Just an old bottle and some wildflowers...

(edited with Kim Klassen's hughes texture, hard light, 30% opacity)

Last week, on our getaway to the cabin on the river,
I bought this old bottle, embossed with the word Glasgow, at an antique store in a nearby beach town.
I couldn't resist adding it to my collection of old aqua colored bottles
 since my husband's grandmother was from Glasgow, Scotland.

I collected some wildflowers by the river and did a little still life photography on the back deck of the cabin.

Our time away was so restful, relaxing and peaceful.
I feel like these photos capture that feeling.

    1. Jody, I am a very visual person and can usually visualize in my mind if something is going to look right or not. I know it's a God gift in my life and I think Him for making me this way!
