  1. I do love your haikus although I'm totally unqualified to comment on them! Don't know how much more qualified I am to comment oh photos, but at least I do understand how good you are at them!

    The reflection shot through the rainy window is really great...the warm light looks so inviting on such a gray chilly day...like a welcome home!

  36. Carol and Art Muse, you have put together a very impressive post. Your cat is brave. Mine is a wuss. I think he was the one they named cats scaredy cats after. If anyone comes to visit us he runs and hides till they leave. When hubby moves too quick he runs till all is still again...He is the same color as your tabby though.

  40. Wonderful work! Gee, it looks VERY cold there where you are!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow, you're so prolific, Carol! When do you have time to eat or sleep?
    Love your girl with the blue hat, too :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I like your reflection picture : it is such a good symbol of winter : inside cosy and warm with the lamp and its orange light, and outside icy and grey... Very inspired, like your haïku !

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your black and white has so many different lines. Nicely spotted.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I really enjoyed your haikus. But the picture of the cat reminded me of our cat, Sam. How I miss him some days. Have a wonderful weekend!! Cathy

    ReplyDelete
  45. Just wanting you to know that I stopped by to look and read. Nothing to say except perhaps I love your very simply expressed photos of your artwork, especially the human portrait. I also love the Black and White photograph very much. Cloudy gray sky days are seen in Black and White, not only by the camera lens, but by the observer as well. Soothes me to live with this kind of sight.

    Peace

  46. So moodlifting photos! The girl and her cat are so adorable too! but the best are the flowers in the beginning! Hope spring will come soon ;) xox Conny

    Have a nice weekend!

    ReplyDelete

  50. That shot of the slush on the window with the winter scene outside makes me want to snuggle up under that lamp with a blanket, a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. Very nice. :)

    ReplyDelete
