I saw a whole bunch of beauty today.

Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “In This Moment”.  I used this photo from last fall.  This was quite the moment, fog was lifting, sun was shining through, then reflected off the building.   I really was lucky to see this!

23 2 in the moment

Also beautiful?  The sky from our deck this morning!  Well, I thought it was beautiful.

IMG_9307

And more beauty?  A colleague of mine’s gorgeous mehndi from her Sister’s wedding celebrations.

IMG_9320

I had a great lunch with my friend Carli today.  We laughed A LOT!  That was beautiful.  As was our gyoza, double spicy tuna rolls and yellow town rolls.

IMG_9322

IMG_9324

I don’t think many would argue that these blossoms are beautiful…..

IMG_9328

IMG_9318

IMG_9524

IMG_9532

IMG_9871

Unfortunately, work prevented me from getting to yoga in time tonight.  I walked down anyway, to pay my monthly fee and to take a few pictures in the area.  I thought the pop of these hot peppers were pretty against the paper bag….

IMG_9591

…Batman was here!!!  Beautiful!  :)

IMG_9594

…and I would love to play with this Scruffy puppy named Rudy.  He is beautiful!  And VERY energetic!!!

IMG_9924

Now…we move into the “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” section.  I LOVE insects (and snails), but I know some don’t think they’re beautiful.   If that is the case, scroll down…

IMG_9335

IMG_9357

IMG_9403

IMG_9428

..not particularly beautiful, but still entertaining is the huge group of goslings/geese that are in the neighborhood.  The “gawky teens” aren’t so cute and beautiful at the moment….we have bad “hair” days…

IMG_9649

..goofy “runs” because the babies can’t quite fly yet.  They do a whole lot of hopping though.  And preening.  And stretching.  I guess the new adult feathers growing in may itch.

IMG_9675

IMG_9710

IMG_9738

IMG_9754

IMG_9690

IMG_9640

IMG_9487

IMG_9505

There were a couple of “goose flotillas” that went by.  One by a marina, the other by the dragon boat pier.

IMG_9884

IMG_9896

Ducklings are also in the process of becoming adults and getting new feathers, so look a little dishevelled.

IMG_9466

But these are full grown…

IMG_9835

IMG_9856 2

Crows and pigeons….

IMG_9515

IMG_9735

IMG_9875

Again, beauty in the eye of the beholder….this little fella ran in front of my while I was waiting to cross a main road.  He paused, I took the photo, and he was GONE…..kinda gross, but KINDA cute too!   Kinda….

IMG_9941

And finally, some random hearts from today.  Some beautiful, some less so, but all unmistakable hearts….

IMG_9329

IMG_9584

IMG_9593

IMG_9764

Have a beautiful Tuesday everyone!  It is a special day in the land of weightingfor50…..see you then!  :)

Today’s Photo A Day Challenge Prompt is “growing”.  I posted this picture of the first bean to come through the soil in our garden plot.

22 june 22 growing

 

 

Happy to report my energy is slowly returning today.  I still felt tired, but not the wicked tired I had yesterday.  First thing this morning, I walked down to our little garden to have one more radish harvest, replant more, and water and care for everything else there.

On the way down, I saw a bunch of bugs…the first was this green one, he walked onto my hand from a leaf, then wildly flapped his wings.  He didn’t fly away…I have no idea what he was telling me.  And for the record, he smelled bad.

IMG_1863

…this spider was wrapping something up in his web.  Nature can be pretty dark sometimes…

IMG_9189

…speaking of dark…here is a dark coloured insect that was HUGE.  Well, relatively speaking anyway, I’d say he was about the size of a strawberry….

IMG_9192

…and of course, I saw many flying bees….

IMG_9199

I have no idea what this bug is….

IMG_9282

I just LOVE the colour that these hydrangeas are turning….

IMG_9168

…and the little “pinwheel pattern” of these growing leaves caught my eye.

IMG_9206

I also played with this photo in photocat.  I liked the way the shadows were cast, so turned it black and white to get an even bigger shadowy effect.

photocat

Here is our little plot today….

IMG_9211

Today’s harvest (it’ll be very exciting when I pull up vegetables other than radishes… :) )

IMG_9215

This is Jovan and his grandma Pam.  They were just passing by, we started chatting and I let Jovan help me water.  Cute!!

