Photography and Poetry Wed and Thurs.


For ABC Wednesday ~ 'I' ~ Ice and Snow every where on Cape Ann MA
For Walk and Click ~ Cape Ann MA beach after the snow storm
Carpe Diem Haiku ~ 'remaining snow'

'spring, remaining snow melting.'
For Rurality ~ In between Cape Ann Ma Snow Storms
Cape Ann Sunrise ~ for Cool Click Thursday

'Q' for Alphabe ~ Queen's Heavenly Sunrise on Cape Ann MA




Well, between New England getting yet another snow storm and not being able to get on the internet; I found myself without my routine. So I got creative and sketched, painted, did a pastel emotion painting, cleaned, shoveled. Waited not so patiently for Verizon to get their act together and get a new modem to me ~ Took them a week! I was like a 'duck out of water.' How soon we become addicted to 'things.' ~ What 'thing' do you miss when it is not working?

We are linked with these creative bloggers:

Wishing you the best in each day.

  2. I agree, as much as I have made my life more simple without my computer I am a bit lost, I hate to admit this but without our sirius radio I also would be lost!I embraced simplicity but I enjoy technology!

  5. The snow is lovely. But it will melt - and when it does, it gives life. :-)

  8. Beautiful shots and haiku. I like computer breaks but ones of my own choosing. I go nuts when things aren't working and I want them to.

  9. The INTERNET can be a respite in a snowstorm - if the connection is working!

  10. At lease you got a lot done and took some lovely photos while waiting for the modem. I guess I would miss my computer the most if it weren't working.

  11. Are those cottages in the distance? They're quite charming in the midst of all that space. Glad you're back, Carol.

  12. These are such lovely creations.
    You are good with words too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I miss my computer the most when we have no connection. I can read, paint etc but that machine has become part of my daily routine. Such is life.

    ReplyDelete
  14. We had a modem go out with Verizon once too. What a pain. Sounds like the computer break gave you a creative opportunity, tho!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Good to see you back online, and glad the snow is melting--at last!

  16. This looks like real winter! We had some snow this morning at 8 o'clock, but now at 1 pm it's gone already.
    I looked up Cape Ann MA and found it in the north of the USA. But it's a bit confusing as Wikipedia says: Cape Ann includes the city of Gloucester, and the towns of Essex, Manchester-by-the-Sea, and Rockport. It all sounds very British.
    I think that you live in a beautiful part of the USA!

  17. Beautiful pictures. We are the same way over here on the North Shore. I can't wait till the weather breaks.

  18. Lovely pictures, enjoying them very much, we don't have snow. Thank you for sharing your window on the world. Glad your back online. I miss my brain when it is not working :)

  19. When to power goes out. I keep switching the light switches even thought I know the power is out.

  20. You always have so much eye candy to look at, a person could never get bored visiting your blog...have a great day.

  21. Hi! Nice rhyme of your Haiku. I like your Haiku very much. It's good that you are able to use your internet again. Wishing you a wonderful day.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Those are really lovely photos and I love the feel that I get from each and every one of them Thank you so much for stopping by my humble space.

    Take care!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Very pretty.

    I feel like a duck out of water w/o the Internet.

    And when the lights go out I sure miss the water. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lovely photos. We had problems last summer. It seemed to happen every Wednesday, so frustrating. I would go to McDonald's just to use their WiFi.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Lovely shots! I especially like the first sunrise shot!
    I'm addicted to my computer so when we lose power or something goes wrong I'm lost!

    ReplyDelete
  26. A winter wonderland! Although I sympathize with going Internet-less amidst storms! The break in routine makes one feel off-balance, but sounds like you put your time to great use.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Absolutely gorgeous pictures !

    ReplyDelete
  28. Lovely shots, but we do need spring, don't we?

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. (Returning your comment from the Rurality Blog Hop!)

  29. lovely pics and haiku! I especially liked the first shot! just superb!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Lovely winter shots, the footprints in the first make we want to jump in and follow them. We had spring last week and now we are back to winter with snow too.
    They are upgrading our local exchange on Thursday so I'm hoping it goes smoothly but I suspect it won't from the subtext of the message, grr.

  31. There are two things I can't live without, internet and photography. Exceptional photography I must say, as I noticed some really good use of shutter and focus settings on the photographs which I learned over at shoot digital pics like the pros that helped me relate to the settings with which some of the photos might have been taken. :)

  32. power. we lose it a bit up here and it is so boring and cold...

    ReplyDelete
  33. It makes me so angry when internet is not working, I can't stand it.
    The snow can't make me happy anymore, I have seen that white stuff to long now. Can't see the beauty of it now, I want green!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Your photos are stunning! Love the cape ane sunrise...those lights and darks...amazing! xox Conny

  35. It's all very pretty. I especially like the first one. It looks like a postcard. I can't imagine living where it snows or is so cold during the winter. I've lived in Texas and Florida my whole life. (Thanks for visiting my blog, too, btw. Take care and have a good week).

    ReplyDelete
  36. I just love all these beautiful pictures! It's such a pretty winter scene. It's scary how much we are addicted to our Internet. (at least I am)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Beautiful! I love snow and the second photo - magical.

  39. Love the border effects you created in these images ... very peaceful. Oh how I know the "not connected" feeling. When I switch phone providers I was without a phone for 24 hours and you would have thought I'd been sent to Siberia!! LOL Thanks for playing at Walk and Click Wednesday!

    ReplyDelete
  40. These are wonderful shots! I especially like the first one, but I'm also very taken by that golden grass, too. Nice "light and shadow" quote.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh, gosh, I go crazy when I can't get online. Your photos are beautiful - it sure still looks like winter there. Visiting from Walk & Click Wednesday.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love how your border melts into your lovely pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I especially like the Cape Ann Sunrise photo. Beautiful work as always and yes, we've missed you. :)

  44. Glad you're back in blogland with your wonderful photography! And yes, I'm off like shot to the nearest internet café when power fails here!

    Best wishes

  45. great images, as always. the snowy scene is just lovely. as for computers, I am fairly lost without one, so hopelessly addicted, I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love that light on the water.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would be like a fish out of water without internet for a day, let alone a week! Yikes. Too bad you guys got some more snow. But spring is around the corner :) I did enjoy seeing your snowy photos!

    ReplyDelete
  48. What a stunning selection of scenery

    ReplyDelete
  49. Love that first photo with its blue shadows!
    I'm nuts without my computer and the TV if the electricity goes out (which it does on our side of the street during a storm, but not on the other side... go figure)!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Lovely series of images... and I like the color and texture of the dried grasses... a beauty all their own... Thank you for joining in 'Rurality Blog Hop #6' Hope to see you next Wednesday for #7...

    ReplyDelete

  55. The thing I miss most is my memory when it's not working, which happens all too frequently these days!

    Closely followed by my computer.

    ;)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love all the photos. I think the borders you put there makes them more beautiful. I'm trying to catch on my I's on ABC Wednesday. Thanks for the visit.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Wow. These are really great photos.

    And your writing is, as always, sublime.

    I get pretty frustrated with this whole memory thing. I'm trying a vitamin D therapy but don't see much improvement yet.

    Not sure if I can remember when I started, though.

    Sigh.

    Thank you for linking!

    A+

    PS. I love the way you manipulate your photos!
