Life’s Twists on Flickr.
Today is Thanksgiving Monday in Canada. Last Thanksgiving Monday, work was good, Lisa was 26 weeks pregnant with our son, due in mid January. It was sunny and the leaves were just turning.
I decided to take advantage of the day and made my way up to Queen Elizabeth Park and the Bloedel Conservatory to take some pictures in the morning. Had a remarkably productive day, I think nearly a dozen shots from that day have made it to flickr and two made explore.
Little did I know when taking this photo that less than 24 hours later, Lisa would be checked into BC Women’s Hospital under strict bed rest and another 24 hours after that, we’d be the proud parents of Trajan.
The last year has brought with it more than it’s share of drama, surprise and excitement but, I’ll be damned if it hasn’t in most ways been the best year I’ve ever had.
In the immortal words of Ferris Beuller though; “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
A Splash of Colour on Flickr.
After my series of sexually charged images from the Bob’s Lounge show on Saturday night, I thought I should lighten the mood up a bit.
So, I present, the sex organs of a juvenile flower of some type or another. Spotted this afternoon in the Rose Garden at Stanley Park.
