Higlights of My Week {iPhoneography}

Tulip leaves have the most beautiful textures and shapes. I admire the oval and graceful form of tulip flowers ... This tulip in the morning light caught my eyes.
I have used the following Apps in editing this snapshot  Handy Photo, Snapseed and Mextures.

The sound of rain has lulled us to sleep in the evenings. The few times I have been outdoors, I've admired the small raindrops resting on the leaves. According to the weather forecast the rainy clouds continue to hover above us this coming weekend as well.

It's getting dark earlier in the afternoons. I noticed the texture of the tiles in our landry room, as the light from the window fell to the dark room.

"In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present."
Francis Bacon

Textures Mixed by Kim Klassen and Coffee Break by Nancy Clayes.

An unexpected moment with a friend highlighted my week ... Cathing up, coffee and danish wienerbrød , with candles to lighten up the afternoon.

Rest and medicin has helped my neck to recover, the number of good days outnumbers the bad days now!

... Wishing you a happy and relaxed weekend,

  11. I love the light on the floor of your laundry room but my favourite is the candlestick. I hope you continue to feel better. Have a great weekend

  12. Hi Nina! I am so glad that your neck is getting better. I know you are doing everything the doctor tells you. And maybe a visit from a friend is the best medicine of all?

    That tile photo is just beautiful. I wonder if you saw it, and went running for your camera? Or maybe your camera is always with you. Either way, I really enjoyed it.
    You are always in my prayers, my friend. Have a good, relaxing weekend!

  14. Glad to hear you are feeling better. I am plagued with neck pain ... arthritis. Some days the pain is just awful.
    I just love that photo!!! Wow! Wow! Wow!

  15. Beautiful shots that are so dark, and I love the scripture you chose with this.. Oh and this scripture is soooooo true. How can we shine the light, or even see it without having seen the darkness.

  16. ooppppps, see that is not scripture, but a quote Francis Bacon... well perfect anyway. sure there must be a similar scripture. LOL

  17. Wow! Perfection...such beautiful shots. I'm signing up for your still life photography class. I hope it will be useful with an iPhone!
