This Week, Through the Lens


There is that moment, just before the sun gives up and sinks below the horizon...if you are quick and have your camera ready, you can capture the clouds soaking up the very last of the sun's energy.  And then it's over..the clouds return to gray. You think to yourself- I will never see that again, but you will.  


 This is someone's driveway off of the highway that I travel frequently.  I can't tell..is it supposed to be Sasquatch?  What a fun sense of humor!  It definitely catches your eye as you drive by, so being  nosy, I just pulled on in for a closer look.

Tiny details..
  It makes me happy that I have learned to see things so differently- ordinary weeds become beautiful works of art in my eyes..but were always exactly that..
I just never noticed.  


Last, but not least..

My husband (who is a diabetic) just completed a 102 mile ride for the
ADA Tour de Cure on Saturday. This is the selfie that  he sent me right before the race.   I am so proud of him.








It's been a week of happy discoveries, special moments, and fantastic accomplishments &  full of things to be grateful for.  I'm sharing these with you 
and with Kim at:

  4. That sky is so dramatic!!! And I love the sasquatch!!! Weeds are one of my favourite subjects - they are less uniform than garden flowers... Plus, they stand still so I can focus!!

  24. That first picture and accompanying words are exactly how I feel when I take a moment to watch the sun sink beneath the horizon, my favorite time of day, except perhaps when the sun sises again at dawn.

I notice the tiny details more and more these days and am always looking up at the sky. Your sunset is an incredible sight and I have enjoyed all your photos. My McSqueezy is one adorable little guy.

  36. I love that time in the evening, and you are so right, it's gone so fast. I've noted too that I appreciate natures small wonders so much more now when I see life through the lens. Your dandelion shot is a perfect remind of that. When I first glanced at the Sasquatch shot i thought you edited him in! What a great find as it makes us all laugh!

  47. Congrats to the bike rider!

    There is a large metal T.rex in a garden I walk past on the way home from work - I think it may have been made by the same person as the 'big foot'!
