I had no idea there were so many pelicans in Wascana Park…
The pictures above were taken a couple of weeks ago, so then I had to go into my photo library and have a look at the other pelican pictures I’ve taken, mostly near the Albert Street Bridge. The last two are my favourite, a happy coincidence of good timing and just the right light.
“Not a breath of air stirred over the free and open prairie; the clouds were like light piles of cotton; and where the blue sky was visible, it wore a hazy and languid aspect.”
A quick break from New Orleans pics…this is just south of Regina last week. The last few weeks have been pretty drab here – that in between time when the snow has all melted and everything is boring shades of beige and brown and taupe, but now the trees are starting to bud and little green plants are starting to emerge from the ground. It’s one of my favourite times of the year – when everything is starting to emerge. But even when things are drab looking here, a prairie sky never disappoints.
I’m not a religious person, but I like to take pictures of churches. Blessed Sacrament is Regina’s second oldest church still in use (built in 1905), although it’s currently closed for renovations.
The Honouring Tree was installed in Wascana Centre on August 31, 2011, and I have to admit for all the many, many times I’ve walked around the lake since then, this fall was the first time I noticed it. It was a project initiated by the Saskatchewan African Canadian Heritage Museum Board, and is meant to honour life, legacy, and diversity…
Fog on Monday morning made for mysterious, moody scenes in Wascana Park…fitting for the week of Halloween.
