Toronto buildings

It was a beautiful fall day in Toronto, Canada. We had just visited the University Fair; learning about the choices before her. The day was as bright as her future and the sun dazzled the buildings all around us.






late winter icicles


I love winter days like this! The air was crisp, the sky was a brilliant blue and the sun made the icicles dazzle.






seasonal sparkle

The candles dazzle just says Christmas to me 🙂 Even before they’re lite and flickering.

WP Challenge: Warmth

Definition of WARMTH

noun \ˈwȯrm(p)th\

1:  the quality or state of being warm in temperature

2:  the quality or state of being warm in feeling

3 :  a glowing effect produced by the use of warm colors

The third definition made me ponder.. does a photo of a candle say “warmth” without it’s colour?

The first photo is the same as the second but I used an app to make it black and white with a colour pop of red at the center.

The third was a different photo with a different ISO setting.  I didn’t think to make note of what app / what ISO for each of the photos..I was just playing around 😉
