Bagpipe Player at Sunset


Evening at Spanish Bay

“No other game combines the wonder of nature with the discipline of sport in such carefully planned ways. A great golf course both frees and challenges a golfer’s mind.” – Tom Watson

This image was taken during the 5:15 pm bagpipe session at Spanish Bay Golf Resort.  The sun was setting and the haze, clouds, and colors were dynamic.  I wanted to capture the bagpipe player in a mystical, yet methodical way, thus I used the background as my focus and captured the bagpipe player as a silhouette so that the mind naturally wonders to the sound of the music amidst the light and the ocean breeze.

To see this image in black and white – just as dramatic as the image in color, visit Monochromia, a black and white photography blog, for my Thursday post.  I’d love to hear which image you prefer.

Have a fabulous weekend!  And, may the sun be at your back.

Come Sail Away…

Come Sail Away

Come Sail Away

“I’m sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea
I’ve got to be free, free to face the life that’s ahead of me
On board, I’m the captain, so climb aboard
We’ll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I’ll try, oh Lord, I’ll try to carry on
I look to the sea, reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We live happily forever, so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we’ll try best that we can to carry on
A gathering of angels appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope, and this is what they said
They said come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me”

It’s been 20 years since I saw Styx live in concert…oh the memories music can conjure.

Believe in Love Declared

Believe in Love Declared

“I love you, I’ve loved you for years and I’ll love you for years more. It’s not something I can fight, it’s not something I want to fight.” ― Somi Ekhasomhi, Always Yours

The red tulip means “Believe Me” and “Love Declared” in the Victorian Language of Flowers, thus the title of this image and the reason I selected it for Valentine’s Day.  I wish you all a day filled with love and joy.

Daisy Being Shy for the Camera


Who is with me that dogs are part of the family?  This is our family dog, Daisy, aka Crazy Daisy or Daisy Duker Dog.  She is nothing shy of a challenge to photograph – constant motion and little sitting pretty.  And yes, that is a pomegranate she is playing with… The images above capture her personality though…

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” – Roger Caras
