1. Beautiful colors! Thank you for posting.

I hope you are ok, and that the fires and smoke are dissipating.

2. Thank you so much, my dear spooky3!

I am very well and the air is much cleaner today than it has been in some time.

I don't know the current situation about the fires in our local mountains. It's tough going up there.

3. Nice, Peggy!

Your photo brings my eye up and around into a big swirl of bright color!

I also hope you and yours are safe out there.

5. Thanks so much, my dear Ohiogal!

I'd just gotten home from a little grocery/dinner shopping, and when I put my lemon in the bowl.......

Bingo! There's my photo.



We are very safe, and thank you.

6. Thank you so much, my dear flamin lib!

Yup, the colors and textures, along with my desire to do something a little different...

All those elements were in play.

7. Nice photo!

And I like the title "Off Center", kind of what our lives are right now!

9. Beautiful colors.

My summer entry was off center so I cropped and ran with it as if I meant to do it.

Silly Putty was a mistake, and it made millions.

10. Thank you, alfredo!

I loved the off-center look of your summer entry. It did look as though you'd meant it to be seen that way, and it worked!

11. It was off center so I had to crop to salvage it.

I thought it needed negative space to give it more of a 3D look (separation). A close crop would have not worked. Thanks for the kind words.
