well, i didn’t think i was going to make it this month. work, family, school….photography has been on the back burner (more like, in the freezer). however, i was lucky to spend quick 10 minutes last weekend shooting these abstracts! This post is a part of a group project. Please check out the blog of the very talented Susan Bahen to see where she found serenity this month.

During a recent trip to visit family Ohio I stumbled upon brightly colored canoes on a bank of the Little Miami river in charming Loveland. As I soaked up the sun on this unseasonably warm afternoon, I felt inner peace.

This post is a part of a blog circle – please follow this link to the blog of the talented Kathy Roberts to see where she found serenity this month.



  • Wendy - These images bring me back to when I was in my 20’s. Used to take my much loved dog, Ben for a walk along the shore. On warm, sunny days, we’d stop and sit on the rocks and look across at the canoes stacked up to the right belonging to a local outdoor centre and the sea in front…. brings me back to those days 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Kathy - These stacked canoes remind me of the exact same ones mentioned in my blog post this month! They are all so brightly colored and lovely.ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer Carr - Oh my goodness, these are so fun! I love the colors!ReplyCancel

  • Nadeen - LOVE the color and your perspective of the arranged canoes.ReplyCancel
