4-8-2018–Barns and Rust

I had some blankets to toss into the laundry last weekend and decided, on the way there, that the sun was just right to stop and check out this old barn in Grand Isle with the Acadian Flag painted on it. 

Barn – Grand isle, maine

No the paint didn’t bleed!  This is just how lovely the reflection was.

After the laundry mat, I took a lil jaunt up a back road and snagged a few pics of this brilliant old truck and a few other items there.

Don’t ask me the name of this bird, he was knocked out in the middle of the road.  I pulled over, kept him close for a while and he woke up – and sat on my car for a while, then took off!

Snow, snow and more snow!

Echo is still loving the snow, but I’m anxious for the grass!

This was the snow on my windshield.  It looked wicked!

I’ve purchased these cheap focal lens – to do macro photography.  I do need to invest in some lens extensions – while the lens filters do a good job, I’d love a better photo!

I had been feeling super uninspired lately – then on a day Jules was working – I had a little bit of good light and decided to take the bull by the horns and snaps a few pics of this glorious camera a friend of mine gave me.

Driving home can be an adventure of its own.  These are the captures of an evening when the sun sets early and the colors were close to perfect.  All about Shadows and Light.

Best of January

Someone suggested to me to make a “best of” my photos.  I have to be honest, that’s a LOT of pictures.  So I’ll be doing this every last day of the month (if I can).  I went all the way back (as far as I have saved) and rummaged around in my January folders.

2016

My first time in Deer Isle, while working at the nursing home – I was there a short time – 9 weeks or so, but it’s a place I’ll definitely want to go back to again and again.

Snow Storms from HELL!

My 2nd time in Deer Isle (I just realized I spent two winters there in the last 3 years).  So many pictures to pick from – but these are my faves.

12.24.2017–Christmas Time

Echo didn’t not seem  happy that I was leaving that afternoon.  She was giving me those puppy dog eyes.

There was a weird, almost ethereal light on x-mas even – hard to capture at times.

Berries and snow!

On the drive up to the lake, that lovely light kept teasing me to take pictures.
