And now, the first Kitten Thursday of August (and the last one of holidays…)

Oh well.  All good things must come to an end.  Holidays, that is, not Kitten Thursdays!

 

Pictures I took today and yesterday (July 19 and 20)

Yesterday, my Aunt and I went for a walk in Beacon Hill Park.  I wanted to show her the park, but especially the Heron nesting area.

We saw all the nests high at the top of the trees, but there didn’t seem to be a lot of feeding or baby action.

We did see some adults flying around

And then saw this fellow in a tree near one of the little lakes.  We were able to get very close – seemed a bit unusual for a heron.

Then near the nests we saw these guys wandering around on the ground – ah…the babies are out of the nests!!  I don’t know how they get back up – one hopes they are flying now!

Today, mom and my Aunt and I wandered around the gardens at Government House.  Here are some of the things I saw…

RagTag Daily Prompt 49: Welcome

A response in starting over with a new daily avoidance (or non-avoidance, as the case may be), here with the Ragtag Daily Prompt (https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2018/07/19/rdp-49-welcome/), today is Welcome.

Welcome to the world, late ducklings…

July 17 – Pictures I took today

Ok, ok, I know.  This post is  a day late.  It was all cued up and ready to be posted, but I went and got comfy last night and forgot.  But here are the photos I took on a walk with my Aunt (visiting from Texas) yesterday along the water near where my mom and dad live.

Lots of sailing action.

And a little piano action too!

Those are all well and good, but you know the kind of photos I really like to take!

 

And finally – I think they need their money back for those spikes!

Cee’s Which Way Challenge: July 13, 2018

And heeeeere’s… Cee’s Which Way Challenge!   https://ceenphotography.com/2018/07/13/cees-which-way-photo-challenge-july-13-2018/

“This challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.”

It’s all about the little steps we take…

Oh, and I didn’t take any steps today because I spent ALL day painting doors and door frames.  I need a weekend to recover from my holidays!!

July 6: Pictures I took today

Today I decided I needed more practice with the new(ish) 100mm macro lens.  I continue to work on my focus, remembering the distance I have to stand away from something to get a decent shot, and fighting the breeze for macro shots, but I got some interesting ones today.

Oh my walk along Dallas Road

Down by Fisherman’s Wharf

Then along the waterside path to the inner harbour

And finally behind the Legislature before heading home

And now I am feeling much more comfortable with this lens!

Three Days, Three Quotes #2

While I don’t normally take on nominated challenges, I’ve seen this one floating around for a few weeks and was intrigues.  So, I was nominated by The Haunted Wordsmith to add my three days three quotes post to the mix.  Thanks for the nomination!

The rules are:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for three consecutive days.
  3. Nominate three bloggers each day.

And now, for today’s quote.

“I do not like green eggs and ham.

I do not like them, Sam-I-am”  Dr. Seuss

The eternal struggle.

I once performed Green Eggs and Ham with a friend.  I played bass, he played something else…drums?  I don’t remember now.  He is a pianist, but I am pretty sure he was not playing piano.  Anyway, we recited Green Eggs and Ham while beatnik jamming.  For a concert.  It was a hoot!

 

Three Days, Three Quotes #1

While I don’t normally take on nominated challenges, I’ve seen this one floating around for a few weeks and was intrigues.  So, I was nominated by The Haunted Wordsmith to add my three days three quotes post to the mix.  Thanks for the nomination!

The rules are:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for three consecutive days.
  3. Nominate three bloggers each day.

And now, for today’s quote.

“So long and thanks for all the fish.”   Douglas Adams.

Why?  Why not??  I once used this quote to thank everyone I worked with when I was leaving my job.  Some people got it… 🙂

Now, I won’t nominate anyone specifically (already breaking the rules, as you knew I would), but if you would like to join in, please do!!  I hope I remember to post #2 tomorrow…

Oh, it’s Caturday!! Well, it is in my bubble

A response in not as much avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/bubble/

I was in a bit of a bubble yesterday.  I had my photography class field trip into Chinatown and while I took tons of photos, I completely forgot to finish posting Caturday.  These guys are not amused…
