Character and wisdom are sculpted over time. They come with loss, lessons, and triumphs. They come after doubts, second guesses, and exploring unknowns. If there were a definitive path to happiness and success, everyone would be on it. Your best stories will come from overcoming your greatest struggles. So keep standing, keep learning, and keep living. And, most importantly keep loving and helping people along the path. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• . .

Beauty without virtue is like a rose without scent. . . Playing with darker tones on this shot. >> Slide to see before and after edit. I’m not one that edits much. When I take a photo I try to capture it naturally. Maybe, I’m old school and learned to shoot that way. Or, maybe I just need to learn how to be a creative editor. .

•Babcock State Park• . This was the year that I’d hoped to capture the brilliant autumn foliage and the smooth as silk water falls at the Gristmill. I drove 2+ hours to get there with high hopes. As soon as I arrived I could see the vibrant colors glowing as the sun peeped through stormy clouds. The rain subsided in perfect timing . I snapped a few quick photos before heading out to the flat rock I wanted to set my tripod on for some long exposure shots. I was excited and overly prepared with all my gear and tripod in hand. I stepped over 3 rock, one more step to my flat rock. The last step, my foot slipped and backwards I fall into the water.. with all my gear! So, I don’t have those dreamy LE shots that I hoped to capture, but I’m beyond thankful to say that my cameras still work. . .

If you’re not being treated with love and respect, check your price tag. Perhaps you subconsciously marked yourself down. Because it’s YOU who tells others what you’re worth by showing them what you are willing to accept for your time and attention. So get off the clearance rack. If you don’t value yourself, no one else will either. . . Have a wonderful day, friends!

Lately, it seems I spend more time looking through my photos and find nothing that inspires me to share. I literally have thousands of photos that I’ve never posted, that I could share, but lack the creative inspiration. Maybe it’s just me, maybe it’s the continual bans, hacked accounts, and all the other things that seem to happen lately. What do you do when you’re feeling discouraged or lack a creative vibe? I honestly don’t like feeling this way. . . . On a positive note, I hope you have a blessed new week! I appreciate all of you and your kind support. . . #ig_eternity #macro_creative_pictures #angelsandflowers_ #shared_colored_moments #ig_fotografdiyari #ourcolordays #the_gallery_of_magic #allkindsofmagic #featured macros #vzcomacro #nature_worldwide_miracles #global_creatives #macro_vision #magical_shotz #ig_myshot #everything_edited #happy_life_captures #ethereal_moods #blissfulphotoart #_thislovelylife_ #still_life_nature #moods_in_frame #macro_mextures #mode_emotive #dreamland_arts_of_nature #atdiff_moods #zonephotographer #bns_flowers #tv_flowers #allbeauty_addiction

When we spend time cultivating beauty within us, it will shine through everything we do. True beauty isn’t determined by an outward appearance, but is defined by who we are. . ⋙⋙⋙⋙⋙⋙♡⋘⋘⋘⋘⋘⋘ .

Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity... it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. ꕥ•••••••••••••••••••ꕥ•••••••••••••••••••ꕥ .

•ᗰOᑎᗩᖇᑕᕼ ᗷᑌTTEᖇᖴᒪY• . This little beauty was my last butterfly of the season. I found her as an egg on milkweed that I collected for what I thought was the last caterpillars. There was 2 eggs and I had to decide what to do. Should I leave the eggs out of the cage and let nature take its course, or raise them safely and release late into the season for migration to Mexico. You can see my decision. The 2 eggs grew through caterpillar stages and formed their chrysalis before the weather turned cold. I had to bring them into the house for the last stage. The first emerged was a male, his wings were crinkled and deformed, did not survive. The next day, this beautiful female emerged. She was perfect. I tried to release her on 3 separate days. The temperature was in upper 50’s degrees, but she did not move from the flower. Monarchs can not survive cold weather, they migrate to Mexico, unlike all other butterflies. She lived inside the house for a week. I brought flowers with pollen inside and made sugar water, fruit juice and smashed bananas for her. She sat on my finger to drink. She practiced flying around the house. My family told me I had a pet butterfly. Finally, when the temperate was in the 70’s, on my forth attempt to release her she flew! I watched her, with a tear in my eye, fly above the house in big circles then to the top of the trees. I hope she makes it to Mexico. She’s a surviver, I believe she will make it. ꕥ•••••••••••••••••••ꕥ•••••••••••••••••••ꕥ . Have a blessed weekend, my friends! . .
