(Click any photo to enlarge.) ***Scroll down to see my offer for Red Cross donations.*** Let me pose for you! Lotus face up It's hard to stay away from Lilypons.  My friend Norma wanted to go there today, and I learned yesterday that a group of Frederick Plein Air painters were going to be there, so I agreed to go back.  I also broke my vow to walk during this heat in either early morning, in shady places, or in the evening, but late morning is when the lilies and lotus are open, so off we went. The Pink House/Shop I showed Norma all the "good" places to get closeups of lotus, reflections of water lilies, etc.  The painters arrived after 10 a.m., seeking out shady spots to set up their canvases, but there were few to choose from that also had the views they wanted to capture. Fish in the bubbles I spent some time photographing in the fish tanks, after doing some walking around the property.  It was hot, but seeking out shady spots every now and then helped. Something's Fishy Again, no words are really needed to describe walking around Lilypons, but the water lilies and lotus are at their peaks of beauty right now, so I hope you will understand why I agreed to go back again...and again...and again...  Stay cool in this heat, friends! Abstract Fish and Bubbles Deb Lovelace Richardson Save the date!  Monday, September 2, will be the last day of my year long photo walk project, and I'm planning a big celebration walk with anyone who wants to join me!  September 2 is also Labor Day, so many of you will have the day off.  The walk will be in downtown Frederick, around 9 a.m., followed by a brunch.  More details will be posted on my blog as they get confirmed.  But mark your calendars, grab your cameras, put on your walking shoes, and join me for my final Daily Photo Walk.  Let's jam the streets of Frederick with photo walkers!  Click on any photo to enlarge it. ************************************************* Forward me by email any receipt for an online donation made to the Red Cross for disaster relief, and I will send you a 5x7 print of your choice from any of my daily photo walks or from my website.  Offer good until September 2, 2013.
