I’m a little late…

…on Photo Friday’s Challenge this week, but I was having trouble finding anything that met the topic of “Greenery“.

This was taken quite some time ago, May I think, but I think it might be green enough to meet the challenge.  It was taken at Cultus Lake, above it, in fact, on the Seven Sisters Trail.  The “Seven Sisters” are seven old growth giant Douglas Fir trees.  They are impressive.  If you ever get out to Cultus Lake, BC, they’re well worth the walk.


I love the “vanishing point”.

It’s amazing how perspective turns two parallel lines into converging lines.

 


Happy Birthday to me!

“This is the last time I let Robin choose my mode of transportation.  I guess it’s payback for all those years in green tights.”

It was my birthday today and my family, who loves me so much, got me a Batman Lego set.  I stole the bike from another one of my son’s sets of Lego.  Wouldn’t you love to see Batman on a mountain bike?


Holey Moley!

Lame pun?  Check.

Giant concrete supports?  Check.

Cool underground circles?  Check.

Photo of cool graffiti?   Check.


WordPress Photo Challenge: Hopes spring eternal

I was texting my wife while my feet were up on my desk in my office at work.  She asked me how my day was going.  I believe I answered something like, “Craptastic.”  She asked why and I explained that there had been a snafu regarding thirty of my English 11 exams and that there was a steady stream of other craptacular things happening.  She suggested I do something about this, and I answered her, in a text, with the following:

“The past cannot be undone. Only through how we handle the present will we show our true character. Whether we help those in front of us, deal with the situation we are currently facing – these are the things that determine our direction for the future.”

And isn’t that what hope is?  Believing that the outcome of present circumstances will be positive.  So don’t dwell on the past.  Don’t spend your day dreaming of the future.  Believe that your circumstances will turn out positively and then put your hope into action.

And then?  Put your feet up.

WordPress’ Photo Challenge this week is “Hope“.
