The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad...
It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice with joy
and singing ...to see the glory of the Lord and the
excellency of our God...Isaiah 35: 1~2 .

I apologize that it was so windy and gusty outside today that I am using a SP of myself that I shot two days ago. I did not want to chance my tripod tipping over again. I hope all the blossoms have not blown off the Lilac bush after today. The sun was shining so brightly on this SP that it gave my hair a reddish tone. I purchased the long skirt I am wearing from an antique shop several years ago and it is very old. I am replacing another entry I formerly had for this theme and thought this may work better for Nostalgia.

    I love the romantic, old fashion look in this photo! It's fun to dress up and you look wonderful in that outfit! The last time I dressed like a lady was for my daughter's wedding....and before that...I can't remember!

    Love that dress, this photo does look great for the nostalgia theme. I would be careful about my camera on a tripod in the wind also!!!

    If modern photography were available in the 19th Century, I would think this was made in that time. I love your old fashioned look...and I wish I could smell those lilacs. Splendid sp, Andrea.

    The light also gives you an almost ghostly appearance, which I think is a real plus for this theme, as well as added interest to this beautiful SP.

    This is so soft and beautiful. That skirt is gorgeous - as are you in this SP!
