Jackson, TN - United States

Love the old house with 2 porches....great texture work! f/l

Monee, IL - United States

Enchanting find, capture and digital enhancements, Lois, I find myself captivated by the haunting beauty of Nature reclaiming properties that have outlived their original purpose. I see fresh, new life in the overgrowth of clinging ivy vines and mossesólike garlands on a Christmas tree; hiding imperfections, and adding to the allurement. L/V&F
