A SHUTTERBUG EXPLORES ~ 51

So begins another blog week.

(please scroll down for the link you want)


'It long has been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.'
~ Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.




It was a 'cotton candy' fog this week at times on Cape Ann MA.
Here you see an island in the middle of Gloucester Harbor. Its name is Ten Pound Island ~ Legend has it that it was bought from the 'Indians' for ten pounds.

'L' for Little Soccer Pros on Cape Ann MA ~

The young girl in the chair was playing a game on her iPad while her younger brother was playing soccer. They are my niece and nephew ~ Fun watching them play ~ Despite being only second graders many of them seem to know what it was all about.  More than I can say for myself. Even Zoe enjoyed watching the game despite the autumn like weather.

Sharing this with ABC Wednesday and the letter for the week is L ~ 





For 'Good Fences' because I forgot to link up last week.
This is a functional fence at a local Cape Ann MA restaurant on an outside dock where a friend and I had dinner.

A haiku for you from Cape Ann MA

I am the only critter she has photographed on Cape Ann MA recently. Problem with back has held us up from walking as much. We are 'on the mend'. Gratefully.
Yet, I still don't quite like the camera.

  33. Always a joy to visit with you. Perfect weather for watching the game. We live in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains and we've had a lot of fog this past week. I love your "fence" photo where you and your friend enjoyed a meal. So peaceful and pretty. I love this season and I enjoyed your photos so very much. xo

  35. Hi Carol ! Thanks for your comment. A sad thing is that we will never know what the lady thought or did. I myself shall never be happy if nobody was interested in me. I like blogging for the contacts we have. I wish you a lovely weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  36. What a neat place to eat where you can watch the boats on the water. Nice Haiku, Glad you are feeling better, you little friend looks so snuggly in that shot. Also loved the shot of the Island.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's quote is great. I often say "there are times when the simplest things are the best." Not sure where that came from but it applies to so many things. Loved your post and all the photos. I believe your niece and nephew would know more than me also. Great action shots. Zoe poses so beautifully. I also enjoyed your artwork, and all other photos I may not have mentioned. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your week :)

  38. The cotton candy fog looks so beautiful! Autumn is also showing it's face here--so lovely to watch the tree leaves turn colors. My grandsons play soccer every weekend and we have been kept busy going to games. I hope the back troubles are healing well! Have a good weekend, Carol

  48. I just love where you live. So beautiful. Well your nephew and niece sure are blessed for you being their aunt! I remember way back when my boys playing soccer. Zoe doesn't look very happy. Is it his back that is out? I hope you both feel better very soon.

    Your fishes got me laughing! Too cute! Great Haiku and photos. Great post! Big hugs, Rasz

  57. The unique New England coastal fog appears again and while not obliterating the island, we have to squint to be sure it's there...Soccer and 6-7 year olds is a uniques experience whether spectator or participant. art muse dog just knows how to relax :)
