In Her Element

Uploaded: March 04, 2010


Monnie has had considerable success with her beautiful images of flowers, and since yesterday she posted a photo of me with one of my beloved lighthouses, I thought it appropriate that today I post a photo of her "doing her thing." This was taken last spring in Youngstown, Ohio's Mill Creek Park, one of her favorite area locations for photographing flowers.
