photoblog image Watery Wednesday

Watery Wednesday

A cropped version of this shot is below.

 

Thank you for comments yesterday. I visited each blog and saw your fine photos but had no time to comment.  It was one of those fun-filled (groan...) days off that was planned to the hilt with the dreaded trip to town. Errands and appointments are scheduled for the same day and carried out to plan. It coincided with the first day of school and the first day of a major road construction project halfway between home and my work, and town. The road realignment will last all fall and affect my commute meaning I will have to leave for work earlier.  Anyway, I survived the day, poorer but pleased, and glad it's over till next time.

 

The maxim that women love shopping is not true in all cases, believe me.

This is exquisite, Mary, and there is even a tiny reflection in the raindrop!
Mary MacADNski: The one tiny spot in focus, Lisl.

I like the bottom image
Mary MacADNski: The top one required so much work to erase dust and the second one took a nano second to do so I like it too!
wow, both are amazing shots, Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Thanks very much. It was wonderful to find these on the deck one morning.
Good to know that you survived the manic day Mary, and I do know that not all women are shopaholics.
Mary MacADNski: The day was not so bad really except for the shopping part. I had a delightful lunch with friends and visited another friend. I am shopping for a light fixture for the kitchen. Still haven't decided what I want.
Both images are delightful macros, Mary. WELL DONE! And, yes, not all women are shopaholics!!!
Mary MacADNski: I uploaded some men shopping cartoons for later in the week that I recieved in email the same day as this post.
Very nicely cropped Mary! Well done indeed.

Unlike Mr C Phillips(no relation) I also hate shopping unless I do it on the internet

Like the picture Mary
Mary MacADNski: I did all my christmas shopping on the internet last year. Glad you like the picture.
Super pair of images, especially those water droplets on the lower picture.
Mary MacADNski: That drop needed to be seen.

I'm pleased that it is not just me that only shops out of die necessarily rather than for pleasure. I have some very odd friends just like to wander around the shops...UGGHHH!!! I love the colour of your flower and the water drops add to the image.
Mary MacADNski: I was shopping for a new kitchen lighting fixture, not craft shop browsing. Even I don't mind a bit of art or craft shopping.

Some women I know, doesn't like shopping for groceries and other necessities, but can spend a morning going through boutiques and leisuring at a coffee shop. Mind you I like a coffee shop myself smile

I like the cropped version.
Mary MacADNski: I was shopping for a lighting fixture, not nearly boutique shopping. I can't tell you the last time I was in a coffee shop.
Lovely abstract, macros, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: They were lovely to see on a Saturday morn with time to pick up the camera.

Beautiful blooms and pictures Mary.

As for women loving shopping, I SO agree with you, the only shopping I really enjoy is time spent in a book shop smile
Mary MacADNski: I grew lots of asters from seed. They are wonderful this year. I do love bookstores myself.
Wonderful colour!
Mary MacADNski: I have a whole range of purple.
