Hope you are having a nice week. Here are a few photos from various places that I have been to, including my little balcony.

Not much activity on my balcony, except the silent growth of plants in spring (yes, spring in Australia). We are having a lot of rain, so the succulents are placed under shelter, and  I have bought a new chilli plant. Each morning I look outside when get out of bed; excited at the prospect of seeing new flowers :). I love spring.

More photos next time.

I'm envious of your spring and new surprises on your balcony.

And even more curious as how you did that photo format? I love your macro photos and zeroing in like you've done is terrific.

No rain in Michigan. Sixty six degrees and sunny. So far so good for the middle of October.
I keep my fingers crossed.

@ LW Roth: I used the application, Adobe Illustrator. I guess if you have photoshop, it will do the job to. Thanks for visiting.

Wow, what a creative idea, they look amazing in circular motion. Fantastic details as well. Very cool.

It is fun to hear about your drawing as you cook. I am loving art this year, and yes refocusing is a good thing at times. You drawing and photo are wonderful.
