Not to be missed – vibrant photo challenge!

Haven’t given my blog much attention for awhile – somehow not in the right frame of mind. But when I saw this photo challenge, I realized I had to get busy. I love color. I mean, I really love color. I never feel the need to limit my photo selections, so please enjoy a few lovely, vibrant hits of color to brighten your January.

Photo Challenge: Muse

Thought I’d best get a post up – to carry on with the once monthly schedule that I seem to be on right now. Afraid I’m having trouble getting words on the page, but that hasn’t stopped me from taking photos. I am always drawn to the beauty of nature, and even the limited selection in my own garden keeps me busy. Here are some shots taken during the month of June.

Adventure of a lifetime

Here’s my response to the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge. Since my oldest daughter was recently married, I can’t think of a bigger adventure.wedding ceremony newly married coupleI wish them all the love and happiness their hearts can hold!

The wedding took place in the gorgeous Floralies Gardens in Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal. The reception was held in La Toundra, a stunning venue that was built as the Canadian Pavillion for Expo 67. It was absolutely beautiful. My daughters orchestrated the entire event, and the family helped with various tasks the week before the wedding. (Note colorful paper flowers which were in abundance throughout the venue.) I can’t think of a better way to celebrate. Here are a couple of shots of the park, and a favourite shot of the wedding party. (all part of the adventure)garden flowers park view wedding party

Totally textured

Here’s my submission to the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture. There are many examples where texture becomes a pattern so I tried to find examples where you could easily see the texture. Since the first two I found are green, they would also fit with the DPS (Digital Photography School) challenge this week – green! The first photo shows part of a glass sculpture from Chihuly Garden and Glass in Seattle. The others are organic – plants and trees from my travels. Which one do you like best?green glass green grass tree trunk palm trunk
