Through the Lens ~ WEEKEND 1

Through the lens I see the 'yin and yang' of life.




(scroll down for the link you want.) Thanks ^_^



An Asian Style Brush Painting greeting card with Haiku for Sunday Sketches link.



Despite the cold, raw and overcast day on Cape Ann MA~ Our favorite ice store was opened!
I just had to take a photo as it gave such hope that one day soon it would be warm enough to sit on a bench and enjoy a delicious ice cream cone ~ for SOCC ( Straight out of the Camera Sunday) link.




I couldn't resist these as they were painted by a little 18 month old girl and they caught my eye as I went to get into my car ~ A macro photo of a sort that delights me for I Heart Macro 2 link.



The Cape Ann MA Yorkie giving the camera a very stern eye that 'she has had enough!' How can you resist that cutie? for Camera Critters link.




Mr. Sea Gull was enjoying the day on Cape Ann MA despite the cold, raw and overcast day linked with Saturday Critters.




Same windy, cold and raw day on Cape Ann MA but the high school sailing team was out on the harbor practicing. I love 'boating' always felt such delight and peace linked with:
Weekly Top Shot
 and Post Cards from Paradise.






We are wishing you the best in each day. xoxo

We love your posted comments as always. Thanks.

    Today, I was SO amazed to see the Easter eggs painted by a little 18 month old girl(^_^)v Easter is not so popular here in Japan except cake-shop etc:-) Love your eastern style greeting card as well♡♡♡ Please tell your baby don't be shy posing your camera♪

    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
