Upbeat flower on Piney Branch--one of the last hold-outs from summer

I think some of us are still wondering if Tuesday's historic presidential outcome was real or a dream. That said, I took this picture a few days ago and I like it because I think it reflects the mood in Washington, D.C., right now. Upbeat. Happy. Looking forward to the days ahead!

Virginia: Thanks. My secret? A macro lens accessory for my Canon A630.

Tanya: Thanks! Seriously you'd buy and frame this for your house?

Maya: Flowers are always good. It can't be monuments and memorials all the time, right?

Congrats, I watched the American Election Coverage Live on and off as the dy went on (from 12.30pm here.) I wondered where you were! Honestly, I wondered you were at the moment the news broke that Obama was president.

Obama's election effects us too....power to the people I say!

Election Day here...and nothing on tv about it till tonight.

Lisa: Mostly I was tracking the election from the comfort of my office, but when I heard people were pouring into the streets in celebration, I had to be a part of that. As for our elections effecting your country and others, you're right. America has to acknowledge it's no longer a standalone country. We need to be less isolationist and recognize we are part of the global village. What we do affects the world and we need to be more responsible about that.

Hope New Zealand's elections went well!
