Back to Dogwood

Despite lung explosion, mother’s need for assistance while downsizing, and brother’s need for support, I have somehow managed to keep up with the 52 week Dogwood Challenge.  In fact I shot two weeks ahead.  But this week the subject of ELDERLY  is going to stump me.  My Mom has not been in the mood to have her picture taken and I don’t have a wide circle of elderly friends.  Well since I am elderly myself, I guess I do, but not the kind of elderly that has been appearing on the challenge.

So I shot some fun minimalisms.

Finally two of my favorite trees have lost their limbs….so sad.  But one of my favorite sycamores stands out among its neighbors….love viewing this tree from my dock.

It is always a photo op when my niece drops by with her run around girl Maddie and her husband Sean.  I love trying to catch them looking good.  This time around I had some fun in photoshop….learning something new.
