It was a beautiful sunset with lots of lovely clouds this afternoon.

I tried to take one with my my new star filter but it didn't come out as I'd liked.  I've included it here for your viewing.


Ok - I admit it I got a new filter today!  A 8 star filter and I had to play -- this is my "MacDougall Plaid Clock" and a treasured candle holder of my husband's.

Out To Lunch

I guess you could say we had lunch guests. They were just eating up a storm.  I could not tell what they were eating but they sure were dunking a lot!

I like the reflection in the second picture.

I just love watching them.

Hope you enjoyed my Swan Show.

Look Alikes - Posting for March 7th

This was taken in my front yard (the lake).  The ice has gone out and we have had many visitors lately.

I was going to crop this but felt it would take away from the colors around the swans.

This is the first in a series of swan pictures.

Graffiti or Mural Post for March 4th

This was part of a skateboarding park in London where many teens gathered to skate board and hang out.   Some of the drawings were pretty neat others were just nonsense.

Historic - Posting for March 3rd

The picture is of Anne Hathaway's home in Stratford-upon-Avon.  A little history follows:  William Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway were granted a marriage licence by the Bishop of Worcester. They were married at Temple Grafton, a village approximately five miles (8 km) from Stratford. After their marriage , as was the custom, Anne Hathaway Shakespeare would have left her home at Hewland Farm to live with William Shake-speare in his father, John Shakespeare's house on Henley Street in Stratford. Six months after the wedding and marriage, in May 1583, Anne and William became the parents of Susanna, the reason for Will and Anne Hathaway having to marry with such haste. The baptism of Susanna was conducted on May 26, in Stratford Parish Church. Will and his wife Anne Hathaway started their married life in Stratford. 

Metallic - Posting for March 2nd

Ed and I were in England and Scotland in May/June of 2008 and we saw incredible places.  One of the castles we enjoyed because it was furnished and showed a lot of historical artifacts was Warwick Castle.  This was one suit of armor on display.

Metallic it was!

Blue - Posting for March 1st

As you can see by my last few pictures I am into my archives for pictures because I will never get caught up at this point and I've taken some pictures in the past that I feel are worth sharing.

We had a close friend pass away and it's been a difficult couple of weeks.  On top of that, my former job has called me back to work which involves a long commute to and from so I'm putting in long hours.

The picture is from the chapel dedicated to the veterans at Edinburgh Castle.  It was a very small chapel but had wonderful stained glass windows.

I hope you enjoy the picture!

Theodore The Tugboat - Halifax Harbor (post for February 28th)

Theodore is adorable.  He takes people on tours of the Halifax Harbor.  We happened to be there during a Pirate's Day on the Waterfront, I'm sure you noted his lovely patch!

Closely Cropped - posting for February 27th

I took this at one of the gardens at Disney.  This is straight out of the camera.  I prefer to crop with the camera when possible.

Sense of Motion -- posting for February 26th

This was taken on the Carousel at Magic Kingdom.  You can just feel the motion of the Carousel as you watch the mirror.
