Two months ago I shared an encounter with a Cormorant. This month I had a noisy encounter with two Egyptian Geese. They were definitely engaged in the activities unlike the Cormorant who just gave me a lazy look. Clearly used to people, and possibly used to being fed, these Egyptian Geese wandered up to the railings, made a few sqawks and then flew up to the top of the wooden railing and proceeded to engage. Below is my encounter with these two.

I started blogging with this group of ladies in July 2013. Time goes quickly when you are having fun. I am thankful for each of these ladies and for the encouragement and inspiration they give me each month. It has been a wonderful journey.
For this months blog I decided to go to the local Japanese Gardens to be part of their Oshogatsu: A New Years Celebration. The place was crowded and there were different events to watch. I decided to head to the drum event to take some photographs. My intention was to walk in the gardens afterwards but that fell by the wayside very quickly when I realized that there were too many people walking the grounds. I wanted to find those images that were quiet and alone. Perhaps I will go back on Friday.
Here are some of the images I took of the drum group.

Tis months color theme for Artists Inspired is Gray, and we recently had a few gray days down at the beach. I love the color gray. It fits well into my winter colors of black, red & white. I had a look at the meaning of colors and found this particular line that resonated with what I am going to share today. It is a relief from a frenetic world. Composure and calm is what is felt through seeing this color.
I am all about finding peace and quiet. My day job is busy and at times stressful, so I actively seek to find peace. You will find me curled up with a book, walking in the wetlands, or relaxing on the beach. All three settle my chaotic senses and give me calm.
This series of images was taken down at Long Key State Park in the Florida Keys. We will often head down there for a 3 day weekend. This year has been a little harder to get out due to my foot surgery but these of the kind of breaks that we like.
Gray may be deemed dull and boring, but for me it is peaceful in a busy day. It calms my soul.
The gray area,
the place between black and white –
That’s the place
where Life happens.

Hard to believe that it is 2017. The past year just flew by. Katherine of Cobert Photography has chosen Music as the theme for January. Tough one for me. I am not a musician, we have no musical instruments in the house and I have not been to any events recently where music was involved. Unless I photograph Richard setting up his playlists for his phone to play through his new blue tooth speaker. There is nothing musical about that. However, I was reminded of an event we had a couple of years ago when I first started out taking photos. So I pulled them up and went through a re-edit process.
One staff luncheon we were treated to a hour of musical delight. My work colleague and her husband are musicians. Jane does a lot of “Elvis” cruises with a prominent cruise line, and Dave is a quiet soul, whom if you met him, would not make you think that he had this stunning voices that range from Elvis, to Nat King Cole, to Frank Sinatra, to my all time favorite UB40. They also have a ministry of visiting the elderly and singing to them. I love that this brings great joy not only to Dave and Jane but also those that they minister to. Jane mentioned to me at the time that they do not have an opportunity to change their costumes, so they interchange with hats and sunglasses, scarves and such items.
Here is my share on the topic Music. I look forward to seeing yours.
What a coup! Young and old, we were all entranced in the performance, the versatility, and the love that these two amazing people share. It is definitely time to stop by and listen to them again.
