The Walk

    1. Me too, Scott. He did take other pictures on that walk and hopefully during the week I can show them. Like I said in this post he really is good and I am seriously trying to get him to come out with me more often to practice with that camera of his. If he does, I know exactly what he is getting for Christmas! 💕🙄💕

  1. Wow Amy, these are just so beautiful, and you had me laughing out loud with your hubby having his camera for three years.. I think I remember you bought it him for his birthday if I am not mistaken..
    I laughed and read your last paragraph out to my hubby… I said does that remind you of anyone?? as my hubby will have something for ages put away not use it, then get it out years later… 😀
    Much love, and looking forward Amy, as I settle in this afternoon to catch up a little here today. ❤

    1. Yes, Sue, you are exactly right. I did buy that camera for his birthday. What a great memory you have! And I am just thrilled that you laughed because our relationship is just like this every single day. If I have not developed a sense of humor by now, I would be in big trouble. Let’s just say that I am not bored with this man who is my husband. And I thank you on the compliment for my photography. With Hubby at my side, he honestly could not believe what caught my eye and how I composed my images. That all being sad, let’s cross all of our fingers that he continues to go out walking with me! Great seeing you today! Big hugs! 💕😚💕

  2. Hello Amy,

    wow, great pictures. You can work for National Geography or for Animal planet. It is not easy task to find those animals, right.To be honest, I love animals, and those are my favorite channels . We can learn a lot from animals, if we only observe them.Whether this snake is poisonous ?

    1. Wow!! What a comment!! Thank you, Ben! I am indeed honored! I am trying to get an ID on the snake right now but so far I don’t know if it’s poisonous or not. Either way, I felt no fear within me or from the snake. Everything while I was photographing the snake, was in harmony. Much Love to you this day! 💕😚💕

  3. Great photos! Autumn is so lovely! Nice catch on the snake and wow, that big turtle! You and hubby continue to crack me up – he did take a couple nice shots of you! Your camera looks really heavy! Will be interesting to see what else hubby has on his “roll of film.”

    1. Thank you, Donna! I am just so happy that my life with hubby gives you a chuckle or two. If I did not have a sense of humor I would be not who I am today. Yes, let’s all cross our fingers that hubby will continue to come out with me om photography shoots. You cracked me up with your roll of film comment. LOL May you have a great day today, dear friend! 💕🤣💕

    1. It’s not often in the past that I have been able to get my husband to go shooting with me, so I took full advantage of posting these pictures to show you what I actually look like out in the field. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that I can keep hubby interested in coming out with me. He really is incredible behind a camera. 💕😚🌹💕

    1. Oh, Bless your Heart, Catherine. Thank YOU! Me, teaching? Seriously? I never even thought of that. I am self-taught with no education behind me except what I have learned myself. If I am teaching, Hubby will be my first student. (smile) LOL

  4. Gorgeous shots, Amy! I loved them, as I tend to with all your posts…haha. But I gotta say that’s some sweet equipment you’re working with! You make a great pair. 😉 – Jen xXx

    1. Aw, Jen, bless you for this awesome comment. I have not heard from you for so long and it is just so good to hear from you! You have been following me almost right from the beginning, so you have witnessed the progress I have made with my photography. Little by little I am getting the equipment that I feel is truly necessary for where I am taking myself with my photography Journey. Only someone who understands equipment would recognize the incredibly powerful equipment I am using right now. And for that I do thank you! So many people are taking pictures with their cell phones and classify my photography as clicks. I make sure I correct them telling them my photography is a heck of a lot more than a click.. LOL And as for hubby… We will be married 35 years and we still bump heads! You would think by now we would have ironed things out! That laugh is on me! 🤣🤣🤣

      1. Absolutely. I see the progress in your work, and it’s been a pleasure to witness your journey – both the spiritual and funny aspects. Haha.

        I’m always here, silent but close. I see you Ames! Keep on it. 😉

  5. I have visions of hubby sitting in the car seat looking like one of those cute little hedge hogs with stickers poking out everywhere…Thanks for the laugh. If hubby is a Manuel kind of guy, be patient as he is now having to figure things out on the fly. Thats tough. We all learn in our own way. I wish schools would understand that! Some need to hear, some need to see and some need to do…We are all individuals….Great capture of the snake( I do hate them) so it was kind of yucky looking at it in one way but in another way they are graceful and at times quite pretty. I much prefer the fuzzy squirrel! Glad you got part of the trip accomplished. Rain coming back soon and now they are talking Nor Easter! What the heck happened to autumn? Take care AR…Hugs…VK ❤

    1. Oh I totally understand how hubby learns, dear friend. He has had this camera for 3 years so my patience only runs for so long. He’s had more than enough time to get his nose into the manual and to learn about this camera. LOL That being said, it was really nice to have him come with me on my walk and as a result, he is really beginning to exhibit excitement for his camera. We are going out again this week probably to the same park. I also intend to try to get up another post sometime this week to show his and her photographs of similar images of what both hubby and I took. No promises on that though, because I have no idea what this week will bring. But I will try!

