Doreen of Little Pockets of Happiness chose the theme Celebrate Life! for this week's challenge.
One definition of celebrate: to mark a happy occasion by engaging in some pleasurable activity.
It gives me great pleasure to take photos of things that give me pleasure to look at :-)
I dont' say often "yuck a bug!" because I find beauty in them too. This assassin bug is very colorful upon the azalea petal with lot of pollen abounding... I celebrated its beauty too.
I like the subtle color of a small Orchard Spider. I watch the miracle of it spinning its web and I celebrate.
Frank gave me a gift this week.. no special occasion. A gift that he knows will bring me great pleasure. A step-up ring so I can use the filters for my Sony f717 camera with my Sony A700 camera. I celebrate Our Love.
(this is the only photo I took this week for the shoot-out, the rest of the photos are from my archives)
I celebrate food. Baked sweet potatoes are so nutritious and taste so yummy! (don't you wish you could capture the odors of some things)
The color of a tomato. I love tomatoes! My Mama says that I should be about made of them because I've eaten so many. I celebrate my taste for them and the beauty they are for the eyes.
I have a sweet tooth. So I celebrate a time I made a Pecan Carrot Cake.
Who can help but celebrate the birth of an animal be it bird...
or Calf and Pigs
I celebrated when I saw a Dad playing with his baby girl....
I celebrated when a dog gave a toddler a sweet kiss behind the ear.
I celebrate Family even when it is a hot August day and it is 113° outside and not much cooler inside the church social hall. Amazing how fast family can eat and visit when it is hot.
Tomorrow I will celebrate our countries birth at home quietly thinking about the great things about our country.
