Mono Monday: Bird Sanctuary? Being Kreativ...and Happy!

Well, we made it....(in hindsight was possibly a tad over-dramatic earlier!) this is our first post for Monochrome Monday, clicking on the image above should take you to the host, Aileni's blog.

Our black and whites snapped at Findhorn yesterday, of course I had to do a collage! (they were actually taken in colour and later edited so we're cheating a bit!)

It was such a beautiful day yesterday....very cold but sunny and calm, of course the beach was busy but not too bad. There were large slabs of ice floating out to sea and scraping against the buoys in the Bay, Gabbi barked at the noise. No seals in the water but plenty on the sandbanks and as we came around the point the beach looked like a bird sanctuary, hundreds of gulls which Gabbi also barked at! The view across the Firth was as clear as i've seen it for weeks and the hills are all carpeted in white, gorgeous.....must....get...new...camera...with....good...zoom!


We have been given the Kreativ Blogger award by our friends Roxy and Lucky, thanks so much you gorgeous gals!

We are supposed to list six things that make us happy...only six?...well that's easy!

  1. Sausages
  2. Liver cake
  3. Knuckle bones
  4. ....what do you mean, it can't be all food??

Ok, we'll start again.....

  2. Walking at the beach
  3. Rolling in seaweed....it's good for the coat daaahling!
  4. Snoozing
  5. Travelling in the car (means we're going somewhere exciting)
  6. The zoomies

What makes our Mum happy? Why attending to our every need of course, what else?

We are now supposed to pass the award on to six more Bloggers.....aaarrgh! Please help yourself!


Thinking of all the poor souls affected by the terrible fires in Australia....and both shocked and saddened to read of the huge death toll and that the fires were started deliberately.....hopefully the arsonists will be very severely dealt with.

Fun collage in mono!

Cool! Don't think you're cheating at all by taking them in color and then converting them to b&w. In fact, some would say that is precisely what you should do because then you have more of a photo to work with when you get back home. Nice creation with your collage.

Awww, man. Those views. Do you have room for one more?

I'm very interested in this liver cake. Is it used for treats? Do you have a recipe? Mom is going to the meat packer this week or next and is stocking up my freezer. We're looking for new treat ideas!

Thank you for the lovely walk by the beach! We could almost hear the gulls! The snow is melting finally, in spots. We are hoping to have a nice walk this evening! But think it would be more fun on a beach!

I love your six things. Did you notice that mom couldn't stop at six, either? Could you really see ice chunks in the sea? You have to get a photo for mom. And the seals too. Squeeeeee


Carolina said...

Haha, thanks for the awardoffer, but I only accept awards (ahum) if I get the dinnerinvitation, the dress to wear, the champagne and all the bling to go with it. Just picking them up doesn't do it for me ;-) Love to visit you, you are always good for a smile or a laugh.
