A SHUTTERBUG EXPLORES ~ 82

Another blog week begins on Cape Ann MA.
We have had a rather foggy week and then a day
with temperatures in the 80's and then the next day
back to the high 40's. We are linked with
photographers, poets, sketchers and artists.
Topics range from our world, abc, thankful, fences 
and more. Come 'set a spell' and enjoy the views.


(Scroll down after you comment (thanks) ~ 
you will see the list of blogs we are linked with
this week.)

(I have also included a 'title' for each photo so
you will know the link it goes to.) 
Thanks for sharing your time with us.

there it hides a well.' 
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery







Our World Tuesday ~ 

'A foggy day' in Cape Ann MA

It is not the lovely sunny weather but the fog has
its own beauty. It was fun to try and photograph.
Along with the fog, we have a fog horn to listen to
which some people don't like. It is a comforting sound
to me and then it becomes 'white noise' after awhile.









Ruby Tuesday Too ~ 

Twilight time on Cape Ann MA recently
with its rosy sunset creating a mystical quality
for the night.






ABC Wednesday ~ 'Q'
 Q is for Quirky,
 
quixotic, and makes for a real quagmire to 
decide what type of clothes one should wear for the weather
here on Cape Ann MA
Amazing fog made for great photos ~ but sure is a challenge.



Watery Wednesday ~ 
A wild surf on Cape Ann MA ~ nature is sure interesting here.
New England weather is true to the phrase 'if you don't like
the weather well, wait a minute ~ it will change.' 







Thankful Thursday ~ 
Thankful for some signs of Spring on Cape Ann MA. Yet the weather today feels like Winter and some of the flowers that bloomed were short lived due to the variability in the weather.
The Farmers Almanac from what I can understand is predicting a very warm and rainy Summer. ~ fun ~ yikes! 







Fences ~ 
Another fairly common sight on Cape Ann MA ~
wrought iron fences and piers with the wooden fence.
So double your pleasure with two fences for the price of one.
Enjoy ~ 








Sky Watch Friday ~ 

Skies on Cape Ann MA have been so varied this year.
Weather is so unpredictable. Yesterday it was 80
something degrees and right now it is cloudy and cold.
How is your weather?





Haiku My Heart ~ 
Haiku and a foggy Cape Ann MA Harbor Photo for you.






Paint Party Friday ~ 
Working on another mixed media collage ~ Will probably change this clay face, though, ~ Creation is composed of
paint, specialty paper, artist canvas and clay.









'A Critter in the House' ~

We are sharing our home with a woodpecker or maybe
more ~ Heard the noise and came out to take this photo.
Don't mind; but do wonder how much damage is being done
to the house. Once the 'nesting season' is over will have it
cleared out and blocked up ~ Any suggestions?








My 'favorite' Critter ~ 

A closeup of 'my best friend' ~ on Cape Ann MA
or anywhere.

    Oh another thing we have in common... there is a foghorn just out of town here too! Not needed too often, but I quite like when it is sounded. There can be something... blanketing... about fog. Huggies to you and Zoe! YAM xx

  3. Love the shadow shot in that sun puddle!!! And your Ruby sky. Oh and there is nothing more pretty than fog. I do so love it.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yes, I too enjoy foggy atmosphere and can understand that, to an extent the sound of a fog horn might be comforting. Thank you for dropping by Carol

  5. I love those foggy shots - there's something so mysterious about it. Have a wonderful week!

  6. All beautiful photos - as usual! - but the fog is very special.

  7. Love your foggy photos, Carol! We had lots of snow this weekend but its already melted as the temperature went up quickly again. Woodpeckers can do a lot of damage, so once the babies fledge get that hole repaired. I'm not sure how to keep them away again next spring? Hope someone can give you a suggestion.

