Photos of Cape Cod May – July, 2020

Yesterday I took a couple of hours and zipped through the hundreds of photos I have taken in the last few months.  I didn’t look at every photo – I barely even glanced at the photos of flying osprey, of which there were hundreds, but grabbed one from this weekend: Continue reading

Photos of Maine Over Thanksgiving

Mt. Katahdin

I used to do a photo post at least once a month.  I have done very few this year… I was taking a lot of pictures, but they were “rotting” on my computer, not even a glance of regret.  And then I stopped taking them altogether.  Why bother?  So I took a lot of photos in Maine, mostly of my dogs ;)

There is a great view out of my in-laws window and I took quite a few photos from there, seeing all types of light. Continue reading

Too Many Photos, Too Little Time ;)

Osprey at Sunset

I take so many photos and rarely take the time to go through them.  I just downloaded about 250 more photos to my computer.  Sigh.  Some of them are nice, like the ones form the seal watch tour.  Oh well, perhaps I will have time to look at them later.  But here is a teaser – the photo at the top is of an osprey flying at sunset, the one below is a seal form pretty close up.

Photos from Late June and Early July, 2019

Immature red Tail Hawk flying over

I used to do a lot of photo posts, but haven’t put many up recently.  I have literally thousands of photos from 2018 and early 2019 that I have not even looked at let alone sorted and edited!  over the last week I broke down and looked at the last few.

I spent the last week of June on Cape Cod.  I worked half of the week and entertain guests, so I didn’t take a lot of photos that I can post, but there are a few, like this photo of my nephew fishing. Continue reading

Notre Dame

Notre Dame Cathdral at sunset

I have been to Paris three times and have spent almost 25 days there.  My favorite part of the city is the Notre Dame Cathedral.  While visiting, sometimes I would just sit in the little garden behind it and read or hang out.  Very nice.

I am sure you have all been watching/reading the news.  Such a terrible tragedy.

Here are just a few posts I have done on the city (I had over a half a dozen posts in 2015 alone):

Some Photos of Paris (photos) (2015)
Quick Sketch Notre Dame (pencil sketch) (2016)
Paris (2015)
Dreams of Paris – Prelude #9 (music) (2015)
Rue (poem) (2014)

Anyway, here are some photos I took over the three visits (2001, 2002, 2011).  Click on a photo for more detail.  This will also allow you to scroll through. Continue reading

Time and Photos

Photos beyond count
Raw statistics in folders
No time to revel
I have snapped many pictures
But have left them unopened

I open the ‘Explore’ on my computer and go to photographs.  There are folders ordered by dates staring at me.  Each folder contains a lot of photos, dozens, hundreds.  I leaf through some and find them both familiar and unfamiliar.  I have seen very few of them since the moment I clicked the shutter.  There are birds and people.  There are rabbits and buildings.  There are trees and lakes and seascapes.  Pictures of merrymakers reveling at a wedding reception, dancing to loud music.  Birds sitting on quiet shores or soaring majestically through the air.  Where has the time gone?  Why can’t I just sit down and go through these pieces of memory?  Perhaps even post some on my blog  Ooops, where has the time gone!?! I have to get back to work!!!  Bye… Continue reading

Inter-Dimensional Dancing

Last weekend I was at my nephew’s wedding.  The reception was held at my parent’s house.  They set up a tent on their brick patio between their house and garage.  The tent was fringed with small purple lights.  Good thing, too! Well, not good about the purple lights, but about the tent.  You see, it poured!  Despite the rain, people used the tent as a dance floor.  I tried to get some photos, but it was too dark.  So I decided to have some fun instead.

These are pretty much straight from the camera.  And no drugs were used in the making of the photos ;)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I used to do a weekly “Media Monday” post.  I’m not sure what happened to it.  Well, I do.  One thing you most likely know is that I take a lot of photos.  Unfortunately, I don’t have time to go through photos.  I have about 2000 photos that I’ve taken over the last three months that I have not looked at.  Anyway, the osprey chick and osprey butt at the top of the page is a sample of some of the photos I have taken without going through. The eagle photo below is another one.  Hopefully sometime I will find the time…

Cape Cod in Late April Part 2

A couple of loons

Last Monday I posted a bunch of photos I took of Osprey.  All of these photos were taken in an hour.  I was on Cape Cod on a “stay-cation” at my cottage for four days without any work.  So what did I do for the other three days, 23 hours?  Well, here are some more photos ;)

Swan on Swan Pond

I have seen very few loon on The Cape.  This time I saw several on two different bodies of water.  I saw as many as three together and often saw two.  I didn’t hear that call they make.  Last year in Maine, at dusk, I sat and listened to loons call.  It is a magical sound…  However, at the end of April on Cape Cod, I did hear them “talk”.  They made sounds back and forth.  Very cool, if not quite the chilling call.
