A Sunflower Growing From the Gutter of our Roof

by Ellen DuBois on 07/18/19

What I thought was a weed growing from the gutter of our roof turned out to be a gorgeous sunflower! It's way up high and reaching towards the sun. I had to get a picture of it!



Here's another photo for better perspective:

Relaxing Sunday with Cooper the Rescue Dog

by Ellen DuBois on 07/14/19





I love this picture of my dog. It captures his essense so well, at least in part. This is Cooper at his most relaxing self. A playful picture of him would have an completely different feel. But, this is very befitting of a hot, summer, July afternoon when the temps are hot and the air inside is cool.

Wildflowers, a Goldfinch and a Butterfly

by Ellen DuBois on 07/11/19



Here are some pictures I took today. I was out walking around the yard with my camera, which has become part of my routine.  


When I spotted the gorgeous butterfly on the side of the house, I prayed I'd get the shot.

My Nikon didn't let me down! (I thanked God for the great shot, too.)

Pictures Through the Window

by Ellen DuBois on 05/14/19



It's been so rainy here in Massachusetts. I chalked it up to (a lot of) April showers last month, but they've extended into May. The world around me is soaked. (My plants are happy!)


All the gray can make me feel gloomy, but seeing brightly colored birds at the feeder always cheers me up. I'm so blessed with a gorgeous variety of colorful birds: Goldfinches, Cardinals, Woodpeckers, Orioles, Bluejays and more.

Taking pictures through the window isn't an ideal way to take them, (especially when the window is dirty), but sometimes I like to take a few shots and see how they come out. I think the brightly colored oriole looks amazing. Not as sharp and vibrant as it would have been had I been standing in the rain, but nice and I stayed dry :) 

Here's a woodpecker in the rain, taken through the window:

The Gray Catbird: Learning about birds with my Nikon

by Ellen DuBois on 05/09/19







With the arrival of spring comes all sorts of bird songs I've never heard before. Since I've been taking more pictures of birds, I've become even more curious as to what kinds I'm seeing and hearing. 


I love grabbing my camera, heading outside and capturing images of birds, nature, blossoms- you name it. (My dog doesn't escape having his picture taken, too.)

This morning, I heard the song of a bird I didn't recognize. It was early and quiet- around 7:30. What else to do but get my camera and head outside?

I believe the bird pictured here is a gray catbird. I am pretty sure of this based on good old google. I looked up gray singing birds northeast and both the photos and descriptions of this interesting bird seemed to match. (If I'm wrong and you know your birds, please let me know.)

Spring Nature Pics with my Nikon D 5200 #amateurphotographer #Nikon

by Ellen DuBois on 05/04/19

There's so much to photograph out there! It's May 4th and although it's cold and damp, the birds are still here, the flowers are greeting us with their vibrance and short lived blossoms and green leaves are gracing the trees. I love it all. The beauty is almost overwhelming!


Here are some pictures I took today. My dog Cooper, a little-love-of-a rescue dog is full of spunk and kisses. He's a doxie mix, weighs in at about 13 lbs and one of his many interesting traits are his different color eyes. I saw some gorgeous mallards resting on the shore and one showing off his beautiful plumage in the water. The Nuthatch (bird) on a purple wire was about to grab a bite to eat at the feeder.

Every day there is something beautiful to see- even when the weather is anything but ideal.  That's why I love taking pictures so much. It makes me slow down, focus on the beauty around me and with any luck, capture a great shot or two.

Old Glory

by Ellen DuBois on 04/20/19




Yesterday (4-19-19) was windy and cloudy. You could feel the rain coming in the air and in the bones. As I drove home, taking a scenic route, the Amercian flag caught my attention. In turn, I did my best to capture it. The vibrant red, white and blue blowing in the strong winds against an ominious, gray sky seemed to beg for a photograph.

April Buds

Have Camera. Will Travel.

by Ellen DuBois on 04/17/19



Whether I'm making a quick run to the store or going out for a longer time, I love to have my camera with me. You never know what you'll see and with spring here, there's loads of beauty mother nature is sharing with us!


That's how I captured this beautiful image of a blossoming tree. Who know a quick errand to the bank would result in such a gorgeous display of nature?

Have camera. Will travel.

I take my pictures with my Nikon D 5200. Eventually, I'll add a 600 mm lens to it, (they're pretty expensive!). Until then, I work with my 300 and am still able to capture a lot!

And Then I Saw A Rainbow

by Ellen DuBois on 04/16/19



I was out running errands yesterday. It was Marathon Monday, Tax Day, April 15th. The weather was everywhere- rain, warmth, strong winds, dropping temps. Leaving the drive-thru at CVS, I had a feeling I might see a rainbow. One of those strong feelings in your gut. 


After putting my things on the passenger side floor, I looked up to see a rainbow. So beautiful, but my view was obstructed by power and phone lines. I drove with a mission- to get a picture of the rainbow before it disappeared with no power lines blocking the view.

I pulled into a parking lot across the street, deciding it was okay to have trees in the picture. Why not?

I'm glad I had my camera with me!

Spring's Promise in Pictures

by Ellen DuBois on 04/06/19

What a beautiful, spring day in Massachusetts. The temps were in the 60's. The sun was shining and the sky was that kind of blue that "feels" like spring. After running some morning errands, I couldn't wait to get home and walk around the yard with my camera.




Signs of spring were everywhere. From the red colored buds on the trees that reached toward the sun to the white cascades of flowers draping the shrubs. (Lily of the Valley). 



Such beauty.

The world seemed to be waking up as my feet sunk into the squishy ground. Just a month ago it was so solid, frozen, dormant. The songs of winter birds were joined by chirps, tweets and quacks of feathered friends who'd recently migrated from warmer climates. 




I love the spring. It's filled with promise, hope and beauty.

Tiny Orange Flower

by Ellen DuBois on 04/02/19



This beautiful, tiny, orange flower is from a house plant given to me by one of my piano students. At the time, she was graduating high school and heading off for college. I loved this plant and the heartfelt note she wrote.

When the little flowers were gone, I decided to snip off the dead ones, not knowing if they'd come back. To my delight, they did.

When I had to move my music studio, I brought the little plant home with me and cut it back again.

The vibrant, orange flower is a result of the cutting back, and there are many more ready to blossom.

Ol' Blue Eye

by Ellen DuBois on 03/31/19



As you might have gathered from previous posts, I love taking pictures of my rescue dog, Cooper. After a long day, (I was out early on this Sunday morning), it felt great to get home and see my little buddy.

Cooper loves seeing me, too. He's not really fond of having his picture taken. In order to get a good shot of him, I usually have to be kind of sneaky about it! :)

This was in the side yard. The ground is covered with pine needles, pine cones and leaves that fell long after the fall clean up. It's a candid moment and his blue eye is so vibrant against the earthy tones. 

Oh...I just love him. 


*Photo was taken with my NikonD5200 camera.

Bird and Blue

by Ellen DuBois on 03/26/19



I love taking pictures of birds in trees. They're a challenge because they move so quickly, but when you get the shot, it's so exciting!

I call this picture Bird and Blue. I used my 200mm lens, Nikon D5200 camera. I'm an amateur photographer and find such joy in taking pictures. I gravitate towards nature shots and sometimes older buildings. When Christmas time comes, I enjoy taking pictures of the lights. It can be a challenge, but I learn as I go and it's about the journey, too.

Hi. My name is Ellen DuBois. I'm the author of I Never Held You: Miscarriage, Grief, Healing and Recovery and Jackie's Heart. Since 2006 I've been hosting MiscarriageHelp.com, a support site for women and their families who have miscarried.
