Time Amongst the Trees

20161010_141840Hi all. It’s been a while. A very LONG while. I’m not going to say “I’m back” – that’s a declaration that’s too definite. But I will be here on occasion – more than I have been. I’m still spending almost as much time in nature as I always did – being amongst the trees always lifts my spirits. And now that I’m working in an office, I make a point – as often as I can – to get outside.

Photography is my journal and I’d like to share the photos I’ve taken.

I just got a new cell phone (Samsung S6) and I have to tell you, the camera on it makes my old DSLR look pretty sad. The phone is small, it’s convenient and it’s always with me.

One of my favourite tricks with photography is take a photo of a little piece of magic in very mundane area. The photo above was taken near where I live in the burbs. There’s a McDonald’s and a Quickie across the street. Cars were whizzing by as I snapped the shot. But isn’t it lovely? Wouldn’t you think it was somewhere else?

  1. You always take amazing photos and your ability to isolate a scene is very often the cause.
    Congratulations on your new S6. I’m sure you’ll put Its awesome camera to good use.
    It’s a treat to read your words and see the world through your eyes even if you only post every blue moon.

    1. Hi Abufares! Thanks for dropping by! Always nice to see you here. Thank you for the compliments. I really am enjoying the phone camera…I’m sure some photography purists would turn their noses up at that…but it is perfect for my purposes so I’m running with it! 🙂

    1. Aw thank you, Gabriela. What an interesting collection of photos you must have! I see those too but never considered photographing them. I do wonder though how they got there. 🙂
