My name is Brenda Nelson and I live in Mountain Home, Arkansas, USA. My husband Larry ("lgnelson" on PB) and I have been married for 44 years - with 2 grown children (plus their spouses) and 5 beautiful grandchildren (3 girls and 2 boys). I'm a Christian homemaker, who also did a morning radio program for 34 years - 3 hours a day of news, music and daily interviews. (Thus, the name "DJ Nana"). However, in June 2009, my husband and I both retired! And we quickly discovered that life is really just beginning!

Larry and I enjoy travelling and playing golf, singing together (we met in a college music group), riding our motorcycle across the country, and doing projects that make a difference in the world through groups like Rotary International, World Vision, and our church.

I hope that God allows us many more years to enjoy each other and His beautiful creation - carrying our golf clubs and cameras! I can't wait for the next great "shot"!

The sunlight reflecting on the windmill, the stone, and the flowers is just bewitching. Great capture - great caption!
Thank you very much Brenda!

If capturing these on your camera is sinful, I'll pray for you! Wonderful collection!

You are a master of b/w! These are both so excellent in what is seen in their faces (#1) and what is not seen (#2). Wonderful work, Josy!
many, many thanks Brenda !

Lovely set, K - #3 is so sweet, the lighting in #5 highlights the branch, and the last one is simply stunning!
Thank you, Brenda. The beautiful colors created by nature is amazing. That's what I think when I see your photos of sunset/sunrise.

Oh, Helen, this is so wonderful. And the use of selective color really accents the price they paid in blood. Thank you for sharing this monument I knew nothing about.
Thank you Brenda. There are memorials like this all over the place in London. There's a large one inside Liverpool Street, the station I travel into when I come into the city, and they were setting up for a commemoration there as I walked past. Somehow this one meant more as it seemed so spontaneous.

Fascinating shots, A. As much as I hate graffiti on public buildings in the US, I admit that young people are masters with a spray can, as you have shown!
I also hate graffiti. But sometimes we have to surrender to the sagacity of graffiters.

Nice tribute, Sara.
