Trying to capture something so elusive as 'light'
is what keeps the photographer going.

And Ron never gives up.

My Slant On Things

Last evening on MacDonald Hill around 5 PM.

Loved all those diagonal lines I could see through my camera lens......
with my camera tilted of course.

Either those are two ships waiting for entry into Halifax Harbour
or, most likely, they are cruise ships leaving the harbour and heading
to the next port of call.

Contemplative Monday

I just finished watching a recent interview with Pema Chodron.
She was on Oprah Winfrey's show 'Super Soul Sunday'.
It really shows Ani Pema's 'lightness of being', I feel.

Here is the link if you wish to learn a little more about 
this compassionate and wise woman, Pema Chodron:

Saturday Evening Post

Life in our corner of the world......

Crossing lines...

Two crows joy....

Tight squeeze.

On the trail with Sophie, she stops at this path to the beach each day 
in the hope we will take it.

I like chairs! 

From my 'perch' at the shop last Sunday......this person capturing the view.

'Should we or not?'

From MacCormack Beach in Eastern Passage looking towards the cities
of Halifax on the left and Dartmouth on the right.

I like tables too....

Ron and Sophie along the water's edge in Eastern Passage.

Fish plant at Fisherman's Cove in Eastern Passage.

Heading to fish plant to unload.

In a row.
