Doesn't God paint magnificent sunsets?

Under the Sea

Ever get a song stuck in your head?  Here is the one I had bouncing around in mine.

To celebrate "Art in Bloom" at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, volunteers created this cascade of real flowers flowing from a huge faucet. This beautifully fragrant sculpture was over ten feet tall!

Taking the Camera for a Walk

My family thinks I’m nutty about pictures, and they’re right! On this particular hike along Split Rock River, we braved fog, mosquitoes, high humidity, rocks, roots, mud, steep inclines, and shaky foot bridges. I used poles to help me when my knees were saying, “No!” We brought snacks, water, sunscreen and, of course, our cameras. I even lay on the ground at times to get the best shots. My, what I do for my photos!

I took a photo of Harry taking a photo, then Harry returned the favor.  We were both shooting the small but lovely White Falls on the Split Rock River, shown at the bottom of the page.

A Walk in the Woods

I stopped to take this picture of Harry as we hiked along the Split Rock River Trail in northern Minnesota in 2014.

The Joy of a Child

Evelyn (9 mo.) gave a huge smile as she settled into the backpack carrier on her daddy's back.

Family - Hand in Hand

When our extended family got together at Como Park, I was able to take these fun photos.

I submitted this page for the Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking Tuesday 8/4 Newsletter Challenge to create a layout with words on a picture. The phrase “hand in hand” is layered on top of the photo of three people walking. I also used the watermelon color scheme from Monday’s Random Challenge.
