Weekly Photo Challenge: SHINE

The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is SHINE.

When something stands out from its surroundings, it is said to shine. When light hits an object in a certain way, it is said to shine. The two often come together as in this photo of my favorite Camellia japonica ‘Magnoliaeflora.”
