Photo Dump

It’s so hot out that you could fry an egg on the sidewalk. I’ve never actually tried to, but if I did, I’d probably end up with something resembling scrambled eggs. The temperature would have to go much higher for sunny side up results. But that’s fine because I like my eggs scrambled.

But I digress.

Today it’s all about photos. Here are some random shots that I gathered from various folders on my computer. I hope you enjoy some of them.

Sitting proudly on top of the world...er...tree...

Roses we spotted on one of our sunset walks around the neighbourhood.

Along country roads.

A bridge over troubled water.

An abandoned barn.

Where does this door lead to? Open it and find out...

Chained down.

Why you should look first before planting your butt down on a rock to take photos.

Reaching over to grab a snack.

Lots and lots of rust.

Tranquility by the water.

Bottoms up! Literally...

Still water.

A goose that is far from being camera shy.

One of the many birdhouses in Birdhouse City (in Prince Edward County).
I'll create a post in the future to share photos of many other original creations.

How’s your weather these days?

    1. Just an amateur, of course. It's my favourite hobby. Keeps me sane in this maddening world! LOL...

  3. Do the birds who live in the Casablanca bird house always whistle "A kiss is just a kiss"? Play it again, Sam!

  4. NICE! Your photographic eye is very 'fine-tuned- Martha. These are all gallery worthy.
    That swan's neck/head photo made me stop.

  5. I love how close you get to nature's creatures. Plus the greens in that tranquil boat scene make for a beautiful picture.

  8. Have I told you that your photos inspire my art? your Lilium 'Royal Sunset' photograph had me going. Your photos are just stunning Martha. They have so much life to them.

  9. Hey Martha!
    I liked the one on the boat on the water! I want to paint it! (Like I can paint, right.)
    Our weather has been strange, a very rainy summer so far, and July will be over before you know it.
    You might have had hotter weather than we have had, that doesn't seem right, does it?

    1. No, it doesn't seem right! But I'd be happy to switch winter with you, as well! :)

      I'm not complaining because the weather is MUCH better than last year when it was very hot and dry for weeks on end!

  10. What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever and impossible to reproduce!!

    1. That is one of the best things about it. Then you can look at the photos and remember those moments.

  11. A simple photo of a door can be so interesting. I haven't taken any in a while so I should go in search of doors. Nice photo dump!

    1. You are so right; simple things sometimes make the best photographs. Doors and windows can be very interesting!
