Farm Dogs and Cows

image of a large field with a black dog running in the distanceI went to visit a friend yesterday and took a walk with her in her fields.

That’s Mabel, the dog, running ahead in the distance.

Garden Flowers

After four years of summer neglect, my garden is rolling along. Lots of weeds and definitely needs some tidying up, but it’s doing pretty well, considering.

The Lambs Ears (above) are happy with their temporary home. Continue reading

Overpass, Overhead and Over Land

image of crossing overpasses over the 401Two weeks ago I went on a road trip with a friend who was good enough to do much of the driving.

I finally got a chance to snap some shots of the amazing architecture that spans parts of the 401.

I’m in awe at these incredible structures and their asymmetry. Continue reading

Mom Says It’s All Going To Be OK

image of rainbow over suburban house in london, ontarioFor those of you who don’t already know, my mom, Bernice Vincent, died on Friday, March 25th.

You can read the obituary, a kind tribute by James Reaney, and an interesting article in the London Free Press. Or review her career as an artist on her web site.

Here I post this rather poor photo, taken two hours after her burial. After a weekend of mixed weather including sun, warm, cold, rain, snow, sleet, cloud and clear, the day of mom’s funeral was primarily sunny with swaths of interesting cloud.

At the cemetery someone looked up and said, “it’s a Bernice Vincent sky.” Someone else piped up, “they’re ALL Bernice Vincent skies.”

After we got back to mom’s place and were beginning to relax, the clouds, very briefly, opened up, then broke with sun in the west. For just a few minutes, hovering over the house, was this rainbow.

 

Thank-you, mom,

for everything.

Late Winter Fields

image of textured white clouds with blue sky over rust gold late winter field with sparse snow and barns in the distanceIt’s certainly been a while since I’ve posted.

Needless to say, there’s been a lot going on that has kept me from my regular photo habit.

image of winter field with bright sun shining through blotchy white cloudsI’ve still got a lot on my plate, but things are getting done and time is passing.

Spring will arrive soon. And after that, summer. It seems even then I will be posting only occasionally.

I hope when the fall comes ’round again, I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled photo posts.

In the mean time, I’ll keep sending out photos as best I can.
