THROUGH THE LENS 21

Through lens I see a few leaves turning, can that be?

I start posting late Monday afternoon and continue to add photos and haiku all week ~ Sometimes there is even a bit of 'painting or sketching' by week's end.

  1. Wise words then and now: “Intuition is a tool” is as insightful as “hope is a walking dream”.

    Oh no - the weather bird here also mentioned the A-word. We haven't even had a summer here in Dunoon yet!!!!!!! Love those chairs. Hugs to you and AMD. YAM xx

  11. Very pretty photos. But it's too early for leaves to turn - even at our high elevations that's not happening yet. Maybe you're in for a real winter!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Loving the idea of intuition as a tool for weaving a tapestry -- very nice!
    A great post ---

    ReplyDelete
  13. Beautiful photos! It's starting to feel a little like the beginning of autumn here too.

    ReplyDelete
  14. "each day tapestry moments" - well said. have a great day :-)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Please don't say the leaves are turning already! I need a little more warmth and sunshine before my body clock can adjust to the next season. Have a good week.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Very evocative photos Carol. Those chairs could tell a story I to I think?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Our leaves are also turning... wait, make that budding... The change of seasons is upon us, no doubt. Looking forward to something new.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Lots of insight here Carol♡♡♡ Love your Haiku with Tapestry theme and the quote for the last♪ Beautiful pictures, too!
    Wishing you will have a wonderful week ahead.
    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  19. We have some cherry blossom here, so may be you did see a few early turning leaves.

  20. Do you think those rocking chairs have a story?

    ReplyDelete
  21. The tapestry of intuition---that's how I weave my life too!

  22. Beautiful pictures and loved the haiku for tapestry prompt.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Beautiful pictures. Loved the haiku for tapestry prompt.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love the pictures, love your assistant, love your lens.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I really love your tapestry haiku Carol. And well, you know your photos always take me to a happy place. LOVE those old chairs!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have the match to the rocking chair on the left (without rockers).
    Always beautiful reflections in word and image. A moment of peace from the busy day :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I very much like the intuition brought to the idea of the woven word. From this, b r autif i l word p hi ctures are created.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love the picture of the river. You're so lucky to be living in such a beautiful place! And yes, intuition.. I was thinking about that today. I use it to guide almost all my decisions in life and find that it always leads me to the right places. Love you Carol! xoxo

  29. Wonderful series. The rocking chairs are my favorite though, so glad they caught your eye.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Great captures. I like black and white photo. Thanks for commenting on my entry.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I would LOVE to see a few leaves turning around my neck of the woods!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yes, even in PA I have seen a few leaves of color.

    ReplyDelete
  33. The Essex river really looks like the kind of place where I'd like to be right now.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I like the quote with the woven textured background. Very well done.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Intuitive weaving may look like a confused mess to bystanders, but we intuitive types at least have a hunch what we're doing! ;)

  36. The pictures have a kind of old charm to them even though they have been taken not that long ago. Your photography tells a tale. Loved them all!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love when rocking chairs are placed outside to relax. We've seen a couple of leaves turning here too (unreal!). Wishing you a great rest of the week. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Your b&w photo is a great composition, well done!
    My post at: http://hanshb.wordpress.com/

    ReplyDelete
  39. Beautiful shots, and i like the b&w one

    ReplyDelete
  40. Are the leaves really starting to turn? That's hard to believe when it's so hot here. I was surprised to see people wearing jackets watching an evening Little League game in Williamsport, PA. I guess it would be even cooler up by you. I loved the B & W with the two old rockers.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Yes, I believe intuition is indeed a tool, one that ought not be ignored.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Your photos are always so lovely. I looked out the window yesterday and noticed the leaves on my neighbors elm tree seemed to be turning colors. Too hot (???) or is it that time already?! I won't complain. I'm happy to get rid of the heat and humidity, but I know not everyone will be ready for fall.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love the photo of the tapestry. Interesting selection of pictures this week.

