Boulevard Flowers on Cape Ann MA




The boulevard here on Cape Ann, MA is getting more and more beautiful with the addition of wonderful flowers enhancing the American Flags. There are two photos here of the flower areas. My last photo is an abstract of a photo I took on my deck of the tree reflecting on the deck ~ a bit abstract but think you will get the creative idea.



J is the letter for Alphabe Thursday and for me it is the Joy I find in Nature.

  3. Hi Carol, I enjoyed the peacefulness of your quiet harbor. The flag in the distance held special meaning, yet I loved the shadows on the deck. I, too, am fascinated by shadows, so many unique shapes and willowy images asking to be captured by the eye of the lens. But like a butterfly, their visit is fleeting.

    Thank you for stopping by and commenting on the sneak peek of my book cover. I left you a message and do hope you visit again.

  16. Carol, what beautiful pictures - especially love the one with the flowers in the foreground. DH bought a digital SLR about a month ago and am trying to learn how to do the basics. I need to get into the creative groove and try my hand at something like this cool shot of yours! Thanks for stopping by. Now your GFC follower! ^.^
