That said, I hope you'll indulge me in my efforts to improve my photo game by checking out what ya girl has been snappin' lately. I take my camera with me almost everywhere - from my own home to the beach to restaurants to walks. Behold:
Spiders love my porch. LOVE it. I knock down spider webs almost everyday (it's necessary, or else I literally could never go out onto my porch in the warm months), but they rebuild every single time. Resilient little mofos.
I spotted these three amigos walking together on the lawn at Kits Beach,
looking like they were off to an afternoon friendship gigglefest:
Look what I found reflecting in my iPod:
Ivy creeping up a tree:
My friends and family back east have a hard time wrapping their heads around the fact that it's palm-tree climate here in Vancouver. They think "Canada" and they think "Arctic snow."
The rain makes all the green things so green...
Pretty things can still have spikes:
People keep such beautiful gardens around here. No wonder I like walking around and taking pictures so much! I spotted this colorful pot of flowers from about 100 yards away, and made a bee-line for it:
Look at this little guy, nestled into a wall of greenery:
I know this looks like lavender, but I'm not positive that it is lavender. What do you guys think?
Telephone poll in the city = urban bulletin board.
Stoppin' to smell zee roses:
Seeing bundles of pretty colors all juxtaposed makes me feel happy...
fuchsia, purple, lavender, violet, mint, green, sage, lime:
These roses look like they are ready to be painted red, don't they?
Flowers and green leaves against a tin shed:
Hopefully you aren't all getting sick of seeing pictures of flowers on my blog. There are just so many gorgeous ones around here that you don't see back east. I want to appreciate them all while I still can!
