Sometimes a good photo is all about the place and time, and has little to with the photographer or their equipment – as is the case here. I snapped this picture out the window of a speeding van with my broken down Samsung Galaxy S3 one sunny morning leaving Da Nang, Vietnam. It is also the subject of my most popular tweet to date on Twitter (small victories). Da Nang was lovely because we had the place to ourselves. It was a slow city, and our first real taste of the beach on that trip.
This is Brissy. She is an Australian Sheppard (a.k.a. Aussie) who loves her job, and does it well. Besides being a family dog, Brissy works together with her partner to be a top notch agility dog! I had the chance to see this wonderful dog run an agility demo recently, at the Grand Opening of North Bays first Off-Leash Dog Park. You can check out more Dogs in Motion from the Dog Park here.
Besides seeing a dog doing what she loves, I enjoy these photos because of the rich colors that frame them. Perfect for this weeks Daily Post Photo Challenge – Colors of the Rainbow.
One of my favorite activities in Vietnam was simply walking down the streets in a new location, and seeing what the street vendors had for sale. If it could fit in your pack, chances are it could be found on the street – whether you were looking for jewelry, clothing, food, or in this case plate ware.
This red trillium goes by a number of names, but my grandmother always called them ‘Stinking Johnny’s’. They bloom annually in the spring, some of the first flowers to show after a long winter. Response to The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for this week!
I adore this photograph. I annoyed my dive instructor and dive mates to get it so I’m glad it was worth it. Running late one Sunday morning, I snapped this picture looking across Lake Ramsey towards Laurentian University (Sudbury, Ontario). The lighting, color and peacefulness of the shot is everything I could have hoped for.
