One of my favourite signs is from a lookout over the Grand Canyon. It simply says, ONE MINUTE. DON’T READ. DON’T TALK. NO PHOTOS. JUST LOOK…..AND SEE. It is something that I hope you will do often when you visit our parks or other natural areas in Ontario. But how about this variation? TWO MINUTES. … Continue reading Soundscapes from across Ontario
Yesterday I shared some photos of some familiar creatures for this week’s WordPress photo challenge.
Just in case you didn’t guess what the subject of the photos was…
This weekend we visited the Butterfly Conservatory in the Niagara Parks Commission.
I could spend days in there! So relaxing and stunningly beautiful. The air is full of softly fluttering wings of every colour under the sun! It’s fun to stroll around carefully … Watch your step the butterflies land on the path!!… watching these creatures float and glide. It’s magical how they fly.
It feels like you’ve been given a bit of magic when they choose you to perch upon!
This weekend we visited a world-known place, that is ‘in our backyard’. Thousands visit this attraction each year. While this weekend was on the warm side for our winter, it wasn’t as warm as this place.
I love visiting here. It’s amazing how such tiny, delicate creatures can make you feel small.
What’s equally amazing is the closer you look the less familiar/ less ‘of this world’ these creatures get!
I think you know what the subject of my photos is…
But I’ll wait until tomorrow to post a few other photos that will show you if you haven’t guessed!
For this week’s challenge, I thought I’d use some photos from a series of photos that I took last spring. Since it is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada I’ve been thinking of the young turkey that walked our neighbourhood for a couple weeks.
Seeing this visiter made our ordinary street a little less pedestrian. 😉
She? He? Wandered through everyone’s yard as if she didn’t have a care in the world. I guess since it was months away from Thanksgiving at that point she didn’t!

…is anything but “pedestrian,” which also means “lacking inspiration or excitement; dull.” It seems fitting that such a beautiful walkway is the path that connects people of different languages and cultures.
What does pedestrian mean to you? Perhaps this is a great chance to go out and practice some street photography. Maybe you’ll capture something truly “pedestrian” — something that could use a dose of inspiration. Regardless of how you interpret this challenge, I’m looking forward to seeing the results.
