  4. […] Mid-Week Monochrome #120 – My mode of transportation yesterday, out in the woods, searching for robins. I am hoping to combine several of my photos into a watercolor painting. A few weeks ago, I captured a few moments on video of this happy robin bathing in a swamp. There was a sweet magic in the moment. […]

  5. I like the edit. It hints at the parallel between woolly sheep and clouds. Here is my monochrome: https://picturesimperfectblog.wordpress.com/2023/01/25/a-pause-between-scavenging/

      1. It’s happened enough that I now assume it’s the AM/PM issue but it’s still annoying. Why can’t WP know what I mean even if I don’t put it in correctly???? 😉
