FOL14 - Week 26

Wow - half way through the year.  The first part has flown by, if you ask me.  Hopefully the second half of the year will slow down just a tad bit so we can all catch our breath, right?!

For week 26 of the Focus on Life 2014 weekly photography challenge, Sally has given us this prompt:

June 2014: Putting the Fun In Photography
Week 26: Free Space!

"Like the good old bingo cards state, "FREE SPACE" right smack dab in the middle of the card!  We have reached the half way point of the year, REALLY!  
We are half way through 2014!  
For this week you have a "free space" to photography what ever you would like in what ever way you would like."

Oh, so many possibilities.

I took some pics over Memorial Day Weekend while we were up in the mountains at my sis and brother-in-law's cabin.   

I rather like the look of this one, so I played around with editing it a bit. 

And, being our country's symbol of Freedom, I thought it would fit nicely for our 'Free Space' prompt.

I haven't watched the video that Sally no nicely put up on 'softening' your photos - so I'll have to do that because this one might look cool that way. 

Please check out the below links and see what every one else chose as their 'Free Space' this week, won't you?! 

Oh, and be sure to come back 
here tomorrow for the 
Pearls! Pearls!! Pearls!!! 
Blog Hop - Link Up.

I'd love for you to link up with us and show us what you've created with your pearls!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and "FREE" Space

Free Space to Grow! ;-)


  1. A gorgeous photo! I love seeing the American Flag flying with all it's glory!

  3. Lots of beautiful pictures. I like your editing on the first photo.

  4. I am such a sucker for patriotic photos and I just love this one! Good job!

  5. What a great post! Love your interpretation of the prompt :)
    I'm waving a wee flag for the US soccer team in the World Cup (as England have already come home *sigh*) - go USA!!
    Hope you're having a fun weekend :)

  6. Michelle, love your patriotic theme for the free space prompt.... even better with the July 4th holiday right around the corner. Hope you enjoyed some time away from the heat!
