enjoying your flower series very much, Elizabeth.
we are just getting a lot of tropical rainfall in Singapore
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Ayush - I'm so glad you are!
Don't wash away!
Il y a beaucoup de jolies fleurs chez toi.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes there are - we're so lucky!

What beauty you are able to find and show, Elizabeth!

Such a delicate beauty in this small flower! Enjoy the snow that you're getting. Our early snow finally melted. Now it's time to rake. smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks very much, Steven!
Oh dear... well, your snow tends to be much more wet and disruptive than ours... so I think that's fine!
That is beautifully done.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Michael. The lighting was very flat, so I messed around with it a bit! smile

lovely subtle color
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Harry - it was so delicate and small... but the lighting was terribly flat, so I messed around with the texture a bit

A sweet little flower
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Very much so!
It's a "privilege," indeed, Elizabeth, to love and be loved! I love your image...and that you're getting snow already!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is, Ginnie. I wish for everyone to find what we have!
Yes! And we should get a good foot of snow over Thanksgiving!

I especially like the colour variations n the petal.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Alan - yes, it was so pretty. The light was very flat, so I had to mess around with it a bit!

What a wonderful flower this is, Elizabeth and O love the presentation. SNOW.... Frank knows that he misses that sad.... and what a wonderful poem.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it pretty! The light was terribly flat, so I had to mess around with it a bit!
Yes - poor Frank. The first thing he said was "Gee, I'm missing all the fun". But then I reminded him that we get most of our snow between Christmas and April - so there will be plenty upon his return! smile
The poem is just perfect, isn't it - we are so lucky and privileged, aren't we?!
une petite merveille que cette fleur
Profites bien de la neige
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it pretty!
Thank you, Claudine! We'll have much more this week!
Lovely picture.

Snow!! Wow!!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Bill!
Yes! Poor Frank said - "Gee - I'm missing all the fun". Then I reminded him that we get most of our snow between Christmas and April!

You will have less flowers after the snow, so I hope that you stock up on pictures.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes... Oh I have plenty! smile

Another lovely floral image and another lovely quotation.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Anne!
I am still happy we are NOT getting snow but I now have my tires changed over. After last year's early winter blast, lots of people prepared early.

You must have been in the near dark to get this lovely shot.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Awe - it will come! smile And it's definitely good to be prepared!
The light was terribly flat... so I messed around with it a bit!

Oh, you have snow, this is a beautiful, gentle flower!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - YAY! Thank you, Philine!
Another lovely little flower you have pictured. You wouldn't like the snow here, even a tiny fall causes chaos everywhere whereas I guess you folks go about your daily business unperterbed.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Brian!
I understand that to be true! It's not the norm for you. But yes, we have snow plows of all sizes for all sorts of roads... Gigundous for the highways, down to those attached to pickups for the smaller neighborhood roads. We're ready!
SUch a sweet image and sentiment.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Ruthie!
I'm happy to say that the snow has not yet arrived in Sheffield, or anywhere else in England as far as I am aware!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It certainly wouldn't be the norm for you - and it's just as well it's not fallen yet!
Very delicate and pretty flowers, Elizabeth smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Martin!

I love the soft look - it matches the poem perfectly.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Beth! The light was terribly flat, so I had to mess about with it quite a bit!
i love your flower and the way you framed... we have had lots of snow up here too Elizabeth... i have had my driveway plowed twice all ready....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Peter!
Wonderful winter!!
beautiful shot.

Do you recommend any specific online websites for photographers to sell their photos?

An Athens friend is interested in finding one or more.

Alan
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you.
I do not have any recommendations.... but a good friend of mines uses the Photo Buy service Smug Mug provides. This is one of his:

Hes' used another service as well, but it's not coming to my mind.
