Week 39~Your best shot!

This week, I had to go back a couple of weeks and pull out a shot I took while on our 2-day vacation in Maine. That trip produced some of my "best shots" ever....

First, this one taken in Perkins Cove, ME:

Which a friend edited, giving it a "watercolour" touch:

And second, this one, which I think tells the whole story of our trip in one picture:

I can hardly wait to see the other "best shots"!

Focus on Life Wk 38~A Quiet Moment

This is my busiest time of the year...I can not BELIEVE it is nearing the end of September...I have about a bazillion things to do prior to our Gala on Oct 12th (I'm flying on Oct 10th) and when I get back it'll be right into the hustle/bustle of the pre-Christmas season. 

Suffice to say, there are not many "quiet moments" in my life these days. 

Thanks, Sally, for "making me look" at at least one of them:

Sally's prompt this week was:

"A moment of calm, peacefulness, self-reflection...quiet little moments through the day where you pause, listen to your heart and breath. This week, capture a quiet moment!"

Mine? That moment where you are between WAKING up...and GETTING up...and best of all, on a sunny day!

Hope you are having a sunny day, and enjoying your quiet moments! 

No Inlinkz again this week....but you will find lots of other quiet moments HERE.

Week 37 - In Motion

Where we continue once again with Sally's wonderful prompts for our camera work. This week it was:

"Get moving and a-grooving this week! Stretch those creative muscles and capture things in motion!"

Well, I don't know about stretching any creative muscles...but this little guy made me laugh!...that's supposed to be good exercise. 

On Wednesday here, it was +44 (111 above, for you fahrenheit people) it is +13 (55 F). 

I think he's saying the same thing I was feeling....ACK!!! The water's too COLD!! 

Unfortunately, I did not see the Inlinkz code this go to The Studio Sublime and see what the others have found moving!

Focus on Life~Week 36

This week, it's all about TWO...Sally's prompt for this week was:

"There are pairs everywhere in our life! This week, let's focus on things in two's!"

When I first saw the new prompt, my mind immediately went to the Canadian Geese which we now see every day. We are right on a flyway for the geese headed to lands south for the winter, and the pond and stand of trees in the lot behind us has been a popular watering hole/stopover for them. About a month or so ago, the city came and drained the pond, probably in preparation for the development which is starting to occur there.

The geese are PEEVED. I tried and tried to get a picture of some of them overhead for this week (geese mate for life and are always in pairs) but just could not make it happen.

So~this is second choice. This view of our diverse feet, in the mudroom, always makes me laugh and know I am home.

With a little help from PicMonkey here are...pairs!
