70/295

I want to thank everyone who has been nice enough to stop by to visit my little place in space. Your kind and thoughtful comments are a sure way of keeping me inspired to continue with the Project. A heartfelt thank you to each of you. ♥

To address a few questions I’ve been asked. I am always happy to answer questions so feel free to ask.

~ The “floating” strawberry was actually a hanging strawberry. I tide a white thread to the top of the berry, around the stem. Tide the other end around a knife and hang the berry into a clear, square vase. I placed the vase against a white poster and my camera on a tripod. I waited for the berry to stop swinging and I shot through the glass.

~ The many Lighthouse I have been visiting are open. Visitors are always welcome to walk around the grounds they are standing on. The East Point Lighthouse, which stands at the mouth of the Delaware River, has been abandoned.  The Historical Society continues to raise funds which will allow them to restore the building. Many of the others are open, for inside tours, during the summer months and on the weekends during the winter. I do not care for heights and rarely venture up the 100s of open spiral stairs to the top.

~ Dana, (Phriend) and I have known each other for over a decade. We lived in the same neighborhood and for many years, both of us planned our next crafting project at worked for a local craft/fabric shop, which closed 3 years ago. The family of friends we made there continue to stay in touch. Dana and I knew we had a mutual interest in photography but only recent started taking on our big ventures together.

~ and for those who asked me about the "follow" button, I am flattered and added it to the bottom of my sidebar.

Love the simplicity of this! Beautiful!

Thanks for explaining how you shot the strawberry. I was thinking you Photoshopped out a toothpick or something that was holding it up. :)
