As my plane flew into San Jose on Friday, we travelled over the south San Francisco Bay. Some of the geographic features and human constructions made some interesting shapes. I wondered what some of them were, but mostly I just enjoyed the unusual formations.
Yesterday it rained relentlessly, but today the sun shone and I was once again able to enjoy the harbour in Nanaimo. With no apologies, here are more pictures of this lovely place. And, get ready for take-off.
After I hung out a birdseed feeder, I watched two magpies taking turns to eat the seeds and nuts. They ate about a third of the seed ball in less than an hour.
It was unusually warm for a November day and was about 4 C (39 F) as I walked in Borden Park. It began to rain as I was leaving but I managed to get home before the roads became covered in freezing rain.
The last couple of days have given me lovely views of the morning sunrise. They don’t last long, but while they are there I just want to breathe them in.
When I was visiting the Strathearn neighbourhood in Edmonton with my younger son last month, we stopped to enjoy a lovely little corner of the world. It is a parking area behind a strip mall, and a container garden, and a sculpture gallery all in one. I suspect the sculptures are the work of the […]
K and I enjoyed a nice walk in this new-to-me park today. As we approached the park we passed a golf driving range, a nordic skiing area, and a snowboarding park. Because of the season, the winter sport areas were not in use, but when we arrived at the parking lot for the Strathcona Science […]

After a week of unbearable heat, we were about to have a thunderstorm. We were excited. It felt as though all was right with the world once again. I could hear the thunder and felt the first few drops of rain and then … nothing. All that buildup and anticipation for a very little satisfaction. […]
I have just discovered Adobe Lightroom and am figuring out how to use it. I wanted to find a way to add a copyright to the metadata on my pictures, and several of the videos I found online seemed to recommend this software. Adobe provides seven days free then it costs $13.49 Cdn a month […]
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?Thou art more lovely and more temperate.Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,And summer’s lease hath all too short a date. William Shakespeare
I have a fairly new camera and a very new lens which I tried for the first time today. After a walk to Borden Park, I sat down on a bench to get myself sorted out. Much to my dismay, I realized that I had left my camera on after I had used it two […]
