A MOTHER’S WALTZ by Leslie Martel and Marilyn Armstrong

Mother's Day - Sunday, May 8, 2020 FROM swo8 (Leslie Martel): Today is Mother’s Day. To commemorate this day, we have created a photographic montage of families together. It includes eight generations of my family and three of Marilyn and Garry Armstrong's families. The song is bittersweet because to be a mother, is indeed bittersweet. Our children bring us our … Continue reading A MOTHER’S WALTZ by Leslie Martel and Marilyn Armstrong

FLYING SQUIRRELS ON THE NIGHT OF MAY FIRST – Marilyn Armstrong

We hadn't put out the night camera in a while and I still have a lot of unprocessed pictures from the previous two nights. But what is interesting about these is that you can see many flying squirrels gliding in. They look like bars of light, although it depends on the angle. See if you … Continue reading FLYING SQUIRRELS ON THE NIGHT OF MAY FIRST – Marilyn Armstrong

HEADS AND FACES IN BLACK & WHITE – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Heads or Facial Features I don't do a lot of portraits anymore. I used to.

A FEW MORE SQUIRRELS – Marilyn Armstrong

Still, there are a lot of … Continue reading A FEW MORE SQUIRRELS – Marilyn Armstrong

I do, however, have an absolute favorite engine picture. This amazing car hangs from the ceiling of the … Continue reading START YOUR ENGINES PLEASE! – Marilyn Armstrong

MORE NIGHT CREATURES – Marilyn Armstrong

MORE NIGHT CREATURES Two raccoons, but not the usual ones. These are older, fuller coats, but their big fluffy tails are clearly marked and they have true bandit masks. Also, you can see how much taller they are, easily reaching all the way up on the feeders. I did a variety of things to try … Continue reading MORE NIGHT CREATURES – Marilyn Armstrong

WHEELS WITHIN WHEELS – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Wheels I love wheels. Shiny wheels, rusty ones, big puffy ones, and old wooden ones. I like them with a lot of gleaming and carved of wood. These photographs are drawn from my archives. Some are more than a decade old, others more recent. And of course, everything is in … Continue reading WHEELS WITHIN WHEELS – Marilyn Armstrong
