Photo Dump

Another week, another photo dump. I think I’m going to make this convenient type of post a regular theme. If not every week, every other week. Particularly this time of year when I become a lazy blogger. Or a busy blogger, rather. ‘Cause there’s just so much to do. Like being outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather. And taking photographs while I’m at it.

I mean, let’s face it, aren’t our winters long enough that we don’t want to sacrifice this time of year indoors? Yeah. Thought so.

Okay, enough babbling. Let’s just say it with pictures...

A stunning and beautifully-maintained Victorian house in the downtown area.
My husband's dream home. If he's willing to clean it, I'm willing to live there.

One of the gazillion photos I've taken of the cutest bullfrog on earth.

A vain duck happily posing for the camera. Hey, if you look this good, go for it.

Mother Nature reclaiming what belongs to her.

My cat, Mocha, wide-eyed and bushy-tailed.

A dilapidated door that just begs to be photographed.

Springside Falls Park in Napanee, Ontario.

A serene spot we pulled over to as we headed out to the country roads.

How's this for a skylight?

Does the incomplete sign in this abandoned building we snuck into say dream or scream? Hmm...

An abandoned building in Gananoque, Ontario.

The look an otherwise friendly horse will give you if you disturb it while its eating.

Dilapidated doors on an abandoned church that Mother Nature will claim eventually.

I hope you enjoyed this week's collection of snapshots. Have a fantastic Tuesday, everyone!

    1. There are quite a few Victorian-style homes in the downtown area. The ones that are well-maintained are spectacular!

    1. I am enjoying this type of post. It's so much easier this time of year to just select random shots and share them than to write up an entire post with lots of writing! I'll save that for the winter months.

    1. That would make an incredible bed and breakfast. It's in the downtown area where all the action is...and right near the water!

  5. These are all great. But I love the frog. I'd use him for my banner, if I took the shot. Great stuff.

    1. There is a pond in the cemetery near my home and it is full of bullfrogs. That's where I get shots of these cute critters!

    1. I'd have to check my files, but I believe that image is from that institute. The whole building has an eerie feeling about it. I imagine some of its history is disturbing.

    1. You're a busy girl, Sophie, and always out there on an adventure! That's always better than being stuck indoors in front of a computer, no? (She says as she sits indoors in front of a computer :)

      Yes, that's a whole lotta house! I prefer smaller, cozier places. I'd rather less home and more outdoors!
