A Day With My Camera

April 1, 2009

This week, Brandi’s challenge was to go on a bit of a photo safari. I’m not a photographer, but I do like to take pictures. Nature is usually more my thing, trees, birds, flowers etc. But today, I took my camera with me all day, and when I remembered, I snapped a picture or two. So come on, let’s go, you’re coming with me through my day.  (you can click on all of these to make them larger, some were left very large so you can see more of the detail.)

As I left for work, it was a beautiful sunny day.

Not sure why I took this one, it’s the gate to my backyard. But I like it.

img_1374This is the view from where I sit at work every day. I am thankful to be working. Very thankful.

img_1376Coffee time.  This is breakfast. Every day at 10am I have coffee with a very good friend who used to work with me. He was let go in the first round of cut backs a few years ago. Thankfully, he now works across the street. I am also very thankful to have so many great friends.

img_1410When I returned home, I noted that my tulips are doing quite well.

img_1413After dinner, I went for a walk on the trail. These shoes always catch my eye.

img_1430I love this old abandoned building and it’s faded sign.

img_1433The faded sign on the front is different. Is it spelled wrong?

img_1434This is a fork on the trail I was on.

At this point, the sun was setting and chose to head back home.

That’s all. I hope you enjoyed my little photo tour.

    Very fun! I love the shimmer of light on the water of the little river. Rivers always look so *alive* to me.

    The canal here in Ottawa is slowly melting. One more warm week and we’ll have waves too!

      Lol…the stack of change, yes I meant to comment about that. I wanted to say that I was grateful for having enough money to buy a coffee every day without having to think twice, and thankful that I resisted buying the donut. 🙂

    You must never ever again say you are not a photographer.
    You have “the eye” and it catches beautiful scenes, and interesting objects (the gate)…and much much more…all well done!!!!
