A SHUTTERBUG EXPLORES 3

'And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you; because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
~ Roald Dahl





A Shutterbug will be exploring Cape Ann MA this week with her camera and her assistant as always. We do look for 'the magic' and sometimes it appears when we are seemingly not looking. What a gift. What treasures nature offers to each of us.



We start our 'blogland' week on late Monday afternoon for Tuesday and then add a post each day. Hope you will make a return visit and share with us.

      AMD the adorable explorer! ... in OZ they 'comb' the beaches because of risk of danger items being left by undesirable elements. You know; glass, needles.... sad but true. Weekend huggies. YAM xx

    1. Glad you like my little doggie ~ she is a cuties and a joy to have around and she too will turn her face from the camera many times ~ Thanks!

      None of my photos are 'photoshopped' ~ they are all 'straight out of the camera' ~

  54. I know I've been here before, but your posts are always worth a second look even without additions ... But I'm sure I was here before you added that wonderfully mysterious footprints in the sand one. I love that! It feels like the beginning of a novel , or the cover shot!
