I've been framed!

After 6 years I finally decided to hang some photos on the wall. I thought I would share the ones I added to a triple 4x6 frame in my bathroom. I thought they might add a little color and beauty to my life as I get ready for work in the morning.

The first photo was taken in Osaka, Japan. It is the plum orchard next to Osaka Castle. I remember how haunting and beautiful the blossoms smelled that day. I wish I could bottle the elusive scent of the plum blossoms to remind me of the loveliness in the world.

This was taken at Man Mo temple in Hong Kong. I love the repetition of pattern and color here and the photo soothes me and reminds me of a lovely day of sightseeing.

This fragile beauty is a hibiscus blossom from Tahiti. I love how delicate and serene this singular flower is. It reminds me to enjoy the beauty around me and to be at peace in the moment.

I hope you enjoyed this small break in your day and the world photo tour I have given you! Enjoy a beautiful day.

I like your pictures, especially the one of the incense coils in the temple in Hong Kong. I remember how peaceful it was in those temples compared to the hustle and bustle on the streets.

The plum blossoms are gorgeous! I love hibiscus! We are lucky to have many varieties of hibiscus in Florida.
Take 10 minutes of solitude for you today. I did yesterday! Wow, what a difference it made in my day!

Hi again, Lianne! Just wanted to stop by and say "Hi!" Hope you and yours are doing well! :-)

Wonderful photos, and what a great idea to put them somewhere you'll see them every day. I should follow your lead, since I went digital I just don't have prints, I like the idea of assembling photos from different trips based on a single theme - cool!
