Brother Bob's Northview Aerie (Hubby say's He's calling it "Northern Exposure")




The view looking North . . . .
Yup.  He's a genius:)

By request . . . a few more pixes.  The gazebo is about 20 feet below and 30 felt horizontally from the aerie.  He designed and built the floating gazebo some 20 plus years ago.

A Natural With Her Paint Brush.

If I could paint I'd love my work to look like these paintings that I collected on the elbow of Cape Cod.
Janice Lincoln is the lovely lady that assists her son on the Rip Ryder which carries summer visitors for sightseeing, picnicking and seal viewing to the island off the southern end of the Cape. It's the Monomoy Island Ferry.

In the winter she paints.   Just for the fun of it.   Her work captures the feel of the ocean and the places she's grown to know over time.  Her husband, Ed (Porky) knows they're good and smiles indulgently as I bug him to let me have first dibs on them as he opens his van to perspective ferry passengers.   There they are.  I've waited all winter to have a look.  They are so reasonably priced that I feel guilty.
But not guilty enough to save them for the next passerby's.  Thank you Jan.  They're lovely and will brighten spirits next winter back in Ohio.

A very lucky pup . . .


My dear friend, Jonna . . . had to say goodbye to her long-time pup companion, Hudson.
If you've had a fur-kid . ..  if you've ever loved a dog . . .  you know her pain.   This is one of my favorite pictures of Jonna and Hudson.
And you can see, that he was one lucky pup.

The Phoebe has returned to central Ohio . . .

           


   Can Spring - truly - be just over the rise?

 He sounds a little frazzled, but after this long winter - who isn't ?

   And he sat pretty for me as I recorded his plumage & "song'.

Winter. It's for the birds.

Eight more inches of snow.

So it's back to the window to capture some pretty birdies.

We Love Snow. Right?






A few more snows and the mail lady is gonna need a shovel.


I managed to capture a couple of these individual trouble makers.  It really makes you appreciate what photographer Ivo Dinsbergs achieves with his photos.





The surfaces onto which these flakes fell:
A broom.  A yard light.  My glove.




The dearest little neighbor built me a couple snowmen when I complained that all this snow was going to waste.
