A SHUTTERBUG EXPLORES ~ 26

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!

  1. Happy Spring to you and the AM pup! Beautiful light, beautiful shadows. Happy dogs. Talent shining in your haiku and art ... And we fell in absolute love with New En glands stone walls and fences on our travels.... So I loved that picture!

  2. super photos! I want to go to the beach too! Artmuse dog's friend looks like a Coton de Tulear-cute. I guess by your haiku you got a bit of snow for Spring? We got really lucky and missed out this time:) Beautiful sketch too. Have a great week Carol!

  11. I saw a beautiful moon set this morning. The moon was reflecting some of the golden sunlight that was trying to gather in the sky. A sight I won't soon forget. Your little Art Muse looked so sweet standing there with her new friend. A cute couple. Your art page is very uplifting. Thank you for sharing. Have a great week.

  27. Hi Carol, I didn't know how to contact you other than here so... here is a link http://writersalmanac.org/episodes/20160322/ This poem reminded me of you and your sweet little muse. I don't know if it would interest you but since you can't read a lot at A Writer's Almanac Garrison Keilor reads poems almost daily. You could just listen to what he reads. Namaste.

  38. What a wonderful variety of beautiful photographs from your part of the country. Namaste to you, Carol, as I soon head back to India for a five month stay. Since my 21 year nursing position was chopped, along with several hundred city/county of San Francisco nurses in 2009, I can't afford San Francisco full time. I love travel, though, at 71, it's not as easy as in my youth.

  44. I love the joy and fun smiling from your sketch. It has me thinking of being 5 years old. :-) Your sunset reminds of the snow on the Sierras in California.
