You might throw caution to the wind and link up as well. Is it your head that's thinking or is your heart that's beating when you push that shutter?
I have a dear friend whose husband just had big time surgery. I'm sorry....and there's nothing I can do, but deliver a nice hot meal so she doesn't have to cook....and to make sure that delivery includes a nice bottle of wine and a sweet treat for dessert. That's exactly what I did late this afternoon. I'm sure it was appreciated.
Along with feeling like I'd done something nice for my sweet friend and her family...I gave myself 45 minutes to shoot some pics in scenic Portsmouth NH where she lives. Portsmouth is about a 1/2 hour south of where I live in Maine. Isn't it ironic when you wander a little off your own turf how exciting it can be? It's the same sunlight, the same reflections, the same glow, but somehow with it shining and bouncing off unfamiliar objects it makes the opportunity into an adventure. I arrived home feeling fulfilled and energized and with 184 photos crammed onto the memory card, rather than the usual 20 or 30 uninspired images I've been uploading day after day as of late . Why is that? Who knows, but to me that says...."fodder for the Creative Exchange", baby. Photos taken from the heart.
Hope Nancy and Joe enjoyed the Minestrone Soup, fresh bread, wine, cheese, and chocolate chip bars. Here are some of my catches in Portsmouth this late aftenoon.
Bridges over Route 1 and Interstate 95 spanning the Piscatiqua River dividing Maine and New Hampshire.
Sander's Fish Market
Beautiful afternoon sunlight near the local fish market.
Three fishing vessels tied at the harbor dock with Memorial Bridge beside
I came to an intersection and straight ahead was this beautiful sight. How could I not take a photo?
Aren't silhouettes cool? If only silhouette wasn't such a difficult word to spell.
Round and Round
Taken from the NH State Liquor Store parking lot....view of cars circling 'round at the Portsmouth traffic circle.
Just as an aside....this again points out that my next purchase NEEDS to be a tripod....note to self, received.
