THROUGH THE LENS WEEK 67

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
~ Harriet Tubman





We are sharing this week with these creative bloggers:


We post for the week but at times will add some photos, haiku or art links ~ Enjoy your visit ~ Rest a spell and relax into the moment. Each photo is just that 'a moment in time'.



Monday

Fireworks over Cape Ann MA Harbor on the night before the Fourth ~ with a touch  of blue for  sharing with Blue Monday.








Tuesday

A 'Buck Moon' over Cape Ann Harbor MA ~ a Blue Moon (2 moons in one month) will follow towards the end of the month.  Sharing with Our World Tuesday.






Wednesday

Cape Ann MA geraniums flourishing in the sunlight for Black and White Wednesday with a touch of color ~ I just couldn't resist ^_^



Thursday

Hardy Geraniums on Cape Ann MA  for 'H' for Alphabe Thursday




Friday

Haiku for you and sharing with Haiku My Heart on Friday



Friday

For Sky Watch Friday and Scenic Weekend ~ Cape Ann MA ~ Harbor in Manchester-by-the-Sea







Saturday

'Pondering' ~ I could live without all this company coming and those loud noises! (Fireworks)
For Saturday Critter and Camera Critters sharing.










Sunday

For Sunday Sketches ~ my motivation or desire to paint or sketch seems to wane more than being active. Hopefully, I will continue to pursue this activity as much as I do photography. I just want to play and explore and create watercolor art focusing on simplicity.




'Best in Show'

Doesn't she make 'napping' look so inviting? ~ Now I know where my motivation goes ~ Napping!





We are wishing you delight in each day. xo

Your posted comments are a treasure to us. Thanks!

  4. The fireworks are gorgeous, but very loud. Our dogs were scared of them too. Have a great week, Carol!

  5. Beautiful as the fireworks are, I agree with the little pup, that the noise is not so nice *grin*. Lovely week by all counts.

  6. Annie hated the fireworks. The neighborhood was like a war zone. Unnerving. I find painting difficult during summer. Just too many distractions in the garden.

  7. As a Pisces I am drawn to your watercolour, your fish are joyous and colourful if a little boney!!! Keep looking for your painting mojo. I can see it's there, just waiting for the right moment to burst forth from the little nap it's having!
    Have fun

  9. Hi Carol,

    Dogs suffer at this time of year with all of the loud booms.

    Isn’t it fun finding blues to share? Thanks for playing today.

    Please consider returning and leaving a comment for me.

    Happy Blue Monday!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  33. Poor little doggie-- we had three dogs at the home where there was quite a spectacular fireworks display. One of the Scotties was paralyzed with fear. I really felt sorry for him. PS-- nice photo, as none of mine turned out!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hello Carol, I love your moon reflection and the pretty fireworks. Your flowers are lovely. And your watercolor is great! Artmuse is always a cutie and a favorite of mine! Enjoy your day!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wonderful images. I like fireworks.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Fireworks and furry friends do not mix! I just hate the fireworks. My neighbors dog disappeared in the rains a few weeks ago. I was sad and he was returned home today! A blessing. I heard locally 50 pets were picked up by local animal control agencies. Only half have been returned to their owners. So sad. People just do not think of their pets in storms and this crazy fireworks chaos. even our cats who are indoors hate the noise.
    Your photos are so lovely. I am so glad I stop by. Thank you and have a beautiful weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great shots. I didn't get any geraniums this year. Or last for that matter. I miss them.
    Thanks for sharing. Have a great Friday.

  46. What fun photos these are Carol! I love the fireworks and the full moon next to each other, both splendid displays of night light! Your haiku made me think that every spark of light was a kiss from beyond. I love that image that your haiku evoked for me! And yes, I would love to curl up with that little sweet heart and take a nap! Have a great weekend Carol!

  52. Good Morning, Carol! I am so happy that you linked up your sweet Art Muse doggie. Wishing you a happy weekend!

  53. Love your photos, as always, Carol. Lots of new hotels open now on Jekyll. Wish we could have connected, but maybe next time we will. A few summers ago, we rented half of a duplex on the beach for a family vacation. It was definitely dated, but comfortable. I could do some investigating for you this fall, if you like.
