At The Shore


Sunday at the park was alive with activity....both human and critter.


We were walking and I noticed this scene on the grass with the ocean in the background.


Because of the bright sunshine, the figures were all more or less silhouetted and stood out.


There was constant motion in this area and I stood at one spot on the main path, 
and snapped away.


We have met this lady with her four black standard poodles 
which provided wonderful silhouettes.


They were joined by what appears to be a greyhound leaping about.


It is interesting how the shore attracts us all to it on that first bright sunny day in spring.


Time to get out of our hibernation and join the outside world once again.


It may be a stretch, but I was reminded of a 'Seurat'  (click) painting, 
which drew me to photograph this series.

    1. Thanks Ivan. It is a very well-used park. My brothers and I went to this park in the summers as kids and would spend the entire there.

  2. I don't think Seurat is a stretch at all!

    1. Maybe not as sunny, but along a similar theme.

  3. It looks like it was a beautiful day, which certainly explains all the activity. Great images, and there's no denying that those are silhouettes of poodles!

    1. It was a nice day Martha and people were walking and playing everywhere. Yes, poodles are very distinguishable aren't they.

  4. Though everyone is still bundled I think you can say it's spring there Jim. No snow in view! How wonderful to have such watery scenes.

    1. No snow! We in Nova Scotia are always prepared for 'unexpected' weather to hit anytime!! Even in the summer this setting could turn in a minute if offshore fog decides to turn in towards the shore. Always have a sweater or jacket/raincoat nearby!!
      Thanks for stopping by Barb. Hope you are getting stronger by the day.

  6. What fun those doggies had!
    Yes, most hibernate, but you and Ron and Sophie sure don't! You enjoy the great outdoors all year.

  7. The photo's of the dogs dark on the blue ocean really are striking. I'm glad you're enjoying your first touches of spring.

  8. Spectacular photos, Jim! I love the dark silhouettes against the ocean blue. I actually saw that Seurat painting at the Chicago Institute of Chicago with my Aunt Louise. Thanks for the memorable post!

  9. Back again, Jim!
    I've been having so much fun catching up on all your posts! Somewhere around your Mid-Century Maniac posts, I stopped leaving comments because I thought you might not check back that far. My dearest friend Dee had a craft booth business in California for years. She stocked it with garage sale finds. Whenever I visited her in California, I would hunt for treasures with her and visit her booth. I'd give anything to do that with Dee again; but she died unexpectedly a little over 2 years ago. Dee didn't make a ton of money, but she certainly had tons of fun! I wish you the same and maybe a bigger profit!

    The photos in your hot coals/acting out Contemplative Monday post were awesome! Very effective!

    And, of course, I always love Sophie dry or soaking wet!

    Hope you are having a good week!
