Photo Dump

“A photograph taken today is a lifetime of yesterdays preserved for all the tomorrows.”
– Author Unknown -

The photos I take document my experiences. They preserve where I’ve been and what I’ve seen. When I flip through them, I am transported to that fleeting moment in my life that has been recorded before it slipped away forever.

Below are some images of preserved moments.

Don’t toot your own horn...especially when it’s attached to the side of a boat.

“How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?”
Try saying that three times!

There's always something interesting to photograph along country roads.

Smile, you're on candid camera!

OHMYGOD, there’s a ghost in the window! Oh, sorry, that’s just me...

Pirate invasion! ♪♫ They'll pillage and plunder and rifle and loot ♫♪

“Look, ma, no cavities!”

What lies deep within the hidden forest? Enter and find out...

An abandoned and dilapidated home on a hill located in Amherst Island, Ontario.

It’s all in the eyes...

Happy October, everyone!

  7. Back again! I've been catching up on your post ~ busy out of town weekend! Your autumn as a time of reflection post was thought provoking. I wish I could puzzle through to the answers of those questions! You never stop missing those you have lost. Have a happy day. I've got breakfast with a friend and a birthday party for another friend this evening ~ This introvert will need a day alone tomorrow to recover! LOL

    1. They are by far my favourite subject. If I move slowly and quietly, the animals aren't startled as easily, and it gives me a chance at better images.

  9. I really liked the Amherst house photograph. I stared at it and at first I just saw the house, obviously doomed to decay and tumble down, then noticed the vegetation reaching up to swallow it, and then the tree in front, which is actually two or three separate trees which seem to be either dancing or vying or merging. And somehow the trajectory of the photo changed from a story of decline to something much more active and forward reaching.

    1. Mother Nature inevitably claims these places. So while the house is doomed, the vegetation is thriving!

  18. I like how you see certain details in the middle of everything. It's like finding pure notes in a room full of noise.

    1. I believe that my introverted personality really helps me notice things I otherwise wouldn't. I tune out the world and really look around.
