Show and Tell: drive-by photo-shoot

I thought I’d take a brief break from the heaviness today, and show off some purty pictures.

A few weeks ago I was with my family on a road trip and we kept seeing these amazing fields of bluebonnets everywhere.  On the way to our destination night was falling, so it wasn’t such a good time for picture taking, but on the trip back, it was mid-afternoon and gorgeous.  In fact, we saw a number of cars stopped at the side of the highway taking the obligatory photos of kids in the middle of flowers and people with professional looking cameras taking photos of amazing fields of these flowers.  We pulled over at a spot that looked good and stopped for about 10 minutes.  Below are three of the shots from that day.  A while back I showed and told some bluebonnet pictures, but these were definitely looking more robust:




and finally (that’s my niece in the background):


(Oh, and the last time I did show and tell, I kind of just did a drive by, post and run, with no comment leaving.  I had some heavy emotional stuff come up around the time of the show and tell posting.  So, sorry about that.)

You can join the rest of the class over at Mel’s.
