My camera is a great excuse to walk and to observe nature. Not every picture is worthy for later processing, but a surprising number are pretty good.
This summer there are LOVE signs popping up all over the state of Virginia. It's a shout out to the state theme, "Virginia Is For Lovers".
I love being a tourist in my own state! Here are some pictures and history of the town of Orange, which is north of Charlottesville, Virginia.
My neighbors act as my muse, as they have for artists before me. In this case, my neighbors porch beckoned with its bright flowers against a big porch.
The sky and water stretch on endlessly in this photograph from the Outer Banks in North Carolina.
Sunflowers truly look like a sky with a thousand suns. Their bright yellow heads follow the light, reminding us that we too should follow the light of our lives.
While photographing the bees with my camera, I’ve observed how they attempt to knock each other off the flowers. I imagine it’s a survival technique – if the flower is good, why should they try a different one even though others are nearby without competiton? The bees try to chase away each other, as well…
Bee butts are cute, but what I got was a bee wearing pantaloons while upside down in a thistle!
This weekend, we said goodbye to the first of our three old dogs. The problem is all pets grow old, but I'm glad to have loved them.
