For Mother’s Day, Hannah said she wanted to take me to breakfast and then on a hike – mother/daughter day of adventure. We could go and do whatever I wanted. Our adventure started at Chester Pike’s Galley, my favorite place for breakfast. We moseyed... Read more »
Over the past two days I’ve been stalking the Ospreys nesting atop a platform in Whiting. There appear to be three youth with Mama and papa watching over them from nearly trees. I could have spent the entire day watching them watching me, all the time wishing... Read more »
I’ve passed this nest many times over the last few months and finally spied an Osprey perched there today. Given the gray overcast day, the photo isn’t as spectacular as that of last year’s nesting pair, but the sighting made my day nonetheless.... Read more »
Yesterday’s drive-by of the osprey nest in Whiting showed the proud parents standing watch over at least one baby. The sun was too high in the sky and my lens too short to get a great shot, but it’s exciting to see the nesting pair I first spied back in... Read more »
Ospreys have been a theme in my life lately. They first appeared on my radar a couple of weeks ago when I photographed a pair of nesting osprey. Then, on three different occasions, I’ve spied a pair of them in town, diving for fish in the river, or simply... Read more »
It’s days like this when I’m so grateful that I dragged my camera along with me during my travels. Inevitably, when I don’t have my camera, I come across the most wonderful sights. On my drive to Cutler, Maine this morning I noticed a platform... Read more »

Moments of Peace
Before I turned on the radio this morning. Before I learned of the horror that occurred in Las Vegas. Before this Monday turned sad, I had these beautiful, peaceful, moments.
I love Fridays. They are my work from home day. I can wake without the alarm and roll out of bed to enjoy coffee at my desk. My routine involves a pattern of working and puttering, working and puttering. My puttering might be doing the dishes, laundry, taking Gidget for a walk, or like this […]
I stumbled across this picture Hannah snapped for me during one of our outings. The sign reads, “No Hunting or Trespassing.” Do you think those ducks can read?
Garden of Neglect
I always start the gardening season with such hope. This year, so many things interfered with my gardening motivation. I overextended on both the work and volunteer fronts. At the same time, I didn’t want to miss any of Hannah’s senior activities. Throw in multiple college visit trips and graduation, gardening has been the last […]
Pipers Under Pressure
The sun was shining when I left my house for the beach with Paul in tow. In the twenty minute drive (and one ice cream stop), the skies turned dark. A spot rainstorm followed us to the beach leaving it empty. I’d timed our visit a couple of hours after high tide in hopes of […]
Better in Black and White
A longtime friend photo challenged me on Facebook. The task was for seven days to share a black and white photo of your life. No people. No explanation. It was fun revisiting my pictures, testing which ones look good in black and white; many did not. Others are somehow better. It’s as if for some […]
