The wheel within the wheel. The circle in the spiral.

Round like a circle in a spiral .Like a wheel within a wheel. Never ending or beginning… Windmills of your mind. The Ragtag Daily Prompt for yesterday was Like a Circle in a Spiral. Well I remember that from a song, Windmills of Your Mind and that movie with Faye Dunaway and Steve McQueen. And…

F.O.T.D. Spring Blossoms

Spring has sprung and the trees and flowers have come alive. Only a couple of weeks ago we still had cold miserable weather and the garden was hiding. Then the temperature went up and BOOM! Spring burst upon us. Our driveway is lined with ornamental pear trees and this year the blossoms have been spectacular….

FOTD: Star Magnolia

We have had a cold spring here in Ontario. But, at last, a week ago the Star Magnolia was able to open its blooms. Sadly last weekend the temperatures plunged to record lows and we had snow! This decimated the poor Star Magnolia blossoms and now they are brown and wilted. I did take a…

Crop, 86, Cut. The Lens-Artists Challenge #96

Most of the photography I do is of horses. They are moving subjects and often at the other end of an arena. For horse shows I use a very long lens 250-600 mm mounted on a mono-pod. So I can get close with that but often it may have too much other stuff in the…

Horses! Horses Everywhere! But nary one to ride.

This week Amy gave us the Lens-artists Challenge “At Home”. I don’t have my horse at my home and with the lockdown continuing I am still not able to ride. But as I walked through my home I realized there are many horses. Here are two greys painted by Mabel Hollams. When I am very…

Good Morning!

“Let us then be up and doing, With a heart for any fate, Still achieving, Still pursuing, Learn to labor, And to wait.” The words of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and the ‘first thing in the morning’ enthusiasm of our little mini-Schnauzer June seemed to be the ideal response to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge “Morning” given…

Looking Back to Happy Memories

This weeks Lens Artists Photo Challenge comes to us from Journeys with JohnBo. Since most of us are in lockdown he invites us to ‘go back’ and visit places through our photos. As many of you know I am missing my horse Biasini. He is only 15 minutes away by car but due to the…
