Saturday Morning Post


This is what I noticed over the past week:


Two vintage stools that I reupholstered this week. 


Tree-lined Bell Road in Halifax.


My sister-in-law's birthday dinner this week at 'Edna' in Halifax.
She is second from left and my brother Dennis at far end smiling.


Slowing down near construction in city.


Street that leads to Point Pleasant Park (Sophie's park) in Halifax.


Sophie sniffing out some 'beach debris' at the park.


Ron taking 'the high road'.


Left-over little tributaries at low tide.


'This means I want one of you to throw Mr.Orangie'........please?


A couple enjoying a beautiful day at the park.


I'm ready when you are!!


Curve in the road.


A couple of rocks in one of those tributaries at the beach. (SOOC)


Inspection.


Couldn't help but notice this strange acting character at the beach!! (oh, it's Ron!!)


A little cutie this Scotty is!


Until next week....I'm outta here!

  1. What a great series of photos, the "slow down" is that where the new library is going to be? My favs, tributaries, and the curve in the road, not to mention guys and gals as well, well, one gal!!! Greetings from Jean, and again, so many thanks for your words, healing from all those miles away, truly, I thank you all over again.

    1. Actually Jean that is another location in the city, there are quite a few construction sites around town since the new mayor was elected over a year ago....a very good thing!
      I really like how you personalize your replies. Thank you.
      I am happy that you got so many responses of support at this very sad time for you and Hugh. Every little bit counts.

    1. Hi jaz! The original covering of the stools was pretty beaten up, so new vinyl was needed.
      Yes, Sophie LOVES being outside as much as she can get us out!

  3. Great photos and treatments! Ron has the ability to always "take the high road," doesn't he? Or is that the "HIGH" road (photo 2)...

    1. Me too, Jeanne! Halifax is noted for its trees! You would have a 'hayday' at the beach....so many photo ops!!
      What cold in Texas? Can't be! Somethings up! Stay warm.

    1. LOL! Debra, we said the SAME thing! One of those 'just right light' and exposure situations. That is exactly how it looked through the lens.

  7. Nice pictures and photo treatment here,
    especially your street views and those two about low tide tributaries.
    Did you shoot your SOOC in the RAW format?!?

    1. Hi Bruno. I shoot in RAW all the time now....find it easier to get what I want. I am starting to really appreciate those 'doctored' street views.....can do so much with them.

  11. By the way Jim, it is never too late to become a chef... I'll bet you are one for sure anyway. Probably a very good cook.

    1. I have been 'cooking' since I was a kid Jeanne. I enjoy it and find it really relaxing and makes me use my imagination too.

  12. Wonderful set of photos, Jim! I really like the picture of the couple; it looks like they are having so much fun. Hahaha...had a good laugh with 'the strange character'; I didn't realize right away that it was Ron!
