I absolutely love bugs, as summer turns to fall one of the things that makes me sad is that soon, the familiar buzz in the grass and in the trees is going to disappear for the winter. It seem I am almost the only one who feels this way, everyone else is glad to see them go. When I go on hikes I always enjoy just hearing and feeling the life around me and so here are few pictures of some of the insects I came across this summer.
I have not been incredibly good at creating these posts as they happen of late. I was looking through my pictures and came across these ones from a trip up to a friend’s cottage this past summer. I always enjoy looking back at my pictures just because of how vividly the memories of great times like that come back to me.
My own birthday’s have for so long been uneventful occasions, I have rarely done anything special or expected any kind of gift from anyone. I find I don’t really care to get new stuff, my apartment is rather sparsely furnished with mostly second hand things and more often I just don’t want to accumulate anything else. There are however some exceptions, the things that I feel enrich my life by using them. As you might have guessed my camera is one but my skis and my golf clubs also qualify. Today, however I received another one in the mail.. it was my grandfather’s surveyors measuring tape.. as I was playing with it and taking the above pictures I realized this simple little thing is going to come with me wherever I go.
