Your brilliant photo taking skills made the purple ruellia stand out from everything in the background!!! Beautiful capture Kenn! 😉
Thank you so much, Khloe! Your assessment of my skills is very, very generous—I would probably use the word “lucky” instead of “brilliant.” 🙂
Purple by far is not easy to capture. You did a great job here, Kenn. Love, Amy
Thank you, dear Amy—you are very kind! I think most of the credit belongs to those brilliant lens makers at Canon. 🙂
Yep. Know all about them!!! LOL I give the person behind the lens credit too!!! (((HUGS))) Amy
