Through the Lens Weekend

Through the lens I see how we are all connected in this world.




Love the regal look to this Cape Ann MA sea gull and the downy looking feathers ~

Sunrise, rain, snow and light through the window on Cape Ann MA recently for
Weekly Top Shot link




'So tired from 'shoveling snow'. Is it Spring yet? for Camera Critters link.





Thinking 'Spring' on Cape Ann MA even if it is February still.
 for I Heart Macro 2 link





A 'Zen' type sketch for Sunday Sketches link. 



We are wishing you love, light and peace in each day. xxx


We are so delighted to have our 'bloggers' back and treasure your posted comments ~ Thanks so much.

    1. Nature provides the cloud ~ I was paying attention at the time - a practice that I try live ~ another way to say that is more trendy is 'Living in the NOw' ~
      Good to see you Alicia and thanks for posting delightful comments and great question ~ Happy Week to you ~ xxx
