Saturday Morning Post


What caught my eye this week.


A few days of these jet-fighters earlier in the week.
I think they were preparing for Canada's involvement
in the 'ISIS' conflict in Iraq.
There is an air force base not too far away at Shearwater.


Small brook at the park in fall.


Moss-covered tree base at the park. Reminds me of an elephant's skin/hide.


Shooting into the noonday sun.


Contrasts on the ocean.


Tobacciana at the shop.


Sunset reflections on MacDonald House.


Do I have to go back into the car?


Leaning into it.


This 'strange' guy was taking photos of Sophie and me as we passed by.


Waiting patiently for a morsel......any morsel.


Across the hill.....


....and down. Surfing is the easy part. Getting there can be another story.

  1. Like the brook with its jewel toned leaves. Green elephant knees...
    They must really like to surf!

    1. The brook was beckoning me by reflecting light up to the path to get my attention.
      That tree trunk was very strange looking.
      Surfers are a rare and very hardy breed, Sharon. I have heard that it is mostly a very Zen experience out there in the ocean.

  2. I love all your photos, the variety, the content, the way you can make an image magical, and always Sophie and Ron somewhere...I never know what to expect but I always know I will love it, and yes if we had green elephant, I would think it was as well, wonderful Jim!

  4. Another fun collection, Jim! I'm impressed that you got such a good shot of the jet fighter. I can never catch them! Surfers are a dedicated lot, aren't they? Enjoy your Saturday!

    1. I took only two shots and this was the clearest, Louise. Then I cropped it and viola!

  5. Looks like elephant to me too, Jim.
    So surfing has something in common with riding - there's a lot of work to be done before you can get on.

    1. I never thought that two could be similar, Terry. But so true.

  6. Great shots, Jim! I especially love the MacDonald House shot. Looks haunted and spooky!

    1. It does, Martha! I will have to ask the woman who lives in the top floor apartment if she ever hears any or sees (if that is ever possible) any ghosts!! Yikes !! And I work in that house, Martha!!

  7. We lived in Western Maryland near Camp David when the 9/11 attacks occurred. For quite some time, F-16s flew over our house every fifteen minutes. I was grateful that they were on duty, but sad that they needed to be.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. Thanks for this, Janie! I never thought of them (jets) in quite those terms. Sometimes aggression is/may be the only option.

  8. I always especially like the Saturday ones. That surfer reminds me a little of a skier! I can just picture you taking a photo of Ron - as he takes a photo of you and Sophie - "what's up with that" is probably what on-lookers are saying. They probably think you're a surveillance team!
