Find the Story Friday!!! And me..without my good camera...

I am by no means a professional photographer.  (Oh, Happy Friday, btw!!)

I would love to take classes and someday I'm sure I will.  Because I am forever looking at the world through a lense.  I'll see something (ok, mostly landscapes, sunrises, sunsets, full moons (the kind in the SKY, people!!) fall leaves and oddly enough...snow) and think, "Wow.  That'd make a great picture!" 

And do I ever have my camera at these times?  Yeah,  I do usually have my phone.  It's not quite the same...I can't zoom.  I can't mess with the lighting, use a flash, play with the scene set up, yadda, yadda.  But, I get the image.  And the one I'm sharing with you today is from one of the moments.  Actually, I credit my daughter with this one.  I made her stand on the top of my car in the grocery parking lot to get a better shot...  :)

Gorgeous, no?  (well, minus the cars and those blasted telephone poles!!)

Sunsets are always good story fodder for romance - don't you think?  Are any of your MCs currently making out with minor characters or pondering the wonders of the universe while watching a sunset right now?

Happy writing!!

BEAUTIFUL! I think it's even lovely with all that junk. Makes nice contrast. Nice job!!!

The human additions make the sky even more powerful - nothing man can create can compete with nature! :)

Love your blog!

Yes, very very nice photo. Even with the cars, it works well. Great eye. Keep shooting, you're doing well.

Hope the rest of your reading month goes well. Happy Reading :-)

Thats gorgeous! What great picture quality in your phone! I think with my revisions will come some more steamy making out in my book.I don't think I have enough ;p

Such a pretty sunset! My MCs are sort of ambivalent towards sunsets. Mattie, in particular. It reminds her of home while she's out and about (somewhat against her will), and she doesn't want to be reminded.

I think the picture is great! The differences in the skies and the cars reminds me of texture in an odd way. (The cars being rough and gritty, the sky being billowy and soft)

Anyway, my MC is doing a lot of pondering at sunset and sunrise. She's sleepless right now, but that will change soon.

Gorgeous!!!! Photographer or not this photo rocked my world!

My character is not currently making out or watching the sunset, lol. But I think it's funny that you shared that with us... it's cute!

Just a reminder! Be Jolly By Golly Blog fest is this Monday! Melissa and I look forward to reading your entry!
