a moment of reflection


 

Amidst the tranquil beauty of the Nitobe Memorial Garden on the University of British Columbia campus this morning this moment of reflection made my day,
hopefully it will make yours too.

 
Vimy Ridge Day 2019, commemorating the 3,598 killed and 7,004 wounded members of the Canadian Corps at the Battle of Vimy Ridge in Northern France from April 9th to 12th, 1917, with photos from our moving visit to the Canadian National Vimy Memorial, Vimy in 2012. 🇨🇦

that moment when

you have to pause and simply marvel at the magic before you
 
Last night I was reading on the sofa and looked up to see these silouettes on my windowsill appear against the sky of a glorious sunset. A magical moment that needed to be savoured and recorded until the setting sun was gone and the magic was over.

welcome to the family


After many years of faithful service my Pentax Kr, my fourth Pentax since 1970, finally gave up the ghost. You will have seen many of its creations on the changing palette since I first started blogging in 2013.

I’m happy to report that a used Pentax K5 in perfect condition joined the family on the weekend and already feels very much at home. Clearly the beginning of another beautiful friendship as you can see from this morning’s walk.

Time to say “thank you” to my old friend and “welcome to the family” to my new one.
