Not easy to pose puppies

"We help out a lady with shots
for the puppies and the spaying of the Mom.
They paged me to
"bring your camera and come to the clinic"
Two girls helped with the set up.
Then.....the pups went home. " Sumner

Another Journal Page

These are thoughts that popped into
my head while sitting on my back porch ...
These types of journals help to sharpen your
mind for creativity and awareness
of your surroundings you might not be
noticing. Your work will imporve
in many areas as will your life.

So I won't get lost

A journal entry with a map of the area

just outside my doorway--It may be too

small to read the notations which add

a lot to the spread.

Red Hip

The wild rose hips are looking tasty--but
looks can be deceiving---this must be one
mean snack !

Catching a Fly

I saw this fly on the fence post
and doubted I could
get a shot of him as
he was moving around continuously...
so I got in front of the
post and waited for him
to come around the corner....
sure enough he
did.... and then turned
around and smiled.....

Dropped Hose

I liked how the dropped hose forms an
interesting design--what do you
see for design in your yard?

I took this photo two year's ago at
The Vines in Groton Long Point and just
now noticed the cushion which goes
with the expression quite well !

Hey, Mom, can we come out?

Taken at a near by house--I got several shots
with one, two, three or even five cats
at once..I like this one for the interaction
of the owner and her pets

On The Fence

Another Vermont scene--I know when I take
a shot to remember a place it has
too much in it to be interesting and a good photo
---this is better with a
center of interest, however you can not tell
where it is.

Festive Window Scene

Sunday Aug 17 02
Since I've been doing this for 8 months
now I can't recall if I used this photo
before. It's in Vermont and my friend,
Anne has stopped the car and let me out so
I could take this photo.

Basket Eye

Here is another back porch item--an very weathered basket that must have been out there 4 years now---and just yesterday I decided
to photo it this way. It amazes me that I haven't
already done this.

Chime Design

Out on the back porch, two old battered
chimes take on a cool look with a
different camera angle

Want some?

Since I am busy with an online class I
am not getting this done as early as
usual. I just saw this growing out
under the birch clump---picked it...sliced
it and sauted with onions with a dash of
soy sauce and honey---wow!
does it ever taste odd--aarrrrrggggggggg...

Out on the lawn just now.

So the guy on the left asks
"Are we six of one or half a dozen of the other?"
then the middle guy says,
"Makes no difference bird brain!"
Which makes the guy on the right say:
"What a bunch of turkeys !"

Open Barn Door

It's not often this barn door is open but
I love seeing through it, to the trees. I had to back up
and take the shot quickly and am happy I
got it.

Talk About Old Times

Here's two Vermont chairs waiting for two
friends to sit a spell----now that the wash
has been taken down and a pitcher of
cold Margaritas will be served.....

Sad News

The call came this morning, from my
daughter Kim....her son, Sean Soucy, lies in
Intensive Care following a car accident
over by the lake--he was Lifestared
to St Francis Hospital where he is
now in coma mode and time is
now slowly passing waiting to
hear of improvement
in his broken condition. Two
other people, I don't know, were also
hurt and are in Hospitals.

Two Whatzits

Saturday August 9th 02
Here we have two "whatzits" for you to
name--one photo by me, one by Sumner

Under The Tree

It's not often I spy a good chair
buy---this one happens to be free
and has been washed frequently
by the showers we
have been having. The grab bag
in the seat is a bonus!

This small painting sold at the small paintings
exhibit last night at the
Kent Memorial Library in Suffield, Ct
The show lasts for the month of
August, and I have a total of
five paintings on the walls...
so if you're in
the area, please stop by................
If I recall correctly, the day I took a photo of
this cow, she was the one that
stayed close to my car and we had a
staring contest of sorts.

Card Cat

Wednesday Aug 6 2008
The card my sister, Joanne, sent me
for my birthday has stayed by the
computer for awhile as I just like
to see that cat watching me. I have been
painting by the computer for the past week
so the brushes are nearby.

The Old Man's Bureau

As I looked into the room of an old Irish
house I was, of course, attracted to
what was on the old bureau top.
I think probably,
Angus finished with his washing up,
put out the candle and retired early,
for tomorrow they would leave
at dawn to bring down the dried
sod. Sure and it must be ready by now....

I spy a heron

An unexpected thrill for me to see this
heron off Furnace Rd yesterday---he's quite
far back and is the only shot I
have been able to get of one of these
handsome birds.

Destiny Rides.....

One of the smallest cow gals at the
party last night with the great
name of Destiny...

Early Sunrise

This is very early in the am in Eastport Maine.
The tide is either coming or going here in a cove.
In a month I should be seeing such sunrises
they have, that are the earliest on the east coast for a
town to experience.
