Cosmos in the evening and a brief intermission

I’m stepping away and taking a couple of days off from my posts here on the Chronicles blog. Oh, I’ll be back, rest assured, and until I return, I’ll be posting daily on my photo blog, A Picture A Day. No worries, k? I’m just awfully busy at the moment.

As always, thank you for your inspiring comments. It has been wonderful having you here and sharing my photography with you. One of the nicest things I’ve heard lately is about a woman who is battling breast cancer that was led here to my site by her mother-in-law as a place to feel peaceful. That touched my heart.

Your comments to me and e-mails continue to convince me that beginning this blog was the right thing to do. (I sometimes wonder, that’s all).

And now, as Ahnold so aptly put it, “I’ll be back.” Until then, my friends . . .

and how did you get that shot? aperature priority? full manual? a mask? I'm intrigued.

Be well on your break. Thank you for your kind words, your acceptance, and your foresight into me.

Thanks, everyone. And in answer to Erin (Woman in a Window), I shot this late afternoon with my macro lens on the auto dial, landscape setting. Rusty Cage from TRA at about 50%. Sharpened the center flower first.
