Besides writing, photography is another dream of mine.
I love taking photos of nature.
So when I awoke one-morning last month to the sound of rain outside my window, I knew what I had to do. Get my trusty phone and head on outdoors.
I began taking pictures of various flowers with the rain drips caught on their petals.
These lilies looked especially beautiful like diamonds sparkled about, enhancing their natural beauty.
So so lovely.
Zoomed in for a close-up or two.
Beauty created for me and you.
