Friday, March 1

Just thinking....

"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."
Wayne Dyer

I've been away from the keyboard this week, just thinking.

 It's seems that all my photos taken recently,  well,  just seem so black and white. 
No life, no color, no story....
but, once I reviewed the shots I changed.

 I found a path not yet taken

The intensity of my faithful canine companion

I found brilliant and vibrant colors

 and  life

Happy Friday


  1. Yep there is beauty every where. Even in the "bleak" of cold and winter. Glad you found it and shared it.

  2. Yep, us canine companions can sure make things "colorful!!"


  3. Oh Val I think Black and White with a bit of furry coat is just perfect. LOVE the photos. Happy Friday to you too. B

  4. i like the canine part best of all..... happy friday

  5. You just have to look and see!
    Nola's Mom

    PS: Nola's tag is from Etsy, the shop is Doggone Tags ( and her tag specifically is the "Lacy" one (
    The shop owner is very helpful and friendly, and the tags are incredible. Nola's had hers almost a year and it's still in perfect condition after daily use, countless trips and more beach and swimming adventures that I can add up. The prices are good, especially for the quality.

  6. The beauty of light and shadow...absolutley...And I do like Wayne Dyer's quote cause I've found it to be true

  7. Hi there, I love your black and white photos-they're beautiful! I know what you mean though about everything being so gray and cold-I'm so ready for warm weather. Wish I could take you along!
    Have a splendid weekend.
    Love, Noreen & Hunter

  8. Beautiful post. There's beauty in everything. We just have to take the time and effort to see it. Happy Friday :)

  9. Very nicely done! Have a nice weekend!

  10. If its any consolation, its gray and windy and cool here too!! That's ok, I really need to clean the house. Going out Sunday in search of RA08 and the last Critter Cam!!! Wish you could come along. Happy Friday.

  11. Woof! Woof! LOVE black n white photo ... it gives a different meaning to a photo. We love Dr Wayne. Mom n dad met him many times as they practice yoga at the same place (he lives in Maui)... I only saw him once in the beach. Happy Friday n Weekend. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  12. The starkly beautiful lines of winter; nature's haiku.

  13. The grey of winter here in upstate NY has me going a bit crazy right around the March's time to head south!! I do love your pictures!!

  14. I'm glad that you saw the beauty in those photos because they are wonderful. life is that way - it seems so drab sometimes - until something clicks in your brain.

  15. I'm not one of those always upbeat, always super happy people, BUT I do try and always focus on the positive. The dogs make that a whole lot easier, especially the ones with few reasons to be happy. We hope things are going well for you and yours.

  16. "It's not what you look at, but what you see." Author unknown but I have been using that quote for years. It applies to so many different things including life.

    Good post Val! If you're looking for some color I know a great place surrounded by beautiful blue water! :~)

  17. I love the black and white shots. That one with Schatzie in it looks like there are diamonds on the ground. Great job Val.
