Can you believe someone would throw this away? I found it in the garbage!
Don’t worry…I cleaned it extremely well before using.

Red Wheelbarrow

Gotta get my ass in gear and learn how to use photoshop I guess...

On our way back home from Sudbury, we decided to stop in Killarney for some fish and chips. We found this red wheelbarrow across the street.

More Clouds

leave a comment »

Tonya, do you mind if we pull over and sit on the side of the road for a couple of hours for a time lapse?

I wish I could’ve taken a timelapse of these clouds. I think we were on the edge of a weather system. You could see the 2 layers of clouds moving independently. A cold front moving in under a warm front.

Curvy Desks

I guess it's hard to maintain decorum in the middle of a sword fight.

On our tour of the BC Legislature, we learned that these curves had to be introduced to accommodate the increasing numbers of MPPs. I wonder if they were careful to maintain a 2-sword length distance between the government and opposition benches as is tradition.

Clouds

I've always thought it's amazing that, close up, they appear precisely how I imagined they would be...

I love looking at big fluffy white clouds while flying…

Turtle and Catfish

Gotta love symbiosis...

We went on a hike to Rattle Snake Point on the Bruce trail near Milton last weekend. Mario took this amazing picture of a catfish eating the algae off a snapping turtle. The sun seemed to be illuminating the lake from below.
