Looking through

This week it was suggested we use windows to frame our photo, to look out of our window and share. Well, I am not impressed with what I’ve taken today. So I’m sharing some of my favourite photos from past adventures that were taken through windows.

 

(i) On the Falls Incline heading down to the Niagara Parks Commission to view Niagara Falls.  (ii) Looking out the airplane window.  (iii) A curious kitten looking in my car window at me!  (iv) The fire truck parked outside my house one cold morning. (I had to wipe the condensation to take the photo.)

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Your inspiration this week is windows.

Layers of texture.

I am drawn in by moss. I love the colour; the texture and the layers. I love the contrast between the layers: rough rock and soft moss.

In this photo, there is the added bonus of a contrast in textures between new spring green and last fall’s leaves, once crisp but now soggy.

This week, share with us a layered image of your own. The topic is wide open, as long as you focus on the interplay of depth, density, and texture (or just choose one of these elements if you’d like). Strata of clouds, a shirt collar peeking through a sweater, a cross-section of an onion: you can keep your interpretation as literal or as figurative as you wish.

Grateful for a wonderful summer.

The last few weeks of summer just flew by. Well… most of it did. We did pause the rest of the world when we went camping.

It’s been a while since I posted a gratitude / Three Things Thursday post so I thought I’d start back by looking back.

The tea was extra special because I was so happy to enjoy it while listening to the birds and counting the spider webs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I smile each time I remember the hours we spend reading.P_20170826_132728

It felt like such a luxury to have hours and hours to just read.

I’m also thrilled that both my kids spent the week reading!

 

 

 

 

There was also some unexpected joy.

We woke one morning to find our neighbour was gone and a little package of food items left for us.

Merci from Rock Point Provincial Park, Canada!

WP Photo Challenge: What distrac…

Flipping through my photos over the months it is kind of obvious what distracts me…what calls me to take a photo.

Or perhaps it’s the flowers…

This week’s WordPress photo challenge is all about ….

Main Street WDW

oh umm.. things that distract you; that call you in like the scent of fresh-baked goods!

What about you: what is guaranteed to distract you? What is your “Ooh, shiny!”?
