As you view these images, I am off to see my parents for some Mother’s Day / Father’s Day celebrating.
Following that, I’ll participate in a Saturday Board Meeting for the Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners.
Then I’ll get to spend the evening with a long time friend and fellow photographer.
And hopefully, all of that work and play will be followed by a belated birthday celebration with my sister.
These images were taken during an evening with friends last week. Life, and all it’s gifts and challenges, has prevented this group of women from gathering lately. On Friday, we finally got to sit around the fire, enjoy delicious food and drink, and the company of folks who know you well and love you despite your, shall we call them, less attractive, traits.
Enjoy the weekend, everyone! I’ll catch up with you when I get back.
Wonderful images Laurie 🙂 The first image looks 3D !
You’ll be proud of me, Joe! I spend one evening while out of town, learning more about my camera, DOF, F-stops, and Aperture.
Next I need to figure out Shutter Speed.
I really am bothered that my photos are based on eye and luck, and am happy about learning the technical part.
I am proud of you and here is a head start on shutter speed 😀 – https://thevisualchronicle.com/2014/09/05/you-asked-for-it-shutter-speed/
Have an awesome weekend, Laurie!
It was wonderful! Lots of photos to process 🙂
So beautiful Laurie. Like you, I am spending the weekend with a group of girls who have been getting together for 25 years. How wonderful it is to chill with these gals! Enjoy!
Lynn, I hope you had a wonderful time with your longtime friends.
What a joy!
I sure did! Just what the doctor ordered😉
Beautiful images, Laurie, and a lovely story too! Enjoy your time away – it sounds fabulous!
It was such a great time away … now to process all the images, and catch up on everyone elses blogs!
Don’t worry about catching up with me – I’ve got unanswered comments from February! Yikes 😱 Glad you had such a great time 🙂
Have a great time and I love the photos!
I’m glad you liked the photos. It was a great, productive weekend
Lovely images…….especially the violas. Enjoy!!!!!
Thank you, Doreen. I’ll have time to process images as I’ve heard we are in for continued rain for awhile …
Have a good weekend, Laurie!
It was so good to see my parents, sister, friends, and for the meeting to be productive and not a waste of time 🙂
Hope to catch up with everyone this coming weekend.
Love the bike shot.
Hope to catch up with your blog this coming weekend. Tomorrow is the Ride of Silence, the 9th Annual in my part of the world. Fingers crossed: no rain!
What gorgeous pics, Laurie. I’m in love with those flowers and feel like I could reach out and touch one.
I’m so happy to read that you’ll be spending time with your folks, followed by other good friends. I know you’ll savor each moment as you always do. xo
The time with my folks was wonderful and precious. I’m so fortunate to have them, still.
Visits with friends, my sister, and a productive meeting rounded out the weekend.
I need to look back to remember when our last skype session was.
I’d love to find time to catch up!
Looks like a fabulous time! Great pictures! The bicycle is so cool! Thank you for sharing. 🙂

Thank you, Seonaid! It was a great trip!
Hope to catch up with you this coming weekend.
Those photos are perfect for capturing the sense of calm and relaxation of your time with friends. I especially like the one with the drink and the campfire–that image occurs around here, too!
Thank you, Kerry. I’m glad the images conveyed the mood. Happiness!
I’m with Kerry on this one so I’ll save my words. 🙂 Have a wonderfilled and relaxing week. Hugs.
Oh, what a special time to sit around a fire and fellowship with friends!
Perfectly said, Laurie!
Birthday wishes to you Laurie!!!
