Sycamore is a name which has been applied to several types of trees, but with somewhat similar leaf forms. The name derives from the ancient Greek συκόμορος (sūkomoros) meaning "fig-mulberry". Species of trees known as sycamore: Acer pseudoplatanus, a species of maple native to central Europe and southwestern Asia.(Wikipedia)


The Calm Before The Storm

I took this photo just before the Covid-19 outbreak. I love the cloud patterns and colors of the sky. It similar to cloud pattern when the weather is changing. All things in nature are constantly changing and transforming our world. We will adapt and overcome #Covid19


Winter Sunset – Photo Of The Day

Took this photo last weekend and I am really happy how it turned out. It was a beautiful sunset that is still burned in my mind. I watched the sun pass over the horizon through the eyes of my drone.

It was spectacular to see the sun change colors as it disappeared. It probably was my imagination but for a split second I thought I saw some dark patches like sun spots just as it got dark.

I’ve included my photo captured on my Mavic Pro as well as a quick time lapse video. The video doesn’t give justice to what it really looks like, but it is still beautiful to watch.

Take Care Everyone and Happy Friday 😎🐼✌️!


“Frosted Tips” – Photo Of The Day

I apologize for not visiting my favorites blogs and posting much this month. I've been super busy at my real job and battling a bad cold 🥶. Probably from taking too many pictures like this 😂.
Hope to visit you all soon and have a blessed week !


First Light – Photo Of The Day

I feel bad that I haven't had much time to post or follow all my Wordpress friends and artists lately. I've been very busy at work trying to "catch up" with this being my last week before the holiday break.

Here is a photo from this past fall, that I really like how it turned out. It was a foggy morning in Northern Michigan. You could feel the moisture and the chilled air on your face. The pines and outdoor air smelled fresh with dew and was miraculously uplifting to the senses.

Remember, if I don't get to your pages, remember I try and am thinking of all of my wonderful artists 🐼😊!

Happy Holidays Panda Pals !


“State Theater” – Photo Shoot

The State Theater is a historic theater built in 1946 with a modern Art Deco design located in the city of Wayne, Michigan. One of the reasons I love the Detroit area is there are many hidden gems that since I was a child have been slowly renovated over the years. The State Theater is now owned by Phoenix Theaters. If you are in the Detroit area it is about a fifteen minute drive from the metropolitan airport. I highly recommend it as you feel the history and enjoy a cinematic experience that is not easy to find these days.

I did a few different edits and these were my favorites.

Which one do you like the most if any?

Have a good week PandaPals 🐼🙂🐼


Creepy Cryptic Cemetery – Video/Photo Of The Day

Video and photo shoot from a local cemetery.

As a child, my brother and I were fascinated by this graveyard. It was built in the 1800s and is a Catholic Jesuit Cemetery. A few of the graves carry the remains of Civil War soldiers. The crypt is located on a hill and houses a famous Jesuit priest buried beneath the floor.

I was fascinated when I flew over the crypt and saw the unusual letters "AMDG".

One of my smart historical colleagues let me know that the markings represented a famous Latin Jesuit Saying:
Ad Majored Dei Gloria: "For the Greater Glory of God"

May everyone rest in piece 🐼
