  • Beach Combing | Opposites

    Beach Combing | Opposites

    Most of the time beachcombing involves looking for small treasures that wash up along the shore. However… that was not the case during this little jaunt to the beach. I was searching on a much grander scale for things that were totally different from or the reverse of something else. The following images reveal the outcome of my search for concepts that demonstrate this week’s Lens-Artists photo challenge… Opposites. Thank…

    Favorite Finds

    Forecasting Fall… If we pay attention, Mother Nature sends clues that She is gearing up for a change in season. A parade of my favorite fall arrivals is starting to march through our garden.

Blossoms, seemingly immobile- appear to be at rest, await pollination. Motion, a phenomenon in physics- well applied by Nature. Lens Artists Photo Challenge: #212 Motion

Myriad of hues tiny feathers reveal by refracting natural light. ~Jane Wilson Hummingbird shows us how to re-visit the past for the purpose of releasing it instead of being caught in a permanently backward flight pattern. It also helps us to see that if we step aside, we may see our life differently. Hummingbird teaches us to transcend time,…

  • Soft


    My husband has a soft spot in his heart for Wood Ducks. When our daughter gifted him hand-cut cedar planks the intended project was clear… a Wood Duck house. The boards were cut and assembled early in the winter to allow the cedar home to have proper time to cure of its soft aromatic scent . A plug in the doorway was kept in place to protect the new dwelling…
