I actually ended up using this shot instead:

  23. Hello Ida! I love the photos you shared today. I'm looking for some new memes and think I'll check out these links. I love hot air balloons and riding in one is on my bucket list. I'm happy you chose the close up of the fountain edge; love the water dripping off the side. I also like looking at spider webs up close. They are so intricate and amazing. Autumn is almost here, weather wise, in middle Missouri. I'm looking forward to the cooler temps.

I enjoyed your fill-in-the-blank answers, and I especially agree about blogging, what an incredible world of friendship it has opened up! So thankful for our friendship that has endured, I still think of you as I sip hot tea in my rooster mug sent from you :) Hope life settles down for you, how is your Mom doing? Hugs :)

  27. Lovely images, Ida. I'm fascinated by the autumn leaves as well. I keep carrying them home from dog-walks. I love your fountain image - those moment in time water shots are amazing.
