A SHUTTERBUG EXPLORES ~ 25




A Shutterbug explores the surrounding areas of Cape Ann MA each week with her camera and her assistant. We do look for 'the magic'and sometimes it appears when we are seemingly not looking. What a gift! What treasures nature offers!

  12. Hi Carol. That first sky looks so threatening. I do hope Artmusedog didn't get wet.

  13. Hello,

    Your quote at the start is very thought provoking. Most of us only look for harvest each day without sowing the seeds. We want results without effort. We want gain without pain. If there are no results at the end of the day we are disappointed and we conclude that it was a bad day.On the other hand if we put in continuous efforts with a purpose in mind we are bound the reap the benefits.

    Your photos are fantastic and each photo tells a story of Cape Ann.

    Your haiku is very interesting. In a few words you have described the transformation that is taking place all around you.

    Best wishes

  42. Love, love, love that page from your journal! Your haiku captures the changes, the transitions, in those amazing skies... Please tell your little muse that she looks adorable and that my Leo is smitten with her! I can imagine the two of them scampering about while Rusty imagines how he too can capture her heart... have a great weekend!

  43. Wow... What a cloud cover! Stunning photos!!

  44. Lots of topics to choose from. I keep a journal when I'm home at my float cabin home on Powell Lake. I've been trying to add pencil and ink sketches to my recollections, but I'm not much of an artist. Journaling has helped my writing, maybe it will help my drawing. - Margy

  45. Sometimes transitions are annoying. Sometimes they are frightening. And sometimes they are just right. I guess we take what comes, and do the best we can!

  46. Tree, flowers budding.

    Mushrooms mushrooming.

  49. Your Haiku perfectly sums up this transition season and your lovely pictures of it. (I especially enjoy seeing that because we really don't have early spring here in Florida ... and I would miss seeing it all together if not for beautiful blog posts like yours).
