Odds and Ends on a foggy day

On this foggy Monday my friends and I got together to indulge in our addiction ~ photography~
Today I didn't have a theme in mind, odds and ends were what caught my fancy :-)

First Day of Winter...


Today the first day of winter started out pretty quiet..Just me and the doggies spending time with each other puttering around the house..My favorite time to do still life pics..In the afternoon I went to the Kemah Boardwalk for a short stroll..Then onwards to a favorite Trail near Pine Gulley. Given that the weather was more springlike, I had to peel my sweater off, lol..


Ahhh, what a beautiful first day of winter!

To brighten a rainy day :-))

If You Catch a Firefly

BY LILIAN MOORE
If you catch a firefly 
            and keep it in a jar 
You may find that 
            you have lost 
A tiny star. 

If you let it go then, 
            back into the night, 
You may see it 
            once again 
Star bright.

Amand Bayou on a cool December day

I took my walk mid afternoon..It was a gray day, the sun was being shy..There was a desolate beauty in the scenery around me..

Morning Walk

It is a blessing to know exactly where to go when one gets cabin fever..And I steer clear of malls, lol...
..I am fortunate that some of my favorite retreats are within a short driving distance :-)

Gratitude

I love these sculptures! At dusk they light up with an inner glow..I enjoyed my time walking around and shooting at Harmony Walk in Houston....I was across the street and headed to my car when I saw this sunset take place.. :-)

Winter Mood

It is so beautiful outside! It feels like spring! Today is a day to find a pretty trail to walk and collect some pine cones and acorns..Or take my camera and go for a drive in the country...I was spending some time on the patio, last February,when this fella made himself heard...He was so very busy munching out, so I had time to grab my camera and this shot...


“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”

JRR Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
