I admire you for your writing dedication! The photographs are wonderful, I especially like the walkway into infinity... it's a terrific shot!
If this post is a sample of your writing odyssey, you're on a great course.
Lovely shots and captions. Your brief posts are as eloquent as your longer ones!
me again . . . just read the C.S. Lewis quote in your side bar as I was signing out. Wow - I love it!! Somehow I had never come across it and it really speaks to a certain period of my life. Thank you.
Thank you for sharing these wonderful shots. I have a special place in my heart for starfish and the sea. Love them all.
I'm so glad you're taking that leap! (my FB status earlier this week: It's never too late to shoot for the stars, regardless of who you are ~~~~ Nickelback ~~)Of frogs ---- did you know most girls have to kiss way too many frogs before they find their prince???xx

Hi Val! Great, I'm very impressed with the writing challenge you've taken up!! cool Dhow Jones, and stunning starfish...
Dear Val, I bow my head in admiration! And I LOVE your posts, your pictures and your words and your comments! I can sign each of the comments I read. I also LOVE the C.S.Lewis quote (love his books, too). This one is especially fitting to the Great Celebration that Germany is going to have tomorrow - the tumbling of the WALL. I`ll write my next post about it. Thank you so much for taking the time to write me such a lovely comment, too. And now run back and create more scenes and characters, and don`t forget to mention the jumping fish with newly stolen sunglasses on!

Yes,yes, nipping away! Froggy leap away and 'one star.. at a time'. Bravo, Val. Best of fun. I'm going to meander around here for awhile. xoxo.
A leap of faith. A leap of reason. Launched into the air, the uncertain balance makes for a dizzying feel, at once thrilling and satisfying.So, good luck.
