Friendship and Fotos

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of going out on a photography ride with a good friend of mine and fellow photographer. It's always a pleasure to have someone to chat with as we look for interesting sights.

Even before we left her house, I found some beauty.


The lovely Iris had a few raindrops on it, adding to its' stately beauty.

We wandered around the backroads north of Morden.You just never know when that perfect scene will pop into view and backroads are the very best for this.
We found this road, obviously not very well travelled, but this scene caught my attention.


A little further down another road we saw this little old church pointing its' steeple toward that blue Manitoba sky.

Later that same day, I went out in hopes of a pretty sunset. This may not be spectacular but it is still pretty to me.The end of a fun day, spent with a good friend.

 Something To Think About:
I must desire friendship with God more than anything else.

Oooh that road not traveled looks lovely and I too enjoy taking those roads and expecting exciting new things.
I think your sunset is quite nice.

Your "something to think about" is so very true.

Looks like such a pleasant place to go looking for photos. God gives us so much to see if we just look.

Spectacular iris shot.
I love going on backroads with someone who wants to find the hidden treasures as much as me.
Love the lonely road shot too.

i get your meaning at the end ... but i would love a good friend that i can see in person. i've not had a close friend in years. i hear of folks saying their husband is their best friend ... i love my hubby but he doesn't enjoy the hobbies i love and that makes me wish for some1 to do those hobbies ... shopping, movies, coffee, exercise, music, etc. i love iris blooms, i did a painting as a teenager that my Mom hung up of several iris blooms. my Mom is that type of Mom hanging our art work. i think my brother has some of his work as well. for me .. i have not done art in years ... i wanna do it again ...but never take the time to get into it again??! u have a nice rest of your week, sure flew by. take care.