IMG_9217

I came home via the dog park.  Such a happy place!

IMG_9226

IMG_9231

IMG_9251

IMG_9281

Tonight, we had a lovely evening with Cousin Helen.

IMG_9287

We had wine and Caesar salad to start…

IMG_9288

IMG_9289

My dinner was seafood/spinach/tomato pasta, which came with garlic toast….

IMG_9290

IMG_9291

…and dessert was a strawberry parfait.

IMG_9293

Helen’s garden has some BEAUTIFUL iris’ at the moment.  I have to share….

IMG_9298

IMG_9305

Finally, the day’s random heart was down at our community garden.

IMG_9214

That’s it for the weekend.  Have a GREAT first week of summer everyone!!

Hello Summer!!!

Summer-Solstice-SessionToday’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “Here I Am”.  Here I am right by my hairdresser’s.  As you can see, the salon is on Main St.  I’d like to think I channeled my inner Bob Segar, and am looking “Down on Main Street”.  (anyone remember that song??)  OMG…earworm!   Sorry….

21 june 21 here i am

My energy was non existent today.  Weird.  I’m not sure if I’m fighting something, if I just didn’t get enough sleep over the last few days (probably), or what, but I opted out of yoga this morning because the idea of doing a downward dog and any other pose just didn’t work for me.  I slept most of the morning, then went out for a haircut.  On Main St.  :)

While I was waiting for the cut, I noticed this book.  The pop-up book of Phobias!  HA!  Not to be read by people with strong and true phobias….having things pop out at you, even from a book could be, well, scary….

IMG_9128

…I thought it was brilliant.  Here are just a few…

IMG_9130

IMG_9131

IMG_9132

Creepy, but really well done!

When I was walking back to the car I saw some lovely blooms….

IMG_9139

IMG_9150

…a very funky tree trunk….

IMG_9140

…and an Inukshuk adorned with a green shamrock bow tie.

IMG_9142

After my haircut, I came home and napped for a couple of hours.  DEFINITELY not normal for me…my body was telling me something today, so I listened.  It meant I didn’t get things done today that I’d planned, but oh well.

Tonight, we had a lovely dinner with our friends Melisa and Evan.  Their baby will be here in just a few weeks!

IMG_9158

We had wine (and non alcoholic wine for Melisa – and me, as I was the driver tonight)

IMG_9154

Bread, dips and olives to start….

IMG_9155

LOVE the napkins!

IMG_9157

Dinner was grilled chicken, potatoes and carrrots, and salad with greens, strawberries, cheese and almonds.

IMG_9165

IMG_9164

Dessert was tropical, fruity, light and delicious!

IMG_9167

Today’s random heart was found in ‘Baby’s’ room.

IMG_9152

IMG_9153

Cute!!!  Thanks Melisa and Evan!!!!

My energy and I will be back tomorrow!  Happy Solstice everyone!!!!

Catching up with the Photo A Day Challenge, since I didn’t post yesterday.  The prompt for the 19th was “Habit”.  I certainly have my habits..some good (I’m a fantastic little flosser, if I don’t say so myself!! :)), some less so (no details needed – ask Dennis)…but none of my habits are unusual, interesting or particularly easy to photograph.  Know what else is hard to find?  NUNS wearing habits!!  Nope, couldn’t find a living breathing nun, or a picture of a nun, or a greeting card with a nun, or a solar powered waving nun……I found NONE of those!  :)   I was fretting a little, but was walking to work this morning and saw a complete stranger smoking.  I asked him if I could take a picture of his fingers and the smoking cigarette.

19 june 19 habit

He acknowledged he had a bad habit, and also asked that I didn’t use his name or any identifiable body part when I posted the picture.  He is (in his words) a “closet smoker” and doesn’t want anyone to know.  I respect that Mr. Smoker, but sincerely hope you quit sometime soon!  :)

Today’s challenge prompt is “YAY”.  I used this picture from a few months ago, of a Dad and his daughter playing, and yelling YAY every time she went in the air.  The Dad’s name is Dave, and he gave me permission to post on social media (meaning my blog) so I assume it is ok to post on the photo a day site too.  YAY!!!!!

20 june 20 yay

And there is also nothing more “YAY worthy” than a good game of “toss the baby”!  KIDDING!!!!!

