Thoughts Of A Thinker

  I don’t care who you are, all of us have darkness within ourselves. We exist in duality where there is an opposite for everything. We have been given free-will to make choices from every single thing contained within this dichotomy of light and dark. That is a whole lot of choices.     In … Continue reading Thoughts Of A Thinker

What????

What I saw concerned me greatly. Never have I seen anything as to what I was looking at in that moment. I asked, “Excuse me, but could you tell me what you all are doing?” I had politeness in my voice, and a smile on my face, even though I was alarmed. My question sounded … Continue reading What????

Merlin

Sunday I had just put my feet up ready to relax when the phone rang. Inwardly I groaned but I couldn’t banish that ringing so up I went to answer that phone. Good thing I did, too. Picking up saying hello, I heard hubby saying, “Amy, come quick! Grab your camera and come outside where … Continue reading Merlin

Gardens

Oh my goodness!! Editing all these pictures … whew! And then while editing I realized I had forgotten to photograph one garden that has new flowers in it. At this point, I’m not about to run and catch a snap. As some would say. (smile) I do show within my images the new flowers in … Continue reading Gardens

Time Flies

[Wilson Warbler] Where has time gone? I’ve barely been here most of the Summer. If it has not been $600 worth of plants being put into the ground by me (no worries you shall see my gardens), it has been one cat crisis after the other. And then every chance I get I run over … Continue reading Time Flies

Bath Time

I have to admit I’ve begun to believe I have the Luck of the Irish with me these days. I am stunned by all the encounters I’ve had of late that have required being in the right place at the right time. Grateful? Beyond words! I could weep for joy that seemingly the time has … Continue reading Bath Time

Wings

*Turn phones horizontal/visit blog to view FULL SCREEN* ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Attempts with new types of photography shots yesterday represented me celebrating my victory in finishing my huge gardening project. I went for a leisurely bike ride first though, after hubby so kindly put air in my tires. If it were me, I would have just gotten … Continue reading Wings

I’m Doing This!

*Turn phones horizontal/visit blog to view FULL SCREEN* ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Between the heat and being tuckered out from this landscape escapade I’ve been involved with, I played hooky again on Tuesday, taking pictures from my backyard and in Como Park. Even though I could barely breathe (NO air!) and literally soaking wet with perspiration (Major shower … Continue reading I’m Doing This!

Wildlife Break

*Turn phones horizontal/visit blog to view FULL SCREEN* ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I took a day off from all the heavy gardening I’ve been doing to go to Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve Park, taking with me my Canon camera and 100-400mm lens. Most of what I shot ended up in the trash bin. This wildlife photography is a … Continue reading Wildlife Break

Time (10 IMAGES)

  (Two great songs connected to links ⇓ you don’t want to miss.) Time has been doing some strange I’m talking weird things of late. Last week I thought was at least 2 weeks long with most days finding me not knowing which day it was. Time looped round and round as I dug and dug, planting … Continue reading Time (10 IMAGES)

Time-Out

Seems the time has come for me to be with my gardens. Why? I am redesigning many of my gardens [HOLY MOLY!], which means, adding to [buying at a Nursery] new flowers, bringing them home and planting them, thinning out existing flowers and transplanting them to other gardens, getting rid of plants that are not … Continue reading Time-Out

Growing Pains

*Turn phones horizontal/visit blog to view FULL SCREEN* ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Today I played in Ribbet with this image. It is so hot outside it is like an oven. I’m beginning to feel very restless and fed up. First the icy cold prevented me from doing much of anything outside. Then the torrential rains had me running … Continue reading Growing Pains

Right Time And Place

*Turn phones horizontal/visit blog to view FULL SCREEN* ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Being that I was working on a “budget” yesterday … possessing wrong camera body for action shots, bringing wrong lens, and having only 11 AF points which this camera body has, all this against me did not stop me from at least trying to capture this … Continue reading Right Time And Place

Deer Art

*Turn phones horizontal/visit blog to view FULL SCREEN* ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Photograph taken today at Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve Park. I took the wrong lens with me and due to the staggering number of missed shots, I will not ever make this mistake again. I was amazed by how many photographers I saw today in this park … Continue reading Deer Art

A Little Pizazz

*Turn phones horizontal/visit blog to view FULL SCREEN* ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I thought I’d have some fun in PS to see what I could do with this Rose. I gave Her a bit of pizazz and jazz. I’ve been working so hard ‘tween pruning bushes and trees (and almost slicing one of my fingertips off) and catching … Continue reading A Little Pizazz
