With some free time and a lot more motivation, this week’s photo snapping was fairly smooth. In addition to an easier week, I reminded myself that this is supposed to be an enjoyable project and a way to improve my skills. Not a chore. And self said “You’re right! Let’s have fun.” Sometimes I have to have pep talks with self, especially when it spins a little out of control.
Well, with the weather being so wonderfully mild I (together with self) decided to step out into the back yard. Below are some of the things I (and self) captured.
This week's photo theme: In The Yard

After The Rain
“Everything looks so fresh after a rainfall.”
What I've learned this week:
Some weeks are better than others.
The sounds and smells and sights of nature are food for the soul.
Photography is a form of meditation for me.
Overcast days are wonderful for outdoor photography.
And so week eleven, which was quite enjoyable, comes to an end. A terrific weekend to all blogging friends!
