A Photo a Week Challenge – Beauty

….thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting A Photo a Week Challenge

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I find beauty in a multitude of things; my family, nature, the beach, the mountains, the foothills and art. I’ve chosen three photos because I couldn’t just pick one. The first is from the hills in Assisi where our son and his beautiful bride were married, the second is of my husband and our granddaughter taken two and a half years ago and the last one is the beach on the west side of the island where our cottage is.site-of-the-wedding-28236456190-o

Friendly Friday – Dreamy

….thanks to Snow for hosting Friendly Friday this week

The task is to post at least one photo that depicts the concept of ‘dreamy’. For me, right now in the middle of winter here in Toronto, dreamy images are ones of warm waters, sandy beaches and sunshine. Let me take you back to summers at the cottage.IMG-3092

A Photo a Week Challenge – The Great Outdoors

…thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting A Photo a Week Challenge

Nancy’s photo of a broken down wall in the middle of nature reminded my of the lighthouse keeper’s old home on Christian Island. The lighthouse has been automated for years and the home is a pile of rubble where nature has take over. Trees are literally growing out of the centre of the stone cottage.P1060752
