Frozen in Time

Today while strolling through, I found SquirrelQueen's amazing blog. The photos and posts were so inspirational leaving me in awe. If you haven't visited her site, I suggest you do. I'm new to photography but enjoy taking photos of the world around me.

Every photo tells a story .
Sometimes we come across a scene and ask ourselves: "Why? Who? What?"
Our minds wander in search for answers -- Answers to questions we will never know.
Hence, the real story is frozen in time . . .

Out of place?
On a sandy beach a lone flower grabs my attention. Was it placed there in remembrance of someone, thrown away as a symbolic gesture - lost love, dropped unintentionally, or was it left behind after a romantic stroll? One can only wonder.
I did not disturb the flower simply because I did not know who put it there or why.

The Happy Imposter
I happened upon little guy nestled between two tree branches.
I wonder how he got there. :)
If his purpose was to bring a smile to my face -- he succeeded.

"No bird ever...raced 15 miles high at triple the speed of sound. But birds do something else. They do not conquer the air; they romance it."
Peter Garrison

Man must rise above the Earth - to the top of the atmosphere and beyond - for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.
- Socrates

When I come across animals, I often wonder -- 'What are they thinking?' Hehehe
"Oh nuts! The lady with the camera's watchin' me."

"Hahaha. Now that was funny!"
My wee cat, Sassy always laughs at my jokes. :)

Nature's Peaceful Slumber
I love watching night fall -- tucking the sun in for another day.

Soft winds whirling about
Trees quietly sway
Majestic shadows caress the land
Waters calm for a day

Tranquility lays its blanket
Sunlight closes its blind
Lunar's comforting night light
God's creatures rest for a time.

Thank you for the encouragement, SquirrelQueen.
I hope you enjoy my photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Love and hugsssss

  2. Susan, what a beautiful post. The photos are wonderful, the rose on the sandy beach is so romantic and tragic all at the same time.
    The photo of your cat is so cute, it does look like she's laughting.
    I love your poetry, I wish I could do that.

    But now I want to see more!

    I hope you saw my post about the computer breakdown, I was still tweeking it today but looks like it is ready to rock.

    Have a great day,

  3. Hi Susan,

    I found your blog on SQ's, the photo of smiling made me smile too! How did you do that? My cat never do that...he frowns at my corniest jokes!

    Nice to meet you, I am AL.
