the phone soon please.
    Love You
    Love Me

  17. Angie says:

    Very pretty.  I am sorry your heart still hurting.  I think this will always be there just in a different way.  Here is praying that the hurt subsides and things can go back to some kind of normal.

    Isn’t it fun to play with the photos? Nice effects.

  19. Kathy says:

    I am amazed at what can be done through photo editing – fantastic – love the way the rose unfurls from the center – Happy Pink Saturday,

  20. LaVoice says:

    I am glad you felt like letting us stop and smell the roses with you today.  A great job.

  21. wendy says:

    every single shot is so beautiful.  We will have to make you in charge of getting the BEST photos at Claudie’s place this summer.
    Maybe you can work you “trickery” on me, and make me look REALLY good (tee.hee)

    just beautiful!!!

  23. Hi Claudia,
    I’ve been out of the loop lately.
    I’m so so sorry to hear about
    you losing your sister. My heart
    goes out to you and your family
    in this difficult time.
    I love playing in my editing’s like magic,
    isn’t it?

    Hugs and Happy Pink,
    Stephanie ♥

  24. Hi Claudia,
    Thinking of you this morning.  Hope that you are enjoying some sunshine.  It’s sunny here and cold, but at least the sun is out.

    Happy Friday.


  25. Mary says:

    I love playing with images too!  Love your pink!
    Happy Pink

    bee blessed

    Beautiful blog pictures. I read a bit about you losing  your sister, I fully understand.  My sister and I have had a ‘broken’ relationship now for over a year she said some very mean things about me and I wrote her and said ‘You need to apologize so we can heal our hearts’. She wont do it.
    It has been a grief so deep and so hurtful. I am sorry for you.
    take care and God bless you.
