Guest Blogger/Photographer Rob Finds His Own Eye

I received the loveliest email and photo from a family friend in northern Illinois.  He graciously consented to be guest blogger today.  You might have read his comments on blog posts of mine.  He collects MGs and is a certified pie judge.  A dear friend.  What I always remember is how Rob and his wife Mary drove to Rockford, Illinois for my mother’s funeral service and also came to have lunch in Milwaukee  and offer friendship and support when I took Laura to college at Marquette.  Here is Rob’s note and photo-

I love following your blogs and the interesting subjects that you always seem to capture at the right moment.  You also inspire me as I sit and think deep thoughts about what is around me and look at things differently.  Today I finished up some yard work getting ready for the cold weather that is expected in the near future.  The temperature was around 64 degrees and it was a little cloudy.  As I sat on the patio enjoying a nice glass of wine, i took out my iphone and captured this photo that just seemed to be something unusual about it.  The reflection of the homes on the other side of the lake, the cloudy sky, the metal patio table, the branches of the tree and of course the glass of wine. Do I have an eye or should I go back to go?  Thanks.  Rob

 Do not go back to GO, Rob.  Keep finding moments and catch them.  Thanks for being such a great blog follower.

love,

Ruth

    You’ve started something Ruth! We all look at the everyday moments differently now. JB

    • I know he will enjoy all the positive comments. My sister thought it could grace the cover of a wine magazine!
