Every day I come across photographs that are beautiful, startling, or funny. Sometimes - they are examples of fabulous photography but more often - they are photos of places or things I simply find appealing. And these days the effects are so good I cannot tell if a photo has been altered or enhanced. But if I like it, I like it. I decided to create a place where I could share them with other people. I should go on record saying - I think almost any kitten is a cute kitten, and I'm a sucker for a pretty flower. Oh, my name is BetteJo, I've been called a crazy cat lady, and I bead. Welcome!

Love the incongruity