Quick menu recap, then we’ll get to a few pics from the day:

Breakfast was Oh She Glows chia pudding with stewed plums and 2 tbsp granola.  (I ate at my desk, and grossed out a couple of my co-workers.  I acknowledge it wasn’t pretty, but it was good!)

Lunch also grossed a couple of my fast food eating colleague out…but oh well.  It was my massaged kale salad with nutritional yeast, mango, grapes and light feta.

Dinner:  I made mini turkey meatloaves with roasted vegetables and curried rice.  So good, so healthy.

Extras:  green juice, greek yogurt, a little granola bar, radishes, some blueberries and 1/2 bottle (yup) of white wine.

Here are the pics from the day….

Yesterday, I picked the “bouquet o’ radishes”…..

IMG_8745

…and when I washed and cut the roots off today, I found that the radishes have, in fact, be grown with love!  HA!  Me and my “hearts”….

IMG_9024

Neva seems to have reverted to her kitten behavior.  She’s climbing where she hasn’t in a long time (she’s suddenly a ‘mountaineer”) and is back to wanting sink drinks…NEVA!!!

IMG_9014

…she also planted herself in a pan tonight, when I was in our pan cupboard and grabbing a different pan from the back.  NEVA!!!

IMG_9113

Crazy cat!!!

During my walk to work this morning, I found yet another snail (I love snails)….

IMG_9020

…and a doll waiting for its owner to find it.

IMG_9016

I also came across a TON of ladybug larvae and ladybugs themselves….

IMG_9026

IMG_9035

IMG_9057

At lunchtime, I went for a walk despite cloudy skies and pending rain…

IMG_9080

…and I found a plastic hand in a curb….

IMG_9062

…so I took it on my walk with me….

IMG_9065

IMG_9067

IMG_9070

IMG_9073

IMG_9077

IMG_9099

IMG_9100

IMG_9101

IMG_9106

Couple of random shots….I LOVE the pattern of this plant…

IMG_9095

…and we had a little visitor on our deck tonight.  (not sure how Neva knows they’re there…she’s deaf, but if a bird is on the deck, we know because she goes into “hunter mode’ and checks them out…)

IMG_9119

Here are a few random hearts (over and above the radish heart)…

IMG_8709

IMG_8833

IMG_8727

Have a GREAT weekend everyone!!!!

Today’s post is going to be a very quick, photo recap of my day.  (it is very late….full details will follow later)

I met Michelle and her famous hand for coffee before work….

IMG_8707

I took a walk at lunchtime and saw beautiful flowers….

IMG_8710

IMG_8711

…the odd bug or two…..

IMG_8720

IMG_8724

IMG_8748

…and I had the second harvest of radishes from our little garden plot.

IMG_8738

Love this picture of a group of kids sitting and watching the world go by.

IMG_8818

After work, I took the train and went downtown.

…note to self, never park my bike (that I never ride :)) beside the train station….

IMG_8838

…some pigeons look like snowy owls…..

IMG_8854

…but some don’t….

IMG_8856

…the sculpture for whatever reason reminds me of Monty Python and the Holy Grail’s Lady of the Lake (with Excalibur)  And all I could think of was that it was a “farcical aquatic ceremony” HA!  Gotta love Monty Python….

IMG_8860

…I added my gum to this public interactive artwork.  Kinda gross I know….but amazing nonetheless.  (and I was very careful to only touch my gum and not the sculpture itself)

IMG_8873

IMG_8885

IMG_8876

…I saw figurines of Neva and I in a window (:) ) ….

IMG_8891

…and a solar waving pope.

IMG_8900

The reason I went downtown was to attend my nephew Ryan’s high school graduation. CONGRATULATIONS RYAN!!!!

IMG_8938

IMG_8925

IMG_8983

IMG_8985

OK…it’s REALLY late, so I’ll sign off and be back with a more news tomorrow.  Happy Friday all!!

Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “quirky”.  I used this picture from last summer of the quirky tradition at Vancouver Canadians Baseball Games – the running of the sushi.  In this particular race, looks like Cucumber Roll beat California Roll, and wasabi fell and didn’t finish the race.

18 june 18 quirky

This is doubly appropriate today, because it is, in fact, International Sushi Day!  That in itself, is quirky as well!!