    ReplyDelete
  44. The "little flower" is my favorite! I will be glad to see the leaves turning--so tired of this heat!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love the chairs! Perfect in black and white. Your other pics are all beauties too! Great tip with the cauliflower.... I can't stand it except raw in a salad (that's yum!) so hiding it in potatoes is a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yes intuition is important. We need to use that inner 'sight' more often. Unfortunately I think with all of the distractions of the modern world we often forget... to listen to intuition. A lovely weave.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Surely must be a few leaves turning! September is coming! Love that beautiful Queen Anne's Lace. One of my favorite summer "weeds"!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love the b&w chairs, bet they're perfect to relax in!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I just noticed a few leaves turning the other day and immediately felt sad...

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ok. the rocking chairs are dreamy...beautiful capture and edit! And I'm loving the notion of intuition as a tool that helps weave the tapestry of our lives - very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh Carol, your images are always so inspiring! I absolutely love that last shot though. Those chairs are just begging for someone to sit in them ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  52. ...and a great post for SWF too!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm liking all your entries...all the best♪ http://lauriekazmierczak.com/noon-moon/

  54. great photos! thanks for your comment at my blog. We're going into spring while you're going into fall :-)

  55. The gulls were having quite a party! Love the connections to seafaring days of yore.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love the birds in flight, awesome.. Happy Skywatching!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Such a lovely series of photos, I particularly liked the Nautical memorial to former boat builders.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love all the birds in the sky and the Queen Anne Lace.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Queen Anne's Lace is in a vase on my kitchen table. It's so delicate looking. Intuition is something we all need to tap into on a regular basis. It helps us make good decisions. I love the rocking chairs. They have a tale to tell. Speaking of tails...Art Muse Dog will always be my favorite picture. He is just the cutest thing I've ever seen.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Beautiful photography! Great gull party!

    ReplyDelete
  61. The chairs spoke to me. I once found a chair in a field and blogged about it - must look back for that post!

    ReplyDelete
  62. WHat lovely shots. Autumn is coming slowly but surely!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Innumerable seagulls in flight...stunning!

  64. Sea gulls and a lot of them almost obliterating the sky. Nice catch.

    ReplyDelete
  65. that's a great marker! Love the view of Essex River. So calming... {:-D

    ReplyDelete
  66. From one New Englander to another ~
    Those photos are "Wicked Awesome" Carol . lol

    ReplyDelete
  67. Your haiku make me think of someone who died this week. So sudden. So horrible. May his soul rest in peace.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Absolutely lovely words and photos!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I would love to slide down that slide with you... kinda like each Friday of slipping into your world and photos and what you see. Have a great weekend Carol.

  71. Your harbour looks a lovely place.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Indeed, lovely aspects in your photos and a very good quote of Aristotle! All the best!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I wondered how you managed to get a week's worth of photos and haikus collected, you're a busy woman but one who is definitely living in the light!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Another beautiful post! beautiful photos, too! Have a nice weekend!

    ReplyDelete

  77. Time must be the most slippery thing of all...

    ReplyDelete

    Also, the seagull photo was incredible. I particularly liked the haiku for Haiku My Heart. Just lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Love your two little birds, and the other critter (the tiger ride! :-)) Lovely spot.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Nice shots of the birds and yes I would go down the Tiger Slide.

  95. Oh, I haven't sketched for a bit. I did early this summer when I wanted to capture the view outside a hotel window.
    I found water color sketch pencils at a yard sale before we left and took them along. When you wet the colors they are more pastel than bold.
    But it was fun to play with them.

    Thanks for stopping by my 'begger' pieces. Seems our memories are always begging for the truth. ~Jules

    ReplyDelete
  96. The pictures are all thought provoking...made me stop and stare...poignant haiku, smart pigeons on the right side of the law, and ethereal flowers...loved the post...happy-fying!

    ReplyDelete
  97. We always need to heed intuition as that "still small voice" within. Your haikus are lovely, and scenes of water, I adore the unhurrying gentleness and inner strength of the gentle cooing doves, so happy that one is visiting my garden now.

    ReplyDelete
  98. A lovely harbour-side reflection capture Carol.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Beautiful photography as always, and happy SS to you as well!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I enjoy this post very much, Carol! Each picture demands a brief pause to soak in!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I love your variety of posts! What a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Cute rocking chair watercolor, Carol and lovely photos. :)

    ReplyDelete
  103. Wonderful. I especially love the light reflections in the water.

    =)

    ReplyDelete
  104. Thanks for the inspiring haiku and I got a kick out of the rocking chairs!
