Through the Lens ~ 2nd Weekend in March

Through the lens I see, at times, 'shades of grey'. ~ carol



It snowed again today on Cape Ann MA so somewhat limited in Photo walking.
ArtMuse Dog was put to work and she was very curious about what I was up to. She had
also just been groomed and had her St Paddy's Day bow and glued on earrings.

This house and turret caught my eye as it seemed to be built on top of the front building
roof. Yet, believe they are two separate buildings.

  19. The 2nd haiku is excellent. It has that required 'twist' at the end, which is supposed to surprise the reader. Most white people haiku is pseudoku! Well done.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Powerful haiku Carol... I can feel your words like the force that cracks icebergs and sets them floating... thank you for these photos and your sharing here and with me today... have a beautiful weekend!

  22. The poodle. Perhaps a liitle competition for AMD but not a lovely mover or such a sweet smile I guess? Have a lovely weekend despite the continued snow.

  42. As usual, your post is a feast of delightful visual images! Can't decide which one I like best, I think those penguins are adorable but can't beat your puppy in a St. Patrick's Day bow for cuteness!

    ReplyDelete

  46. What a wonderful post Carol ... those photos are gorgeous. The haiku are well composed, but that painting of the pinquins (I don't know if I have written that correct) has stolen my heart.

    ReplyDelete
  47. What a wonderful post Carol, gorgeous photos and wonderfully composed haiku, but that painting of the penquins is stunning.

  52. That grass poodle is very lifelike. Nice capture of the pampas grass but every time I see it I chuckle because it is a weed and will take over everything if not checked.

  53. Such a long winter. Art Muse Dog was beautiful in her St Pats Day finery!
