Photo Challenge: Seasons

I went for a great walk today. Great for several reasons. The weather right now is outstanding, the sun is shining, I had my camera and I live near gorgeous park areas. Even though the weather can be unpredictable and seasons difficult to clearly identify, I feel like today was a perfect spring day. I’m not saying we shouldn’t expect more winter, but today it was spring.

Plants are thinking about coming to life. There is still some snow and ice around, but most of the pathways are clear, making for good walking conditions. I did find a set of stairs that I’ve obviously walked past many times before. Of course I followed them down, looking for a different route home. My plans were thwarted by icy slopes in the trees and I had to backtrack. I will carry my camera and explore again when the real spring arrives.

I just realized that this is the 400th post I have made. I’m not a big numbers person, but I do love it when someone else keeps track for me!

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.

extra(ordinary) photo challenge

Some of the most extraordinary things present themselves when you go for a walk. Nature just has a way of making that happen. Since we have been enjoying some wonderful autumn weather, I’ve been trying to take advantage. These are a few of my recent extra(ordinary) finds.

Monochromatic

By definition monochromatic means one hue (color) and all the tints, tones and shades formed by adding white, grey or black to that color. I think it’s a challenge to get a good image using monochromatic color schemes. I generally work with more colors because I hate to limit myself. I hope you like my interpretation of the theme. The embroidered flowers are details of embroidery work on Mexican garments shown at the Textile Museum of Canada‘s Frida Kahlo exhibition. (which just ended) The screen printed fabric is a sample I printed this summer, and the mushrooms were in a grocery store in Toronto.
