I am up to 12,382 words out of 2K for my Clarion Write-A-Thon commitment (support Clarion here!) and could safely say I wrote twice today’s 382 words… it’s just that I cut 300 first.
I would also like to say that had I known that one day I could run a bowl of fruit through a Photoshop filter and come up with a smudgy-pastel sketch of a still life, I probably wouldn’t have expended any effort at all on art, in school or as an extracurricular activity. I am now eagerly awaiting the iPad app that allows me to effectively figure skate and do balance beam routines.
Just a random assortment of images from my various travels over the last few weeks… enjoy!
I’m still getting to know Stanley Park a bit better; saw my first duckling of the season yesterday on a walk around Lost Lagoon, and checked to see if there were any heron babies. The swans are nesting and the thing I find most remarkable about this is how incredibly huge the nests are. There were scaups galore (lesser, I think) and a billion red-winged blackbirds, too.
So swans you shall have, my Snuffy! Here’s what I got yesterday when I took a loop around Lost Lagoon.
I have a second post of the heron pics in the works, with text and all, but I wanted to see what would happen if I hit a tempting looking button on Flickr. And Whazam! All the birds I loaded today are at your disposal. Okay, that’s COOL!
