Hi all! I took a bit of a blogging break and have been off line quite a bit over the last two weeks. Last week I went up to northern Maine to have Thanksgiving with the in-laws. There was a bit of crusty snow when I got there. The dogs, however, loved it – this is early Wednesday morning: Continue reading →
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.
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 →
I recently took two photos that I want in my “Media” on the blog so I can refer back to them in the future. What better way to get them up than to just write a post with no reason to exist except to put these photos up? ;)
Here is a new “Weekend Coffee Share”, i.e. “If We Were Having Coffee”, photo to be used when I want coffee outside. This is the backyard at the new house on Cape Cod. See the hammock in the background?
The second is a photo of all of my books to date. I didn’t have any with all of them together sine the two novellas came out. Now I do.
Need a book to read? I have a recommendation or five ;)
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):
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 ;)
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…
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 ;)
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. Continue reading →
I spent a chunk of the last week in April on Cape Cod. On one of my walks down a Bell’s Neck in Harwich I watched about a half a dozen osprey hunt/fish. I took well over 200 photos! The sky was awful – it was cloudy and about noon.
My camera also did a weird thing in its focusing and exposure. I have noticed that occasionally some settings will seem to change randomly. Long and short, the exposures were awful for anything not pointing at the water. The sun did eventually come out and a couple of osprey flew by, so I have a couple of “sunny photos”.
