New parking, pets, total solar eclipse, and flowers – August Recap

The month of August was a whirlwind and suddenly it’s gone.  Hello September, when did you arrive? Shane was busy at the beginning of the month spreading gravel for the new parking area.  The Miatas have been multiplying out here!  (Business is great, a good problem to have.)

Weekly Photo Challenge “Rule of Thirds”

Once I discovered the rule of thirds, I found myself introducing it into many of my shots.  The rule of thirds can transform a boring photo into something special.  Although I had many photos to choose from I loved this one because the flowers found a way to grow among the rocks of Lake Superior….

Weekly Photo Challenge “New”

Who can resist cute kittens just starting out…
