It is nice to see couples or partners of any sort.

Recently I watched these ducks have a morning bath, then swim away together.

And I watched these two bunnies chase each other around the yard.

Lastly, I was walking with a hiking group and saw this couple enjoying a beautiful day.

If a frog hops in the woods, do you hear it? I did…thanks to the dead leaves, but I almost didn’t see him!

This week’s photo topic is a good one: Inside. There are so many ways this could be demonstrated I will probably do more than one post!

But I will start with this one. My cat Aimee likes to go inside her “tunnel” to play with her toy.

This week’s topic is Beyond.

I chose a couple of oddball photos, not the prettiest or most artistic, but I think both are examples of the observer looking beyond the subject in the foreground.

Down the street from me is an old farm with many different kinds of animals…not necessarily typical farm animals in the U.S. Their pen is right on the street, so if you are walking by you can stop and look at the animals. Although the goats and sheep are typical, the emus are not, and in the background where the white building and red door appear, there are exotic birds, perhaps white peacocks? I can’t see what kind they are from the street, but they have huge white bodies and you can sometimes hear their unfamiliar calls when you pass by.


The other photo I chose was from last summer. As I was driving down the street when I saw an antique Ford Galaxie in front of me. I was happy when the light turned red and I had an opportunity to snap this photo. The traffic lights do not make it the most artistic shot, but I think with the road stretching out ahead of us, the viewer looks beyond the car to the rest of the wide intersection.

I started this blog in 2012. My original plan was to post rough draft poetry snippets with some photos. Once I started participating in the Weekly Photo Challenges, it became almost ALL photography. I hope to mix it up more in the new year.

For this challenge I looked through my posts for each month and chose one photo. Some were part of challenges and some were not. In the meantime, I am grateful for the Challenges; they led me to meet a lot of  wonderful people and find a lot of wonderful blogs!

This week’s challenge is a tough one for me — not because I am not a thankful person but because it is hard for me to express it aloud. I’ve always felt that as soon as I verbally express my thankfulness, what I’m thankful for will be taken away somehow — as if, as long as the important things stay secret, they will stay with me forever — like quietly watching a bird or a butterfly extends the beautiful moment.

What I am most thankful for is life itself — for the free things we can all enjoy: nature, art, and moments in time –these are the essence of life.

Together says family to me. I recently saw this mother goat and her babies.



The second photo shows a “family” of pigs as a sculpture.
