Swinging, Diamonds and OTHER Stuff



PicMonkey View of Diamonds in the tree tops as viewed from my swing
Jake ball game was in full swing so I parked myself in the swing, and with heels  on the ground, head tilted, s rocking the swing and staring up at the trees, the sun  behind the trees washed out the blue, but the pine needles and leaves looked like a million diamonds.

Grabbing my camera to capture the diamonds I realized it would not capture the diamonds, I aimed it at what I could see from the swing and fixed it  just for YOU.


I snapped !     In front of me


I snapped! the dog at my feet, not dead but dead to the world...


Stood up and Snapped! at the Holly Hocks.



TO BE CONTINUED...

Diamonds are a girl's best friend!
Love your spontaneous photos. I wish my brain worked that way. I know I am forever missing Life's Diamonds.

Now I want to see what else you snapped, the suspense is building. The diamonds in the trees are GORGEOUS!!!!!!! They are also tree fairies made from star dust. They make my heart sing...makes me remember that old Beatles song "Snapper In The Trees With Diamonds" or some such thing.

Pretty, pretty diamonds in the sky. Love what you did with this shot.
The MadSnapper doesn't have to travel for photos she just looks around and there they are.
