Love the light reflecting on the harbor on Cape Ann MA even in the winter:
for Sky Watch Friday link.




Tablet Rock on Cape Ann MA ~ renders the establishment of the Dorchester Colony on 1623 in bronze and historically this park was visited by ladies and gentlemen dressed in their Sunday's finest with parasols and all. Lovely park enjoyed by many now. A piece of Our World for Our World Tuesday Meme link.




Haiku for Carpe Diem Kai pilgrim journey ~ Temple 52 ~ ''Taisan-ji ~ devoted to the Buddha of Compassion ~ Since my belief is Taoism I chose to write about it with the haiku.





Cape Ann Harbor MA ~ This is one of those photos that I took in both black and white and color ~ it some how seemed to render itself to both ~ for Black and White Wednesday link.




Q is for Quality, Queenly Dog on the Cape Ann Beach even in Winter for:

  25. Hi,Carol. Nice captures. I like your first photo very much. Humility is very important character for Japanese people. I also like your angel's photo and the Haiku very much. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete

  28. Looks still very cold at your place ! Love the picture of the queenly dog, lol

    ReplyDelete
  29. In black and white, I pick up the tree silhouettes (which you know I love!), the light on the water and the ruggedness of the rocks near the sea. In color, the sky is, in fact, the star! Love that you shared in both. Also...I see a day trip to cape Ann to visit and, perhaps, to meet you (!!) in my future!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. No one has ever accused me of being a dog person---crazy bunny lady, yes---but not a dog person. But when I scrolled that Queenly canine into view my heart actually skipped a beat. Adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love your shots! And the quote... I really need to remember that!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Terriers are so cute in little sweaters. My neighbor use to walk her little Terrier named Dolly in the winter wearing a pink sweater. She looked so adorable! She was also a silly dog, as she would always bark at the big dogs that walked by who made her little attention or without so much as a mere glance. I love all of your photos, as always. Cape Ann is a beautiful harbor community. If we ever get back up that way, then we may have to veer off course to see your neck of the woods. ;)

  38. Love the pic of ArtMuse Dog -- the browns and greys along the beach match her perfectly!
