You Capture

Beth at Folding Laundry started a new weekly photo challenge. The first week was to take a picture without using a flash of something you love. You may all be tired of my flowers, but I'm really not. They are almost two weeks old and they still look great. This picture is of one that just opened on Monday. I'm hoping this challenge will make me a better photographer. I take tons of pictures, but that's not saying much. Here's my picture..

  16. Oh, I like flower pictures. There are some great groups on Flickr devoted entirely to flower photos. You should log on and put some of your photos there! You Capture is going to be such fun isn’t it? Head on over sometime soon to “Two Under Two. Whew!” for my super-fun-and-little-bit-silly giveaways! You could win a collection from Tiny Two’s Baby Animals line, or some chocolate covered pretzels! See you around the blogosphere!
