The week that was in Photos

mothers day lunchHi! Surprisingly there are no circles in the week that was in photos! I guess it’s been the focus in my mind, and not on the camera, as I’ve been writing Google+ guides ahead of Monday’s linky.

Of course, the week started off with a special treat – a mother’s day lunch. Fish and chips for my daughter and husband, mussels for my son, and salad for me.

And there were the usual school runs. I noticed a tree’s shadow trying to break into the shed at my children’s school.

Ship ahoy! My children loved making home made pop-up cards.

And here’s Jack the Lad. He likes nicking seeds that fall from the bird feeder.

During an early morning run, I took a break and walked in the woods on our road. A swamp there looked both eerie and beautiful with the light shining through the trees.

A Blue Jay had a tough time with the bird feeder and kept swooping in for some seeds.

A few more flowers appearing as it looks like winter is finally the season that was.

And it’s already week 14 of Project 365. Hope you can join me Monday on the Google+ Hopscotch – it’s both for active and novice GooglePlussers.

Have a lovely week ahead,

Cheers, Kriss

  1. Great photos Kriss. I love the swamp and the bird swooping in for seeds. The shadow on the shed is rather special though and of course Mother’s Day. Sounds like a good week overall :)

  18. Wow that blue jay shot is national geographic material :) out of curiosity what lenses do you use? I think its great your son loves mussels! My wee man had calamari for the first time and ate it all up and I was rather pleased with him.

    • Thank you – I used a 55-210 mm for this shot but through my bedroom window – the birdfeeder is only about 8 feet away. I have to wait in the same position for quite a bit to make sure I don’t scare them away

  21. I love the blue jay picture. Our garden squirrel nicks food shamelessly from the bird feeders.

  22. Fab photos of the squirrel and bird. Did you snap with a long lens or did you get that close?
