A quick post featuring a photo taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood.

The yellow Ivy leaf caught my eye.

Weekend Challenge: Sunshine Yellow

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Sunshine Yellow.

I decided that sunrise and sunset images were too obvious so went looking for the unusual. Then I decided to go with photos taken on my various walks around the neighborhood.

A yellow cap on a plywood figure on the South Bruce Peninsula. Unusual because most of these plywood figures have cowboy hats.

Two yellow Lady’s Slipper Orchids on the South Bruce Peninsula. A photo from 6 years ago when there was still lots of these Orchids growing wild around the neighborhood. I haven’t seen any for a couple of years. I  suspect that they’ve all been dug up and planted in people’s gardens.

CFFC: Anything Painted

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Anything Painted, from a cabinet to peeling paint.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of this photo of raindrops on the roof of a car. I like the way the raindrops are picking up the colour of the blue paint.

Then I remembered this yellow painted bicycle decorating a garden shed.

CFFC: Hats

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Hats.

Except my contribution is the same “hat” photographed weeks apart with two different cameras and lenses. Also it’s more like a cap than a hat although it’s not really either.

Is it just me or does the plywood figure remind anyone else of Alfred Hitchcock?

On the Hunt for Joy: Plant Sunflowers

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

A few years ago we planted some Sunflower seeds and had some growing naturally in the yard from the wild bird seed.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: From an Unusual Angle

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: From an Unusual Angle.

Given that the Covid-19 restrictions mean that I am basically just following three or four routes when going for a walk I had started photographing the trees from unusual viewpoints a few weeks ago.

Weekly Prompts: Wheels

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Wheels.

Having been digitising my slide archives for a few months I thought about some of the colourful wheels found on old steam traction engines and farm tractors from my years living in Cheshire, England.
