What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Hello Foto Friday!

Wow. Gotta get into the swing of {Foto Friday} things again.... it was noon and it suddenly occurred to me that I need to get a McLinky up and running sooner rather than later because this Friday Foto thing is (HOPEFULLY) not just for me.

All this to say: sorry it took so long for me to get this up. I'll get better once I get used to the idea of it all again.

Picking my Favorite Photo of the Week wasn't all that hard since I think I picked up the camera...once. (Very unlike me.)

My brother gave this gorgeous orchid to me on New Years Eve.

I love Orchids.

'nuff said.


What is YOUR Favorite of the Week?

The idea behind Foto Friday is to share a favorite photo that was taken the week prior. My hope is that it encourages us all to get behind the camera more often, to seek beauty out and new perspectives, and that it forces us to challenge ourselves and our photo-taking skills to soar to new heights all the while, having crazy fun.

Though a theme/challenge is not a requirement for sharing a photo, I will give a challenge SUGGESTION every week for those that want to push the envelope in their photography. I can not promise I will follow through with the suggestions myself, but I will be trying them on occasion. :-) Feel free to use the suggested challenge or create a challenge of your own, and if the mere act of picking up the camera is challenge enough-feel free just to post your favorite photograph of the week!

Please put the specific blog link in the Mclinky when sharing photos, and if you would~ add the Foto Friday button (on sidebar) to your post. The more that participate, the merrier.

Have FUN!!!


For those so inclined, a good challenge for this coming week is SPOTS.

Ok, Missy. I've been waiting and waiting. And I think you promised to show us your special Christmas gift a few weeks back, and I'm beginning to get impatient. ;-)

I LOVE your picture. Orchids are by far my favorite flower. One of these days I'm gonna get to Hawaii and have a field day in orchids!! I am so excited about Foto friday starting back. Thanks for starting it up again!

Great picture, Rebecca. Thank you for giving a challenge. I find that I do better with some sort of subject! I'll try and join in next week.

Hi Rebecca! Thanks for the comments on my blog. I do love doing the 365. I started it last year and life kind of got the best of me. So when I started back up I just started over. So far, so good but I am only on day 6. Hehe!

I got a new camera for Christmas and am trying to learn how to use it better. The project gives me even more of a reason to play with it. :)

I love your picture, by the way! Its beautiful.
