Quite the title….but it will make sense very soon! :)
Today’s Photo a Day challenge prompt is “askew” This weather vane has seen better days….
It is the last day of ‘yellow’ week at 365 Days in Nature. I took this shot of a freshly fallen yellow leaf that fell on the ocean when I was out tonight.
And this picture, also taken today was what I posted on Only Shades of Gray.
Here is the day’s menu collage. Breakfast was a weight watcher’s bagel with 1/2 avocado, I had lunch with my work friends – forgot to take a picture so took an “after” shot – LOL, we had a work celebration with cake, I had a glass of wine and a few of Dennis’ chips/dip, and dinner was a chicken breast with Caesar salad.
I was so lucky tonight! Many of you will remember that I found Oakley, the little Forest Creature of Stanley Park on one of my Lost Lagoon walks a while ago. Oakley has been with me for photo shoots around the city, Victoria, Whistler and Costa Rica. Over the last couple of months, the artist who creates the creatures, Joanne, and I have been in touch. Tonight, she asked me to go to Stanley Park with her, and help her “abandon” 8 little elves that she’s made for people to find. Hopefully some of the finders log on to the Forest Creatures Facebook Group and we know where they’ve gone. I had SO much fun…..and I am so glad we got to meet in person. Here are some shots of the elves (they’re little necklaces). Joanne wrote “take a selfie with your elfie” on their tags. Time will tell if selfies are posted….
And Joanne made me a new elf as a gift. Meet Melindo, who is my new photo companion. :) (Oakley had a rough trip to Costa Rica, and not only lost his oak leaves, he lost his nose on our coffee plantation tour. Poor Oakley…) When we were finished abandoning, I had a little time left on my parking meter, so took a little walk in the park. These are from Melindo’s first photo shoot. (tongue in cheek….and very silly!)
Oakley looks a bit shocked at the new guy.
Thanks Joanne! Tonight was really wonderful!!
Here are non elf shots of my walk in the park.
And a few pictures with captions:
This is not a random heart…it is a random ear.
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands…..
“the front brakes look fine, I’ll just move down and check the back ones now…”
And finally, on the way home I saw the moon through power lines…..oooh, artsy….
Have a great weekend everyone. I’m off to see my Mom tomorrow, and will check in from her house then.
