A Photo a Week Challenge – Still Life (sort of)

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

Typically a still life is a photograph or painting of things like bowls of fruit, vases of flowers or bottles of wine. My still life photos include fruit, pastries, bread, seed pods, a sand toy and a very still butterfly.

Smile of the Week – August 12, 2019

….thanks to Trent’s World for hosting Smile of the Week

Last night as I was leaving the lawn bowling club I was awestruck by the full moon over the lake. It definitely brought a smile to my face.

Lens Artist Challenge #57 – Taking a Break

….thanks to Travels and Trifles  for hosting this week’s Lens Artist Challenge

Last week my daughters and I took a break from city life and spent four days at the cottage with our dogs. Frances (my dog) and Olive get along very well despite the large age difference (10 years). I’m very much a water person and love living by large bodies of water, both at home and the cottage. The cottage is on Christian Island in Georgian Bay which is part of Lake Huron. We had a wonderful time swimming, playing with the dogs and trying to put together an impossible 1000 piece puzzle of the moon.

During our stay these two lovely ladies put together the new barbecue while I read the instructions. After it was completed Josie made us a fabulous dinner on the barbecue. I do all my cooking outdoors when I’m at the cottage. Great food, lots of wine and spirits (but not too much) and time spent with friends and family; I can’t imagine a better way to ‘take a break’.IMG-3177

When it was all over Frances needed ‘a break’ from all that running and playing on the beach. She is after all 12 1/2.
