A SHUTTERBUG EXPLORES ~ 50

And so begins another blog week with many blog links
~ Enjoy.



Cape Ann MA is transitioning from Summer to Autumn
We are never sure which season it is ~ Mother Nature
will let us know soon, I am sure.

For Our World Tuesday link ~ Cape Ann MA
has had some amazing skies due to the variable weather
 thus we are not quite sure whether it is Summer or Fall ~
Sure makes for some great skies, though.

  9. I never tire of seeing Art, she is sooo pretty. Those little lobsters look really good. Mrs. Jim and I thought they were Louisiana 'slug bugs', or crawfish to outsiders.
    Have a nice day and week, Carol. We miss you at "Alphabe Thursday" but some, not all, of the gang are at Theresa's "Friday Hunt" where we are now in the second go-around a"M" for this week.

  13. I'm not a lobster person, but of course I haven't had a Maine lobster so maybe that will change when I taste the Maine variety.

  45. Here in Los Angeles, we're not sure if it's summer or winter either. I love the simplicity of the birdhouses and colors in "Nesting Time". I'm always drawn to mourning doves when I se them. They have such sweet faces. Finally, I understand the delight you get from your little dog. Dogs are wonderful "critters".

    ReplyDelete
  46. What a lovely haiku with the shadows and the paintings are lovely too. I don't think I could ever tire of your lovely Zoe...

    ReplyDelete
  47. Such big lobsters! The lobsters I see at my market are much smaller than yours.
    All are lovely and I like the Painting"Nesting Time". Have a good new week!

  50. I'm so late this week! But such a treat nonetheless! Never. Never. NEVER tired of seeing little Zoe!!!! You could do your whole week on her and I would swoon! Loved your haiku, (we both did shadow and light!), your etegami are a delight, the "walking the line" quite powerful Carol! I know we are responsible for our own happiness... but you always make me happy getting to walk through your lens to take in the beauty that surrounds you and is in you! XO
