Hopeless

…..it’s not what you think

Up at the cottage when the residents say we’re ‘Hopeless’ they are not referring to the state of affairs in the world, their own state of mind or any situation for that matter. Hopeless at Big Sand Bay means that we are fogged in and can’t see Hope Island which sits just north of us.

When the fog breaks up and the sun reappears Hope Island returns to us. In life hope is always there. Sometimes hope is all we have and even in our darkest days we sometimes have to push through the darkness to find it but when we do we can begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Water, Water, Everywhere – #46

thanks to Jez for hosting Water,Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2020/09/21/full-speed-ahead-water-water-everywhere-46/

As many of you know I am always close to water. I live next to Lake Ontario and my cottage is on Georgian Bay. This past weekend I closed the cottage for the summer. I took one final walk on the beach Sunday morning and was greeted by the beautiful mist that was coming off the lake. Clearly the water was warmer than the air.

Lens Artists Photo Challenge – Negative Space

thanks to Amy for hosting this week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge https://shareandconnect.wordpress.com/

Negative space is the area around the main subject. It is usually empty, subdued, peaceful, calm, and isolated.
