Our Beautiful World - DETAIL

The word prompt for this week over at the Our Beautiful World is DETAIL. What a theme! Everywhere I looked, I saw little details, inside the cottage, outside the cottage. What to pick? I don't have a macro lens so I was a little limited in the kind of details I could go for, but here are some details I snapped -

The beautiful original gilding on my favourite vintage Lloyd Loom chair -

Just a couple of tiny sparkles caught on the uneven surface of a granite block in the cottage wall, can you see them? -

One lone silver dollar (at least that is what we call these thingies on this plant)-

Moss growing on the bark of a tree stump in the garden -

Knot in a wooden beam above one of the outer doors in the cottage -

Inside the flower of a trailing begonia in the garden -

The cracks in a log beside the front door -

And last but definitely not least, the most beautiful detail, my Hector's eyes -


If you look closely at the first picture, you can see my reflection in his eye.

And now I have to chose one photo to link to the Our Beautiful World blog, which one, which one, which one???  Please tell me which one you would chose.

Have a wonderful weekend wherever you may be.

Oh Liz they are all fantastic but still can't decide between the wooden knot in the beam above one of the outer doors to the cottage and Hector's eye (reflecting you!) and surrounding hair.
Have a beautiful sunny weekend,
Sending summer hugs dear friend,
Suzy

Skønne nærfoto, jeg elsker nok Hektors øje medst, for for dig er han dit dyr, men for ham er du hele hans tilværelse. dine "silver dollar" heder i Danmark "Judas penge" og den gule blomst er helt vidunderlig. knus morkaren.

Liz, you amaze me, these are all so beautiful. I would have to say, Hector's eye really took my breath away. I am such an animal lover, I truly believe dogs have such good souls.

Beautiful details! I enjoyed looking at all of your photos. The inside of the flower is gorgeous and the cracks in the log look like a star fish. And your sweet Hector's eyes are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
