Random Friday

I was going through my photos for my One Photo project, and I came across some I liked but they just weren’t my favourite shot, so I sort of just discarded them.  On second look, I actually liked them, so I figure, what the heck.  In honour of Friday, I’ll post them here.  I’ve caught another cold, and have been resting up this week, and trying to work away little by little on my todo list.  It’s coming along, but one cold after another is simply not helping anything!

From shooting this last week…:

To shooting this:

And another rainy shot from the 1st.  I was sort of shocked by the way the water droplets magnified the texture in the leaf.  Happy Friday!

April 8th : Fav of the Week

Growing up my family had a memorable book of short stories.  My brothers and sister had read it when they where younger, and, I being some years behind them, had it passed on to me.  I had my favourite stories within its pages.  “The Grumble Family” and “The Pink Tree”.  As a child I thought there couldn’t be a better story than one about a tree that turns pink in the spring.  Moving to west coast, I get to see pink trees everywhere. Every spring. And I’m not sure there’s anything that quite fills me with anticipation like cherry blossoms.  Cherry blossoms let me know that Spring is here.  I’ll be able to put away my collection of grey sweaters, and pull out my t-shirts.  Blossoms let me know that soon, I’ll be able to spend a quiet sunlit evening outside.  Maybe even pulling out a well-worn hardcover, and reading my kids a couple of their favourite stories.  Which just happen to include  “The Grumble Family”  and “The Pink Tree”.

This was my One Photo today.  

Fav (read: only) of the Month

I figure I better post today as it’s the 31st.  I mentioned on my onephoto blog how this photo of medication in its bubble pack, sums up March.  And, I plan to do better in April.  I am actually staring at a blue patch of sky out my window right now.  That inspires me to believe that April really is going to be a better month than March was.  Ok, and the sun was briefly shining through the window.  Yup April is going to be better than March.
