i have a new phone .. the galaxy S21 Ultra 5G .. YAY .. !!! .. so much better than my galaxy S9+ .. and the cameras are worlds apart ..

i'd only had it a couple of days when i was walking with mr tod on my land .. somewhere i love to be and which i call home .. i took a few pics of tod on the other side of the gate .. and when i looked at them on the phone i was blown away by how good they looked .. especially compared to the S9+ .. the HDR effect is also amazing ..

anyway .. when i saw this challenge i thought .. a home is not necessarily a place of residence .. altho i felt that many ppl who enter and vote in this challenge will interpret it as such ..
that's ok .. we can all have different opinions ..

i'm entering this as a statement really .. that home really is where the heart is .. and our hearts arent always confined to four walls .. and because the challenge description said be creative ..!!.. ;)

after i'd thought all that i googled 'home sweet home' .. and this came up .. was nice that me and google agreed .. ;)
"your home will always be the place for which you feel the deepest affection, no matter where you are."

one day and four hours till rollover and thankyou for the comments .. xx

re shooting thru the gate .. was just a candid shot .. no 'reason' except i liked the effect .. :)

another thing i was thinking re this challenge .. what about ppl who are homeless .. and home sweet home is the streets ..
challenges like this are great for opening our eyes to the differences in other ppl's lives, circumstances and way they approach a challenge .. :)

had to rub my eyes ..
seeing this on the home page was quite a surprise especially with the score .. and especially as there were a lot of rather beautiful images entered in this challenge that i felt would do heaps better than this pic ..
btw .. i absolutely love how four out of the top five feature our canine companions .. thats THE best .. :)

Gorgeous picture, gorgeous light, gorgeous dog! Congrats on the ribbon, Roz. My equal top pick (with Ammie's). The dogs did well, didn't they?

I love little Toddy!

I'm not fond of the fence either, but... apparently, I'm wrong. :D

Congratulations on your new phone and your new ribbon, Roz!

Indeed, and our hearts are with our dogs even in the open and in nature. Congratulations on a wonderful image.

I was so struck by this image and, besides it being beautifully crafted, didn't quite know why. Upon reading your sensitive explanation, now I do.
