What caught my eye this week

I took my camera out of my purse quite often this week…here’s a smattering of what caught my eye…

fantastic clouds - Sunday night-2

Sunday night from the Albert Street Bridge – I love clouds!

clouds on Tuesday night were amazing – missed the orange sky because I was still at work, but these colours weren’t too shabby!

these pelicans were so hard to photograph because the one on the left wouldn’t stay still…

football players have nice arms - 2016 version

Football players have the nicest arms, 2016 edition.  It was a fun night at Mosaic Stadium on Friday night with the Roughriders first win of the season on a 53 yard field goal with about a minute left.  One of those magical moments when everyone was brought to their feet and didn’t stop cheering until the end of the game.

ugh...slugs-2

slugs – I’d never seen one before this weekend, now I’ve seen hundreds! GROSS!

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.

Another of my favourite spring flowers….

this week’s pics

For something different from my other posts, I decided to just choose pictures I’ve taken this week of whatever has inspired me to pick up a camera.

The flowers on my balcony are still blooming nicely…

I needed a fresh air break at work (and a deep breath break – we’re switching to a new system at work, I’m pretty involved in the project and needed five minutes to not think about anything.  Taking pictures of this ladybug with my phone was a nice distraction).

The dishes are done, now time to relax…
