“What’s your favourite place near or far,” we are asked for this week’s Photo Challenge.

Not surprisingly here are two of mine.

Olympic Moment VI – Mark Arendz

Thank you and congratulations to Team Canada and to all the athletes of the Pyeongchang Paralympic Games for inspiring us this week, and congratulations to Mark Arendz, Canada’s flag bearer for the closing ceremony, on his six medals including Gold in the 15 K Standing Biathlon. These have been his third Paralympic games since losing his arm at the age of seven in a farming accident.

not just about the medals

Paralympic Moment V

Although Canada’s Michelle Salt may have just missed the podium it’s not only about the medals as her athleticism, optimism and positivity are all inspirational enough.

Hear her “incredible story” in her own words and understand why.

nothing is impossible

yardwork revisited

This week’s Photo Challenge asks us to “do some visual storytelling with your photography.”

In May 2016 I posted a story about how my yardwork became artwork. Since it fits so well with this week’s challenge I thought I would repurpose it for those who may not have seen it before. So…if your interest has been piqued open the photo and read on.
