One Hundred and Fifty!

 “It is a world to see.”
                John Lyly (1553-1606)

I obviously live my life through my camera lens. I never tire of seeing my world; it gives me great pleasure to just observe what surrounds us in our everyday lives. I think sometimes we are just in too much of a hurry to notice the simple things of beauty that we pass everyday.

Saturday I had to run to town to pick up more paint (yes that is what I said) and run a few errands. I thought I should go check My Hero before I go, he was back in the bush, I hiked back and notice my bush is starting to look very park like. My Hero has been very busy.

 I see many things that interest me on the hike up and back. I never tire of this short trip. Forty minutes, and forty photos later (that is a photo a minute, strange coincidence) I pass my garden and see my Mother Hen and her chicks.

 I finally get changed and head of to do those errands. I take the same old route and notice things I had missed before. I pass this sure sign that our Canadian winter is over, but someone is still hoping for next winter.

I stop at the library to drop off a few books, I decide to take the short hike to the waterfront and watch a couple of four year olds fishing with their Dad.

This duck was just kind of going with the flow. He blends right in. Hardly being noticed, just like me.

Back to those errands, I take my time, snapping away as I go. Starting and stopping along the route. I get my errands done and head home to start that painting. One hundred and fifty fantastic shots of my day.
 I love my life.



  1. 'Going with the flow' - nice.
    150 fantastic shots of your day... that's really enjoying being in the moment :D)

  2. You sure do get that finger clicking overtime, Buttons. Does it ever get a holiday? Haha!
    I agree with you, there's always something to see if you're observant. Maa

  3. And we love seeing you through those photo shots! I was in your neck of the woods Sunday, took a stroll on the Lake and saw all the logs that the storm over a week ago now came ashore, far ashore. It was breath taking but Dearest itching from poison ivy was a damper on my mind. Took no pictures.

  4. I took 69 photos on Mother's Day and I thought that was impressive!

    I'm amazed at what I missed when I wasn't looking at it through a lens.

    Hope you are having a marvelous day!

  5. Your photos are always fun to look at...you have a good eye for the camera...or the camera loves you. Either way - great post.


  6. I love how you can find interest and beauty in such a simple thing as running an errand. What a lovely way to look at the world.

  7. i love living a life where you can stop and get distracted and mosey around with a camera. :)

  8. You made me feel peaceful already........

    Thanks for sharing.


  9. I loved your post. I agree that so many don't take the time to see the amazing beauty in the ordinary. Keep snapping that shutter and sharing. I for one will not tire...

    Blessings, Debbie

  10. Now that's a route worth taking!

  11. If you and I ever got together, we'd be driving around, snapping photos, and forgetting about those errands...

    Your pictures always seem to convey peacefulness and "being still for a moment"...even though they are motion shots - we see your heart, friend!
