Things That Fly…..and a few that don’t

Just checking in from our neck of the woods.  Again, life was in the way of photo safaris, however, here are more bird pics, planes, an alien “splotch” in a parking lot, and of course, Neva.  Enjoy!

Again….just a few photos

Real life has definitely pushed my photography to the back burner this week.   I’m hoping that changes over the weekend, but for now…. This was an AMAZING and soothing soup/lentil stew I had at a funky little vegetarian restaurant for lunch yesterday.  It hit the spot… On the way there, we saw this face on…

Slices of Life, and more feathers

Just a few quick photos to share today.  More birds in the tree outside of our deck, and some little slices of life that I saw as I was out and about during the last couple of days.  Enjoy!    

Warning….bird centric post

Once a year, usually in November, the tree that is just off our deck is inundated with birds, who devour the little red berries that are obviously ripe.  The activity usually only last a day or so, and though it was pouring with rain, yesterday was that day.  I’ve taken just a few other shots,…

Rainy Season is Here

When I was walking home from work yesterday, I saw SOOOO many mushrooms. They are gorgeous and fascinating, and make a walk in the pouring rain worthwhile.  Have a great weekend everyone!

Day of the Dead

Last night, we joined some friends to go to a Day of the Dead celebration.  It was colourful, the rain ALMOST held off, and it was a little emotional as we’ve lost quite a few friends and relatives ourselves over the last few months.  Here are photos of our evening….enjoy!  

The Adventures of Red….

…Skeleton.  Welcome to the very tongue in cheek and silly adventures of our Halloween friend Red.  Red Skeleton.  Happy Halloween everyone!

Photos from Sunday with my Mom

I was over in Victoria with my Mom yesterday.  We had a bit of a photo safari….and these are the photos from yesterday.  Enjoy.

Just a few from my Saturday

Hi from my Mom’s home in Victoria.  The day started out with a  bright sunrise and sunshine, then came the fog, then came the rain.  As a result, and also because my  mom and I were out and about running errands, I don’t have a ton of photos to share.  However, here are a few….happy…

No Staggering Photos today….

…but this is my Halloween bowl for candy at my workplace… ….another failed attempt to get Neva to wear her witch hat…. …however, Neva was very open to looking at her own reflection in a new mirror….. One of my frogs, just hanging out…. …and trying to get my attention…. And one of two tiny…

The last couple of days

We were lucky to be able to go to the Capilano Fish Hatchery in North Vancouver on the weekend.  The salmon are spawning, and they are visible in the river, and are also using the ladders that the fishery has made for them.  AMAZING!!!  There are also shots of the city, birds, and a sunny…
