A great find from Dirtgazing contributor Donna Catterick!
Today’s guest blogger is my granddaughter, Hannah. She’s 8, and lately told me that she’s interested in taking her “photography to the next level.” I am not entirely sure what that means to a third grader, but I took it as invitation to take her out on a photo walk.
She likes reflections, and found this one on her own. In fact, I didn’t even know she’d made the shot until I downloaded the images. And she got that little white feather in the shot!
So, let’s all welcome Hannah to blogging, and to that “next level.”
To be honest, I was thinking of deleting it, since I hadn’t posted anything in more than a year, but then out of the blue, it got a new follower and a couple of new “likes.” I mentioned this to my blogging friend Ehpem, who was then kind enough to send along this wonderful shot that he made last spring at Botanical Beach, on Vancouver Island. And the cool part is that I was there when he made it!
One of Dirtgazing’s frequent contributors, who blogs at Quimper Hittys, sent along this photo and the following explanation:
After the tail end of Hurricane Ana, under the Arbutus Tree, leaves, berries, curled rolls of arbutus bark, and a bit of dirt…November in Victoria.
From guest blogger Michelle comes a camo toad. She found this little guy taking in the sun on Pelee Island, Ontario, Canada.
My friend and blogger over at Quimper Hittys send me this photo of Beach Tweed, which she spotted along the Oregon coast last week. Sort of makes you want to go to the beach, doesn’t it?
(If you are not familiar with the Quimper Hittys, please take some time to look around the blog!)
Two more shots from alert dirt gazer and guest blogger Linda Grashoff, who must spend a lot of time looking down:
