Sunrise with friends

I enjoyed this relaxing and fun day
with friends..
We started our day watching and shooting the sunrise.We expected an overcast morning, but we didn't care.. We were pleasantly surprised at what we saw :-) Some brown pelicans kept us company..We ended our afternoon eating fresh shrimp that was cooked in front of us..We ate our meal outside so that we could enjoy the breezes and a view of the bay....

An August Sunrise

A pretty sunrise I saw and shot with friends a few days before flying to TN...In the hustle and bustle of getting ready to leave town, I forgot about these pics...
He stops to breathe and worship the sun..
I stop to breathe and worship the sun..
We are bathed in a warm beautiful light..
Our souls collide in this quiet moment..
We move away from each other with full hearts..
A new day awaits us....

Foggy morning

Mom's backyard on a foggy morning

It is so peaceful and scenic up here at Mom's..This trip I am spending a month with Mom to help her in her recovery from surgery..There are many opportunities and places to take long walks around Mom's neighborhood... I am in love with my curious furry friends who come out to to say hi every time I pass by :-) While on this trip, I met an old friend, Robert Stone, face to face for the first time..We spent an afternoon walking in Sewanee..Nadine, Mom's best friend, came down to visit us during my last week in TN.. It had been several decades since I saw Nadine the last time.. Nadine loves to travel... Give her a tank of gas and a map and she is in heaven.. Like I am when I have a bunch of energy and inspiration and my camera close by. Nadine is nearing the end of her summer of explorations and visits with friends..She will head back towards Washington which is her home ....This has  been an unforgettable trip..While here, I found out that a close photography friend/former coworker passed away around the first of the month....He was only 45 or 46, as far as I knew he was in fairly good health..May he rest in peace...
