Challenge for Facebook 365 "reflection"
It was raining so hard so I had to come up with something indoors.

The reflection is a piece of acrylic that I bought at the hardware store.

A lot of my friends have been talking about "time" and the lack there of. I can totally relate. I understand. There are days when I not only "don't have the time" I don't have the energy. Sitting around chatting and watching TV is a luxury I don't really have anymore. However, this project has and continues to move me. Study, learn and try harder. My art has grown and so if I have to give up some TV time to continue learning this art - then so be it because I'm still fascinated with this craft.

Beautiful lily. I love the color and the detail.

Great photos! That macro lily is wonderful, and I love your reflection photo. I'm going to try my reflection one again today - Ken's going to glue my mirror back into the frame for me. :)

I completely agree with you on the time thing. I don't have much time for chatting or Facebook these days, but I try to make time for photography each day. Oh, and those small people. Apparently they need my time too. :-)

Hey, speaking of chatting - I have Skype now - it's just another way to get in touch with me if you need/want to.

The details on the macro shot is amazing and I like the subtle reflection of the bear in the second shot.

Thanks for your comments on Time in my blog post - I guess I'm not the only one to spend too much time on this project ;)

the intense red and the details here make this a real eye catcher.

Congratulations on getting your shot chosen for the DailyQi! Looks like hard work and dedication is paying off. I think that's worth missing a little television. :)