Today has been a non-routine day because I worked off-site for the bulk of the day.  (way off site…I was about an hour commute from my regular workplace)  Eating has been a bit “all over”, and my normal exercise hasn’t really happened.

I had a weight watchers bagel with peanut butter and banana for breakfast.  Some watermelon before I left.  I had a turkey sandwich there, and some cheese and crackers during a break.  Because I got home MUCH later than normal, and Dennis was also out and about, I picked us up some sushi on the way home.  (that is where I found out about International Sushi Day).  We split the order of gyoza, a California Roll, a Dynamite Roll, a Mr. Green (aka: vegetable) roll.  We both had miso soup too.

IMG_8700

IMG_8703

Also quirky….Neva!  I took this photo of her this morning.  She has no legs!  :)  Is it a cat, or a cushion???  :)

IMG_8503

After my meeting, I “opted out” of an event, and went for a quick walk instead.  I walked to the train through a residential area, a construction zone and a beautiful park….here are a few shots…

Crane reflection….one crane, many images

IMG_8507

…condoms and paper airplanes by the construction zone.  UM….I’d think the park would be a more comfortable place to play.  Just sayin….

IMG_8591

IMG_8617

Shadows….

IMG_8592

IMG_8675

…by the residential complex.  The area can’t spread any more outward, so it’s spreading UPWARD.  There are SO many cranes and highrises around….

IMG_8595

IMG_8616

IMG_8618

As you can see from the following shots, the park is lovely and full of creatures (four and two legged), art, fountains and pathways….

..and one random heart in a book store window beside the sushi restaurant.

IMG_8698

What was the quirkiest thing you did today?  Happy Thursday!!!!

I played catch up with the  Photo A Day Challenge .  Yesterday’s prompt was “In the Shadows”, and today’s was “Peaceful”…

16 June 16 in the shadows

17 june 17 peaceful

All caught up now!

Today, I had yogurt, fruit and granola for breakfast

Lunch was a kale salad with nutritional yeast, light feta, dried cranberries, mango and pumpkin seeds

Dennis and I were ships passing in the night tonight, and we had turkey sausage and scrambled eggs at various times.

Extras – green juice, watermelon, rice crackers & hummus

Exercise – Walk to work, lunchtime ramble, walk home

I felt really lucky when I was out at lunchtime.  I live in the 3rd largest city in Canada, but work/live in areas with lots of green space, close to the ocean and inhabited by creatures other than humans.  I may live in a large city, but I can, for short times, feel like I’m out in nature.

I was up really early this morning, and the clouds before sunrise looked pretty. (this was taken from our deck)

IMG_8193

It has been really rainy here for the last few days.  This plant was hanging on to the raindrops on its leaves.

IMG_8195

I found the standard insects in the area…

IMG_8200

IMG_8213

IMG_8226

IMG_8235

And some non-standard bugs….I found a big cluster of tiny empty eggs and babies.  Amazing!!!!!  Does anyone know what these are?  Beetles?

IMG_8249

IMG_8295

IMG_8273

 

Blossoms and grasses that looked pretty….

IMG_8239

IMG_8317

IMG_8315

IMG_8321

IMG_8427

IMG_8435

The next few pics aren’t SUPER clear, but are well worth sharing.  I saw a mom bird feeding her babies today.  So cute!!!!

IMG_8330

IMG_8341

IMG_8340

IMG_8352

Other birds that I saw….

IMG_8210

IMG_8365

(optical illusion….the on the left was NOT landing on the other)

IMG_8392

IMG_8407

IMG_8413

I found two snails (and you know I love the snails…)

IMG_8490

Boost!

IMG_8494

When they climbed on my hand (as they do)  they moved down my forearm.  The race started at my tattoo….

IMG_8458

…and finished at my birthmark….

IMG_8466

…and someone is a sore loser!

IMG_8468

…annnnd, we move on from that silliness!  Here are a few non-critter shots

hmm….if shoes could talk….

IMG_8306

I guess TECHNICALLY there is a critter in this photo.  Peek A Boo….

IMG_8325

Looks like there is a public art forum by the water, the “Stop, Look, Draw” chalk markings are strategically placed, and will be gone when it next rains…

IMG_8416

This one is a LITTLE hard to see, but says “don’t worry about being purrrfect, just draw’…

IMG_8418

…and a man with a balloon and a star were also there.  (Or this is a police chalk outline, and something bad happened here!  HA!)

