Some will stand alone

Like a lily in the sun

Bold can be graceful

What a nut!

Precariously poised, this chubby little stinker is reaping the benefits of his autumn stash. He seems oblivious to the elements.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue

Posted on

Perhaps a little too literal, but I honestly didn’t even consider it when I took these for the Weekly Photo Challenge.

The theme was dialogue between two photos.

 Dreams drawn in ink

Patiently waiting to

Just a short time after taking this photo from the shore of Lake Huron, the cable on this boat was my lifeline as I para sailed for the first time.

These international bridges link two different countries, Canada and the U.S.A., sharing the same waterway and sunset skies.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters (at Sea)

Posted on


Thousands of ships sail through the Great Lakes, a major passageway from the U.S. and Canada and a gateway to the rest of the world. Clashing with mother nature’s stormy seas and mazes of ice and rock, these giants along with their crew are forces to be reckoned with. They are hauntingly beautiful to watch on a foggy night and spectacular sights on a sunny day.

Letters adorned on their bow and stern tell of their origin.  Some are quite obvious while others depend on our knowledge of faraway places.

Seagulls rule the beach.  DSCF4522We can build our little castles in the sand, but these guys will eventually inhabit what we claim to be our own.

DSCF4531Poised and perched, they poke fun at our creations that simply give them new places to govern their domain.

stop that

Seagulls stay on top of things.


















Weekly Photo Challenge: Eerie

March 2011 018

Take me from the icebox to the fire

Through the window of pain

Melt away this melancholy mind

Beyond my icy veins

Kindle my convictions

Guide me to the glow

Ignite my frozen heart

For this is all I know

Drag me through the snowflakes

That vanish on my skin

Let me warm my hands

On the spirit from within
