H2O ~ WP Photo Challenge

I love taking photos of water. It’s “that photo” I am always trying to capture.

“Water never waits. It changes shape and floes around things, and finds the secret paths no one else thought about __ the tiny hole through the roof or the bottom of a box. There’s no doubt it’s the most versatile of the five elements. It can wash away earth, it can put out fire; it can wear a piece of metal down and can sweep it away. Even wood, which is its natural complement, can’survive without being nurtured by water.”   ― Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

WP Photo Challenge: Pure


Few things are as pure as the scent of the forest, just as the spring rain stops.





Kindly visit the WordPress Photo Challenge page for more interpretations of pure

For this week’s challenge, share a photo of something pure — it can be a person, an object, or a moment. “Pure” can convey wholesomeness, something undiluted, or simplicity. We can’t wait to see your interpretation. To join int he fun visit

Grateful for “just” rain

Yesterday most of Ontario was hit with a huge ice storm. In the small pocket where I live we only had periods of cold rain.20160324_081652

It’s left many without power and there’s danger of more losing power due to the winds knocking down ice laden branches today.

I’m also grateful for the many who brave these storms to care for others. Especially the hydro workers who have a long hard job in front of them. While many families may have to rework how they celebrate Easter this weekend, the hydro workers will be away from theirs and out in the cold.

What are you grateful for this week?

Colline was grateful for workshops. Kindly pop over to her blog. This post is one of many that show her joy and enthusiasm for teaching. 🙂

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge ~ Macro Week ~ Drops of Rain

I was dashing out to work but the drops of rain on my flowers caught my attention. So I pulled out my Samsung Gallaxy S3, covered the phone with one hand and used the other to snap these photos. I was very pleased with how they turned out to spite my off balance awkwardness while taking the photos.
