small things from the sewing room


 more macro practice
this time
 from my sewing room
I love the way
the glass headed pins look
the wool pincushion photographed well, too
it is a fair isle square my daughter made for me
many years ago

another moon haiku


setting the table
I catch a glimpse of the moon
supper might be late


another shot from earlier in the week
a mist in the air blurred the moon

haiku for spring



pink geraniums 
glow in the late afternoon light 
a robin on the rail



the buds came first
 of course

this shot was taken a few days ago

haiku - middle march


 middle  March
blizzard winds howl ~
a snowball bush blooms

 

we are having our third nor'easter 
in as many weeks
the birds are anxious for spring
and so am I

small things


more practice with my macro lens
I am finding it harder than I thought
the first two shots were hand held
I used my tripod for the others 
the canadian goose is about an inch and half tall
our daughter bought it from a street vendor
in Quebec City, while on a class trip

 


this pair of carvings are also from Quebec
they are about two and a half inches tall 
we bought these just across the border in Armstrong
in the early sevenities


my father in law was a woodworker and basket maker
most of his baskets sets were large
this one is only an inch tall
I think he wanted to see if he could do it, 
you can see he did! 

 


this shaker box is even smaller
it is just over three quarters of an inch tall
I got a bit closer on this piece

that is it for now
more after I 
finish the Macro for Dummies book
and get more practice

old glass


 practice with my new macro lens
can't wait to shoot outdoors with it
The top shot is a bubble glass pitcher from our first anniversary
48 years ago 
OMG!
the carnival glass chicken is even older

winter haiku


cheeky mockingbird
looks up from lunch
eavesdrops

when I first came to Maine
the mockingbirds were not here
then, as the climate changed,
they started coming in March and
leaving in the fall
for the past five years, I have been
seeing them here in town, and even in the city of Portland
this,I make noise, clicking sounds or just talking
on this day
he was lunching on rose hips when I got  to the mailbox
my neighbor came to the box and as we talked the mockingbird 
appeared to be listening
so funny!

frankie and grayson




the photo above was taken 
after a soft and gentle storm
last week
called Frankie
 
the one behind was taken the morning
after Grayson
quite a difference

I am not much on blizzards,
nor'easters,
or bomb cyclones
but I do like the textures they leave behind
how about you?

new year haiku


another chance to 
keep those resolutions
we had a dusting of snow yesterday
so the yard still looks pretty
this haiga is from 2009
and I am still trying to get it right



fresh snow today~
tomorrow's 
clean slate
