SHUTTER BUG 14 ~

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.



'Look at everything as though you are seeing it
for the first time, with the eyes of a child,
fresh with wonder.'
~ Joseph Cornell



Happy and Healthy New Year to all ~ xox

  24. Both beautiful photos ... Weather seems very strange in a lot of places this year, I think you are probably exactly right on the reason. Smiling at your 'across the pond' meme references. Between being retired and posting Tuesday memes on Monday (etc) half the time I'm not sure what day it is ;)))

  26. Beautiful lights and lovely seascape, but Artmusedog is truly adorable. What a sweetie. Happy New Year's to you and yours.

  27. Art never ceasing his warming of hearts, does she not? Just thinking of my Adi girl, now gone three years, still warms me. Same in a lessor way, our Katrin.
    Keep up the good work with the snow pictures. We don't hardly ever, maybe once in ten years, have any snow.