IMG_8421

It is VERY important to keep left….but don’t follow the arrow…

IMG_8424

Finally, just one random heart for today.  Thank you Mr. Crow…

IMG_8371

I have a question for you….what critters do you find in your neighborhood???

Happy Wednesday!!

Happy Monday!  This will be a very quick post, as it is late.  Why?  I’m SOOOO hooked on 24…didn’t even start this post until Jack Bauer had tried to save the world in another hour!  :)

I haven’t posted my photo a day challenge picture yet, will catch up with that tomorrow.

Today’s menu was:

Breakfast – greek yogurt, leftover fruit from yesterday’s brunch and a hard boiled egg

Lunch – changed plans from a work lunch, so I just went to the local salad bar and had a big salad

Dinner – pasta primavera (made with whole wheat noodles, peppers,mushrooms, zucchini, fresh oregano and basil, tossed with maple balsamic and topped with parmesan)

Extras – Green juice (made this morning from apples, kale, spinach, chard and ginger)…

IMG_7272

..a piece of kamut soda bread and an orange.

Exercise – Walk to work, 1 hour lunchtime ramble, 40 minute walk to yoga and 75 minute hatha yoga class.  (I really struggled at yoga tonight, my mind wanted to hold poses and balance, but my body seemed to have different ideas.  Oh well…just one of those classes I guess)

During my lunch hour, I walked down to our little community garden plot.  It rained for much of the weekend, so the plants were just fine while we were away.  It looked like I needed to thin the radishes…

IMG_7352

…but turns out I could thin and harvest at the same time.  TA DA!!!   As today’s title says, we have achieved harvest!  This was the first pull!  (I should have held it up ‘Lion King’ style to show it off!  HA!  Kidding…)

IMG_7353

IMG_7355

Dennis and I sampled them tonight, and they are delicious!  :)

Also growing are some beautiful blooms in the neighborhood.

IMG_7340

IMG_7473

IMG_7474

IMG_7475

IMG_7476

I found some natural “art” and a few bugs (the ladybug landed on my arm and walked about a lot before she flew off.  I couldn’t resist taking the shot of her walking by my tattoo)….

IMG_7478

IMG_7346

IMG_7469

Cat lovers….get ready to AWWW!!  The mini Nevas are apparently going to their homes THIS weekend, not last.  They are now 8 weeks old.  AWWW!!!!  The one on the right has 2 different coloured eyes, one blue and the other yellow.  The vet thinks she may grow out of that and one of them will pick up the colour of the other.  AWW

IMG_7407

IMG_7460

Adoption kitten intermission….”Don’t worry Neva, you aren’t going to be replaced!’  AWW, I took this shot this morning.

IMG_7275

Back to the adoptables….the little one with the heart shaped mark has been adopted, and this tabby family have moved into his space.  Mum and two stripey babies!  AWWWW!!!  Aren’t they gorgeous?

IMG_7424

IMG_7413

IMG_7401

Speaking of babies….most of the little goslings are almost mature, however, they were very photogenic this evening….and many are still “aww” worthy!

IMG_7557

IMG_7641

IMG_7681

IMG_7859

IMG_7899

IMG_8065

Other birds of note….pigeons make nice foreground sometimes…

IMG_7488

…very reflective…

IMG_7516

Is it a heron, or a flamingo!?  A heron, but nicely done…  :)

IMG_7395

Is it a boy or a girl?  Only this goose found out today…

IMG_7541

The day’s random hearts will almost all require squinting and imagination  ;)

IMG_7291

IMG_7359

IMG_7362

IMG_7399

It’s bedtime…and time for me to publish.  Happy Tuesday to all!!!

BIG Happy Father’s Day to MY Dad!! (here he is with my Mom today)

IMG_6934

And to all Dads out there.   Whether Dads are still with us, or if they’ve passed, it was a day to celebrate them all!!!

Before I recap the day, today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “Lovely”.  I posted when we got home, so quickly grabbed this shot from last week.  Not only was the rose lovely to look at, it smelled lovely too!

