Remember the Ten Day Travel Photo Challenge was to get ten photographers to participate if possible.   So for day eight, nine and ten, I challenge any photographer to join in.  

If any of the nominees don’t have time to participate, I understand, as we are all busy doing what we do.  Regardless I hope you will check out their beautiful work capturing the splendor of our world.  These are all extremely talented photographers.   I am an amateur, but the people listed below are the real thing.  They treasure our world and the beauty of all life.   Please don’t miss out on spending time on their sites.  Thank you so much.  Our world through our camera lens tells a little bit about each of us.  Love Joni

    1. Thank you my friend. I really do thank you for your thoughtful words. You are a tree lover too I see. It is a real beauty. Not hard to take a good photo of something God made so gorgeous. By the way please let me know if you are interested in being nominated to post some of your photography. They don’t have to be recent or even exotic shots. Let me know as a lot of people don’t have the time and I don’t like putting people on the spot. I was so flattered to be nominated by Francisco as he is like a multi-talented genius, I couldn’t say no. My friends, who are all so talented have been kind to accept. They are all busy with projects also multi-talented folks. It would be great to nominate you. Thanks again and please let me know. Sending love to you and your loved ones. Stay safe too. 🤗💕❤️Joni

      1. I am a newbie and sometimes I flub up and lose something. I am learning, but I am a slow learner about blogs and internet stuff. But when and if I get it, I got it forever. I am looking a some of my photos of when we traveled the Western United States and realize I have a ton. I never thought of putting them in my blogs about where we went. Duh! Will try to put more of them on my blogs as I rewrite them. Our big project this weekend is work on our website, it is live and needs some work. I would be honored to be nominated and will try to post nearly every day.❤❤ Thanks, Brenda

      2. I will post tomorrow my 9th day and it will go live with your address on Sunday the 10th at 12:00 am, est. You can begin your post of your photography when you want to do so. You don’t have to post them everyday. Thank you and good luck. I am an amateur but the folks I nominated are really gifted photographers. You will hopefully get to know some folks. Have a blessed evening my friend. Hugs and love ❤️ Joni

    1. Thank you Tim. I am hanging out with some amazing talent here so doing the best I can. I appreciate the kindness. Glad you are still writing and singing. You have a lot going on. It keeps life interesting doesn’t it. Take care your two and be blessed. Hugs 🤗 Joni

    1. Thank you Cindy. I bet you have a lot of Koi where you live. I bet you miss those beautiful kids of yours. Hopefully they don’t live too far away. I hope everyone is doing well. I am so behind in my reading. I was busy submitting and writing and keeping up becomes hard sometimes for me. I still haven’t tried your new work out yet I am ashamed to say. I need to pay you a visit. I like to watch your videos, you are so good at that. I am too shy. The camera likes you too. Sending you love Cindy and prayers for great health. 🤗💕❤️😘

      1. You are so welcome. I love to visit the Koi in Hawaii but the racoons would get them in my yard. One is living for at home with is such a gift right now. The others will be back as soon as they can see each other again which is very dear. If you miss one day here you are behind so I get it. Especially when you get more followers, it’s tough. Good for you on the submitting piece and writing more. That’s awesome. I’ll look forward to when you come and I think you’ll like the burning Bowl ceremony. Thank you so much and I trust you will when you can. You did an amazing job with your song. Love to you to and blessings for a wonderful weekend. ❤️xoxox

      2. What a kind soul you are my friend. A raccoon family that sounds so sweet. Yes it is getting hard to keep up. There is so much talent, help and practical and helpful things like you do to enjoy. Yet I am starting to feel overwhelmed as I feel like the people I meet and bond with are my dear friends and I don’t want to lose touch with anybody. Today I am going to visit your site and about five others I haven’t visited in a while because I end up spending a lot of time once I am in. Sending you lots of love. Yes if I were ever coming your way I would definitely send a message. Sending lots of love and hugs my friend. 🤗💕❤️🦋Joni

      3. You and I are kindred spirits Joni and I do know what you mean exactly. Hearts that love and care have a hard time with a word or two when we share our souls. I appreciate what ever time you spend with me and always am graced by your presence in my life. Have a wonderful weekend and see you later when time allows. ❤️❤️❤️🤗

