A Walk in the Park

It was glorious and sunny this morning when I went for a walk with my friend, Lynda, and her two borrowed dogs. Good thing we were out then because now it’s clouded over, windy and cool. Oh, and it is raining. Not that one can’t walk in the rain, but I do enjoy the sunshine! Here are a few of the beauties encountered in the park and surrounding area.

I feel so lucky to live in the midst of this beauty.

 

weekly photo challenge : phoneography – my neighborhood

I’m afraid this challenge took me by surprise. I love using the camera on my iPhone, but my schedule didn’t allow for wandering the neighborhood today. Here are a couple of photos taken from my front steps – a murky view of downtown Calgary, including the Calgary Tower and our tallest office building – The Bow, and another shot taken right in front of our house. You can see a mom pulling a sleigh with her children in tow while their dog trots along. There is always activity in our park – people and dogs enjoying the wide open space (and off leash privileges.) It’s a beautiful park.

I’ve decided to just add to this post instead of posting again. Here are more phoneography photos of my neighborhood.  I went for a walk with my good friend, Catherine. We walked along the river and I took a rest on a snow covered bench.
