Photo Dump

“I walk, I Look, I See, I Stop, I Photograph.”
- Leon Levinstein -

The most important thing when I’m out and about is enjoying my surroundings, not taking photos. I stroll along with my camera hanging idly by my side, soaking in the sights, sounds and smells that this magnificent world of ours has to offer. And if something catches my eye, I stop, frame, and photograph.

Here are some of the things that have caught my interest...

A door being eaten by vegetation.

Lake Ontario at sunset. In the fall. Before this long winter.

A heavenly discovery during an autumn stroll.

Winter...bleh...hiss...go away!

This old mill at Chaffey's Lock was bought by a couple, and is being turned into a bed and breakfast.
I found it! The light at the end of the tunnel...

♫♪ Wild horses turkeys couldn't drag me away... ♪♫

I love taking strolls through old cemeteries. They are very intriguing.

There's a storm headed our way!

Why take a dog for a walk when you can take a camel instead?

Have a lovely Tuesday, everyone.

  3. Well that's true. I don't walk my camel as often as I should! (And I loved the photos of WARM places and times Martha - keep them coming & maybe we'll make it thru this winter! :) )

  4. I would like to be able to say: Oh this one is my favorite but I just can't. Too many beautiful shots, though I will say I love doors and old mills and farms. The one with the storm coming is really gorgeous. I can feel it coming out of the photo. It pulls you right into it. Blessings and hugs, Bird

    1. I also love doors and old mills and farms. Windows, too. I always look around for one of those to photograph. I also love things that are decaying, rust, etc. There is so much to photograph in this world!

  5. That one way to break up the monotony (monochromy?) of winter. Revisit images you captured in other weathers.

  7. vegetation is okay to deal with until it gets in stuff like high areas, or in a fence. We finally got our fence free of branches and kudzu

    1. And some vegetation actually causes damage to buildings and fences. I prefer not to have any type growing on our home!

  8. Brilliant, Martha … you know? the storm headed our way picture is … I don't know… soothing? how can that be! … I can just smell it. love storms on a hot summer day … not so much in the winter … even though it's pretty … brrrrrr ~ love the light at the tunnel's end...

    Wouldn't that be something to convert that old mill into a B&B … in my next life? I'm going to be thin and rich … that's right…

    1. I feel the same way, Carolyn. Not sure how to describe that feeling. The power of these storms amazes me. I think they are beautiful visually, but they can cause serious damage. Mother Nature...we are at her mercy!

      Yes, that is something about the B&B! It's such an incredible idea. Hahaha...plan the next life from now, so you can make sure you get what you want! I want money to travel. I don't need a big house or fancy car or any such nonsense, just a bank account full of funds to support lots and lots of traveling!

  10. I hope that you are enjoying a lovely Tuesday too, Martha! As always, I enjoyed your photo dump. I can't get enough of exploring our gorgeous and varied world! Thanks for your well wishes regarding my recent oral surgery. I'm about to venture out of my house for the first time since I came home from the dentist last week ~ I'm slowly getting back to normal. Once I catch up on answering all the comments on my last post, I'm going to enjoy reading your back blogs! Have a good one! Stay warm!
