I love taking photos. I love reflecting back on my days using photos. I just LOVE photos "period", as they hold a story within them forever of past memories. If I had the time I would LOVE also to learn how to use a really good DLSR camera with lenses and the whole works. The lenses intimidate me, so that is what has held me back. Maybe some day ...
In the meantime I have been very fortunate to have a friend or two, who are really amazing photographers. One being from my hometown of Southampton, Herman Roote. Herman actually went to school with my sister, Donna, and his brother with my brother, Allan, and myself with his younger brother. Funny how our lives intertwine years later, is it not?
I have the privilege of being a Facebook page friend of Herman's also, so I also have been enjoying seeing his photos he posts there from time to time. I have previously posted a couple of Herman's photos in the past, and recently approached Herman for permission to do so again, as his Winter subjects have captured my attention, more then once.
Here are a few of Herman's photographs I have fallen in love with:
Herman, thank you for allowing me to post your beautiful photographs on my blog, I am truly appreciative.
My day? it has mostly consisted of doing domestic chores here North of Wiarton, nothing too exciting, other then it being warmer now it has been getting quite blustery out there over the past hour or so. I think we are in for some more nasty weather by tomorrow.
We had a Christmas Dinner get together planned for tomorrow with our Son, Paul and his girlfriend, Liz, and the Children (all 5 of them who are all delightful), but Paul had a fever this morning and is sick. Between him being sick and the weather not cooperating, we are staying home tomorrow, having rescheduled our get together for another date.
The evening I am going to spend quietly hoping to pickup a scarf I have been knitting for at least two years now, please do not judge as I am hoping there will a day it will be done, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
