Before work....

I haven't posted anything since Sunday - I've been trying to catch up after the wedding - getting the store ready for Christmas in hopes that we will have some customers (???); I haven't even made many pictures, let alone post them. I think I've probably posted this one before, but it's one of those magic times when all I did was press the button...I was photographing the moon and the owl flew into the shot.

Today's greeting.

Oh, I do hope the economy doesn't mess up the store's holiday season. The effects are so far-reaching.

Lovely card.

A beautiful magical moment you captured!

It was like God wanted you to capture this image for all us to enjoy. I think nature is the remedy for all the depressing economic news we hear on TV. Get outside with your cameras folks. And I hope you get customers in your store. I'm planning to come by to see you soon.

Oh my gosh what a spectacular photo Helen, how co-operative of that beautiful owl to fly into the perfect spot. I wish you lots of customers over the holiday season. I know it's not the best of times. We're seeing a decline at the place I work at too.

Just remember magic happens when we least expect it, and usually when we most need it.

Here's to magic in your life, Helen, and all of ours!

One of the best of your photos...ever!

Mel said...

It's hard to keep up with all the blogging, I know exactly what you mean.

Weddings and Christmas...Now! There's a reason to slack on blogging. I did not see your owl in the moon picture before. How great is that and I bet a big surprise when it happened. Life is changing in these days of a low economy.. Hang on and put your faith to work! With family and friends we'll all get through.

Stacey Huston said...

Very magical shot indeed. Perfect in fact. Hope the holidays treat you well..

HANNIBAL said...

I am ((drooling)) right now!

Fantabulous!

Appreciate your concern on the violence in Mumbai. We hope it will end soon as well. It has actually taken all of us by suprise. We have never before seen encounters between army and terrorists before...Thomas
