Skywatching, Late This Afternoon

I am dedicating this post to the memories of two bloggers we have lost over the past months, East Gwillimbury Camera Girl and Birdman. The former was in a tragic accident this week, and Birdman died in October.

Although I never met either of these people, we visited each others' blogs and left comments. Photobloggers often admire each others' work, and there is a sense of community, especially among those who belong to City Daily Photo or share via linkups or social media sites.

The passing of these fine bloggers is a painful reminder of how brief and fragile our lives are. Peace.


  1. I found myself thinking of Birdman's death as well as this one. A good tribute.

  2. Such sad news about the loss of these two fine bloggers.

    Gorgeous shots.

  3. Beautiful! I haven't had much time to visit blogs during the week and it was a shock to hear about the tragic accident.

  4. I'm sorry to hear of the deaths of your blogger friends. These sky photos are beautiful.

  5. A lovely tribute. As kids we always felt angels were ascending when virgo streaked out of the clouds.

  6. Thanks for sharing your post with "Through My Lens". A wonderful tribute as well!!
