“Photography is the story I fail to put into words.” ~ Destin Sparks

Perhaps this is why many writers are also photographers. Two mediums, the goal the same: to tell a story.

Happy Tuesday! Pickles are done and an appointment I thought I had today is actually next week. Unexpected free time. Woo hoo!

Today’s featured blog: http://awaytogarden.com/

(Don’t forget every comment in August enters your name into the drawing for either a copy of the beautiful Bella Grace magazine or my book Two Hearts: An Adoptee’s Journey Through Grief to Gratitude.)


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. You are one amazing artist!!!

    1. I don’t know about that, Carolyn, but I am enjoying the quiet practice of still life photography. Now you are an amazing artist! You do beautiful work.

  2. it’s a fabulous way to express what’s in your heart. I started a journal yesterday thanks to you, Linda. Your inspiration, and the encouragement from a fabulous friend had me pick up a pen. I always thought of it as a New Years Resolution but it never happened. Here’s to putting pen to paper – if not now when?

    1. Wonderful, Celine! I agree, “if not now when”!

  3. Photography is something I don’t feel competent in, but now that I am blogging, would like to learn the art of it. You can say so much so well with a good photograph; it really beautifies and adds interest to a blog.

    1. I didn’t feel capable to take a decent photo for years either, Lucinda. I’m finding that, for me, slowing down and being thoughtful about what I’m trying to capture makes all the difference. I hope you give it a try. It’s a wonderful practice!

      1. Thank you. That’s good advice and I will try that.

  4. Thank you for the link to the gardening blog, Linda. Lots of good info there.

    1. There sure is! Glad you find it helpful, Karen. I refer to various articles there often throughout the gardening season.

  5. I saw your pickle picture. Awesome! All your photos are so lovely…they could be writing prompts, especially the one above.

    1. Thanks, Karen! I love how photography is another way of telling a story. I’m often thinking of little stories in my mind as I’m composing photographs. ?

  6. I love this photo, your pictures often fill me with nostalgic memories of my childhood…thanks for letting your gift in photography remind me of my story! ?

    1. Aw, thank you, Karen! I love,that my photos take you back to precious times in your life.