    Wishing you a happy week,
    Ruby

  12. Fog has its own buauty indeed. Love your photos of foggy sceneries. Twilight makes such a beautiful scenery, too. Stunning photos!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Beautiful collection of pictures. 'Fences' photo is #1 for me.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Enjoyed the different views of the Cape this week especially the foggy ones.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Love your misty moody photos. It's mostly bright sunshine here. And it would be a good idea to clean that out and repair it. If it's not damaged, maybe just some screen across the opening would deter them next time. Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  16. What a beautiful area, Carol. I love the fog, too, and your blossoms are gorgeous! Your "best friend" looks like a sweetie. Love that shot!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I really enjoy the foggy pictures. I don't see that here in Nebraska like I did when I lived in Georgia.

  22. Beautiful foggy shots, and the combination of a fog horn would be very atmospheric. The temperature has shot up here this week with a lovely 21C today.

    ReplyDelete
  23. make sure to get rid of all of the nest, repair the hole and depending on how determined the birds are, you might have to clad that area with metal. but you can try nets first. there are all kind of ways to try to keep them away but don't use anything lethal because depending on the laws there, you could get into trouble.

    ReplyDelete
  24. oh and placing food they like away from the house, can sometimes work, but that can backfire if they think the place is a good place to stay because of the food :p

    ReplyDelete
  25. I enjoyed them all, but my fave is the blossoms. It's such a great time of year.

    ReplyDelete
  26. So who does the REAL work, you or the canine?! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Lovely post! I am fond of foghorns.

    ReplyDelete
  28. ...I love your fogy days.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Beautiful photos! I hope the woodpeckers don't do too much damage. I had that problem years ago, but I can't remember what I did to deter them.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Gorgeous scenes from your neck of the woods and I always love to see your pup! So sweet! Thanks for linking up this week and I hope to see you back again next week!

  34. We too have been having extremes. Low 40's then high 90's and we are still mucking out from all the wet. Your fog shots are ethereal and I can hear the fog horn through your words... I think we all need to harken to its call... have a beautiful weekend and touch that sweet Zoe's nose for me.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Nice start on the mixed media for PPF!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I hope you soon get unstuck from being run aground! Happy Friday!

    Oh my.. a house pecker!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I like the mixed media piece. I don't know that you need to change anything. Your photographs are awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a fun mixed media piece! Lovely photos too. I don't know anything about how to handle it, but how sweet of you to wait until after the nesting season is done.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wonderful job photographing fog Carol -- I don't usually love it (I like things to be clear!) but you make it so beautiful and ethereal -- next time I experience a foggy day I will try harder to see the beauty in it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Stair-Expurey's quote knocks me out.

    ReplyDelete

  58. love the mixed media creation! About the woodpeckers, your State wildlife agency might have some advice. Otherwise, Cornell has a good bird website that might help.

  63. You do have to cope with some extreme weather in your beautiful Cape. That fog is amazing, if you're going to get 1/10th of the heat we have been getting in Asia then you're in for a hot summer! Our rains have not started yet! Hugs to you and Art Muse dog.

  64. That Thankful Thursday is particularly lovely. I am thankful you shared these beautiful images!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Beautiful photos, Carol! New England weather sounds a bit like the Aussie Melbourne weather. They say it can have four seasons in one day.

    I don't think I've ever heard a fog horn used in real life but I have liked it when I've heard it in movies.

    I'm glad you are letting the woodpecker stay until after nesting season. It would be such a shame to move them out now.

    Zoe is adorable, as always.

    Sweet Angel sketch!

    Have a lovely week ~ :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. lovely post, so many pretty things!

    ReplyDelete
  67. What a sweet watching over us angel. Awww. And your fog photos are beautiful in their own special way. I just enjoy coming here and look forward to see what photography you're posting for the week, too! :)

  68. Hello, I love the foggy scene and pretty sky captures. It is awful the woodie chose your home for their nest. Cute shot though. Your sweet furbaby is always adorable. I was away for two weeks and I am so sorry to be late commenting and visiting your post. Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!
