Maximum Destruction! Found sitting just like this on the beach, ready for more destruction.

All in all were just another brick in the wall - Inner wall of a former bunker

What Sign? I didn't see any sign...

Old bunker on Sandy Hook

Not my normal style but the shells looked pink at this angle so I had to

Crash into me

If I spent every day for a year exploring at Sandy Hook, I would barely scratch the surface.
It is steeped in history back to before the civil war and strewn with artifacts and ruins throughout.
It is also one of the best birding sights in the northeast. Today I was searching out some harbor seals that were spotted in the morning with no luck. I didn't catch the recent snowy owl invasion either, but I always come away with something!

Thanks for visiting!

Holidays - The Creativity Project

Holiday Traditions

       Of all the themes and genres I've captured over the years, "Holiday" seems to be the hardest.
Most of my family has grown and had their own families, doing their own things during the holidays.
It used to be we would all gather at Nana's house and celebrate each holiday there. Our family grew too large for her house to accommodate us anymore. Old age is also taking its toll on her these days, as it will us all.  The change is hard but we carry on our own holiday traditions now.  This year's newest holiday tradition will be an ugly sweater contest at the request of my younger nieces and nephews. It is something we have never done and I plan to make the craziest one! I will post pics as soon as they are finished!

Here is my take on the Holidays so far this year.

She is what the Holidays are all about for me...

She is the angel on my tree.

I'd like to thank The Creativity Project for the opportunity to share with even more people.
You can even add your own photos on the fan page!

Please keep the circle going and visit Amanda at for her take on the Holidays.
