Iris in the Sun


I caught the sun lightly shining on a blooming Iris, in our backyard garden, earlier this summer.

Muffin, our Feral Cat, Suspect


Muffin, looking a bit suspect – or guilty, may or may not have knocked over the light.  I don’t think she did it, but, she refuses to talk.

Yellow Day Lily


This Yellow Day Lily is growing in a large pot with others.

Log Cabin Bird House


One of our daughters gave me this Log Cabin Bird House.  It even has a latchable back door for cleaning.  I haven’t hung it this year due to over abundant Wasp and Hornet populations.  I’m sure one or the other would make a home inside. NEXT YEAR!

Facebook Messenger Made Easy

I’m going out of the Photography Genre here in case there are those of you out here that have been having the trouble I have with Facebook Messenger.

The App for Messenger specifies it is for PHONES.  I don’t use Facebook or Messenger on my phone, I use The Facebook App on my Nook HD and have tried the Messenger App on my Nook HD.  Messenger will not work on a Nook HD.  So I did some investigating using Google and found where this other man was having the same problem with his IPAD.

Another man picked up on it and said to use only your browser to log on to Facebook and Messenger will work fine – It does!  If you’re having trouble forget the APP.  Go to your browser and type in and see what happens.  When Facebook opens it will look different than the APP version so take a minute to look around.  Up along near the top will be a row of clickable menu types…one looks like a folder and should have some numbers on it like 1,2,3, etc. depending upon how many messages you’ve received and not opened.  Click on it and, walla, you’re in Messenger.

Remember you may have to sign up for Messenger…or it may sign you in using your Facebook Login and Password…you may not have to actually log in at all.  You’ll need to check it out.

Give it a try and I hope it works for you.

Potted, Pink Petunias – in Sunlight and Shadow

My wife loves Petunias and set this bunch just outside our backyard garden.

The Golden Stallion


I’ve had this statue for many years and had never taken a photo of it until a few days ago.  Maybe setting atop my wardrobe has given it a more mature look or, most likely, I liked the way the light hit it. Anyway, sometimes shooting an object as it is provides a better view than attempting to make all the right adjustments to create an image.