15 june 15 lovely

This morning, while I popped out for brunch ingredients, Dennis mowed my parent’s lawn.  He looks good with a lawnmower, doesn’t he!?  :)  (we live in an apartment, so it was fun for him)

IMG_6903

Instead of mimosas, we had “Happy Planet Abundant-C” juice (orange, mango, and strawberry) with some sparkling wine.  Cheers to all the Dads!!

IMG_6932

What a happy cap the Happy Planet company uses on their juice bottles!!  :)

IMG_6905

We made one of my Dad’s favorite brunches, Eggs Benedict with home fries and fruit.

IMG_6941

IMG_6942

IMG_6943

Then, it was sad, but we had to say ‘bye’.  :(  However, we had a great visit, and we’ll see my folks again soon!

IMG_6945

IMG_6944

(my parents are cute! :) )

The next section will be called the “Critter Corner”.

I managed (after several futile attempts) to photograph my beloved hummingbirds that visit my parent’s feeder.  Damn, they’re lovely!

IMG_6914

…this little fella was MUCH more willing to have his picture taken.  This is on my parent’s deck.  He was hopping around while I was waiting for the hummingbirds.

IMG_6890

Eagle number 1 today, from my parent’s deck….

IMG_6871

…eagle number 2 today, by the ferry.  They are HUGE!  And gorgeous!!!

IMG_7240

A few insects, in my Dad’s garden, and at the ferry terminal.

IMG_6865

IMG_6990

IMG_7034

We were driving beside this critter.  Creepy, in a hilarious canine way!  Cute!

IMG_7231

Enough critters….also at the ferry terminal, painted boxes that caught my eye, and signs that caught my eye and made me laugh because I’m childish!  :)

IMG_6974

IMG_7037

There was some BEAUTIFUL clouds on the crossing home.  Strange thing is, when I was taking these photos, it was actually raining.   I was hoping for a rainbow, but mother nature wasn’t up for it today!

IMG_7109

IMG_7130

IMG_7228

There was also some amazing “ocean swirling” where cross currents were meeting.  There were a bunch of little ‘vortexes’ on the water….  I’m sure there is a much more scientific term that ocean swirling vortex…but we’ll leave it at that tonight.

IMG_7171

IMG_7172

And once we were through the cross current area, all was relatively calm again…

IMG_7180

IMG_7057

Once we arrived on the mainland, the funky clouds continued….anyone else see a dragon in the cloud?

IMG_7251

I thought this photo was ironic and sad….I took a picture of the beautiful clouds through a MASS on ugly, man made power lines.  I know we all need power, but this just seemed like such a sad contrast of natural and man made.  Artsy fartsy, isn’t it?  :)

IMG_7247

On a brighter note though, I found some random hearts….on my Dad’s deck…

IMG_6870

IMG_6872

…in the cross current….

IMG_7168

…and my surprise heart of the day.  Look at the reflective light in the middle of this picture.  Seems like a colourful heart to me.  (I’m a little smitten with this picture)

IMG_7089

That’s the weekend.  I hope all of you had a great weekend!  Love to all Dads!!!

Hi from my parent’s place in Victoria.  We are over for Father’s Day, but had another celebration too.  More on that in a sec.

We had our usual ferry breakfast, english muffin with egg.  When I went to buy them, I whipped through the little marketplace at the terminal.  The decoration of the rocky road gelato cracked me up…

IMG_6458

…mineral make up….

IMG_6460

…wearables….

IMG_6462

IMG_6463

…and whimsicals…..

IMG_6465

IMG_6466

While boarding, we saw a very very wet crow….

IMG_6467

…and silhouette birds against the cloudy sky…

IMG_6482

IMG_6500

Pretty rough morning for the birds beside the ferry….

IMG_6508

IMG_6514

My mom is recovering pretty well from her multiple surgeries in April.  She was very excited to be at the grocery store this afternoon.  :)

IMG_6570

I need to google and see what on earth I’d use this for….

IMG_6569

Dennis and I went for a little walk later in the afternoon, and found a yard that had 6 deer all grazing.  AWWW.  This one did a little yoga…

IMG_6597

…love the antlers at this angle….

IMG_6599

..photobomb!  (look on the left)  :)

IMG_6603

These two were grooming each other.  Awww….love the care and love!

IMG_6645

IMG_6652

IMG_6654

We also saw a very smiley dog….

IMG_6710
