And alas, another bad photo of a rather nice necklace. My problem is I'm in too big a hurry when I'm photographing to do anything like make sure the background is good, etc. That's a big dichroic glass pendant on multiple woven bead strands.
I took these photos of our neighbor Nancy's garden the night we had Chris's birthday barbecue outside. Nancy is an avid and dedicated gardener, and her house really is that shade of green.
