It always amazes me the vast number of birds that remain here in the Northern parts of Ontario, Canada. The Blue Jay for one…
I was so excited to see them in my trees that I hurried inside to the pen tablet and started drawing this delightful bird. Although different from what I witnessed in the trees I wanted to try my hand at creating the beauty of these birds. I used a drawing tool called the Pen Tablet and a program called Sketchbook Pro.
This was back on April 5th 2017. Then on April 18th I heard such a racket happening outside I had to jump away from the computer and see what was causing the noise. Once, outside I noticed one of the trees just full of birds all singing or calling out at once. It was a rather high pierced sound along with the road noise from the highway combined, so I added a bit of music instead to the 50 or more Waxwing birds who came for a short visit.
Nature is a glorious thing to witness and these birds lifted my spirits almost as if I were flying there with them as they took off to show their beauty to someone else in the neighborhood, hopefully they took as much delight in the sight as I did..
I certainly miss my days before retirement. I use to eagerly await Friday, because the weekend was on the horizon and I always looked so forward to putting my feet up. Now, I can do that at any time of the day right? Not so much….
I think I’m tired of all this snow already and just want to return to work. Hum, just kidding…
I’ve been working on a folding light box to use for some of my indoor photography. The first box was huge and storing it was a pain like a pimple popping on your face just before you have a special occasion to attend. Alright, I must admit I’m too old to get pimples any longer, but you get the idea, right?
I ordered a set of L.E.D. strip lights with a sticky back for my new light box and was amazed by the light. I think I’ll add another strip of lights inside of the folding light box and see what happens, but for now … What do you think?
I’ll show it opened up with the light strips attached next post.. hugs from me to you…
I want to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday & a safe and Jolly New Year…
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
I wanted to post this video out yesterday, but removing the snow wore me out.. Enjoy my little bit of snowy weather.. shoveling and snow-blowing
The boats have all gone home for a long winters docking, no longer having the lakes water lapping up the sides of the hull. Silence surrounds me as I stand by the waters edge taking in the beauty of such an open space. Having a Peaceful Sunday with joy in my heart….
While I was out by the lake on Saturday morning there was this seagull waiting to see if I had brought them anything to nibble on. This bird flew in and rested atop a garbage can, before flying down to where I was sitting in my car waiting on the sunrise.
Have a wonderful week ahead….
Until next time
