Through the Lens Weekend


Through the lens I see and feel the fun in life. ~ carol

An 'Asian style' brush sketch of angel fishes. A 'fish town' girl has gotta have fish!


Signs of Spring showing up on Cape Ann MA with the light casting differently on my plants. 6 Weeks to Spring some one wrote on a blog recently. That is doable for us New Englanders. Right?


Reflections in the downtown window on Cape Ann MA ~ a fun '2nd time around' store with wonderful selections ~ Here you see the 'furs' since until this week we have been in the Tundra.




You might ask ~ Why is this a 'top shot' ~ Guess it is in the 'eye of the beholder' but the kid in me just had to include a 'fun and playful' shot to 'lighten the January blahs' ~ No? Yes?




None other than 'ArtMuse Dog' in the sun reflecting about that 'black thing in my hand pointed at her' ~ She is just so photogenic I can't control myself. Of course, I am sure she is saying 'isn't it time for a snack' or aren't we going for a walk? Get off the computer! Pets are so loving and loyal.








Huddled in the Cape Ann MA fog yesterday on my deck again ~ must be some warmth there or a stopping off point to 'meet the gang'. Ya think?

  1. Hello Carol. Visiting here on Fridays is filled with such richness. This weeks haiku is poignant and a strong statement of truth. Sweet doggy is ever so adorable. You can't take too many pictures of her.

  8. Your yorkie is a sweetie and looks quite cozy in the sunlight. I don't always understand haiku but yours is easy to see the underlying meaning.

  13. Very nice post. Love your little fishes. And yes, here in the northeast, we are due for a real winter yet. Snowing softly now and it is beautiful. Ok, just looking out there, it's coming down much faster than "softly". Deep breaths. We'll get through! Aloha
