No surprise our Sunday couldn’t face the news conference as she took the “catastrophic mistake” remark rather personally for some reason.

Sunday best

Happy Easter

Last week’s light painting photograph was a happy surprise.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

 

A surprise awaits you in Toronto

 

You can learn all about this historic Toronto landmark, The Gooderham Building located at 49 Wellington Street East, here at Canada’s Historic Places. The beautiful trompe l’oeil mural is by the renowned Canadian artist Derek Michael Besant.

snowy no longer

I think you all know that Kitsilano Beach here in Vancouver is my photographic muse having shared so many images with you at different times of the year. You may remember those snowy Kits days last December, which I featured in backdrop to a life, and the snowy willow painting that followed.

      

This morning the sun was back all too briefly as the rain will be returning tomorrow, but once again Kitsilano shone in the morning sunshine, and that snow-covered willow is snowy no longer. Here are a few more views from my morning walk today for you to enjoy.

    

    

 

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.

Since our memorable 2012 visit to the Canadian National Memorial in Vimy I have posted many of my photographs from that moving visit over the past four years together with my¬†video Lest We Forget made from those photos. To commemorate today’s solemn celebrations I am posting links to two of the posts for those of you who might wish to revisit them and welcome those of my new followers who might be¬†interested in seeing them for the first time.

Remembering The Battle of Vimy Ridge: April 9-12 1917

Lest we forget.

from darkness to light

This beautiful bouquet of tulips was painted with light in the darkness of the studio at the end of the day on Tuesday bringing a moment of respite, which I hope it does for you today.
