  1. You did a great job! Your photos were wonderful. I really should try this, I think it would improve my skills - of which I have very little! lol

  2. You are such a talented photographer! I should participate in a challenge like this. It would force me to up my photography game!

    1. That's why I do it; I need to push to practice photography.

  3. Great job! I had this idea that this year I would try to have books in all my pictures, but looking back at the themes makes me realize it will be hard!

    1. I decided to bow out this year and try other photography challenges instead.

  4. Oh my stars!! I didn't realize you participated in 52 Frames!! Gorgeous photos. You have such a good eye and such a lovely world to capture. I did 52 Frames a few years ago until my mama attempted suicide. And my life and hers fell apart in that one day's time.
    The black and white contrast of your son in the snow is so crisp. He looks like he is floating! The colors in the bouquet are vibrant and uplifting. Recognized the abstract pumpkin - great shot. The unusual angle and the sign are among my favorites. And your lake photography always takes my breath away.

    1. This was my second year participating and while I enjoyed it I have decided it's time to move on to other photo challenges. As long as I'm making a conscious effort to snap pictures I think I'm good. I can see why your life and your moms fell apart in one day's time; that must have been so hard to deal with.

  5. I love these photos, and I can see how your photography has evolved from last year. I love the rose pic and that chicken noodle soup pic looks like it could be in a magazine! Do you have a favorite?

    1. Aw, thank you! That is a fabulous compliment. My favorite is probably the fall foliage reflection. I am really taken with reflections lately.

  6. I love your photos. Many of them are breath taking.

  7. What a privileged glimpse that was to my eye from your photography. I loved the pink flower...I am into mandalas and many of the nature shots are stunning. The toasted cheese sandwich is indeed a comfort food for me too.

    Welcome back to Life This Week in 2021 on my blog each Monday. Thank you for linking up this week. Next week the optional prompt is 2/51 Announcement on Mon11 Jan. Hope to see you back here then too. Take care, Denyse.

  8. Wow! INCREDIBLE photography!

    Love them all especially "Two turtles".

    Happy Sunday!

  9. My, what a diverse post of lovely photos!

    I'm glad you are a part of 'My Corner of the World' this week!

  10. Wow, Joanne, you are so talented! That was super fun to scroll all the images. I love your self portrait and all the reflections on the lake photos. So many interesting interpretations of the themes as well. I really enjoyed that! Thank you.
