  11. Denise, that is just an amazing macro. It really shows what Laura says on her meme -- Noticing he beauty of nature that might be overlooked if we didn't slow down and look. I just kept looking back and forth between the macro and the other shots of the beautiful lotus, thinking 'wow I would never have noticed that'.... (Next time I will; thank you!

  27. Fantastic photos, Denise! Loved the first one particularly!

    About that Scotsman...he's one of the "children of the world"--Just FYI, a lot of people don't understand why the murals are allowed to be in the Denver Airport, but the airport is privately funded, as I mentioned, and the people who control it believe that there will be a cataclysm and then a new world will emerge (New World Order) when most people will be gone and the children of the world will inherit a time of peace, but with the elite in charge. This is one of their ways of telling us what is going on, without trumpeting it loudly. It's like the Georgia Guidestones (look them up if you don't know about them). I thought you might like to get the explanation. We just had to see them for ourselves! And yep, there they were!
