  1. The " Nelly" photo is so beautiful. I would like it on my wall! Have a good weekend. We have sunshine here this morning, but it will no doubt be raining before the day is done.

    2. I have dragged the photo onto the " desktop"…not sure what to do next! I shall ask the husband . Thank you .
      Clear blue skies this Monday morning here 25 miles north of London…looking forward to the Monday walk with friends and dogs at 9am. Hope you have a good week Jim and Ron, and Sophie of course.

    3. Hey Jim,
      I hope that the auras have dissipated if not disappeared. I love the graphics of the covered bridge pic and the softness of the daisy composition. Beautiful!

  4. You have outdone yourself this Saturday, my friend! You have some wonderful pieces here! My most favorite is Ron and SD on the boardwalk in the fog. I busted out laughing, because I know exactly what that feels like! We're having an uncharacteristically grey day here; everything is wet, but it's not raining or misting ~ just air heavy, heavy with moisture. Of course, Ron being Ron is another favorite, along with the photo of him and SD on the hill! The photo of the bridge in Falmouth is amazing! Such powerful lines and perspective, and the cobalt glass ~ wow, what a magical pop of color! As for those barns, talk about texture! I can feel their rough, weathered surfaces as if I were running my hands over them! The lovely shapes of the delicate flowers, the striking form of the Bluenose, the wet, chill fog filling the space in the boardwalk photo. There's also intrigue in this collection ~ It took me a minute to figure out what the reflection photo was, and suddenly it snapped into place. It takes a unique eye to nab that with a camera! You are a true artist my friend ~ you paint with light and I love the results! Have a good one!

    1. Oh Louise I thank you for your observations and encouragement! I wish I had you as a teacher back in the day! How lucky all of your students were to have had you......such a positive force in their young lives.
      Looking forward to seeing you on the 29th of July.

  5. I have some cobalt glass bottles at my kitchen sink. I love that pop of blue. That photo of Ron and Sophie on the hill is wonderful - the light and the expression on her face. The reflection shot on the wet beach is one of my favorites this week, Jim.

    1. We have cobalt in the window above our sink as well.....it stands out!
      Yes, that one of Sophie and Ron is a favourite of mine. Sophie has really settled down over the past year or so, and appears to be more reflective now in her senior years (if that is possible for dogs to experience).
