ABC Wednesday ~ Letter is Z 

Beautiful Cape Ann MA before a summer storm.

Z is for zeitgeist ~ general intellectual, moral and cultural
state of an era.

I wonder what is happening with this changing
era ~ can be a bit puzzling at times.

Grateful for nature's awesome palette and living in the
USA with freedom, family and friends and most important
my little Yorkie ~ What are you grateful for today?

  1. Hari OM
    HAPPY FOURTH!!! My, but these are some mighty fine shots this week... I particularly love the 'pre-storm' moorings scene; and Zoe, of course. Always love Zoe!!! Blessings, YAM xx

  2. Dear Carol-
    Happy 4th of July!
    All your photos are grand.
    I particularly enjoyed the calm before the storm photo and Zoe's picture.
    Have a Happy Week!
    Peace :)

  3. I love your patriotic angels, your haiku, and I love your spirit. I hope the fireworks don't bother your dog too much. Ours hate the Fourth of July.

  4. Oh what really beautiful photos and art again! Can't pick a fave although I do love the "reflection" and the stormy sea-which really draws me in. Fab patriotic displays too. And I do adore your angel art-and your angel Zoe:) Happy 4th to you and yours!

  5. Beautiful sky shots! Have a safe Independence Day.

  6. Happy 4th!
    Hope you are having a great week!

  7. Happy Independence Day to you too Carol. I hope you and your little muse enjoy the festivities. I love that picture of the before the storm. It says so much. These times are confusing. It shows how one person can make a difference, good or bad. We need all of our angels to help take care of life right now. Namaste.

  8. Happy 4th of July :)

    Zoe looks so cute :)

  9. Love the shadow (reflection) photo!
    Some great 4th of July decorations. I hope you enjoyed the holiday. xo

  10. Not that long ago, I wrote that I was NOT a very zeitgeisty person. No, it is not a word!


  11. I can relate to your thoughts about the present and the future... we all have our doubts and wishes, especially in difficult and worrying times.

    Wishing you a wonderful ABC-day / -week and hopefully till next week when I may welcome you in te new home of ABC-Wednesday on http://abcwednesday.com !

    Happy Sunday Sketches #12

  28. I hope little Zoe found some shade. Gorgeous Cape Anne pre storm shot! Oliver had to decide between shade and playing with his birthday toys today and managed to do both. I guess he wanted his pool because he ended up resting with one paw in the water dish.

  29. Hello Carol!:) My, what gorgeous sky shots, especially like the moody one, and I like the Teddy picnic, and shop window display. Adorable Zoe is as photogenic as ever. I hope you had a happy 4th of July.:)

  30. Your comment came through just fine.

  31. I enjoyed your eye candy this week! The storm photo is my all time favorite of yours. Thanks so much for continuing to inspire me!

  32. I love your Shadow Shot Sunday. . .I could see a picture/painting and that is the background. Your pictures show the most absolutely beautiful place (and I have been there) I can think of. Blessings, Janet

  33. I absolutely love your watercolor angels. They're so lovely!!! :)
