As I mentioned earlier, I enjoyed a lovely walk with my camera down by the river in my small town.



I am not enjoying the sunburn I got very much however.

Time just flew by and I had neglected to put any sunscreen on before I left the house.   Thinking that I was only going to the store briefly; and then back home.

But when such sights greet your eyes....
Madawaska River Dam


 .... you don't want to miss the opportunity to capture them!

Still; Sunscreen!
It's important.   I now have a travel size in my purse so that I won't get "burned" again!

Feeling Beachie

 This week’s co-host is Tami from Pretty Perplexing.  She came up with the last two statements.
 Send our host Hilary some statements if you got any!!

The statements:


1. I find Nature very soothing to the mind and soul. 

If y'all could just stop mowing your lawn while I am soul-soothing. 
Or having your driveway re-paved EVERYONE ON MY STREET.

That would be awesome.  thanks.

2. My favorite summer activity is going to the beach

My least favourite thing is having to pay $4 a trip.
That can add up at the end of a week.

However, since I have children who loudly announce when they have peed in the lake, I do appreciate the addition of bathrooms/change rooms -- which I assume I am paying for.  

3. Why do I always stay up too late?

I am never in bed before midnight.
And IF I am:  I'm not sleeping.
*wink, wink*

4. My favorite time of the day is clearly the night time because clearly I also like to function half asleep most of the time.

It justifies my coffee intake.
And no; I will not go to bed earlier AND you can't make me give it up.

There's just so much awesome to see, and I don't want to miss a thing.
Day or night.



What's your favourite summer activity?

If you follow me on Facebook, you would have noticed that I had a lovely walk down by our river with my camera.

I had originally traveled down there to hopefully capture some shots for this week's Through the Lens Photo Challenge.   But I got sidetracked by those sweeping natural views......and a few wildlings spotted on the river as well.

Fortunately, I still had to walk back to my car, and thus passed many of the old buildings that make up our lovely downtown core.    There were many different stairs just waiting to be captured.




I love that most of the businesses in our little town make a big effort at Storefront Appeal.    Our downtown might not be big in size..... but it's big on beauty.

Through The Lens Thursday is meant for self-improvement, so please….constructive criticism is welcome!
Through The Lens Thursday is a self-improvement photography project that Alison of Writing, Wishing and I (Greta of Gfunkified) are doing this year.

Don’t forget to join our Flickr group or share your own posts if you’d like to follow along and work on your own photography! And use the hashtag #throughthelensthursday to connect with others working on it, too.

Next week’s prompt is LOOKING UP.
