A SHUTTER BUG EXPLORES

A Shutterbug explores the surrounding area of Cape Ann MA each week with her camera and her assistant most times.

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.

With winter coming ~ we made need to be a bit more creative with indoor photos as well.



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.




'Winter is time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and talk beside the fire, it is time for home.'

  34. Beautiful photos, as always. So strange not to see snow in your photos. The Husband's cousin lives in MA and she was moaning how warm it was. Our temps (in CA) were even cooler. Interesting times we now live in. Happy Holidays!

  35. It always looks so pretty where you live. The Christmas lights warm my heart too! Have you been having the warm weather some of the east coast has been having? I saw where it was in the 60's in NYC the other day and I didn't see any snow in your pictures. We've been having unusually warm weather too. Personally, I like it cold at Christmas.
