My Monday walk

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt

I’m trying to get back on track with a lot of things – I really am.  I got a lot of gardening done on the weekend (and there is more to do, but there is ALWAYS more to do).  And yesterday I went for a walk after work.  Ok, not a run, but I did go for a hour and 17 minute walk (thanks Runtastic!)  And I did walk briskly, at least between short stops for taking pictures.

That’s right.  I went for a walk with my camera, and not just any camera, my DSLR of The Great Blogging A to Z Challenge (which is why I had to walk – can’t run with that baby)!  Turns out I need to work on my camera skills again.  Many of my pictures came out blurry or too bright.  Gotta review my posts!!

Anyway, here is some of the things I encountered on my walk – the pictures that kind of turned out ok anyway…




The “Sorry” kind of gives it away that we’re in Canada, eh?


Bees everywhere, and none of them helpfully staying still for a photo op


The seagulls, however, enjoyed posing


As did the bridge



Couldn’t get a clear shot of the ducklings no matter what I did.  Maybe time to try one of my auto modes?


I’d never seen Moss Lady before – she was pretty cool!



And this was the last of my DSLR shots for my walk.


I’m going to try for a walk and maybe a run today too – we’ll see what happens!

  1. The moss lady is cool…so imaginative! That’s a lovely place to walk, it reminds me of the Lake Michigan shoreline west of here, where there is great scenery and an excellent bike trail. Enjoy the outside and sunshine today!

  2. Moss lady is awesome! 😀

  3. Love Moss Lady – also the sorry sign and the lovely reflection in the seagull photo.

  4. What a beautiful little spot you live/work near, close enough to walk to! That’s awesome!

    Bees here won’t stay still for pics either. I guess it’s a bee thing.