      4. Oh that is so kind and thoughtful of you my friend. Your words have truly touched my heart ❤️ Cindy. We are kindred spirits indeed. Thank you for that. You just made my day. An air balloon full of hugs and love coming your way. 🤗💕❤️🦋

    1. Hello my friend I am so behind in reading. I have been working hard trying to write and submit. I haven’t read one of your post in a while. I hope you are well and your job is going better. I miss talking to you. I love your honesty my friend. How crazy have things become. It is frightening ridiculous. I love you my friend. I will read you soon. I am not going to submit any new work for a while. I love koi they are so beautiful. Thank you. Sending a boatload of hugs. 💕❤️🤗Joni

  1. Such spectacular photos! I love each & every one & the tree growing on the slope is my fav. Thank you for sharing your gift of taking pictures. xoxo

    1. Thank you for your kind words. You send real flowers. They are so pretty. You are so treasured in my heart dear Janette. Anytime you feel like being a featured photographer let me know. You are much better than I am my friend. Love you sweetie. Thinking about what a kind soul you are and how blessed I have been to know you for so many years. Sleep well dear Janette. Love ❤️ Joni

      1. Joni, please don’t deny your photo skills, we are both talented in capturing what we see on film. I love that we have that gift together! You are such a gem to us all in your posts, & for myself a magnificent friend. I simply adore you as a human being & my longtime friend.

      2. Oh Janette thank you for your kindness. I am looking forward to your feature. Janette you are a Gem to me. My longest known girlfriend and a sweetheart to boot. Literally a boot, of which I hope you have stayed totally off of today my friend. I love you. 💕 you are probably getting pretty use to having the fairies around. I hope they are being good for you. Sending you so much love dear Janette. 🤗💕❤️🦋🧚‍♀️🧚‍♀️🧚‍♀️🧚‍♀️😘😘😘

  2. You sure have been to some beautiful places, Joni! I enjoyed your travel photos very much, thanks for sharing, now let’s hope we can start to travel again one of these days!😍☺

    1. Thank you Tiffany for your always sweet words. I really haven’t traveled that much. Most of the photos are from NC and surrounding cities. The Koi and some of the pictures from the last two entries were from Hawaii. Thank you so much for always reading and commenting. Sending you tons of love Tiffany and hope you are well and staying safe. 🤗💕❤️🤗🧚🏻🧚‍♀️

    1. Thank you so much, your very kind comment is truly appreciated. I am doing a lot of asking for forgiveness today as I had (15) old pending comments in my comment folder on my computer, yours being eight days ago. I am very sorry, I use my phone and go into notifications, under comments and answer them at least that morning when they come in. However, I have been told before that they don’t stay there but for so long and then they go away. I have not been checking the comment section under “My Site” and had so many pending some older than yours. So please know if you ever don’t hear back from me, this is the second time since I have been on WordPress that this has happened to me, that I would never ignore someones comment on purpose. Have an amazing weekend my kind friend. Love and kindness coming your way. Joni

  3. In light of events in America this past week, I very much appreciate this reminder of the beauty in the natural world. God’s blessings are all around us. Yet so often we turn a blind eye. May His love always surround you, Joni. I appreciate both your friendship and your talent. <3 <3 <3

    1. Thank you dear Anna. You are so sweet and gracious to me. I have been enjoying other people’s photography as there are some really gifted photographers involved. Your right with all the crazy stuff going on in our world it is easy to forget just how much amazing beauty God blesses us with all over the world. Continuing to offer up prayers and hope for some positive news from you. I will check in soon. I hope you are staying safe, it is very isolating living this way. I am so grateful that I am not alone as even now the days have a way into running in to one another. I am so grateful for my feelings of strong community and love through this venue. Sending you love, hugs and prayers. Love you Anna 🤗💕❤️Joni

    1. Well this was in trash for 11 days so please forgive me. Thank you for your kind comments always my friend. You are so sweet to comment as I know how incredibly busy you are. Good call these photographs were taken in Hawaii on my first trip there with my daughter. It was beautiful everywhere you turn. I don’t like a lot of people around and always prefer to be alone with nature with just a couple of friends or my husband but these places were special. Thank you so much sending love and apologies for the late response. Love Joni
