WP Photo Challenge: Cheeky

As we come to the end of Canada’s 150th I thought this photo from our Canada Day celebrations would be fun for this week’s challenge.

Last spring while on a photo journey through the Niagara Parks, we stopped at the Floral Clock. There were so many photos to be found as we walked around the clock 😉

This week, share your take on rounded.” it’s a broad theme, so I look forward to your personal interpretations, whether you choose to focus on a curving street, limbs caught mid-way through a dance, a bowl of fruit (think of all the round shapes!), or any other object, landscape, or texture that fits within your definition of the theme. As always, less-literal takes are equally welcome.

History in the Rocks (WP Photo Challenge: Texture)

When I saw this weeks theme I knew that I had to share some photos from my favourite Ontario Park.  These are fossils of a coral reef dating back to over 350 million years.

Every year I’m intrigued by the textures of the fossils on the rocks. It amazes me that after years centuries of weather, lake, and people these are still here for us to see and touch.
