My first thought for “You Pick It” was to share flowers from my recent visit to Descanso Gardens, but after seeing Tina’s marvelous flowers, I decided to go “white.”

On a two-day trip to Yosemite in March a few years ago, we left on a magical day where we saw clouds filled the marvelous landscape.

Who could resist a shot of this cutie on my first visit to Descanso Gardens? I’ve given it an edit to take out any other colors.

Egrets are the new white in my life.

Light + spider web= white.

And a final whiteout from my first visit to Descanso Gardens. If I lived anywhere near, I’d have a membership and be there at least once a week!

for Lens-Artists Challenge #125 – You Pick It!

    Lovely, Janet! The white clouds over Yosemite is my favourite today, but it wasn’t an easy pick!

    • I’m surprised we ever got out of the park. It was so beautiful that I kept asking my daughter to stop so I could take another picture. 🙂 It was the kind of beauty that almost hurts your heart.

      • de Wets Wild says:

        I know exactly what you mean, Janet. The kind of beauty that makes you realise in the first place that all of it didn’t just “appear”, secondly that, despite our own vanity, we are actually very small in the big scheme of things and thirdly that, despite our insignificance, we are Loved more than we can ever imagine and certainly enough to be given glimpses into a perfect world like that beautiful scene in Yosemite…

      • Yes! These things didn’t just happen from a speck that somehow showed up. That takes way too much belief!

  2. Tina Schell says:

    Oh what a beautiful choice Janet! Your sweet little one is so very precious and I love that you took out the other colors. Your egret reflections are marvelous as well. Loved your response.

    I like your take on this week’s theme (and not sure if you saw her post yet – but Rusha went with a white theme and I think this is a cool way to approach a post and nice to see your and hers so diverse and so creative on the same topic of white)
    And back to your post-
    The baby photo from the side added interest and the egrets lined up like that – tail to tail – what a nice almost symmetrical vibe

  4. […] Lens-Artist photo challenge theme is “Pick Your Own” – and  after seeing Rusha and Janet both go with a “white” theme- and they both had such diverse takes, I decided to go […]

    Beautifully done, Janet! From start to finish 🙂 🙂 Happy Sunday!

  6. Sue says:

    Great take on the post, Janet!

  7. Lovely, and I especially smiled at the little person on the blanket.

  8. Dan Antion says:

    Very nicely done, Janet. I find white hard to photograph well. You made it look easy.

  9. Love this white theme, and since I did this as well, it’s interesting how we chose different things. I’m fascinated by the spider web — so delicate yet so clear. A very good image to frame. But so is that precious child. If I were the mom, I’d love to have that one on my bedroom dresser. An excellent take on this week’s theme.

  10. Cee Neuner says:

    Oh what brilliant whites you have 😀

  11. The mountain and the little girl, lovely shots!

  12. Amy says:

    Great choice, Janet! I love this white series. All are beautifully captured.

  13. pattimoed says:

    What a gorgeous collection, Janet. That little girl is precious! The egrets and the spider web are lovely. That’s a great idea to focus on one color. Love it!

  14. JohnRH says:

    Great photos, excellent selections. Very well done.

  15. Resa says:

    Sensational, Janet! I can’t pick a fave, as they each stand out in their own way.

    So, being as that I’m in one of those silly moods today, let me ask….Did anyone post a pic, or pics of noses?

  16. Leya says:

    What outstanding beauty! Lovely choices in white, Janet. My favorite (all of them) must be…Yosemite. I understand why you coud hardly leave!

  17. […] Janet of This, That and the Other Thing treats us to a beautiful gallery of images in white […]

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
