Day 26-28 of 30 day photo challenge

I spent the weekend camping in Tofino, on Vancouver Island (, a beautiful place with very little internet.  As a result, I am posting days 26-28 as one post.


Day 25 of 30 day photo challenge: Brought to you by the colour red

It is hard to believe that the 30 day challenge is almost over.  And while I realize that I am quite the creature of habit in the places that I go (work, same walking route with the dog, my garden), I still find new photo taking opportunities.

And today, red seemed to be everywhere.

Day 24 of 30 day photo challenge

Fall is coming here which includes rain and sun, often at the same time.

I am always amazed at the tenacity of water droplets to hold to a surface.  This, of course, makes for interesting pictures.

Fall is also the time of contrasts.  Of falling leaves

And new growth

Day 21 of 30 day photo challenge

It is hard to believe but the 30 day challenge is 2/3 of the way through.  And still finding new things to photograph in my backyard.

Today, the focus is the fine crop of mushrooms that are coming up with less light and more moisture.  Here are a few pictures before they are cut down by the lawnmower.

Day 20 of 30 day photo challenge: Lawnbowling

Today, I borrowed my daughter’s nikon D3000 and went to watch some friends lawn bowl at a fundraiser for the Cancer Society.

This lead to good pictures of the bowlers

And the landscaping

Day 19: Tough subject: A kitten

Today’s photo challenge was a special photo shoot with my daughter’s roommate’s kitten.  It was tough getting her to stay still.

Here is a selection of the photos:

And one of a flower after the rain

Day 17 of 30 day photo challenge with 3d printing

Originally, my post was going to be pictures of moss, lichen and such,

but then I saw a 3d printer at work.  This presented an opportunity for some pictures (with the finished product to come later.)
