My fifteen seconds of fame

This morning, we had a good dusting of snow.  Let’s hope that’s it for the winter. (we’re not used to snow here in Vancouver) I went for a walk at lunchtime to see if I could take a photo of the now famous urban beaver who is building a damn in a park.  No sighting today, but a news crew was there covering the story. We got chatting, I told them I’d seen the beaver a couple of weeks ago, and they asked if they could use some of the photos I’d taken for their news story.  They also interviewed me, and I was on the news tonight.  As the title says, it may be my fifteen seconds of fame. (Andy Warhol said everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, but I apparently was short changed.  LOL)  Here are photos from my day.  Enjoy….

    Congratulations Roz! You should submit photo’s to them for their stories that match. CBC Toronto asks people to submit photos related to weather and aired during the weather broadcast. A great addition to the show!

      LOL! Thanks Shelley. Generally I don’t squint into the sun, push my face back and produce 19 chins….Dennis said I look better in real life. But it is HILARIOUS!!!! My beaver was on the news!!!

    I watched it today on FB and like Shelley: so nice to see you in person and hear your voice.

    Can you tell what kind of bird it is in the middle that has spread his wings? Everyday when I drive home I see a couple of them sitting on street lights, usually with their wings spread but I don’t know what they are.

      Hi Fran! I look forward to you seeing me when i’m not squinting into the sun, and scrunching my head back so I have a uni-chin. LOL! Resolution for 2016….maybe quit being so hard on myself. (but it is proven and confirmed, cameras don’t love me) ANYWAY….the bird is a cormorant. They’re not cute, but they are fascinating! (like me! HA!!! Kidding, kidding, kidding…..LOL! Really, I was kidding)

        Hmmm we see things differently: I see my lovely friend with a very nice voice. And yes: you shouldn’t be so hard on yourself but I do understand that, I’m the same.

        Thanks for the info, they are called “aalscholvers” in Dutch. And I don’t think they are cute either. I am always intrigued why they sit there with their wings spread.
