Winter arriving on Cape Ann MA for Our World Tues and Outdoor Weds.





'W" for Wrong Letter  for ABC ~ So 'White Lights' 'X' ~ Xmas Tree ~  for ABC Wednesday



It has been rainy and gray for the second day in a row and more tomorrow. Rather rain than snow at this point ~ Too hard for holiday travelers and shoppers to get around. Yet need to do some new holiday photography soon. Doing something creative every day fills my soul with life energy.  Hope you are all well and busy preparing for the holidays.

  10. I love your Wharton quote.

    Great variety of seasonal photographs. I'm kind of into the barren skies and empty trees look. The earth is resting right now is how I see it.

    And a double bonus with your haiku.

  31. One of the things about short days is that sunsets are never missed, nice to see yours and to hear about your creative days. We have had nothing but rain and more to come so I'm hoping to wake up to snow on the 25th.
    Have a very merry December.

  45. Beautiful photography and haiku. We've just started getting some snow. It's going to be a white Christmas for us.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Can't tell you how thankful I am to be out of the snowy and wet winters! We do get rain, but not snow and usually sunny days between the rainy days.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love the soft colors in the photos of the trees--and LOVE 'gestation ripens'!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I like your evening scene picture, Carrol. It makes for a good "E" word, evening. The picture is nice, the sunset shows red real pretty in contrast to the other dimly lit no-color atributes. My camera would call it 'red eye' and eliminate all trace of the sunset.

  49. Haiku on family right or write on !
    Thank you...gave me a smile.

  50. Family can definitely be a mixed blessing! I know what you mean about needing the snow for seasonal pics, put off taking the kids' picture for our Christmas cards hoping for snow...Ended up with what looks like a fall picture instead!

    Merry Christmas :)
