Tree Swallows

Debbie, Mari’s Sister, took us to a spot in Nokomis where the Tree Swallows gather before sunset. Looking up into the sky, the swallows make the sky look like a grainy photograph (we guessed that there were hundreds of thousands of them). They then gather in tighter bunches and drop from the sky to their night nesting spot.


It has been quite some time since I have posted something here to this blog. Other life’s chores have taken precedent.. Sindy, Mari’s friend of over twenty years, came to visit from wintery New Hampshire. She was gracious enough to let me turn my camera on her and create some portraits. I think the results were quite good as you can see.

Sindy has been focusing on creating rainbows in her life, hence the background music for the slideshow.

Sacred Sarasota Ceremonies

Mari and I since we have been in Sarasota have been invited to and participated in a number of sacred ceremonies. We have met some wonderful people through these ceremonies. I have made a number of photographs and thought it would be nice to collect them all in to one slideshow. So here it is.
