New Things...

I love learning new things about people I've known for awhile. It's like a pleasant little surprise when they share something unknown about themselves. Take yesterday for instance. My friend Toni sent me a little email with some beautiful photographs. "Did you take these", I asked. "Yes", she replied. I had to oooo and aaawww for awhile. Then I learned that she really loves photography and just doesn't take pictures like she used to. However, the other night, she and a friend went out doing just that. I asked her to share some more of them with me so I can share with my blogger buddies. Here is what she sent me tonight.

This is one of her favorites with the old windmill and barn...


More old barns...

I think she was pretending to be a kitty in the grass in this one, I love it...


The Aquinnas Cliffs and Lighthouse...
This one is my favorite. It reminds me of the drives my dad used to take me and my mom on when I was a little girl...

I asked Toni to send me more pictures periodically to brighten up my blog. I sure hope she continues to do so...plus I have also encourage her to start her own Photo Blog. Thank you Toni!!

Your friend's photography is just beautiful! It's really hard to pick a favorite. I really like that bridge though. That really stands out! Have a great rest of the weekend!
