What marvelous images were featured at our last Photo Art Friday!  Loved the many creative ways you found to use the pdpa Bamboo Dream texture!

A few of you have expressed some concerns about dealing with the optional theme for next week - connected/connecting/connections (any one of those words).  Not to worry - everything is connected to everything else in one way or another.  For example:

*  smiles are connected to a face
*  dogs are often connected to a leash or their play pal
*  steps are connected to a walkway or a doorway
*  chimneys are connected to a house
*  flowers are connected to the earth
*  handshakes make a nice connection
*  birds are sometimes connected to a branch
*  raindrops make a connection with whatever they land upon
*  quotations can be connected to an image
*  etc, etc, etc

Be assured that there are no 'connection police' that will visit our virtual gallery next week  -  so you can stretch the boundaries of the theme as much as you like without fear of being called out for a connection infraction!

 ;)           :)

I know you don't want me to make the PAF optional challenges tooooooo easy, for it's in stretching that we move beyond our comfort zone and learn and grow.  Besides, you always have the option of ignoring the theme.  Can't get more flexible than that, right?  Of course, I always entertain the hope that you will find a way to connect with the PAF theme.

Thanks so much all you wonderful photographers and digital artists!
