Transmogrify ~ Flags: WP Photo Challenge


I love visiting the Winter Festival of Lights in Niagara Falls Canada. The lights transform the night and spark my imagination. This display has been one of my favourites for years. The lights slowly transform the flag from the American to the Canadian flag.

There are dark shadows on the earth, but its lights are stronger in the contrast. ~ Charles Dickens

Tomorrow we get to see the children transformed into turtles, zombies and magical creatures. After we honour our service people on November 11, we’ll look forward to the transmogrifing of our Parkway.  🙂 Where does your imagination take you?

Travel Theme: Transformation

While searching for photos I thought of spring.  The new flowers and new life.

It’s beautiful how simple green stems and little pops of yellow transform the brown underbrush in the Niagara Parks Commission Botanical Gardens, Niagara Falls, Canada

DSCF3866Daffodils show transformation on their own..plain green with a hint of a surprise.

These next two photos are from different days and in different locations but they show different stages of the transformation. The first was taken in Allegany State Park, New York, USA and the second at the Niagara Parks Commission, Niagara Falls, Canada



Can you see the tadpole in the second photo? The dark shapes in the first are about to transform to tadpoles.
