Saturday Morning Post


This week winter unofficially arrived with colder temperatures and even some hail.


A tow truck barreling past us through the rain.


On the way home last Sunday we met with a snow squall 
that sent a few vehicles off the rode. It is amazing to me
how some people decide to drive in these conditions....
why they decide to go faster and not slow down is
a mystery to me.


Ron was driving and he did a great job. 
This area was at a higher elevation and thus the snow.
As soon as we were at sea level again, it was bright and sunny.


Hey, I LOVE colour!


See! And who could resist that gray background!


Yesterday Sophie met up with a dog-walker and his pack of 10.
She had a ball! She is in the centre with the stick in her mouth.


We can't wait for our new library to open in May 2014.


What did I tell you about a gray background?!


Sophie (middle brown dog in back) and the 'pack'.


Sophie never misses a chance to pose.


I'm really liking 'city-scape' opportunities.....with a tweak here and there.


A great Halloween shot!!


'Red' means STOP!


A well-deserved drink at the 'grotto' in the park.

  1. Looks like a great week of shooting! Love the architecture of the new library. Love the Halloween shot - is too bad that people find a graveyard scary, I always thought them a peaceful place. Gray skies - Bleck, interesting in photos though, right? I cannot imagine keeping track of ten dogs, two are hard for me and they can't leave the yard. Have a nice weekend, Jim!

    1. The fellow that 'walks' these dogs is incredible...he is the alpha leader and do those dogs listen to him! He makes it look easy, Sharon.
      Good weekend for you too!

  2. Once again Jim fabulous photos. Back when I lived in New York I found driving in the snow very hard to adjust to.

    1. I bet you did, Davine! A lot of snow blows up that New England coast and inland.
      Good to see you and I suppose your visit home is almost up?

  3. Another great series of photos! And you're right about the drivers, I don't get it either--Driving in snow makes me a nervous wreck,not because of my driving but because of everyone else's. Glad you were safe, and I hope you all have a good day!

  5. Looks like Sophie was having a ball with her playmates. what are those little buildings that are built into the hills?

    1. Hi Kathy. Those little buildings are remains of an old British fortress at the park. It overlooks the harbour and therefore was a strategic position to make sure any 'unwanted' ships (mainly French ones! I hope my ancestors aren't reading this!!lol) tried to get into the harbour.
      have a great weekend!

  7. I don't miss dodging people who don't know how to drive in the snow. Sophie looks so pretty and happy with the pack around her.

    Love,
    Janie

  8. I bet you don't Janie! There are some CRAZY drivers out there!
    Sophie just loves being around other dogs....as long as she gets her own way!! That's just who she is!

  9. Sophie is so cute and I bet she was happy that she got to play with some friends. Your wintery shots are great, I feel cold just looking at them!

    1. Sophie grew up with lots of dogs at her 'day care', so she usually fits in well...as long as she isn't challenged!
      Yes it starting to get cold here now...Br-r-r-r-r!! Good to 'see' you Hayley-Eszti!

  10. Lots of fun times in these photos! That Halloween picture is great. And you actually met with a dog whisperer! What fun. Sophie must have been delighted. Imagine handling a pack of 10? You better be good with dogs!

    1. Hi Martha! I had fun 'doing' them. Steve is our local 'dog-whisperer'! And is he good with dogs. Sophie runs right up to him to get his 'pat'.....most of his dogs know her now. He makes it look easy...but it isn't. You have to be very in-charge and consistent and in total control...or else!

  11. Talk about red highlights, that truck took my breath away. And how neat to run into an entire dog pack! I know Sophie had a ball. Great photos that I hope will inspire me to learn to tweak mine just a little.

    1. Inger, I think you would have fun tweaking your photos.....give it a try. I think you may be surprised at what you will get.
      We run into this 'pack' regularly and Sophie is always pretty good...if not (which she can be on occasion) Steve the dog-guy will let her know with one word and Sophie will step back. All the dogs listen to this fellow!

  12. Love the creative way you play with color. That cemetery shot is cool.

  13. Another round of incredible photos Jim!! I really love the photo of the library- it's an incredible building.

    Sophie is one lucky dog-- she has more social outings in a week than I have in a month!! So much fun for her!

    Yes-- winter is upon us-- here too. I'm so sad about it:(

    Love
    Vicki
