Blue and White

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Pick a Topic from my Photo prompt.

I went with a mix of topics, tree, blue, sky and cloud. I liked the way the Paper Birch trees stood out against a blue sky. We haven’t seen much blue sky this winter and until a few days ago these Paper Birch trees were inaccessible due to the snow in places.

Blowing Bubbles

This is my contribution to Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Blow Bubbles.

An art school project from the late 1970s. I had two fellow students blowing bubbles and we were popping any that weren’t the right size or location.

CFFC: White and Green

This is my contribution to week 3 of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pick a Topic from this Photo. This week I picked two of the colours highlight by Cee in the prompt that accompanied the week 3 photo. Yes, I know white isn’t technically a colour.

To make it more of difficult I made a rule that the photos I picked had to have been taken in the past year, actually 10 months as I was in rehab until the end of May after my accident. Plus, all photos had to be vertical orientation.

Weekly Prompts: White

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts: White challenge.

Being as it’s winter in Ontario, Canada it was almost ìnevitable that my contribution would involve snow. I did actually try to come up with an alternative to snow but didn’t think of anything I was really happy with.

All the photos were taken in the last month. One was taken an hour or so before posting.

Wind formed patterns in the snow.

Mostly blue with some patches of white

Sunday morning of week 30 saw me down at the Long Dock on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton.

I was struck by the handful of small white clouds over Chantry Island. They seemed to be balancing the white of the lighthouse and the lighthouse keepers cottage on the island.

The lighthouse is fully automated, no one has lived on the island for years but the cottage has been fully restored. The island is a migratory bird sanctuary, as a result most of the island is off limits to visitors taking a tour of the lighthouse and cottage.
