Atalaya in Black and White


I've taken many photos of Atalya both inside and out but thought that I would try black and white for a change.

My Little Chickadee


Stormy Seas

Just about every time that I went to the beach in SC the red flag was flying. Even though the skies looked clear the ocean was very rough.....makes for beautiful photos.

Triptych

Well, this isn't really a triptych which is artwork on three panels but it does have 3 views of the Redbuds at the park. I took a similar photo last summer of sunflowers.

Spring!

 Lovely Redbuds at Lower Huron Metropark
  1.  Flooded

 The park is often flooded at this time of year. The Huron River overflows it's banks throughout the park. Some places the water was up to the road and in the area above, I could see fish jumping in the pools. On the way out of the park, a man was fishing off the road.

 Note the Kingbird sitting on the fence.....
 Wow, can't even tell where the river is.....water up to the bottom of the bridge.



Three flowering trees along the bike path....note squirrel on the fence. I love when I don't notice things like this until I see the picture on my computer.

Happy Mother's Day to my Mom

This year, in August, my Mother would be 100 years old. I think of her often, not just on Mother's Day. I miss you, Mom.....miss your kindness and wise counsel, your advise and all the info that you passed on to me over the years. I still think that I can pick up the phone and call you....too bad there is no phone in heaven.

Bluebird

Don't know why Bluebirds like to perch on the head of statues. This is a very narrow statue of Lincoln and there is always a Bluebird ready to sit on his head :-)
We are having a very depressing day today. It rained and stormed all night and is raining still this morning. I was forced to go to Tim Hortons for a doughnut to cheer myself up. Feel bored and restless. I had hoped to go to Lower Huron for the Redbuds, which are in full bloom right now. That's what I need, more flower pictures. It is always a beautiful sight to see as the Redbuds are planted throughout the park.