      As for the Nor’easter… That gives me pause for alarm because you getting snow your way means we will be getting snow within the next four to six weeks here. At least that is what I have seen from past experiences. Many if not most, of our trees, are still fully leaved and still green. We cannot afford to have a heavy snowfall on account these trees will sustain great damage. I hope you are having a wonderful day and I really thank you for this wonderful comment. It makes me feel all fuzzy inside knowing that I gave you a good laugh. Much Love to you, VK! 💕😚🌹💕

    1. Dan, this is my favorite park. The energy plus the beauty brings such calmness to my spirit and healing to my Heart. I’m going to encourage Hubby to keep on coming with me! Keep fingers crossed I succeed! 😁

  6. Absolutely gorgeous fall leaves – I love them covering the path in your first picture and the one with some leaves floating on water beside the log! I am so thrilled and smiling that your husband accompanied you this time 🙂 It is such joy and fun when they finally begin to see our perspective haha. And the animals!! I think they just come out of the woods to ‘candidly’ pose for you and you shoot them so flawlessly!

    1. Thank you thank you thank you for the compliments! My husband has been a tug of war to get to enjoy Nature and his camera with me …. I’m really going to continue to invite him to go with me each and every time I go out. And about those animals … (smile) you are just too cute. I have to do some quick thinking due to my camera all set up for landscape plus working with special filters not suited to wildlife. Gotta be quick on my feet like a cat. (another smile) Bless you for this comment, Pragalbha. As you know by now someone accused me of being hard on hubby to which I HAD to go for a walk to calm down. Some people do not read correctly if at all, or they read so fast they don’t get all that is written. Sorry. I was not hard on hubby … he’s had four years to know that camera I bought him. Much Love to you, dear friend. *Thank you for listening.* (((HUGS))) Amy 💞

      1. You are very welcome dear Amy with all my Love 🙂 It is often impossible for others to truly know the dynamics of a relationship. I am glad you took a walk and could calm down. I celebrate the joys that become available to us.

      2. I absolutely agree with you regarding relationships. In order to understand you’ve got to step in somebody else’s shoes. I’ve learned to give a wide berth and have a lot of Mercy when it comes to other people. And as you saw from today’s post, I do stand up for myself and I say it like it is in a diplomatic way yet firmly. Oh yes Mother took care of me again today. I am so grateful to Her! Sending lots of hugs and kisses you our way! 💋💝💋💝💋💝💋

    1. Maybe you didn’t catch my last paragraph but hubby has had this camera for 3 years and he is just not willing to learn about it because it is not a film camera. Oh no, Michael, I have given him more than enough time to learn about his camera. LOL Hopefully this week we both are going out again and this time he will use what he learned in our last walk with him. 💕🤣💕

    1. Takami, I’ve been only trying for FOUR years to have this man as my photography buddy. Just lately he has shown interest in his camera I bought him and I’m running with it. In fact, tomorrow I am canceling an appt. I have because he expressed he wants to go out shooting tomorrow. Heck yeah! He’s still bemoaning the fact he cannot use his Olympus film camera (the LOVE of his life) and is just not too happy with digital. Finally, though he seems to have gotten the bug for his camera and I plan on lighting that fire. LOL BIG HUGS to you, dear friend!! 😁💞

  7. Oh how I feel ya. Beautiful Autumn images, Amy. And I do understand how heavy that apparatus is. Mine is a regular zoom and my photography addiction has played havoc with my right hand. Arthritis has set in with a vengeance. It is the way I hold it for extended periods of time. And the jewelry making…and the art…and the….🙄
    My hubby would still be at the entrance looking at a map of the trails…

    1. Hi, Cheryl! I’ve actually gotten used to the heaviness of my camera. I take herbs and supplements to address my inflammation and for the most part it is bearable. The joints of my hands are swollen due to the years worth I’ve put in working with my hands. As long as I can still use them, I do!
      As for hubby …. sometimes I need to put a rocket under him to get him moving. The second walk we just had he was trying to figure out how to change his f/stop. I just about growled …. not now … we just don’t have the time! He managed to find out what to do. I’ll have a post coming soon that shows “his” pictures and “my” pictures. 😘

      1. Mine doesn’t shoot except when I turn my camera over. But he is a grand “spotter” for me. He just often interrupts me while in the middle of a desired shot to show me sething else. 🙄I look forward to those photos.

    1. Aw, thanks, Julie! I agree Hubby takes great shots. He hasn’t picked a camera up seriously in probably about 20 years. The “bug” has lately bit him (again) and amazingly he seems to have left right off where he stopped. I’m working on a post now that compares his shots to mine. Walk 2. 😉
