Amazing to think that tomorrow will be the last day of 2011, isn’t it? How did that year go by so quickly?
I thought I’d share with you some of the photos I have encountered on my walks around the neighbourhood, lately, and what they made me think about.
How gorgeous is this? Look at the waterfall and the contours on the rocks. Some of the street artists around here are very talented. If I was a poet this type of scene would inspire me to write a haiku, but sadly, my poetic skills are lacking and the closest I can come is a very bad limerick….
A lot of people tell me this bakery is very good but every time I see the sign for some reason I think of Sweeney Todd and how the victims were put in the pies and I wonder what this bakery is putting in the cakes. It seems like a bakery that would exist in a Stephen King novel, so I think I might pass on it for now.
How sexy is this graffiti girl? Look at the lips and the eyes. She’s painted on a door. I bet a lot of people wish they could open the door and there she’d be, for real. Is it just me or is she really hot?
What is it with me and birds? This duck looks like he wants to kill me. If you click on the photo it will enlarge and you will see the glaring intent in his eyes. First it was the crow and now it’s the duck. I feel like I’m in an Alfred Hitchcock movie….
This is probably my favourite boat on the bay at the moment. I love the shape of it, the colours, the size. It seems to invite stories about sailing alongside dolphins and going to the best spots to catch the sunlight on the water.
Thank you for coming with me on my walks this year and for indulging me in my quirky, photographic observations. It’s been fun for me. I hope it has for you too.
