Photo Dump

“We take pictures to record our personal vision of the world.”
- Anonymous – (Nikon slogan)

Earlier this week, my blogging pal, Carolyn, wrote...your interpretation of your surroundings is through your lens” in response to a comment I made on one of her posts.

This made me smile because she is absolutely right. I am a visual person, and what I capture through my camera lens is exactly that: an interpretation of my surroundings as I see them. The pictures I take are my personal vision of the world as I journey through this amazing thing we call life.

Here is this week’s round of photos...

The Canadian flag on top of this building has seen better days.

These windows look like they could us a little spring cleaning.

There is so much gray and white in winter.

Watch your step...to nowhere.

A splash of colour in an otherwise colourless winter is always welcome.

A young feathered friend.

The most amazing man in the world following the sign's instructions.

Even a close up of a wall can be visually interesting.

Frozen Lake Ontario in late afternoon.

Window reflections, and an interesting wall on an old building in the University section of town.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

  5. The close shot of the wall is fascinating… it almost look unreal! Did you notice your feather friends, the spots looks like heart shape? Who knows maybe your next photo dumb would have flowers blooming… wouldn’t that be something!

    1. I didn't notice until you mentioned it. That is pretty amazing! Yes, it would be something if my next round of photos was of flowers. But I doubt it. It doesn't look like anything is ready (or willing) to come out of hiding! LOL...

  14. Yes Martha, these are all great photos! I really appreciate how you frame your shots.....no excessive detail to distract the viewer.
    The frozen lake photo took me around the corner of the fence.....great lines in this!
    And the last one is a winner!

  16. ohhh just catching up ! Charlie's here and well… it's GRAMMA time…

    AND … yes, I love your pictures … you see things I don't. That's what makes us all so unique ~ how we see our world. no right or wrong just the wonderful difference.

    The Canadian Flag is tattered. How interesting … here, if I'm not mistaken, you can be fined for flying a tattered flag. You can not fly it … I do know that.

    HAHaaa Watch for falling ice/snow…

    As always … great photography, Martha… and Good Morning! I hear Charlie waking up… yay! and ohhhh baruther … here comes the day! haha

    1. Thank you, Carolyn! I bet you're happily drowning in grandbaby love :) I'm not sure if you can fly a flag like that here. I am now very curious about it. I'll have to check that out.
