Saturday Morning Post


A 'potpourri' kind of week......


Had a great day yesterday with Gaye, our blogger/FB friend, touring the city
before she sets out for a tour of the province today.
Gaye hails from northern New York State.


'Hello, all you Earthlings.....'


Found this old 'Dinky' in a box in the basement.....Ron's childhood toy.


Sophie looking very trim in her new haircut.


Approaching sunset on MacDonald Hill.


My favourite shot of the week and it was SOOC (straight out of camera).


Frog exhibit at the Museum of Natural History in Halifax.


'I am staying right here! Maybe they won't see me.'


View from shop window on Monday.


Their favourite spot on the hill.


Surfer.


Two's company.....


....three's a crowd.


Ron, it's behind you!


Ready for 'take-off'!


Catching the wave.....


Spectacular Super Moon last weekend.

  1. Lots of great pictures this week! That is some great view from your shop window, lucky you. Looks like a question mark in the reflection of the moon on the bay - cool. I enjoyed seeing the pictures of Gaye with you guys. I am sure she had a great time.

    1. Sharon, you would be glued to the window there! I am!
      Yes, it does look like a question mark! The waves made it that way.
      We had a great day with Gaye at the beach, the Hill, and the museum in Halifax.

  3. Super moon reflection is super, but SOOC, my favourite, very Monet looking print and frame? You nailed( shot/took the photo/eyeballed it to the limit) that to perfection.This could be a super-seller in the shop!!! Hugs to all, Jean

    1. It does remind me of a Monet as well, Jean. I was walking along the Northwest Arm trail and looked down to the water....there was the seagull resting on the rock just long enough to get a couple shots of it. Not a planned one at all. Sometimes these are the ones that workout the best.

  4. Lovely photos yet again, but my favourite has to be the gull through the trees…fabulous greens!

    1. Hi Frances, mine too is that shot. I shoot in 'raw' mode and most of the results come out with this 'greenish' tint.......sometimes it works, sometimes not.

  5. A great olio! That first photo makes it look so cold there... except for the warm company (and smiles).

    1. An olio it is, Mitchell. Most are our weeks are filled with a variety of events....or at least we try to make them interesting.
      It was cold on Friday morning at the beach....the ocean was wild as was the wind.

    1. I hear you Joyce! That series I took last week was perfect to capture these two together on the Hill.........sun setting, warm and breezy.

  7. Looks like a lot of fun! The moon reflecting on the ocean is beautiful. The moon shining over the water is one of my favourite things to see, it makes me feel so calm. So glad you had such fun!

    1. The moon has that effect, eh Hayley-Eszti. We do try to have fun in our outings.....and with Sophie with us, she usually entertains us.

    1. Thanks Debra. The mosquitoes were EATING ME ALIVE that evening at the beach! No wind to blow them away.

  9. Wonderful collection, Jim! I don't even know where to start. I love Ron's childhood toy. How sweet is that. And the Hello, all you Earthlings.....' Great shot! And I laughed out loud with the moon behind Ron shot. Of course, photos of Ron and Sophie always make me go "awww...". Now nice that you had a blogging friend visit. I bet she'll have a great time out there. And of course, the last image of the super moon is spectacular.

    1. I am happy you enjoyed and laughed out loud....at Ron!!
      For the last shot I used a tripod, so everything was stable. I liked how the wave made the moon reflection a little distorted. You just never know when you are at the beach.

  10. A great mix of photos ending with that spectacular moon! I always enjoy the view from MacDonald Hill.
